they have to improve on the cleanliness of the toilets especially since these are shared with other guests.
the location and the overall ryokan experience.
Clean and very close to the station
Doors locked at 11:00. No chance to explore any nightlife.
Location close to train station. Lovely traditional Ryokan.
The staff was friendly and helpful, although they mostly spoke japanese, they are proficient in English. Interesting, and more rustic/realistic ryokan experience. Very convenient location. Keep in mind the 11pm curfew and you'll be fine. Also, they don't have elevators, so if you travel with elderly make sure you request a room on the first floor. The staff were nice enough to accede to all of our requests. :)
No food available
We are not comfort with On Zen (share bathrooms)
Accommodations: room style.
The time limit of using private shower room and the time of locking the door.
The location is very good, just 2-3 minute walk to Kyoto Station. Staff can speak English, at least can give the suggestion for dinner. Ryokan style of mattress, room is quite big when compare to another.
The staff was not nearly as friendly as in previous places I stayed in Japan. Maybe due to language barriers. The 11PM curfew too: if I am paying for a hotel I expext to have total access to my room: it was not a big deal as sightseeing in Kyoto is so intense that going to bed early is reasonable, but anyway...
The location and the relatively big space of the room compared to what I found in Tokyo at least. The futon was really comfortable and I found a tea pot in the room for use to my convenience that really enjoyed.
curfew at 11pm but managable.
location, room size (single room compare with triple room), share bath
Only one shower room for the whole guest house, so expect to queue unless you get in first.
Very close to the railway station, so practical for travelling around.
Public restroom is better than I thought, pretty clean. If there is private bath room would be perfect.
The traditional Japanese style room is so amazed and we loved it so much. The room is very clean and served with snacks, tea and hot water. Our kids loved the room so much and I am so glad that we can experience the traditional Japanese room. The location is perfect and service is very good too.
A little noisy at night. The second nigHt everyone was quite. Great location.
The chap on the front reception
Only one pillow provided. Unable to check-in before 4pm. I believe this is normal in Japan but it would be nice for there to be some flexibility.
Easy to walk from the station as it's only 350m. The Japanese style bath was fantastic.
Shower hour is only up to 11pm, but managable. Futon and pillow is a bit thin. Single room's size is good, but triple room's size (With attached bath and toilet) is a bit small that one of us was sleeping in front of toilet entry. Curfew at 11pm, but no big deal.
Location is great, just 9 min from Kyoto train station, and that is a Daiso on the way to hotel. Room and Shared bath is very clean.
worst experience of Japan, the only one place for 15 days in Japan, where staff was obnoxious, absolutely cheap version of all. We want to stay three nights,but we stayed only one and found the same money many times better hotel.
Great Location Big and Clean Room
Very near Kyoto JR station, Kyoto tower and sukiya gyudon restaurant. Male staff extremely helpful
Futon in room was very comfortable. Toilet and sink in the bedroom. Japanese style bathrooms downstairs and private shower downstairs. Coin-operated laundry. Free wi-fi works in the bedrooms. Tea and sweets everyday, along with cute omiyage fan-postcards when we left. Location is perfect for sightseeing, only 6 minutes from the buses at Kyoto station by foot, and there is a grocery store and convenient stores around the corner.
