The owner is a senior Japanese lady, 82 years old already, very nice, very kind. The room is very comfortable. In the end of the day, I have to cut the accommodation by 2 days due to my wife's job, feel quite sorry to her.
This is a good, clean, basic B&B (if you want to breakfast here) ryokan in an authentic setting close to the Imperial Palace, bus, trains and metro stations. The owner speaks a little bit of English. On request, Japanese or Western style breakfast is offered. Don't miss the Japanese style breakfast experience (served either in your room or in an extra room with two tables). While the bathroom is shared, it won't be shared with other people at the same time. There are separate toilets on each floor. There are several restaurants in the surroundings, among them a few posh-looking French ones, but also Burgers, Chinese, Italian and of course a few Japanese ones.
The futon was a bit too thin for my hip bones.
A stay at Nashinoki Inn is essentially a stay in the home of a gracious Japanese Grandmother. She is very friendly, hospitable and sincere. She offers her bicycles for use (Japanese Style, "Mama Chari," with baskets and all). Breakfast was very traditional and good. The value was also very good for Japanese-style accommodations.
While staying Grandma's house is always fun, there are some down sides. The home is a little worn and some of the common areas are a bit cluttered. There are no locks on the room doors, and the futons are not the thickest. That said, we had a wonderful stay, and I would expect the same for most, as long as they know what to expect.
very clean and spacious; good location, English-speaking hostess
although close to subway, not easy to find because the laneway has only Japanese signage. Hostess friendly but overly regimental about scheduling the shower and the use of the hot tub
Staff and Traditional style.
- location (close to the Imperial Palace) - Japanese breakfast (so tasty and so... different: it is quite unusual to eat fish in the morning) :) - free bicycle (take it and go to Arashiyama!) - and, first of all, the staff: so kind, helpful and polite
you might not like the fact that you have a common bathroom, but it is not a problem if you can just wait the others finish their toilet or, what I do recommend, you can go to a sento (Japanese public bath) which is nearby
The friendliness and helpfulness of the landlady, Japanese bathroom, cosy room Japanese style, quiet, close to a busstop within the centre of Kyoto. Amazing breakfast.
Nothing to complain about.
The people running the Inn are really nice. They have bicycles, and as it is out of the downtown area, it is good to be able to ride around. It is very homey, and they give you a nice robe - yukata, to wear after bathing.
The Inn is more like a rooming house with several bedrooms upstairs in a big house. The bathroom is shared, with only one bathing room which has two showers and a tub, which they call the Onsen. - You are supposed to shower off before going in the tub, and everyone uses the same tub water. (There are several toilet rooms though). The quality of the stay really depends on who else is staying there. When I was there, there was a big noisy group, and as the doors are paper (with no locks) and I am a light sleeper, I could only sleep the hours they did, which as a combination of the other guests was from after midnight to 6am. Also, about 12 people sharing one shower room was not too comfortable. I cut my stay short because I needed to be able to rest. When I came back the first night after checking in the afternoon, they had given my room to someone else, although my luggage and items were in it, the owner said she wanted to give me a bigger room. I felt with all the great places to stay, this one was not such a great value. Perhaps if you are a group of ten it could be interesting.
I love this hotel! The owner is a granny,she is really nice and helpful~Love her~I feel like at home~ I will come again!!!
Nice and helpful owner who changed our plans for the day because she thought we had made the wrong choices ;-) We had a nice bath in the evening and slept well despite the thin futons.
You need to take the bus (or the subway) to get to the places you want to see. A little bit worn and old, but with an authentic feeling. Bring earplugs and possibly also a pillow.
A traditional place to stay in a very good location. The owner is extremely kind and was very helpful. Highly recommended.
good location close to the imperial palace and University, very friendly obaachan, typical japanese (small tatami room and bath), good wifi, welcoming tea. I booked it just a few days before my visit which was in June; the price was excellent for the location.
Only the grandma managing the house. It likes a home more than a hotel. I spent a very happy time in here. Hope to visit Kyoto again. Next time, I will still live this place. Thank you, Grandma Yamamori
an excellent atmosphere, friendly poeple
Brilliant authentic ryokan with a lovely owner, we made full use of the free bicycle rental, definitely the best way to see Kyoto!
The hostess was excellent and absolutely accommodating. She provided us with everything from bikes, to umbrellas, and a key to get in after the door was locked.
The only downside was that we had to relocate on our last night in Kyoto when it was overbooked. This was arranged by nashinoki inn with the cost of the taxi covered by them too.
Very Japanese stay and very rewarding experience. Nice Granny and traditional breakfast.All this contributed to living as real Japanese do.
bedroom is comfortable and quiet, owner is a really nice granny, bath room is clean, and always hot water pot in the room. I especially like the free bicycle: it makes me easier to feel this place.
it would be really appreciated if this inn can provide some simple kyoto map like hostels do.
The host's hospitality was first class even though she spoke very little English she made me feel very welcome. Bikes available to borrow was also very useful in Kyoto.
Only one bath/shower room might require some careful timing with other guests, although this wasn't a problem for me.
- very nice and kind owners, great welcoming - huge and delicious japanese style breakfast (but japanese style only) - free use of bicycles
- air conditionner a little bit old and noisy (but it may depend on the rooms) - restrooms very cold in winter
The owner was a lovely and hospitable woman. She made me feel very comfortable and at home. At the end of every long day of sightseeing, she made sure I had a blissful hot tub experience at just the right temperature. The location was excellent and the instructions for finding it were right on. A novelty in Japan, I didn't get lost finding the inn.
My room was completely, functional, a place to sleep and have some hot tea. Very clean but without aesthetics. Nevertheless I would stay here again as it was priced right and the proprietor made up for any lack of decor. Expect bare bones accommodations.
A fabulous authentic experience staying in a small traditional family run inn in Kyoto. The owner is lovely - she carefully explained the Japanese etiquette to us (particularly the numerous changes of footwear!), how to eat our various breakfast delicacies and she even dressed me in the gorgeous 2nd hand kimono I picked up at a flea market! Every day she was interested in following our daily route on the inn's complimentary bikes. The bicycles were a terrific way to get around as the inn is a fair walk from the nearest subway but close to great paths by the river. We were able to see all the sights by bike! We had 2 breakfasts at the inn - both were different and very delicious! The futons were surprisingly comfortable enough and the low chairs had backs! :) The Nashinoki Inn experience was the most memorable of all my hotel stays in Japan!
The Inn is a fair walk from the subway station so I would recommend a taxi ride on arrival if you have luggage. The Japanese breakfast, although delicious, was a little expensive. The one bathroom (Shower and Japanese bath) had to be carefully timed or you may miss out and the shower did run cold a couple of times. But none of this was a huge hassle!
authentic experience, rustic, homey, maternal host, soak tub.
too homey, not luxury-but you should be surprised
