Breakfast, Close to train station, Room Design, Polite, Clean
No Concierge Service, No Supermarket nearby, Hard to communicate with the housekeeping/maid as she don't speak english.
The food was wonderful! The staff were most welcoming and eager to please. We had our own kimono-clad beautifully presented young lady to serve our meals, set out our beds on the tatami mats and store them the next morning. We had our own bathroom and hot pool. The public onsens (hot pools) upstairs were relaxing, and hot - but not too hot (There are separate rooms and pool for each sex, since bathing is nude). Room imparted the ryokan flavor, but modern concessions were there where they would be appreciated: TV, modern Japanese hot water toilet, modern handbasin/vanity, own hot tub, soft mattresses and quilts which made for comfortable bedding and sleep, Wi-Fi availability.
Nothing really. We arrived by taxi - the premises are not on a main street, so they might be a challenge to find on foot. Suggest taking a subway train on the Keihan line to Kiyomizu-Gojo Station. Seikoro is only about 150 metres from the exit.
Amazing staff, beautiful facility, elegant service far beyond what I've had before.
Facility all greeted with a smile and were courteous. Limited English didn't stop them from trying their best to accommodate any of your needs. Very clean rooms and Relaxing Atmosphere. Provided me with postcards as a souvenir.
There are probably much cheaper Ryokans that provide the same service. Although dinner and breakfast were delicious, nothing luxurious for the price. May feel cluttered for some from the amount of decorations.
Overrated in comparison to other Ryokan where I have stayed in the past. Bathroom modern and well equipped. Furnishings appeared a bit worn. Nice staff.
Overall a bit expensive for the experience.
Very cozy and comfortable room. Nice staffs. Amazing building!
The location. Only train is nearly by. Not too many restruants.
Beautiful entry & setting, very "old Japan" flavor. Good location
A bit worn. Would have liked better English & more info on what is happening
The service was unbelievable. So much attention to detail. Took great care of us. Very nice people. The room was absolutely beautiful. And I am so happy I got to stay at a ryokan and still had a private bathroom (small bladder sufferer here!). The kaiseki dinner was beautiful and delicious. Make sure you like fish though. Because my mother (not a seasoned adventurer like myself) was quickly getting tired of fish and miso soup by the time we came to Kyoto, we opted for the western breakfast. It was also delicous and beautiful to look at. They have an onsen on the first floor that I really enjoyed. Very good location, too.
They turned off the air conditioning every night, which was very annoying. We had to tell them to turn it back on. The food was very delicious, but make sure you really like fish. I like fish, but there sure was a lot in the kaiseki. My mother isnt really a fan of fish and couldnt deal with so much of it, so we had to cancel our last night's meal. They were very accomodating and it wasnt a big deal.
Food - Full dinner and traditional breakfast were exquisite. Service - Staff was very helpful towards guests with no prior ryokan experience and little Japanese training. Amenities - Onsen was large and relaxing with great hours (open until midnight).
That there was an Onsen on the spot.
That the Onsen was runned down a bit, they could change the sliding doors as they are stained, the smell of cedar wood is totally gone. Food: compared to other ryokans of similar price we could see that the quality of the food was not the very best. Pillows: were very uncomfortable Noise: from the street
First off, this place is in a great location. Super close to the main train hub (which was helpful because we were walking everywhere) as well as a sort of "downtown" area with lots of shops and restaurants and several shrines/temples in a really beautiful park. The traditional Japanese style dinner was amazing. We got the full order, which was something around 11 courses. The price of it was pretty hefty but you absolutely get what you pay for. We had a room attendant for the duration of our stay and she served us our meals as well as prepared our beds for us. The beds were surprisingly comfortable for being simple futons on the floor. The public bath was our favorite part. Open early in the morning and then again in the afternoon (until very late), it's a great way to begin your day and a great way to end your day after walking around in the cold for HOURS! There is a male and female bath and while they are public, I only ran into about 5 people over the entirety of our stay. The staff was extremely friendly and do everything they possibly can for you. We happened to be staying in town during the spring equinox festival and our attendant provided us with maps and info about the attractions for the festival. We also wanted to purchase an all day city bus pass to help us get to some of the places on the complete opposite side of town and before we even asked, voila! Our attendant had them ready for us!
Absolutely nothing was wrong with our stay. It was perfect!
In room service was amazing. Onsen (hot tub) was great.
Wi fi slow.
The atmosphere of Seikoro Ryokan is properly the best and most genuine among all old-time Ryokan that we have ever been to. Both my wife and I had a good time there and enjoyed our stay very much!
No possibility to take jointly bath, only same gender rule
Nice, quite, and relaxing place. Very friendly and helpful staff. Japanese breakfast was great. Onsen was great; would be great if they operate at late night.
No cable tv.
Nice size rooms and interesting little zen garden view. There appeared to be a lot of traditional touches which perhaps if we spent more time there we would have had the chance to understand. There is a private maid per room to assist with your needs. There was one gentleman who helped with directions and he is the only person there who speaks English.
For an upmarket ryokan charging premium rates there were several factors amiss. There was no welcome drink or brief chat. The staff cannot speak any English. The bed spread was torn on one of our beds We asked for some advice on the first day where we clarified about a specific restaurants operating hours only to find out when we went that it was shut. As an apology we were given some cake which yurned out o be stale! Overall not the standards we expected at all. The location is hard to find if traveling by taxi. The only mode of public transport around was the tube station which is not very good in Kyoto.
We love this hotel so much! Almost don't want to go home!
Slightly expansive for us…
everything!: food,service and facilities provide a very authentic experience. exceeded my expectations.
location is a bit off the major attractions but not a huge problem as it is close to public trasnport and taxis are widely available.
