Everything! The location, service, confort, interior design and the sense of living in a old house near the water so cozy and romantic and really confortable.

This was in a great location and a wonderful experience of what is it like to stay in a Ryokan. I highly recommend this over any hotel.

Two of the bedroom pillows was uncomfortable, lumpy, rattled, full of plastic balls.
Huge accommodation. Just when they show you one self contained Japanese style townhouse, they show you another 2 storey townhouse to act as your art gallery/peaceful retreat. Staff very helpful eg booking taxi and restaurant. Location was 10min walk to CBD and metro.

Lovely house located in downtown, access to Takashimaya is just 2 minutes walk, Goin is about 12 mins walk, to Kiyomisu Dera temple 20 mins. Great location! Staff is helpful.

Low doorway heights can be a bit troublesome if one is not used to it.
Location was excellent and the adjacent water/ stream with landscaping provided a beautiful setting. Comfortable sized rooms for 2 people, clean and well decored generally. Staff provided an ipad which was useful to get around, allowing free wifi access around the city. Overall the accommodation enhanced the fantastic experience of our stay in Kyoto.

We loved the whole experience, staying in a real Kyoto house but of course with all the luxuries that in the past didn't have (AC, flor heating,...). The house had separate space for day living which we unfortunately haven't used, great music options, ...the whole athmosphere was just perfect.

Ideally located in Kyoto where you can reach by walk places of interest. Beautifull accomadation with nice view on the river. Helpfull staff.

Difficult for taxi to locate and no contact number in brochure to order breakdast delivery - minor stuff wholly made up for by the super staff.

Not for those looking to be pampered by a hotel. You are renting a house and its up to you to take care of yourself. Also there are no English channels on the TV....if you are the lazy type who just wants to waste time watching TV !
You get a chance to live like the Japanese. In your own private house. Close walking distance to Gion and restaurants, also subway. Staff will spend time showing the house and teaching you everything about the area. Taxis also close. Very convenient checkin and checkout. Very nice house. Loved it!

Great location, interior, and service. Wonderful atmosphere.

The was nothing not to like. The only thing that might be a challenge for others is the steepness of the staircase - especially if your mobility is limited.
It was better than we expected. And perfect for my 16 year old son and I. The location was ideal - with the Gion district within walking distance. We really loved the quaintness of the walking street and bein next to the small walking bridge and right along an estuary with a peaceful, trickling brook. The details of this place were exquisite - all the way from the oversized wooden door to the modern mid-century furniture to the design books, retro record players with a variety of singles to the amnesties in the bathroom.

Excellent location, old fashioned style of Japanese house, but bathroom is modern.

I can't think of any.
The place was clean, well maintained and well equipped. The view from inside the stay was spectacular especially during the cherry blossom season. Upon arrival, a member of staff walked us through the stay explaining the different equipments. He also showed us the tourist places and pointed out the nice places and best times to visit. Overall, a very nice experience. I wish I could repeat it.

Not for those who have difficulties getting up and down from the sleeping mattresses on the floor. Coffee and tea wasn't replenished every day as agreed.
Its a nice experience to stay in a Japanese house and the surroundings were very picturesque with flowering cherry tress along the river just outside. Easy to walk to shops, restaurants etc. Very clean and tidy!

Some of their property comes with the very steep staircase which mignt be a bit difficult for old folks.
The property is in a very good location and well maintained. It comes with nice decorative items especially the antique pieces in some of their property.

Location was a bit difficult to find, especially at night.
Amazing modern townhouse / ryokan. Got the traditional experience with modern facilities, perfect! Excellent customer service with a focus on detail like the miniature art museum and the record players.
