Ryokan Sanki is run by a wonderful woman who makes you feel right at home. It's not a large hotel by any means, but it is a comfortable and safe place to sleep with a train station only 5 minutes away. There is also a laundromat close by which she will gladly give you a map and tell you how... More

This is my second time in ryokan Sanki, and I'll keep coming back whenever in Kyoto. Grandmas who own this place are lovely and caring and will make sure you get the best from your stay. The location is great, just a few steps from Tambaguchi station (one stop away to Kyoto central station), and surrounded by an old geisha... More

Good value for money and run with a smile by the older lady that owns it. Even when fully occupied (we counted seven rooms contrary to earlier information...) there were no issues in sharing the bathroom (which has floor heating, very nice in this time of year) and there was never a lack of hot water. The lady herself is... More

Ryokan Sanki was our first accomodation in Japan, and the best so far. We are a family of five italians, with three 25 to 30 years old daughters. We booked before by email, writing in english and copying the Google translator for the same in japanese too, as a courtesy to the lady of the Ryokan. The old lady who... More

Great traditional place in a quiet residential neighbourhood with character. 2 min walk to two Sento baths (1 cheap local small, and 1 larger modern - both are great). 10 min walk to JR Station Tamagushi, Bus Stop, convenience store & large supermarket. Free bottled water & green tea (as long as supplies last). Very nice Japanese speaking landlady. Small... More

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
