There was so much to like about this hotel. I found the hotel staff had good English and were quite helpful. The rooms were the best part with a distinct Japanese theme - tatami style flooring, very comfortable futon beds on the floor, three way bathroom which is great considering our family of 6 people, low Japanese dinner table with...

I visited during Winter with family members, 3 Elderly parents in their 70s, a Teenage Daughter, me and my partner. I would say this is the Most Memorable "Photo" Moment of our 2weeks Japan Trip, as we were all wearing the Kimono provided to guests in their rooms, having Hot Pot in our room (you can order as part of...

We had two nights in Kyoto, and the hotel was a short cab ride from the main Shinkansen Station in Kyoto. The location was good for the activities we had planned, as it is directly across the street from a streetcar station (running to both the Toei Kyoto Studio park, and Arashiyama area). Many cheap food options within a 5min... More

This hotel looks regular. But our room was definitely unique, making us judge this our best hotel experience ever. Why? Because it allowed us to experience how locals live (albeit with all the conveniences of a hotel). Our place wasn’t advertised as a ryokan but it was dressed like one, complete with tatami mats, “paper” windows, and a mini-onsen bathroom.... More

We stayed here during Gion Matsuri 2013. Location is very good, near to bus stops and Omiya trainstation with connections to Arashiyama and Kawaramachi station (to visit Gion). The onsen is nice after a hot day sightseeing. The reception staff are great. Very helpfull in translating and helping you make the most of your visit. Rooms are nice with a... More

I had great expectation on this hotel however, was feeling a bit of a let down upon entering the room. Room was not as big as I thought it should be. Wifi only available in lobby ( trick is use a router in the room). Breakfast was ok. However, throw in the Onsen and price to pay, good for our... More

We booked this hotel at the last minute, to stay for two nights over the Easter period, as our other preferences were fully booked. The hotel was clean and comfortable (except for the pillows), the location was good, and the staff were polite and helpful enough. We were not expecting breakfast with our booking, but were offered a choice of... More

Having experienced the splendor of the Miyajima Makoto the previous night, I have to admit there was a slight tinge of disappointment upon our arrival at the Village Kyoto where we were staying for 3 nights as part of our 15 night tour of Japan. First impressions of the reception were reasonable. The reception staff were polite and helpful. The... More

Disappointed- clean but not very centrally located. Staff friendly but minimal language skills other than Japanese. Having a traditional futon room was nice but you have to make up the beds yourself every night. Breakfast included in cost means they bring a plain, pre-prepared bento type box to your room (3 choices- you pick one per person: sushi/ rice dishes/bread-... More

We booked the Japanese-style tatami room and it was surprisingly spacious & clean. We have good sleeps as the futons were really comfortable. Breakfast was sent to our room every morning. Wifi is only available at the lobby. Too bad we have no chance to try out their onsen as we were bringing kid below 2. Overall we have a... More
