Score from 424 reviews Very good
This was absolutely fantastic in every single way. The location is great, right next to the Old Town. The facilities are charming and old-fashioned, but clean and functional. The onsen was amazingly comfortable. The staff, however, takes the cake - especially the little old lady who runs it. She was a sheer delight, and made us feel right at home! Definitely returning here.
Nothing bad to say, except that 1) the onsen was often occupied, but that was probably because I tried going there 3 times a day, and 2) I have had much better food at other ryokans. I'd try it just once, and then get dinner/breakfast at Takayama's amazing restaurants the other days.
The meal was amazing, walking around town we saw that we got to try so many in season local delicacies. They looked after our 2 year old as if he was family. They tried to anticipate our needs and wants.
Very warm and welcoming service.Special thank you to Sumiko who served our meals. Old ryokan which hasn't been refurbished and retains "old world " charm.The Japanese friend I was travelling with thought the food was excellent.Recommend one of the rooms overlooking the river.In early February the room was warm.Very reasonable price.Good WiFi.Nice ofuro.Two rooms have own toilet.
Nothing I didn't like.
Traditional ryokan in a lovely location by the river. Fantastic service by the staff who were always attentive, helpful and friendly. All comforts supplied. Excellent Japanese meals.
Friendly staff, tasty meals, incredible surroundings.
Curfew slightly restricting but understandable.
We had a huge room with space for all 5 of us, the staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly (allowed us to check in early, kept our luggage, arranged cabs, called a restaurant, explained the foods). We enjoyed the bath and loved the delicious dinner. An experience we will all remember. And when you consider the cost for dinner and breakfast and for going to an onsen this is a very good value.
Excellent location, the famous morning market and old town are just within a stone's throw. Excellent atmosphere of Japanese traditional house, superb food, service and hospitality.
Loved the host, a lady full of energy and always smiling. Very good place to try the Japanese style accommodation with a nice river view. Really relaxing atmosphere. The dinner is worth a try.
Nothing. Was a perfect Christmas in Japan!
Amazingly friendly staff Impossibly comfortable futon Very central Baths
Bit hard to find
We like about the hospitality that the host provided. Excellent breakfast and dinner. Service 1st class. Location is also convenient, so near the morning market.
Lots of character and tremendous fun.
No shuttle van to station.
A beautifully appointed ryokan. The decor & garden view were excellent and the staff were very friendly & helpful. Wonderful breakfast, served in our room, included miso roasted on magnolia leaf, yum. 2 private onsens, air con & an auxiliary heater added to the comfort.
Wonderful dinners Location Bath Wifi Friendly staff
Nothing really. Sleeping on the Japanese traditional bed was an experience but the whole two night stay was wonderful
We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff was above and beyond helpful and friendly. The place looks like a unique antique shop, which we loved. It was also very relaxing and the onsen was amazing! The food served to us delicious and we really felt we were getting special treatment staying here as they serve you in your room and come in to make your bed. A very unique experience! Thank you!
The price was a bit expensive, but I suppose it's the price you pay for the treatment you get. Great for a one-time experience!
Great location with the room overlooking river (if you like this). Breakfast featured local fare and service excellent.
The room was a lot smaller than I was expecting from pictures on the internet. Just enough room for a double futon and two chairs. OK for 1 night, but not a lot of room if you were staying longer.
Friendly and helpful staff. Relaxed, comfortable and traditional interior. The Japanese breakfasts and dinners were excellent. Location of Sumiyoshi Ryokan is ideal for the local sites.
staff were terrific - food great and location excellent
room was quit small
The owners of the ryokan were incredibly friendly and helpful. The lady speaks good English and ensured our stay was as good as possible.
We loved the location on the river right opposite the market and the friendly staff, the wonderful food and excellent onsen
Delightful stay. If you're looking for somewhere to unwind this is it. Highly recommend the Japanese breakfast and dinner is very much worth trying. Will definitely be going back here.
period building features, beautiful bath, Personal service.
Little english spoken, not a big broom though.
This family run ryokan is about the friendliest place you can find in Japan, or anywhere in the world. The quaint Japanese style rooms are comfortable and the food is great. Nice quiet location overlooking the river. Incredible value for money. This was definitely my favorite in my 2-week trip, even though it was also the least expensive!
Since it is an 100 year old Ryokan, it has shared bathroom and bath facilities. This is quite typical for historical ryokans, but some people may not like to share.
The food served up in your room. Lovely baths also. Really nice sun terrace
