This ryokan was too modern to be a traditional Ryokan and not really a hotel. Traveled with a friend. Would recommend to travail as a couple. Location was average: 10-15min walk to train station, too far from landmarks and too far from Gion (restaurant/nightlife). If you don't rent a bike, you will end up spend some good money on taxis...

having stayed a couple of nights in a hotel in Kyoto we wanted to stay in a ryokan for a few nights, not the most comfortable sleeping in the Japanese style but was lovely for the experience! Staff are incredibly helpful and have a great deal of knowledge about the area and attractions. Under 10 minute walk to Kyoto Station... More

A very typical hotel with very nice and comfortable japanese style rooms... and breakfast. Quite location in a small street between the railway station and the city center. Very easy to mover around to visit Kyoto's temples, parcs and the city center. The japanese hotel staff is charming, with a very nice welcome and always ready to help you. If... More

My husband and I stayed here in mid-August, 2014, during the Obon Festival. We had already spent 6 days in Tokyo, and so we were ready for the slower pace of Kyoto. This ryokan was perfect for us. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Kyoto train station, and is nestled in a quiet neighborhood of narrow streets. The... More

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...
