Stayed at the Ohanabo Hokkaikan for two nights, and when we arrived, we were greeted by the sweetest people. They took our luggage to our room whilst we were sightseeing as we arrived early, and upon returning they brought us tea and sweets to welcome us back. They have a public Bath which was very relaxing and we tried dinner... More

This little place located not too far from the central station has the most amazing service I had ever seen in my life, including hotels that cost ten times more. Rooms are lovely and Thetis bicycle shop next door. Highly recommended.

We visited Kyoto for 4 days in December/January. I can't say enough about how amazing the staff was. Yu, Mika and the rest of the ladies were attentive, but not overbearing. They were helpful explaining how to eat the magnificent food. The rooms were spotless. I highly recommend staying here, and you must eat at least one dinner and breakfast.... More

We loved the Ohanabo! From now on, when we go to Kyoto, we'll be checking to see if there's room here first. Here's why, in no particular order: Location - they're a 7 or 8 minute walk from Kyoto station. An easy walk even if you're dragging luggage. Service - I've stayed at at of friendly places in Japan, but... More

Nothing to say that has not been covered. We had the meal served in the room in our kimonos being looked after by the lovely ladies. A unique and thoroughly enjoyable experience. We were there for 2 nights and balanced it with 2 at Hotel Mume, very different places with the common theme of excellent service. Lack of wifi annoyed... More

I should say, after reading all the reviews here on TripAdvisor, I traveled to Kyoto with really high expectations of Ohanabo and I have to say that, not only were they met but, also surpassed! First of all, the location is perfect considering the ryokan is a mere 5 minute walk from Kyoto station. Me and my gf stayed in... More

Location and service are the hallmarks of this fantastic traditional Japanese Inn (Ryokan). For the uninitiated to Japanese Ryokans, the rooms are multi-purpose with old style tatami mat floors. During the day a low table and sitting cushions with chair backs are set up. Hot tea and traditional snacks are often served in your room, either upon your immediate arrival... More

Stayed for one night and thoroughly enjoyed it. Convenient to the train station. They were very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The owner provided helpful suggestions on what to see and how to get there. They kept my bag the next morning so I could see some sites nearby. Would recommend if you want to stay in a Japanese Inn/Ryokan and... More

It is the small inn of 12 rooms. It was the splendid hotel which could take in consideration, hospitality. It is the place that is fit if I ask an old thing and know the new matter. Gentleness of the master, hospitality of a proprietress, consideration of staff are felt in at every turn. I stay by all means if... More
