This hotel was amazing, one of the best places I have ever stayed. The staff were friendly, close to Kyoto central station. Very clean and tidy and I would recommend staying in a traditional japanese style room, its a great experience.

We stayed at the Sakura room which required to be booked directly on their website for 2 consecutive nights. The room is much smaller than expected and the little courtyard garden wasn't that impressive. The room itself is new and clean, but the space is so well used that there's no surface for you to put anything extra. Thank god... More

A very cozy and affordable place. We had a fantastic and genuine experience of the traditional Japanese accommodation. Everything was in good condition and the place was lovely. The staff were very professional and friendly. Make sure to try the Japanese breakfast!

We chose to stay in the traditional rooms. Was fun doing the bed and having a chance to wear a Kimono! The room was clean and it was nice to have the green tea too. The Ryokan is in a great location, easy walking distance to everything.

I've mixed feelings about this this property. A lot of the positives were countered by a negative, and vice versa. For example, lovely check in process. The lady was very efficient, gave lots of good advice. The room was not ready, but they took my bag and when I came back later they had put my bag in my room,... More

Had a good stay here, close to all the bits of Kyoto that you want to be near and close enough to an underground station. It is only a month old so is very fresh. We stayed in a maisonette room which had plenty of room and access to an upper level with view of a small but pretty landscaped... More

We spent two nights at the Kyomachiya Ryokan Sakura in March 2015 and were blown away by the warm welcome and the hospitality shown to us by each staff member. Not only were the rooms clean and exactly as we expected them to be, but the staff also took the trouble of giving us lots and lots of tips about... More

This Ryokan is a fake. It is clean and well located but if you are looking for a Ryokan kind of experience, you'd better go somewhere else. The japanese style rooms have futons that are more like cheap mattresses. The bathroom is what you would expect in a cheap motel (a one block of plastic). Rooms are noisy, your hear... More

The hotel is about 15 minutes walk from the Kyoto station. The room was large and very clean. The futon on the floor was very thick and soft. They offer great Japanses cultural experience sessions at night. The room was nice and warm. Loved staying at this lovely ryokan.

We stayed for four nights in this ryokan. It was in a residential area and very quite in all the days and nights, although the noise from the guests in the next room may disturb, as it was a Kyomachiya - a type of traditional home of Kyoto built all by wood. The room was in traditional Japanese style with... More
