The fruendliness of the staff and their willingness to help
Conveniently located tomGion and other sites. Friendly staff.
This hotel was beautiful! My then boyfriend (now fiancé) and I traveled to Japan for vacation. After just leaving our 5 day stay in a tiny hotel room in Tokyo, we were delighted by this spacious suite we booked in Kyoto, a very elegant and authentic Japanese-style room on the third floor. The hotel was in a great location considering everything was within a 10 min walk or so– temples, restaurants, Gion district, etc. This was definitely our favorite place we stayed during our trip. And it undoubtedly holds a very special place in our hearts as it was the location where he decided to propose.
Hard to find the location once we got to Japan. Took us over an hour of hailing cab rides, asking for directions, and dragging our luggage bags until we stumbled upon it. (FYI- the official name of the hotel on Apple maps is 'Jun Wafu Ryori Ryokan Kinoe'). There was also a midnight curfew so we didn't /couldn't stay out late.
Location Traditional guest house
Great location, nice staff, clean, close to a bike rental location, close to Gion district, nice restaurants around
No blackout curtain or roller shutter in the bedroom... Ryokan style I guess.
Fantastic place to experience Japanese traditional Ryokan
This place is centrally located for easy walking access to anything you need - food, entertainment, exercise, shopping and nightlife, to categorize just a few things. The staff are professional and extremely accommodating. The in-room dinner was an extraordinary experience!
Our visit was in July during some very hot weather - I would have enjoyed more powerful air conditioning; however, I was comfortable and undistracted from the overall pleasant experience.
just walking distance to restaurants, shops and temples and staffs are friendly, room is clean.
hotels is closed at 00.00, we can not back to the hotel after midnight from night life activities, and check out time need to be on time 10.00 am, if not will get find yen1,000 every 10 minute. for me this ridiculous! this is resort hotel not business hotel that guests will not be hurry in the morning to get checkout on time 10.00am
Central location between Higashiyama and Gion. Easy access even by public transport from Kyoto station. Good english speaking lady in reception. Good guidance for enjoying Kyoto. We had en-suite, but I also enjoyed very much the nice public bath facility with the big hot tub. Nearly everything as acpected in this level.
This was my second visit to a high level Ryokan in Kyoto. Kaiseki dinner was served in the room by a waitress in Kimono as expected, but other evens like the welcome tea and breakfast was done in more ordinary clothes.
Dirty, not convenient, noisy, etc
everything must be changed
Helpful staff spoke good English, helped us get around Kyoto and explained the traditional Japanese meal and room accommodations. Great tub to soak in after a long day. Room was spacious, quiet, and comfortable. Free, fast wi-fi was an unexpected plus.
No non-smoking rooms
Central to Gion temples, short walk to major shopping area around Shoji Hashi. Good value for the Gion area, room had own bathroom and toilet facilities. Main room and sitting area very clean. Refrigerator and tea making facilities. A/C worked well in cooling the whole area. Definitely will use Kinoe in future. Kyoto and Gion one of our favourite places to visit.
My room was at the rear of the building, have had reports that rooms near main road can be noisy, can not personally vouch either way.
Great central location in Gion, excellent service, clean, comfortable, and the food was fantastic
Location was good. Easy to find. close to Gion area with geisha (centre of city). Many different places around.
Cant take drinks in the room. No balcony. Not good for smokey. :(((( closed doors after midnight
Well located for the main sights. Good facilities with a traditional feel and very helpful staff. Overall very good and would stay there again.
Not cheap for what it is. We thought it difficult to find.
great experience to stay in a traditional japanese room. great staff and great breakfast
found a small silverfish in the room...
Ppl there in the hotel are very polite. Room is clean and comfortable.
No one could speak English fluently. It's difficult for the first visited guest to get their travel information. The room is too small as this price.
The location is near a few attraction.
We asked for smoke -free room but it's seem that the hotel has problem dealing with smell from the kitchen even we kept the exhaust fan and ion smoke filter on the whole day, it's not helping at all. I won't recommend this hotel.
Japanese style room Convenient location for sightseeing,shopping and travel
I feel robbed, to pay 330 Euro a night is a robbery. The hotel is not in the historic area but in a main street with a lot of traffic and noise. We ordered western breakfast it came With dry Fish, tofu, noodels and a little spoon of scrambled eggs, half a glass of juice and half a cup of coffe. Nice fresh fruits. Served in the room, well nice but a little stress to be awake and ready when the personal comes 15 - 20 minutes early. The fotos on the web has nothing to do with the hotel. A very good creativ fotografer or use of fotoshop. The personel was Nice but always in stress. The Oncen was nothing moore then a big bathtub. The sittingcorner was two small taburetts. We thougth this was gooing to be a nice end of Our Japan holydays but no, we did not like it at all. You should remove the hotel or change the discription, this is a robbery.
Lovely room, but ONLY after we didn't accept the first room, which was not usable for devoted nonsmokers, the stink of cigarette smoke was VERY strong. Unacceptable. The second room was not entirely smoke free, and we took the ashtrays provided and put them in a closet. YOU NEED NONSMOKING ROOMS!!! That said, the room was lovely, in good traditional taste. Nice linens, good lighting, pleasant veranda with comfortable armchairs, inviting entry garden at front entrance.
See previous item. Overwhelmingly important. Beds and bedding were very nice, food very good and well served. I was a little confused by the public ofuro, which only had a few inches of water in it when we wanted to use. All your hotel staff is very pleasant, but greater English (and other languages, but English is fundamental) capacity is essential.
Great location in Gion, in-house onsen, comfortable rooms.
Location. Near Gion, on major bus routes.
Expected better service for the price.
The hotel was seriously overpriced for what we paid. We could have stayed at the Ritz Carlton down the road, which is where we were staying before we checked in, and they didn't clean up after they served tea and left dishes in room for the day. The carpet and couches in entry were not clean. They charged us more than they stated on booking.com. All Ryokans include dinner, this did not include dinner. The staff was not very helpful. It was on a busy street and very loud. The only slightly redeeming factor was that 2 blocks away you were in a wonderful district where you could walk to many sites.
