I recently stayed at Hiiragiya Bekkan with 3 friends and we had an amazing stay. The service was fantastic, with regular tea and water brought to our room when we returned from our day out. The onsen facilities were nice, with a large soaker tub that fit 3 of us easily, and 3 shower stations with plenty of products and... More

Despite being first timers the staff at this ryokan instantly put us and our nerves at ease - we had a great time getting out of our comfort zones and experiencing some true Japanese hospitality. We paid a bit more for a larger room and we're surprised to find we had two big tatami rooms with a view of a... More

Beyond the decadent accommodations, 10 course dinner menu & a special bkfst all highlighting traditional Japanese Kyoto cuisine it's an education that doesn't stop teaching. The new year traditional floral arrangement near the praying area, the lack of furnishing on the tatami mats, movement of dining table to set out the luscious bedding, the reading room beside the garden, the...

I did quite a bit of research before booking my one night ryokan experience in Kyoto. This was to be my single splurge in Japan. I was infatuated with several of the top ryokans in the area, but could not bring myself to pay the money! I decided on the Hiiragiya Bekkan Annex, and was happy with my choice. As... More

One thing surprise me the most is that they made customer feeling like going home. I book the room by phone but it was their night time that only the Japanese speaking staff is available. When we arrived he instantly came to us to carry our luggages. When we left hotel for the day he walked us out and wave... More

Hiiragiya Bekkan is a beautiful small classy ryokan. The location is convenient; the room was excellent/better than average & had a pretty garden view. The meals were very good. Our host, Chia, made our stay a very enjoyable experience.

We stayed for one night during the height of cherry blossom season, at the beginning of April, when rates at all hotels and inns were very expensive. The inn was beautiful. Even though we had one of the smallest rooms, it actually felt quite spacious. Our room overlooked the garden and also had a small sitting area. The room was... More

We stayed at this ryokan for one night in March. I wish I could have stayed here longer but it was quite pricey. We got a room with a garden view, which was pretty but it is a very small garden so don't expect too much view-wise. The room was actually more spacious than i thought, especially after reading alot... More

The Hiiragiya Bekkan offered exactly what we wanted -- experiencing a Kyoto Ryokan -- but no more. A three-star review reflects my perception of the value of the experience, more than is it a reflection of the hotel itself. I am glad to have experienced an authentic Ryokan in Kyoto once -- but will not need to do so again.... More
