Our room was great, beautiful view on the museum building with a little loggia. Ask for room 201.
The rooms are very clean and cozy. The staff is extremely accommodating and friendly.
Everything was perfect !
Meals and service were good. You can dinner served right in your room which gives an authentic ryokan vibe. The value for the price I paid was phenomenal.
Sometimes the hot water in the shower would not work for a while. Kind of a nuisance.
Great location, close to thé station and sightseeing area.
Facilities outside the room were very hot in the summer
This is a quiet ryokan in a good location. Courteous, welcoming check-in staff.
I lived in Japan when I was younger and am fine with the futon / tatami set-up. However, if you can feel the floor beneath you, you are sleeping on a "sembei futon" (rice-cracker futon) that needs to be replaced. That was the case here. Shoji screens let all the light from a bright street light into the room, meaning I was basically trying to sleep in the light. And there only seemed to be one shower for all male guests. Finally, the staff at breakfast just seemed to be going through the motions and doing their jobs. For the same price in Kyoto, you can have a much better experience, with warm hospitality. I was disappointed with this place.
Good location with 5 minutes drive from the Kyoto Station. There are raditional wooden houses like Machiya and much of the Kyoto atmosphere has been left behind. Kyoto National Museum is in front of the hotel and Sanjusangendo is next to the hotel. Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Kodai-ji Temple and Tofuku-ji Temple are also within walking distance. Easily accessible via public transportation. All guest rooms are equipped with wireless LAN.
