The opportunity to stay in a Royokan, location to Shoji Dori and subways for sightseeing, the staff who with little English did their best to accommodate requests.
Property is bit tired and grubby ie in need of a paint and repairs. A new kitchen exhaust system would not go astray to remove cooking smell from halls and rooms. Family room window opened partially to building next door.
Comfy and warm futon. Clean. Located within walking distance to key attractions. Lots of food and shop around the hotel. Excellent breakfast.
Some staff were rather cold/rude. Bathhouse was so so.
Great location to eateries and street arcade
Bathroom is way too tiny and is in need of some refurbishing.
Close to restaurants, shopping, transport. But the room we had was quiet even though it was on the Main Street overlooking the park. Very helpful staff. Le Pain Quotidien is right beside hotel and great for breakfast.
Room are a bit dated and could do with being refreshed. Futons are a bit too hard and might not suit everyone.
Nothing really except the location of the hotel in Kyoto
Very snob Staff , it seems that they did not need our money Very Very high price in a Ryokan excluding dinner & breakfast Not even a kettle in the room to make the coffee , we had to take hot water from the reception ( Three star hotel ????) Bath was poor and some of it on repair in the high season
The location was quite good.
Everybody could smoke in the hall in front of the reception. The room and the bathroom were not clean enough.The smell of cooking in the corridors, early in the morning was intoxicating. Nobody told us at the check in that the breakfast would have not been served in the room, like in a traditional Ryokan, but in a common room downstairs. Anyway the quality of the brekfast was poor as well as the conditions of the bedroom, despite the price quite expensive.
The hotel is clean and well located with easy access to restaurants and subway station.
Minor mix-up with the room at the very start but staff was quick to rectify the problem.
Staff were amazing. They spoke great English and were very polite and accommodating. They provided umbrellas when it rained and helped us book a taxi to the station when we had an early start. The location was great, very close to Shijo station. Would stay here again!
Air conditioning unit was really loud. Made it a little difficult to sleep.
Considering that hotels in Japan tend to be small, this was pretty worth it for the amount of space you got. However the toilet and shower area was a bit too small for my liking, but perhaps people who are smaller sized might be fine with it. Overall it was very comfortable sleeping on the futons. The blankets were thick and provided sufficient warmth. The staff were friendly and spoke decent English, so it wasn't too hard to communicate with them. The location, I think, was the best. It was maybe a 10 minute walk to the arcade, and from there another 10 minute walk to the city center where everything was. It was very walkable and it's impossible to get lost.
The small toilets, although in all fairness most toilets in Japan tend to be a bit on the small side. The pillow was also too small and a bit too hard. I'm not sure if this is the standard to traditional Japanese-style beds, but I wish it was a bit bigger and fluffier. It wasn't terribly uncomfortable but it could definitely have been better.
Great location! Staff were very helpful, even with their limited English. They helped us to reserve tickets for a show, lent us free umbrellas and gave us directions. Clean hot springs added a welcome relief after hours of walking. Our Japanese style room was a nice change from western beds, but I found two futons not enough for me, so I had to add a couple of futons to my stack. Otherwise no regrets. Would stay there again!
Location is very good. Walking distance to the city center. Stuff didn't speak a lot of English, but was very helpful.
For some reason I would expect that if I have to sleep on the floor and my room has almost no furniture the price will be lower then in a western style hotel. Unfortunately that was not the case.
The style of accommodation was traditional and the staff were friendly. Great location
Location is near Shijo Excellent Breakfast
Location quite convenient. That's it.
1. The hair dryer exposed when I was drying my hair and that scared me to hell. 2. The attitude of the personnel at the night shift is a bit impolite. Not talking about having the expectation towards the service style in japan. I mean in general, he is not friendly and professional. (He even said I may lose my appetite if I try the breakfast at the ryokan... That's weird) 3. You have to take the kettle down for hot water replacement. 4. The public bath is very small and the water in the bathtub is not even warm... All in all, not recommended. There's a lot of introduction of this ryokan in travel books and on internet but I can tell those are paid words obviously after I personally stayed there with my parents for 2 nights. it's way tooooo disappointing and doesn't worth that amount of money.
Hot bath was good.
very nice Japanese style room. Highly recommended!
easy access to localsights. public bath was excellent
rooms are rather sterile
We liked the Japanese style and enjoyed a few different days accommodation
Traditinal japanese hotel with extremly good japanese breskfast. Hotel in the heart of town and very silent for best sleeping condition. This hotel is a must-go when in Kyoto.
Staff were extremely friendly and one in particular spoke very good English, making communication a lot easier for us. They kept our luggage for many hours after we checked out and were happy for us to use their computers when we came back. (We only stayed one night) The Wifi is very good and the rooms are quite spacious. The futons and pillows were comfortable and clean. Very close to Nishiki Market. Breakfast was amazing and the waitresses were so cute and friendly !
It is obvious that some of the furniture/fittings were very old and needed replacing. The bathrooms were not clean, there was mold on the doors and shower head. In the room that we were in the shampoo and body soap had been watered down... The walls are not very sound proof and we were woken up by kids running around the hallways in the morning. The public bath is small.
Breakfast was excellent and staff serving Breakfast were good. Location was very good, close to the Nishiki Market and walking distance to Kawaramachi, Pontocho, Kiyamachi & Gion. Free sake samples in the lobby & at breakfast.
Service, while somewhat helpful, staff didn't come across as friendly or helpful as we'd come to expect in Japan. For example, we arrived on New years day (which is generally quiet) and it was too late to book food in the hotel. When I asked them for some recommendations of where to eat, I was led to believe that everything would be shut and I'd be out of luck, but they did call one restaurant to confirm it was open. What they didn't say is that if we'd walked a mere 10 mins to the Pontocho/Kiyamachi area, through the covered Nishiki market, there would be loads of places open and we could take our pick. Also when we had dinner in the room the next day, we had to wait over 1 hour and call them twice to clear the table and arrange our beds. Public bath was Ok, but my wife said the ladies bath had some mould on the ceiling which discouraged her from using it. Not many TV channels showing on the TV and be aware a Japanese style room does not have a regular bed or comfy chairs.
Very well located, minutes away from Gion, fish market, shopping area and a few subway stops away from main temples and shrines.
It's EXTREMELY expensive for a big hotel which does not deserve 3 stars. Yes it's very well located and rooms have their own bathroom but that alone does not justify such high prices. The staff barely smiled at us and was not particularly friendly which is an exception in such a heart-warming, welcoming, so polite country. NOT RECOMMENDED.
Great location - reception can help you rent a bike. Biking around Kyoto is a great way to get around - the staff are really helpful in suggesting key attractions to see.
The room was big for two persons, but the futon (bed laid on the tatami floor) was a bit short for a normal sized western people though. The location has a metro station nearby, and close to the attractions on the east side of kyoto.
Wifi was only accessable at the lobby, where was also allowed to smoke. Qutie painful for non-smokers to use the internet.
