We loved everything. The staff were all lovely and accommodating. Simple, clean, relaxing. Shared bath/shower room with great deep hot bath and complimentary yukata robes to borrow while you’re there. Recommend the traditional Japanese breakfast for at least one morning of your stay. Kids loved the experience of us all sleeping on futons in a shared room. Easy, direct 15 min walk from Kyoto station, only a few minutes from a convenience store and a simple but yummy Japanese curry chain outlet just around the corner. Would love to come back :)
lovely traditional ryokan- near to local train station. hosts are very friendly and accomodating. great japanese breakfast.
Real Japanese style! You can wear a yukata in the inn and go to a traditional bathroom with showers and a hot bath. I also tried the breakfast and dinner that were delicious !! Staff is really nice and helpful. I had a really calm and relaxing time there. It is close to a lot of great sightseeing sites too.
Maybe the bathtub could be renewed a bit -some places were a bit rusty. If you don’t speak a word of Japanese it can be complicated. I do speak a bit so that was ok for me.
Very good experience on the pure Japanese home atmosphere. Location well place as not too far from the Kyoto train Station but away from the main Gion area which is very busy. It would be great to have access to bicycles from the Ryokan as cycling by the river or in town must very pleasant.
Gorgeous traditional Ryokan. Bathrooms and a little outdated, but very clean. Toiletries and linens were provided. Rooms were clean and private. Air conditioning was divine in the humid weather. There was a hot water dispenser and tea in the rooms and daily room cleaning and fresh linens were provided.
It kept smelling like cigarettes. I’m not sure if a guest was smoking somewhere they weren’t allowed, but the way the circulation is set up, cigarette smoke filled the bathroom while I was taking a shower. Not a very nice experience. The sleeping mats are very traditional and in that respect, very thin, much too thin for me. I stacked a couple on top of each other and that helped a bit. The blankets and pillows were very cozy.
