A little noisy at night
April 6, 2015
It was extremely noisy at night and early in the morning because it's right next to the road. Don't expect five star luxuries like a western hotel for the price
We stayed for 4 nights and had breakfast each morning that was different. Location was very central. The stuff was quite friendly as well Very authentic feeling of an old Japanese arm with a really pretty garden and water features

The room, the service

Great location, hospitable staff, delicous food and lovely room

The staff were very impersonal and when we requested their help making a reservation in Tokyo there was some hesitation. The service during the very expensive dinner was mediocre with dirty dishes being left on the table and poor explanations of the food. The bath was not nearly as elaborate as depicted online. The ryokan is in central Gion at a very busy corner and we heard traffic all night long.
Location is very easy for sightseeing albeit loud. The rooms are large but very impersonal and appear new - I was expecting a traditional old ryokan. The room TAN faces right on the waterfall - beautiful.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, despite being a traditional Japanese experience which required us to try new things (sleeping on the floor, onsen, food) they made us feel at home and very comfortable. Location is central, food was exceptional and the onsen was amazing.

Very friendly staff all dressed in authentic attire! Couldn't be more helpful. The room was very comfortable and atmospheric. Highly recommend booking an 'in room' massage. Kaiseki dinner was amazing.

A beautiful luxurious ryokan in the heart of Gion, tranquility and traditional culinary artistry and hospitality to make your stay in Kyoto authentically relaxing and memorable.

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!!

Back sleeping room had no windows and was noisy due to a rumble (subway?).
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.

Like all Kaiseke meals, they were quite large. My husband and I could have shared one and still been fully satisfied.
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.

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"

nothing - it was PERFECTION
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
