After reading reviews, looked forward to this ryokan and was sorely disappointed. The narrow green concrete walled room was small, grim and had us out in the rain rather than remaining in such an unpleasant space. The young women were pleasant but we never got a smile or acknowledgment of our presence from the elderly man at the entry. The... More

We chose this Ryokan because my daughter told us we had to experience at least a couple of nights in a real Japanese hotel during our trip to Japan. Being somewhat older than the average traveller, I had some trepidation but agreed to go ahead. First, the Ryoken itself. It is well sited, close to the castle, gardens and the... More

We stayed here for three nights. Rooms are big but simple. Most of the staff speak good english and they are all very service minded and friendly. The ryokan has a shuttle service to the railway station upon leaving. The food is great and plentyfull!' Choice of western or japaneese breakfast. Location is perfect and close to all major sights!

The best thing about the Nakayasu Ryokan is the experience of staying at a family run Ryokan. The breakfast provided in the morning is also very tasty and feels authentic. The rooms and lobby are clean - but feel slightly worn. There's nothing luxurious or fabulous about the place (words some reviewers have described) but it feels comfortable and convenient.... More

This is a cheap roykan experience and for the price, we would not have expected much more. But the hotel is looking tired and dated, and everything is very basic. Unfortunately the service was functional and not very friendly. The location is close to the park, and not far from the market (which are two of the highlights of Kanazawa),... More

This large ryokan is in a good location, relatively close to the Omicho market (we ate here a coupe of times for good sushi) and Kanazawa castle. We walked to the ryokan from the train station, though it was probably a good 20 minutes or so. The room was a very good size, though had a distinct tatami smell to... More

As some reviews state, photos are deceptive and Nakayasu is actually a pretty large establishment. There's a spacious lobby, homely lounge, and large gender separated, onsen-like baths. The rooms feel a little dated but they are very well kept. Service was immaculate. The young girl insisted on carrying my luggage up the stairs for me, and everybody will try to... More

We stayed two nights at Nakayasu Ryokan, after traveling through Takayama and Narai. The hotel is conveniently located. It is only a short walk from the train station. The room is comfortable and traditionally styled. On our first night, we had dinner at the hotel: it was quite a feast. Our server is a university student who does part time... More

We choose package include dinner and breakfast. At check in they have some difficulty to find our booking despite we book directly with the hotel but everything is ok. Dinner and breakfast arenot so good compare with what we have at yamakyu ryokan in takayama.there is no transportation service here.

Our room was pretty small but it was the only one left in the hotel when we booked. it was very worn and smelled of smoke. However - everything else was fantastic. the food was incredible and the staff friendly. The bathing facilities were also spacious and clean. It was well located near all the tourist attractions and was a... More
