We stayed 2 nights in the Ohanabo (not enough to explore the city of Kyoto, for sure) and enjoyed our stay at the Ohanabo. The (female) manager was certainly eager to help most times and the ryokan was very helpful in cleaning my shirts overnight. Breakfast was good, vegetarian option could be accommodated. There is some kind of communal bath,... More

From the moment we arrived until we left, everyone in Ohanabo treated us like part of their family - perhaps more :) Every day without fail - they always served refreshment and cold tea after we spent a full hot day out. They recommended the best way to get into our intended destinations of choice in Kyoto, and at one... More

It was an awesome experience for those who want to try living in a traditional Japanese guesthouse. It had a homey feel instead of a hotel feel, and the staff was great! I loved the welcome drink (Green tea) and Japanese cookies, tatami mats, futon cushions, the little nooks inside the room, the very comfortable yukata. I was only disappointed... More

This is the first time I pay a visit to Kyoto and I am delighted to have a chance to stay with this ryokan. Keiko, one of the person in charge has helped me a lot with the reservation and guided me around the Kyoto city. I travelled here with my mother and she fell in love with this place... More

I meant to write a detailed review about this wonderful guesthouse, but after reading the comments from the other guests just now I could see that it was not necessary. I would just be repeating the nice things other travellers have already said. I would testify, though, that all those titles extolling the place are no exaggeration indeed. Still, there... More

The people here are very friendly and welcoming, especially after coming from the cold efficiency of hotel staff in Tokyo. It's expensive but worth it if you value the experience. If you're just looking for the best value for quality/luxury, this is the wrong choice. It was fun to stay here for a night but I'm glad I didn't stay... More

I stumbled across this place whilst trying to find somewhere to stay during cherry blossom season! Luckily they had one room left and it definately was lucky! This place is pricey (as a lot of traditional places are) but it is worth it for the service you get. They allow people not staying at the ryokan to use the onsen,... More

We arrived earlier than check-in time but they kindly kept our luggage while we explored until the evening. The staff were more than friendly and helped us plan our sightseeing for the day on the first day. I cannot say enough good things about the staff here!! They are all smiles and always willing to help with anything you need.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while in Kyoto. The ryokan is easy to find on Karasuma Dori (a main road), however if you are coming from the station, make sure you take an exit on the Kyoto tower side of the station, or you will get lost! The staff were very lovely and helpful, carrying our bags up the... More
