I stayed in a few ryokans but not one has been as nice as this one and the reason is the staff who simply couldn't be lovelier. Do not be tempted to take a taxi as it is 5 min. Walk . Out of the station and across the.street past Starbucks on one side. Keep going up past a large... More

I spent quite a long time - 8 nights - at Ohanabo while visiting my son, who was on summer study abroad program in Kyoto. I then went on to travel elsewhere in Japan for about another 10 days, and came to treasure Ohanabo even more after my stay there, in comparison to all the other places (some of which... More

They have every factor you can imagine about the tranditional Japanese room. The moment I entered the room, the lovely lady brings me beautiful fresh flowers. Location is good, so close to Kyoto station, meaning all the transportation. Staff is friendly and cheerful.

We spent four nights in late June at Ohanabo and were amazed at the hospitality this Ryokan offers. It also offers very clean traditional Japanese rooms - why would you not choose this if you are visiting Kyoto. The rooms were large and although I do not love sitting on the floor I would not have changed a thing. I... More

Ohanobo is a beautiful Ryokan. I can not find one fault with this charming property or its staff. We had an amazing stay and hope to return again. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. There are numerous thoughtful touches during your stay. Make sure you eat dinner in one night. Shabu Shabu in our room was so special and romantic. You... More

This is a mid range, good value ryokan that can be easily accessed from Kyoto station via an underpass. It takes about 8 minutes to walk there and it's very close to yodabashi camera and just opposite Higashi Honganji temple. I must say the staff are lovely, extremely friendly and warm people, and they treat each and every guest well.... More
