We arrived a little early due to weather and the staff held out bags until the room was ready. The place feels very homey with welcoming and friendly staff. The rooms were an ok size and very clean. The washroom was nice and had a separate shower and very deep bath tub. The breakfast was for 800 yen and prepared... More

We stayed here twice. Once in 2011 and again during sakura season 2012. I liked the traditional ryokan but my hubby liked the wester rooms more. It's a very small b&b. I love their breakfast especially the fresh tomatoes and yummy spread. You can also buy the unlimited bus ride for tourists. What I like about the location is its... More

We spent a weekend at this ryokan in Kyoto during obon festival time. We are a family of four plus we had a relative with us for this weekend. She unexpectedly had to stay in the room with us (we thought we had a second room that she'd booked but we didn't -- our fault not theirs), and unlike many... More

We recently took a trip to Kyoto and decided we wanted to experience a more traditional accommodation while there. We selected the Sakura and had a very nice stay. We stayed ina tea room and had a first floor room. It is basically what you would expect, very minimalistic. There are tatami mats in the closet which have instructions and... More

We originally planned 2 nights but extended to 4 - such a pleasant, friendly place with easy access to the train station and downtown. Staff were always helpful and answered lots of questions. The staff even runs cultural events such as short calligraphy lessons in the evenings. Great fun!

We stayed at Sakura Ryokan for 4 nights. The room was quiet and convenient, combining the beautiful Japanese design with Western comfort (Western restroom, air conditioning). The staff was very helpful, English speaking, and kind enough to prepare us a vegan Japanese style breakfast (it's not on the menu, but ask the manager). We also enjoyed the location. It's not...

The inn is beautiful, the location superb, and the rooms lovely and comfortable. The most important thing though is the staff. I had to visit a doctor one evening, and being a solo traveller speaking almost no Japanese made this a pretty daunting task. After asking the front desk where the closest doctor or hospital was they took the time... More

We loved our four-night stay here. Yes, the inn is within easy walking distance of the train and bus stations and major bus routes; and yes, the price of the rooms is quite reasonable. But beyond that, it was always a pleasure to come back at the end of a long day and feel the atmosphere of peace and serenity... More

My wife and me lived there for 3 nights. The room and common areas were clean and traditional look, the staff is very polite and helpful. Room equipment is quite new, especially the bath room and toilet is excellent. However, the location is little far away from Kyoto station, around 15 minutes walking distance. Anyway, it is an excellent living... More

The staff was really helpful and informative. The also have quite a lot of information ready for tourists to learn about the city and their best restaurants. Ask for the Michelin star restaurant guide they have done. Place is nice and clean.
