“basic, but comfortable”
Reviewed 2 September 2009

easy enough to find. rooms not too spectacular, but big enough. maid service cleans every day it seems. bathrooms were shared, but shower room was very large.
staff was friendly and helpful and spoke some english. meals were available (for a fee) but we did not try them. easy access to subway.
overall, decent accommodations at a decent price.

Good price, reasonably comfortable.. Very basic but in a good location with easy access to the city. rooms are small and bathrooms shared, but a good deal for the price.

It is a ryokan, that is it has a bathtub with warm spring water. But it is a normal concrete building. Tatami-mats and futons and traditional Japanese breakfast (if you like that). Clean, no frills rooms. The receptionist/son was very helpful and was good at English. No internet I think. Close to a station, shopping area. I liked the place but it is neither romantic nor luxurious. But Japanese. When I stayed there, 50 Japanese students were there too. I would stay there again. Normal sized rooms.

We found the Meiryu to be a really comfortable, friendly and cruisy place to stay. I travelled to Nagoya in a group which split up and stayed a various places in similar price ranges (budget!) and I felt the we got the best deal by far. Tatami matt rooms are small as it seems with most Japanese accom, but always clean and, being off the main street, quiet. Rooms have closets, TV and free tea making gear. We had the vegetarian breakfast there which was delicious and cost us 400 yen each (4 aus dollars). The male & female bathhouses are open 24 hours and I loved coming in after a night out and having a good scrub & soak before bed. The owners are super friendly and the son seems to be working around the clock - which was great as he speaks excellent english and went above and beyond to help us with directions and so forth.

There's also free internet in the foyer.

It is a short walk to the great Osu markets and about a ten or fifteen minute walk to Kanayama station (or about 800 yen in a cab). There is a subway station 2 minutes walk from the Ryokan so everything is close. We walked to the Sakae nightclub district in about 20 minutes.

All in all we loved staying here. We travelled to other cities and when we got back to the Meiryu it was like coming home! We were very happy with the price too..

Make sure you get the map of how to get to the hotel. They are available at the front desk. The cab drivers struggle to find it and there are a lot of one way streets in the area!
