My family had a wonderful time at this ryokan. It is within walking distance to the shrines. The staff spoke very little English but were extremely nice and accommodating. The dinners were amazing; the meal we had on the first night had 8 or 9 courses (we lost count). One of our family members is a vegetarian, and the vegetarian... More

When we arrived it was too early to check in. They allowed us to leave our bags while we wondered Kyoto. When we arrived back it was time to check in. The owners were really nice and because we did study a little Japanese before we came we were able to communicate. We only stayed here one night. We didn't... More

Stayed here as a family of 5. Only a 5 minute walk from the subway and located in the heart of a great district with great shops and eateries. It is in a side road just past the Kyoto YMCA, we had some trouble finding the ryokan initially as it has discreet signage. The accommodation was very clean, the bedding... More

I had a long stay (7 nights) last month with my friend. Our stay here couldn't be better. The owner Mr. & Mrs. Takahashi and their staff were super friendly and helpful. We arrived late and Mr. Takahashi waited for us and greeted us with warm welcome. The place was very clean and nicely decorated. Our room was not that... More

If the TA ranking is to be believed, there are over 200 better lodging choices in Kyoto. Given the warm hospitality, clean rooms and wonderful food we found in Ryokan Sanga, this is hard to believe. Ok, not everything is perfect -- the family-run ryokan lies about midway between two subway stations, the smaller rooms do not have private showers,... More

What better way to experience old Japan than to stay in a Ryokan or Old Japanese Inn. We stayed at Ryokan Sanga and we were transported back to the Edo Japanese Period. Located at Central Kyoto and is just a walking distance from the Karasuma Oike Station. We arrived late at night and the hotel staff welcomed us warmly. When... More

Sanga ryokan is located in the heart of Kyoto, near shopping arcade not too far on foot to Pontocho and Gion areas. Very friendly staffs, great japanese bath and wonderful Kaiseki dinner.
