We really liked Yuzuya. It is in the heart of Gion so there is so much to do that you can walk to right outside your door. Despite the busyness of the location, the inn was very relaxing and quiet and a great place to come back to after a day of sight seeing. We stayed only one night but... More

This was a really great opportunity to experience a piece of traditional japan. The rooms were traditional and had lots of space and the staff made sure our beds were made and ready fir us each evening. The traditional Japanese breakfast was fantastic and we both really enjoyed it. We made use of the traditional public baths and both had... More

YR was a great place. Immediately upon entry we were greeted with care. Staff understands English and was willing to help all our questions and needs. Japanese style breakfast was outstanding as well! Location was perfect, right at Gion, so you can walk down one side and wak back on the other. It was wonderful staying here. I would recommend.

We enjoyed our stay here a great deal. The staff are extremely proficient and kind. The room was amazing and very relaxing. And the shared bath was just what you need after vigorous sight seeing in Kyoto. There is traffic noise from around 4am as trucks use the main road which is just metres away. And Gion was a bit...

This ryokan was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Nestled next to a major Shinto shrine in the heart of the old section of Kyoto, it is a serene oasis . The rooms are really suites, the service not only impeccable, but charming and friendly, the food unbeatable. Others who I met there envied my stay and... More

I stayed 3 nights at the Royokan, and wish I had the time to stay 3 more! I booked one of the largest rooms, the 'Blue Room' which had a couple of separate areas - it felt like your own home! When I first arrived, they placed me in the wrong room, so I had a chance to see the... More

Wonderful Ryokan in Kyoto. Right next door to a great park for walking. Easy to miss entrance with steels steps that get slippery in the rain. Definitely eat at least one dinner at the ryokan- excellent authentic kaiseki meal. Its amazing how you can feel like you're in a secluded spot in the country while downtown Kyoto is just a... More

Probably the best hotel where we stayed during our 10-day trip to Japan. We spent our last night in Kioto at Yuzuya Ryokan and I can only say good things about it. The ryokan itself is beautiful (lovely waterfall and garden inside) and very quiet (it is literally next door to Yasaka Shrine but once inside the ryokan you can... More

We stayed here for one night. The ryokan is two storey and our room is located on the upper floor. Ryokan is located in Gion, 10-15min walk from subway station, it is more convenient to take buses to get around. Room interior is quite old and basic, the individual bathroom is new probably they recently renovated it. The female boss... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on whirlwind honeymoon through Asia. Was our first experience in a ryokan and enjoyed it immensely. Perfect location for seeing the sights of Kyoto (at the base of temple at the end of main tourist drag in Gion). Great service including tea served upon arrival and turn-down service at night (had no idea how to... More
