Excellent location Friendly & courteous staff Fabulous food Great facilities
We really like the staff (especially Ayako and yuna) they are very friendly and really helpful... For hotel facilitates, its very wonderful and u really can feel how stay in Japanese Hotel,
The was staff very helpful and friendly. The room was perfect. Ryokan Gion Hatanaka is located in a great location with walking distance to many of Kyoto's temples and shines Don't miss out on the public hot bath in the basement. You can easy walk to nice restaurants and shops.
Beautiful architecture and gardens. We gave small children and they couldn't wait to get down to the public bath each evening.
The futon were thin and uncomfortable and there was nowhere to open our bags except in the middle of our sleeping/living area which looked messy and spoilt the ambience.
Location is very good, in the heart of Gion.
We booked for dinner and breakfast, both were served in our bedroom as they said the restaurant was closed. I did not find the atmosphere serene at all, even a bit stressful. For the price I'm sure we could have found better.
Definitely try dinner and breakfast. Great experience. Wonderful baths - we loved it!
The staff were so extremely helpful. I've never experienced anything like it. We can't wait to go back. The rooms were spacious and charming and overall we had nothing to fault. Highly recommend.
This ryokan was located in the middle of most of the popular sight seeing spots in eastern Kyoto. The staff was very helpful by providing unmatched service. The staff helped call a taxi for us, carry luggage to/from taxi, and provided us hand warmers since it was really cold outside. The room was very clean just as how most of Japan is. I find sleeping on floor on the futons to be more comfortable than a bed.
If you want to experience a ryokan in Japan, Gion Hatanaka in Kyoto is an excellent place. The meals are delicious and filling while the service is excellent. The room that we stayed in was very huge. There was a public bath in the ryokan, but we didn't go there. The Maiko and Geiko performance was so much fun and fascinating. Even the audience was able to participate. The location was just great. Right next to the ryokan is a temple, and if you walk around the neighborhood there are many shops.
The only downside of this ryokan is that it was a bit cold. The heat comes out from an air conditioning unit. We got 2 portable heaters and that made it endurable. But we had to carry the heater to the bathroom when taking a shower.
This place was amazing. So clean and the staff were just gorgeous. This is the best traditional place we've stayed in Japan. Also right next to a beautiful shrine only a short stroll to the old shops/restaurants in Kyoto.
staff can speak Chinese, patient and friendly. Staff could identify your belongings

The staff at the front desk was super helpful and they spoke English! The room and location were gorgeous!
The staff can speak fair English and the food is nice. The location is just next to Yasaka Jinja and Gion. You can take buses, keihan and hankyu line which are just in walking distance. The overall experience is excellent and I'm definitely come back next time when I'm in Kyoto.
The staff spoke fluent ensign and were knowledgable . Room was spacious, very clean and had all the things u may need including traditional pajamas . Traditional Japanese bath was very nice with a very well equipped dressing room. The lobby was very cozi and pleasant . Totally a great stay.

Once, no razors left in the men's bathroom. But what a small point compared to all the wonderful thoughtfulness in the room and hotel.
The location is great. Everything is closeby. The walks around Gion at any time of the day is great. Ideal place for splendid holiday with the family.
Perfect location and a true authentic experience
just perfect. great services with good location.
needs to wake up for early breakfast and could never sleep again since everything were packed back by the server.
We decided we would splurge and spend 1 night in a traditional ryokan in Gion, Kyoto. Upon research, there were many options within all different price ranges and the best ones book up really fast. At least 2-3 months in advance during high season (we stayed in November). I was worried because I read mixed reviews of this property but my husband and I both enjoyed our stay thoroughly. We booked a standard room with a wooden tub and it had a lovely view on a small Japanese garden. The room was spacious and comfortable. The lovely lady assigned to our room spoke English and fluent Chinese. She was really sweet and I enjoyed chatting with her. We did not select the Maiko experience, but the food served in our rooms were delicious! The breakfast portions are huge, so don't snack before. Also, the public bath was never crowded and a luxurious experience as a whole.
Lack of male staff to assist with our heavy luggage. I felt guilty and uncomfortable with the beautiful ladies in kimonos lifting our heavy luggage. Where were the men?
good location, convenient
considering the price, service and food quality is only so-so. definitely not worth it.

Cant think of anything we didnt like
Location/authenticity Ability to meet geisha at a dinner event
Lack of drawer space apart from a small hanging rail meant living out of a suitcase. It would have been helpful if there had been an english transatlion of the breakfast/dinner menus
