Clean and new rooms
Room slightly small for a family of 4 including 2 children
Very convenient if you have a car. Location is excellent for sightseeing, dining, and shopping.
a little apart from main public traffic
Very nice washiki room and food! Really great mokujo?
Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was lovely and very spacious. Great location near train station. Can get a bit noisy at night but not loud. They had my name outside and on the door. Nice touc.
Walking distance to almost everything we wanted to take in. Great parking despite Kyoto's parking problems. Great location to take take in the Jidai Matsuri parade on Oct 22nd.
Spacious room. Free bottled water and snacks. Walking distance of Imperial Gardens. Interesting local area. Quiet. Map for bus transport to attractions. Instructions on bathing etiquette.
Double futon was too hard on floor - problem solved when added another one. Had to take taxi as not directly on bus/train route. Bit out of the centre. No view.
The only good thing is close to river.
Staff is not friendly enough, they don't want to communicate and help. Not worth that money.
Japanese style, different & good !!
Front desk staff a bit unfriendly ....
Close to the station, so great for sightseeing. The place was clean, dinner was delicious, friendly staff
Disappointed with the baths- they don't rotate them for men and women, and I've heard that the men have two baths to choose from but there is only one for the women. Thin toilet paper!,
staff always very helpful, very confortable in the ryokan part, well located by walk or bus for the temples
nothing, we loved this hotel and town
Helpful staff, very clean, good neighbourhood, close to bus route, good restaurants nearby.
Restaurant not open at night. Decor a bit tired.
- The staff was very good and very helpful - The flexibility of the hotel - The room was clean - Refreshments and biscuits - fridge within the room
- The hotel amenities are a bit old fashioned but i would say that all Ryokan in this price range will probably be the same - The bathrooms and wash-room - The 4 mats/futon (incl 2 for the children) would not fit on the full length of the room - we had to do 3 + 1
Hot bath and rooms were excellent, also location good, and staff really kind
Have occupied twice all hot baths in the evening for a summer camp whithout much excuses/discount nor clear warning. Also could not print a boarding pass...a pitty given their relatively high standard (and price)
Good location at a reasonable price, great warm baths in the basement
Helpful staff, good location, nice chance to experience a culturally specific type of accommodation at a very reasonable price.
Could not regulate water temperature in shower, bathroom facilities just adequate.
Room is tidy and clean. Staffs are nice and helpful.
Room ready for sleeping when we returned from dinner. Very good atmosphere
Comfort is poor, no personality, not the image I had of ryokan.
Everything was perfect. Very kind and helpfull staff and employees at the reception and hotellobby. They arranged rental bikes for 10 persons so we could do Kyoto on a bike. Clean sleeping and bathrooms. Nice 'onsen'.
Japanese prices! Staff was very helpful, going above and beyond and answering all of my wife's questions.
Tatamis could be thicker...or maybe we're just getting older...
ryokan experience! public bath
kinda far from the nearest train station
Hotel was OK. You can stay with family, but 3Km from city. Near to Imperial palace gardens.There are restaurant but no English menu available in this neighboorhood.
They indicate they have bikes but no children bikes (they did not help us) During our stay duddenly the hotel was occupied by a group who had some extra advantages and we could not use the bath anymore as before. Kyoto people are not very open to foreigners in compairison to Tokyo people of course in Europe we have same differentiation also Japanese language is different I sometimes understand Tokyo people but In Kyoto I could not.
Hotel location. Excellent staff.
Facilities are old-fashioned. Not non-smoking.
