Nice location from the Kyoto train and bus station to hotel within 10 mins only. The staff is very nice and help to prepare the elevator, yes, there is an elevator in the hotel then you can bring your big luggage to your room easily. There is convenient store, cheap drug store and big camera nearby then you can shop... More

Location is good for travellers, on walking distance from the railway station. I trully appreciated both welcome and farewell moments, the guy running the property is doing its utmost to accomodate his guests. The ryokan scores low on its sleeping quality, futons are old and tired... what a pitty! As already mentionned previously by fellow travellers, there is a weird... More

- Very good location in walking distance from the train station - Nice staff that explains you everything on arrival - Good wifi signal - Very clean - Curfew at 23h, which was a bit annoying when you were enjoying the city at nigh

The better ryokan we stayed was full during our last night of visit so we moved here. When we came in, we were greeted by the strong smell of oilment. Also had to leave shoes before entering the ryokan (?!??). This place is basic, no frills and definitely not as impressive as its high rating. Futon was thin and it... More

Hotel is only 5 minutes walk from Kyoto Station. I stayed there for 2 nights in Japanese style room. Room was comfortable good enough for 2-3 people.Staff are very polite and willing to help. No breakfast but there are a lot of coffee shops and convenient stores around.

Or more of budget style. Good enough imitation with futon and yukata, just no in-house maid and no breakfast. Room was comfortable enough, but thin walls that you can hear the neighbors. I appreciated having a coin laundrette onsite, but limited number. Someone actually took out my clothes out from the dryer prematurely and used the remaining time to dry... More

We stayed in a Japanese room, 3-8 for one night. I must say I am glad it was only for one night. Friends and the travel agency told us we had to experience a Ryokan at least one time. So we did, the location of the Ryokan is perfect: as we came from Tokyo by JR-train we could walk with... More

When booking on line note that there are western style rooms and traditional Japanese rooms in this "hotel". There are actually 2 buildings, about 1 small block apart. We didn't see the western style rooms. We stayed in what was referred to as the "Annex" in the Japanese style (Ryokan) rooms. Don't be put off by use of the term... More
