Near Kyoto Station and Lawson , Staff can explain in English quite well.
If price is a bit lower , excellent.
close to the kyoto station but in a silent street. friendly staff.
a little cold, the air condition cannot work warm enough.
Very clean, Japanese style inn
A bit expensive in general
The main person who runs the ryokan is a sweet man who was very accommodating. I had to change my reservation like 3 times and he was quick to respond and adapt to my requests. Out of the 10 days I was in Japan, this Ryokan was the most comfortable and I had the best sleep, the floor mats were so comfy I really miss them now that I'm back home.
1. Once you know where the place is, it's easy to find. But going to Kyoto for the first time, wandering around the streets with my luggage for over an hour it got pretty frustrating. It's in a tiny little alley way with no large sign. I had to go to another ryokan and ask for directions. 2. There was no breakfast included 3. For those going to Kyoto to "party" this is not the place for you. It's very quite and has a curfew. I am NOT a party person so this was perfect for me
Excellent location (very close to train station, yet in a quiet street; very good range of various shops and eating places nearby; only a 25-minute walk from the Gion area). Friendly and kind staff.
Nothing bad to say. However, there is a 11pm curfew.
The hotel was very well located. Walking distance (3 minutes) to bus stop and 7 minutes to Kyoto Station. Good service and helpful staff.
Can be disturbing when other guests are too noisy
The location was excellent, very near the main station in Kyoto, yet on a quiet side street, so there was minimal noise. There was easy access to all the attractions in Kyoto, as the ryokan is also right by one of the main bus lines. The staff were efficient and friendly, and the ryokan was extremely well cared for. Everything was spanking clean and there were plenty of supplies such as towels and soaps. This is not a luxury ryokan, but if you're looking for good value for your money, friendliness and cleanliness, this is your place.
The only thing this ryokan does not offer that I wish it had was breakfast. There are places very close that serve breakfast but they leave something to be desired.
Staffs are kind and have the ability to speak English. Unlike other Kyoto hotels, the room is big and comfortable. Location is also great. The most special characteristic is this hotel closes every 11 p.m.. But this wouldn't make any trouble, most shops in Kyoto close after 9 p.m..
Clean, basic and convenient hotel, good value for money, close proximity to Kyoto Station makes travelling very easy. For the price it's a great place to stay in if you're just looking for a place to sleep at night.
No mini fridge in the room, or any storage place, have to put all the food/stuff either on the table or on the floor.
The host is really welcoming and very helpful. He will takes of his time to explain you how to get there or there etc. Traditionnal rooms with tatamis and nice decoration. Good Wifi. Computer. Low price.
Very nice staff Excellent location
I like everything of this ryokan.
I think the wall is too thin.
My stay here at Ryokan Kyoraku was outstanding. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were comfortable and very clean. It was a good value as well.
I was a bit apprehensive about booking this place at first, but it ended to be a great choice and value proposition especially if you are just looking for a place to rest after a long day of sightseeing. Although the facilities are shared, it was very clean and well maintained. Staff was friendly and helpful
Staff looked serious. Please smile more :)
The best hotel I have stayed during the trip of Japan, comfortable and convenient. It s just 5 mins walk to Kyoto station, i guess i will still choose here next time when i get back to kyoto.
Hostel owner who is very friendly couple, rooms are very clean, but also hope that the next trip to Kyoto to stay!
The ryokan is close to Kyoto station, the rooms are really nice and the staff is very friendly and helpful.
It would be nice to have a fridge in the room. Especially because you have a curfew from 11pm.
location ( 5 min walk Gion subway), < 5 min Kyoto staton; clean; tea/teapot in the room; free internet with shared computer on 3rd floor; traditional Japanese room style ( I find it very comfortable); Western shower with deep tub; free luggage storage; waking up to gentle gong of bell from nearby Higashi Hongan-Ji temple
curfew but this did not affect me directly as I was in before 11 most nights after walking all day. Plus there was still access to get in if arrived past 11 pm.
Front desk staff is super considerable
A bit pricey
1. Very nice staff person went out of his way to help find unusual shopping item. 2. Clean and comfortable. 3. Convenient location near Kyoto station.
11 pm curfew. Can't be in room between 10 and 3. These restrictions fit my schedule but might not fit those of other travelers. No breakfast.
The front desk staff took time to help me find destinations and helped me book dinner reservations.
Ideal location (near to train station) clean room
service and friendliness
we can hear noise from other room
The staff is as friendly as your own family could be. Japanese tradition at its best
