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.

While Sakura wasnt our first choice, we are glad we chose it. We got the room with tatami mats and we slept like babes. The bathroom was small but it was something we got used to. The staff was friendlt esp Toko. She gave us tips on japanese cooking. Sakura had activities organized for guests like sake drinking, ikebana. Too... More

this hotel located in a quiet valley, that means no car noise would bother your rest, in the other hands, it may take u some time to walk to the nearest bus station and subway station. if u visit Kyoto for cultural experience, this hotel could be an ideal choice.

It is a simple ryokan with good hospitality. The decoration was nice with small garden on the 1st floor. Unfortunately we got a room at the 3rd floor which view was blocked. The staffs speak English fluently. The japanese style breakfast was just average (with the same menu everyday) and you have to pay additional charge about 8$ for it.... More

We stayed 2 nights at Sakura after 2 nights at the Ibis Kyoto station, and were really looking forward to our stay in a Japanese style room. We were quite disappointed. We were expecting something much smaller and intimate; instead, there are a lot of rooms, which makes the whole location more like an hotel. Then the room: it's quite... More

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

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
