Conveniently located near Kyoto train station, restaurants and shops. Friendly and courteous staff, always willing to assist. Our room had it's own bathroom that was well serviced daily. Very good value for money and would stay there again.

What a spacious room and ofuro hotel sanoya has. It is also close to kyoto station and there is a kombini just outside. It has some amazing breakfast cafes nearby, where I had the best yasai toast . I wouldn't hesitate to tour kyoto again!

1) 3 minutes from Kyoto station, easy to access. 2) If you want to experience japanese culture, this hotel is a good choice. You can taste japanese traditional cuisine, sleep in a traditional japanese tatami room (it is excellently comfortable and I really enjoy it! ) and enjoy the common bath(see if you can accept or not). Overall, for me,... More

The hotel is an easy 5min walk to the Kyoto station, easy for anyone lugging big luggages around. Just ask the information counter and they'll draw out the route on a map for you. It is also a 10-15min walk to Keihan-Shichijo station which is more accessible to Gion. In Kyoto, train lines are run by independent companies so they... More

The Sanoya is a great value for the location one block from Kyoto Station. Makes is very easy to get to/come back from all the tourists sites. The staff was welcoming and eager to please. The rooms while very large (10 tatami mat room) and clean was quite dated in decor and had an scent reminiscent of a camper van... More

Traveled with 2 other friends and stayed for 5 nights - living area was big enough for 3 girls and 3 huge luggage. The hotel service was great! They were very helpful and accommodating, we wanted to rent Kimonos for a day and they helped us navigate Japanese websites, called and booked for us. Close to the station and easy... More

Hotel is conveniently located,very close to Kyoto station. Room is pretty spacious for two people and sleeping in futons on tatami mats was an interesting experience (albeit in a more modern hotel setting). Private bathroom & toilet attached to the room were clean and well-stocked. Good spread served for breakfast and the menu differed on the two days we stayed... More

I have stayed 2 nights in Hotel Sanoya 1 week ago, it was absolutely a great experience. As suggested by the male staff (sorry I forgot to ask your name), this is my first time to write something here. There are not too many comments about this Ryokan on internet, I was a bit worried about it at the beginning,... More
