From the moment we checked in we appreciated the simple elegance and relaxed feel of this place. On arrival we were asked to take a seat and brought tea to enjoy as forms were filled out and payment was made. We stayed in a garden room, a good size tatami mat room with an entry hall, a small 'dressing' room... More

I was a little bit scared about sleeping in a ryokan with those futon (really thin mattress) and also rooms divided with just some rice paper, but people in japan is so educated and don't make noise, talking about futon I used 2 togheter so slept well!! The staff is very friendly and also give lots of good ideas about... More

Obviously this isn't an ancient Ryokan, but the staff really make a good japanese experience. We stayed at a traditional japanese room, and it was really comfortable. The "garden view"'s garden was a little small, but then again I think everything in Japan can come as very small to foreigners. Staff was very helpful lending a converter for the plugs.... More

We lived our second half of our vacation in this Ryokan. It was our first trip in Japan, so to try out a ryokan was very new for us. And it was differently worth it! It's a 10-15 mins walk from the Kyoto station, and if you don't know the place I recommend you to look for the place in... More

Like many reviewers stated, its not a 100% ryokan but that didn't bother us one bit. We stayed around the new year holiday for two nights before heading to Tokyo via bullet train. We reserved a non-smoking western style room(good size for 2 people) and the kids stayed next to us in a traditional Japanese room. The rooms are cleaned... More

This Ryokan made for a fantastic first impression in Japan. All staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming, it was very clean and conveniently located. We stayed 5 nights in a Western style room (Japanese style also available). The room itself was spacious by Japanese standards with a súper confortable bed. Bathroom was very tight but clean and set up with... More

Its our first time to visit Japan and like to experience to stay in a ryokan. We planned our trip late so most of the Ryokans are booked. With the help of trip advisor I was able to find this place and booked immediately. We arrived in kyoto by train in the afternoon. Good thing I made a print out... More

This is an excellent Ryokan choice in central Kyoto north of the Train Station. We received exceptional service, traveller advice and enjoyed particular friendliness from the staff at this Ryokan. Our visit coincided with Christmas and the Ryokan management made for a very thoughtful and special Christmas eve for all guests with entertainment, food and drink. The room and sleeping... More

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights when we went to Kyoto end last year. It was the priciest hotel (~USD200) that we stayed in on our entire trip AND the smallest room we stayed in (we got the standard room). I traveled with my husband and 2 children and were given a small room with 3 futons. That's... More

Very nice and very helpfull staff, clean and good for that price ryokan. Wifi is available only at the reception. The only problem is that it is about 15-20 min walk from the train station and the busses bringing you close to the ryokan stops at 10pm. P.S. About 5 min walk from the ryokan we've tried the best udon... More
