We stayed there for a night because all the other hotels were fully booked. The owner is very nice and oversee most of the stuffs herself. However, cleanliness of the room/toilet... More

Daiya Ryokan is very well located near Kyoto main station. Owner is very kind but it is the only guesthouse, during our japan trip, which was not clean. Being king does not compensate for not being clean. We definitely do not recommend it.

Easy to find from the STN, friendly owner with 2 tiny dogs. It states they have a restaurant, I stayed there 9 nights but never saw it open. Evertthing is a bit worn out and slightly shabbly, but that's O.K. with me for this price. A single dried up used contact lens stayed on the side of the communal wash... More
