Had a great stay here for 5 nights. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and keen to make suggestions on what you should be seeing. It feels like they just love having guests there. No complaints over the room as it was very clean and comfy. The Ryokan is also conveniently located near Kyoto station (around a 7 minute... More

Hotel staff is very friendly! They make sure that you feel welcomed and are always there to assist you. Great service, good food, nice room and strategically located near Kyoto station. We were able to reach the Ryokan within ten minutes from Kyoto station. Would definitely recommend this Ryokan to everyone!

We were an extended family (8 of us) traveling together over the Christmas holidays and our stay at this wonderful ryokan was one of the highlights of our trip. The rooms were lovely. We booked 3 rooms, 2 doubles and 1 family room for four of us (2 sons ages 19 and 22, and my husband and myself). They were... More

Friendly staff, great service, great food, great atmosphere, great location, great everything. I wasn't so confident about any places I booked before I traveled, but even my picky other half loved the place. I will definitely recommended this Ryokan to people who aren't so sure where to stay. It's the full experience you will think about the most when you... More

From the moment we entered this ryokan, we were treated like family. We almost wondered if we had previously met some of the staff as they were so warm and welcoming to us. Compared to other ryokans we researched, this one was more affordable. We paid about $280 for the room and a very nice kaiseki dinner that included Wagyu... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Ohanabo in February 2014. Due to some unfavorable snowy conditions, our time at Ohanabo was cut short to just one night. After a long 24 hour transit, the moment the walked through the door to Ohanabo we were looked after like royalty. The staff were all extremely attentive and they even drove us to... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. Many aspects of this highly regarded Ryokan are excellent including the service (it's super, super friendly), the meals, the location and the cleanliness. A few items weren't as good as they could be including the wi-fi coverage and the allowing of smoking in the lower lounge area. The service is really amazing, the people... More

We spent one night at the Ohanabo Ryokan and it was probably the accommodation highlight of our 3 weeks in Japan. Located not far from Kyoto Station, the location was great. The staff were wonderfully friendly and made us feel at home very quickly. Our room - shared between 4 people, was spacious and very clean with an ensuite bathroom.... More

I stayed here for one of my nights in Kyoto. I have to stay, after staying here I was actually considering spending the rest of my trip in Kyoto here. The staffs were all very friendly. It feels just like home. Unfortunately the wifi connection in my room was a little bad so I had to come hang out in... More

We did our research and decided to stay at Ohanabo for two nights, with the breakfast option. They offer dinner as well, but we wanted to be sure to explore the other restaurants in Kyoto. Located maybe five minutes walking from Kyoto Station, Ohanabo is on the Kyoto Tower side, the Central Exit I believe. It's pretty much a straight... More
