This is the second time we have stayed here. I absolutely cannot fault them. When they heard I was getting married in Kyoto they arranged a full length mirror, stools, and extra amenities without my even asking. When we returned after the wedding they had cleaned up the whirlwind that was our room and left an absolutely beautiful bouquet of... More

If you look at my past hotel reviews you will see its not very usual for me to write bad reviews. Because when travelling i don't have high expectations from the places i stay. But the 3 nights that i stayed here i couldn't sleep because the walls and windows were like a paper and i could hear the people... More

We were in Kyoto for 2 nights and had a great time here. We found it to be a good central location. There are bike rentals within walking distance which are great for getting around kyoto. It is also very close to 2 of the coolest temples in kyoto. There is really good food nearby and the staff is very... More

We definitely felt looked after at this budget Ryokan-cum-hotel (some Japanese style rooms with DIY futons). The doorways are low so if you are anything over 5"9 tall you need to walk around your room bent over so as not to perpetually bump your head - a lesson quickly learned! But everything is spotlessly clean and the tiny prefab bathroom... More

If you want to experience real Japanese style lodging this is a wonderful place, located on a walking distance from the Kyoto station. We had a small room without window and a mini bathroom but it was terribly cosy, perfect for couples! Cheap breakfast, simple but good, choice out of Japanese or Western style. Very friendly and helpful staff. Two... More

Like everyone else mentioned, it's not quite a hotel, and not quite a Ryokan. Not tatami mats, but with regular wood floors. A very super tiny bathroom. The beds are pretty low to the ground, but not on the floor. Sliding door to enter the inn, but a regular door to the room. It has basic amenities, soap, towels, very... More

This Japanese-style hotel was wonderful, and the hotel owner/staff really made our stay special. We booked a Japanese style room, and it was very spacious with clean, modern facilities. My friends had a western-style room, which was also great. The hotel hosts activities some evenings, either in the lobby or at other locations near the hotel. They are very inexpensive... More

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
