What a treasure this place is, it's a quick 10 minute walk from Kyoto central train station, easy for it to get on numerous city buses and the staff are just so accomodating. The rooms are super clean and enormous. The beds and quilts ensure a good nights sleep after many kilometres of walking around Kyoto. The breakfast is good... More

Excellent, well maintained and clean place. Breakfast is delicious! They even provide heater on the floor at the corner of the table to keep your legs and feet warm. Nice touch. Stayed in the unit with tatami and a small garden. Room is not big but adequate since you only spread your bed on the tatami when sleeping. Staffs are... More

Decided to embrace the historical and cultural kyoto by opting to stay in a Ryokan. What an experience! We were brought up to our room in the 3rd level and upon opening the doors we were so surprised at the space and layout of the room. It was small (6 tatami mats) and the 'living area' was made into a... More

I had always dreamed of staying in a traditional ryokan but alas, it was a busy weekend(Fall in Kyoto) and there was nothing but a few run down places available. Thankfully a room at Sakura opened up and based on the reviews I was glad to have grabbed it. Although the name of the hotel has a Ryokan in it,... More

On my personal opinion where are no bad hotels in Japan. Well, we did not live in bad ones. We spent 5 nights in Kyoto: 2 nights in a simple, slightly boring and ordinary one - will not call it's name and will not post negative review) but after that we moved to Kyomachiya Ryokan Sakura. And it was a... More

Great stay at charming ryokan. The staff is really friendly and helpful. We had a western room and the friends we were traveling with had a traditional Japanese room. Both were very nice, had tea and a fridge and a bathroom en suite. The location is central and was easy to find and get around. We lost a camera and... More

We stayed here for three nights. The room is really small and you have to make the bed yourself everyday. But this ryokan is very clean and the decor is chic. If you travel on a budget and want to experience ryokan, it would be a good choice. Otherwise I would recommend other chain hotels.

It was a rather last minute decision for me and my friends to decide we want to stay in a Ryokan in Kyoto and I was really glad we managed to get 2 rooms at Ryokan Sakura. We stayed for 2 nights in the Standard Japanese Room and Tea Ceremony Room. Both rooms were really clean and nice, and the... More

Kyoto was rather packed with tourists in December and most hotels and ryokans were fully booked for the dates we wanted. I had wanted to stay in a ryokan but not willing to share a bathroom with 10 other people on the same floor so I was glad to find Kyomachiya Ryokan Sakura. This ryokan was rather new and has...

If you want something safe, simple and no fuss then in my opinion this is a good choice of accommodation. If I was ever lucky enough to return to Kyoto I would come back. It is a fairly short and easy walk from, let's face it, the extremely impressive train station which is a holiday destination in itself. This ryokan... More
