Score from 821 reviews Excellent
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.
Good place to stay..relax , so enjoy,
The room is clean and the staff are helpful
The location is a little bit far from city center.
The location couldn't have been better. Walking distance to the palace, quick cab ride to many fun things in Kyoto. They provide many optional amenities that are lots of fun. Like getting dressed as a Maiko, Japanese crafts, and dinner (the sukiyaki is great!)
- Nice rooms in traditional tatami style which was a novelty for our children (but note that this is in a modern building, not the old-style ryokan) - lovely indoor onsen, wonderful way to relax after a full day's exploration - helpful staff - clean rooms, we have everything that we need
The staffs are very friendly and helpful. Very good services were provided to the guests.
i like the bathhouse and the lobby... Thank you!
the room is too small for a family of 5... Thank you!
The location is very good, you can take direct single bus to many tourist spots such as Gion, Arashimaya, Kinkakuji Temple etc. The city centre is in walking distance. Good base to explore Kyoto.
Wifi in the room practically did not exist. Not sure about other rooms, but couldn't be bothered to complain about that since we had 3G. No private hot spring bath facility
Very traditional Japanese hotel。Clean and comfortable。Good experience in Japan。Good staff，many information in desk
A little far away from Subway。But it is ok for traveler without big luggage
Well-located for exploring north and central Kyoto in particular, near to subway stops and excellently placed for bus travel to essential places like gold and silver pavilions. 7-11 store q near for international ATM and Gion in walking distance for a night out.
It functions fine but it's a little down at heel for its prices. Reception area dowdly though very spacious. Rooms are similar -no real complaints but a little faded and futons not very comfortable. You'd feel it was a good deal if half the price.
