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

This warm, homely Ryokan was everything and more I expected from a traditional Japanese Inn. The staff waited on our every need, very attentive, helpful and friendly. I stayed here in June 2013 with my son and daughter-in-law and I thoroughly enjoyed everything I experienced in Kyoto. I will most definitely stay here again if I ever return to Kyoto.

Our family of 4 (2 girls ages 4 & 6) just returned from a 3 night stay at this Ryokan. We spent 10 nights total throughout Japan and our girls told us this was their favorite place to stay. The ladies that work there are unbelievably friendly and accommodating, especially for having kids (this isn't always the case in Japan).... 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!
