Tranquility - the rest of the tourist chaos just melts away as soon as you walk into the Ryokan! Not the traditional outdoor onsen experience but aside from that - it was a fabulous experience!!
The food was excellent! We ate there three nights, four mornings and never a repeat. Each food item was explained by the staff. Dining room has beautiful garden view. The staff is genuinely interested in your needs. Our room had enclosed deck with view of square in front of Yasaka Shrine.
Back sleeping room had no windows and was noisy due to a rumble (subway?).
Of the 3 Ryokan we visited while in Japan, Yuzuya served the most delicious dinners and breakfasts. The server was professional, yet smiley and kind. Unlike some ryokan, we had the option to have dinner with them or eat out. The glass garden courtyard made the dining even more special. How wonderful to have the garden courtyard in the middle of the city.The staff was superb and their english skills were very good. I needed laundry services, but ryokans don't offer some services that western hotels do because usually people only stay one or two nights. One of the staff found a laundry service that would pick up and deliver. The onsen with the floating yuzu fruits was beautiful, a perfect way to relax after touring all day. I consider our stay at Yuzuya a spectacular one.
Like all Kaiseke meals, they were quite large. My husband and I could have shared one and still been fully satisfied.
Definitively overpriced for what you get. If you don't know already Kyoto don't expect suggestions from the staff. Cost of $500 per night excessive for the "cultural experience"
The attentive service of Ikeda and her protégée Yukari was extraordinary. Everyone was so pleasant and patient - All the staff were top notch. The attention to detail and beauty in every aspect - the staff, the food, the rooms, the bathrooms, the amenities. The beautiful stone steps and waterfall. The red room, the cedar bath, THE FOOD! Hospitality at its finest. Warm, cozy, beautiful, restorative. I did not want to leave. YOU MUST STAY HERE IN KYOTO - NOW - FOREVER
nothing - it was PERFECTION
The lovely atmophere, veiw on the garden, excellent breakfast
The price: we thought inner was included as in all ryokans usually, but it was not!
Everything! from the bed settings, the japanese bath tubs, the breakfast, dinner. It was a very pleasant stay
Food was excellent and so was the service from staff. Location is very centrally located.
the food preparation was exquisite, excellent food. the zen ambiance at breakfast and very attentive staff.
As in any ryokan. there's a corresponding slipper for every place. so staying in a ryokan necesitates constant changing of slippers.
Where does one start with Yuzuya? I stayed for two glorious nights and the place is amazing. Worth every penny: the room is beautiful, with antiques and everything just so. The highlight is the food! I had two dinners and both were some of the best food I have ever eaten. Exquisitely presented on Kyoto pottery, each dish was a work of art. Breakfast was also amazing. This is a very special place- stay here if you can. You'll be a 10 minute or so walk from many of the top temples and walking areas. I cannot recommend Yusuya highly enough.
Warmth and friendliness of the staff, beautiful surroundings, lovely dining room with beautifully prepared and served food
The steep, wet staircase to enter the Ryokan. The dim light in the bathroom, hard to put makeup on and that was the only mirror.
Perfect location Superb staffs
-The atmosphere-stunningly peaceful and beautiful traditional ryokan - The breakfast (included in room rate)- meticulous and very tasty -Restaurant- so stylish, goes well with its plates and food -Good location
-Steep stairways both in front of and inside Ryokan, not easy for elderly non-Japanese clients! -Indifferent senior front staffs, contrary to the young who are much more cheerful and hospitable
A traditional ryokan, with modern facilities & serviced by attentive staff. Its well located & easily accessible. The Japanese breakfast is excellent.
Staff was great while we stayed at the hotel. Very accommodating.
We asked for our bags to be stored after we checked out. Came back to drop some things off with our bags and the woman literally threw us and our bags to the street.
typical japanese 'hotel' best for relaxation during a city trip very nice common bath with clementines sympathatic service with individual ideas new ikebana every day in my room
