We stayed in a Japanese style room for two nights. Kyoto is a great city to experience. The hotel has a good location in Gion so close to walk to shrines and temples as well as shops and restaurants. No restaurant in the hotel, which we knew about, but it would have been much easier to get a nice breakfast... More

Nice ryokan style hotel located in a quiet area of the city close to the geisha area. The hotel is rather modern than traditional but you can have the typical rooms with futon. well equipped and also with the possibility to wear kimono! Very clean and with a huge shower (a real room where you can seat and relax). Not... More

I spent one night in this ryokan with my wife during April's holidays season. Not much to say about it apart from the fact that it is ideally located. The room was comfortable, bathroom a bit small. The only reason why I give it only an "average" rating is due to how rude the receptionist was to my wife when... More

A pleasure to come back to after a day of sightseeing especially the private bath in the Japanese Style room. Very helpful & courteous staff. Just a short walk from Bus Stop through Yasaka Shine. Will always be our first choice to stay in Kyoto.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. If we come back to Kyoto, we will stay here again. We booked a traditional room with two mattress on tatami mats. We found the mattresses extremely comfortable. Even the traditional room has the technology that hotel guests came to expect: wireless internet, TV, and air conditioning (Japan is HUMID). The bathroom was... More

The location of the hotel is excellent in the Gion area, within walking distance to famous shrines and temples. We were in a Japanese style room for 4 persons. Basic amenities, but very clean. The wifi in the room was reasonably good. What blew me away was the exceptional customer service and the patience and level of details they provide... More

Even tough we liked to sleep in he floor in a japanese room, it has no charm, no view, lousy ar conditioning in a cramped room. Did not liked it or recommend. And it is expensive. To say good things, I had my own router in room, and even an apple tv. Shower was great.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The staff are so friendly and helpful. We were very comfortable with decent sized rooms and there are so many things to see within walking distance. Wish we could stay a bit longer.

We loved this little treasure with great, courteous staff. Our room had a view of local rooftops, but location made up for it. We were close to Yasaka Pagoda and surrounding shops and dining. We walked to Yasaka Shrine and Kiyomizu Temple. We also walked to the main Gion shops, museums, and dining including the Geisha area. The hotel offers... More
