lovely staff and very good room with hot tub outside
Full board vey traditional , not suited to our tastes, very expensive. Better to dine locally but not many options available.
Arashiyama is a beautiful town to stay in. Very near Kyoto's many attractions but quiet and with a more traditional feel. Rangetsu is right on the river. Both our sleeping room and our dining area opened on to enclosed gardens. Staff were very helpful and spoke quite adequate English (and cheerfully accepted our attempts at Japanese). The food was traditional and varied.
The service was great. The staffs really care about every small details u need. For example, i was a bit ill and I need to have some hot water with my herbal medicine every morning before breakfast, I asked the first morning and since than, I woke up with a glass of hot water on my dinning table withit the need to make a request. Eventhough the Ryokan is full, you don't feel the existence of other guests. It feels like you have the building all by yourself.
The service was impeccable and warm. The dinner and breakfast were of high quality. Everything was as good as expected. Rangetsu is centrally located, we could walk to all the scenic spots from there.
As soon as we entered the ryokan we were greeted at the door, and our belongings were attended to immediately. Our bags were brought directly to our room. The room itself was clean, comfortable and spacious with an amazing view of Arashiyama mountain. The onsen facilities were comfortable and in excellent condition; would definitely recommend for colder months. Breakfast was a Japanese-style meal and the kitchen considerately prepared a vegetarian/meat-less menu for is. The food tasted delicious.
Location is a bit difficult to get to from the nearest public transport (Randensaga train station) and about 10 minutes walk on foot.
The service of the staff was impeccable. Location was right in front of the river and a stone's throw to the main shopping street and temple sights. Outdoor and indoor public bath,as well as private wooden bathroom. Close proximity to Shoraian, an amazing restaurant in the forest.
This is a modern, newly built ryokan, so you won't get that traditional feel if you are looking for that. The kaiseki dinner and breakfast were beautiful and elaborate but not very tasty - somehow lacked the umami taste known in Japanese food - rather disappointed as I decided to take this hotel despite the super high price for the meals. Room was very small and after they moved the table to set out the futons, there wasn't space to walk without stepping on the futons! For the price, it is a great one night experience for the luxury, but I would stay somewhere else for a longer stay.
For dinner my wife had a Steak course for Y 7.500 and I had a Kaiseki cuisine for Y 9.500. With the exception of the main course all the other plats were identical and do not justify the much higher Price. For breakfast we had on two out of three days the American breakfast (included in the room Price). We were surprised to find on the final bill charges for the second and third Cup of coffee eg tea. It is a nice but expensive Rijokan.
Meals were a real treat with 10-12 courses per dinner and a set menu for breakfast of about 10 items. Onsen public facilities are nice with an indoor and outdoor bath. Cedar bathtub in your room but a bit small for 1.95m person. Very zen like and calming place. Location is Arishiyama neighborhood which is way out on west edge of town. Close to some nice tourist site but a 3,200 yen cab ride from station. Once i figured out trolley and subway this issue was resolved. I was suffering some back issues from air flight so the baths were great. The floor chairs and futons caused some issues.
Futons were OK but had some back issues before arriving and this did not help. Few comfortable places to rest in room. Expensive stay, good experience.
The ryokan staff are completely devoted to serving guests and anticipate your every need beforehand. We were really impressed with the facilities and the peace and quiet. It is very conveniently located to visit Arashiyama and for transportation. The staff speak English well, which is uncommon in Japan, but we had some fun comparing Japanese Kanji to find the gate-only written in Japanese!! If you can't read Japanese make sure you take a copy of the main gate picture and the name in Kanji.
Everything was perfect, even the food we had never tasted before.
Immaculate service! Attentive, helpful, took the extra mile to ensure that we had a comfortable stay. Great location @ Arashiyama area. Highly recommended!
Suggestions: 1. Maybe a small stool/bench at the doorway of each room for guests to wear their socks before leaving their rooms 2. Extra clothes bar/hook opposite basin for guests to hang their clothes/towels. 3. Maybe some English channels on tv?
A small elegant hotel by the river with lovely Japanese gardens, where you would experience the traditional Kyoto style service
A bit expensive
Wow! WOW! What a place - absolutely beautiful location, in the astonishingly lovely Arashiyama (bamboo groves / Japan's oldest gardens etc...) and a great place! Lovely people and excellent service from all at the Rangetsu. Our room was on the ground floor with a lovely Tatami matted room, with garden! Separate Loo / dressing room and the most amazing bathroom I have ever seen - cedar wood bath and wet room - AMAZING! The food (we had dinner and breakfast) was delicious and all well explained by our waitress Erica (awesome Erica) - who had studied English in Australia so I think quite enjoyed our questions about all of the food. The breakfast was equally awesome (Japanese breakfast) and, well, the whole thing was just amazing!!!
Our first luxury ryokan. We had a traditional Japanese double room (without ensuite external bath); a great experience! Everything from room to food was perfect with great attention to details. Sento in the ryokan with inside/outside pools. Very kind and professional staff who provided us a humidifier for the room when my wife was caughing. The price is high but fair and corresponds to the high quality of this accommodation. I would recommend this place to anyone!
Small detail: it is not a question of money but I was surprised that after a coffee was proposed at the end of the breakfast, it was further charged...
Very nice staff with excellent English. Very clean. Amazing breakfast. We stayed for 6 days and the breakfast was different on every single day. Fantastic location, just next to the river, and only 10 min walk to the JR station. Quiet at night.
Being our first time in a ryokan, we were more than pleased with our choice. The staff were extremely helpful and polite and helped us settle in. The facilities were first class and we enjoyed our stay.
It wasn't exactly cheap to stay there, but I guess you get what you pay for - quality and comfort. Not quite central as it is in a quiet street by the river which can be dark and deserted in the evenings.
It was an amazing Place, and can't wait to come back!
