This is a traditional Japanese styled, but modern hotel. Surpisingly spacious tatami rooms, comfortable futons, spacious bathrooms and toilette rooms. Very well equipped rooms: huge refrigerator, microwave oven,AC, Japanese styled pyjamas, tea, coffee and soup in the rooms. The breakfast is served in the guestrooms at the required morning time, there is no restaurant in the hotel. You can choose... More

I booked one of the largest rooms here for 4 people and was initially disappointed with the size of the room. We understood that you made you own bedding but there were only 3 sofas in the room, the 4th person we had to make up a makeshift matress with some quilts and blankets which the maid kept removing every...

Central location with buses and subway trains very close. Hotel is ok but not great. The onsen department however is great. It is really very relaxing to take a nice varm bath after a day full of sightseing.

Stayed 6 nights in July visiting Kyoto. The hotel is a minute away from either the subway or the bus stops. A daily pass costing 500 yens will let you hop on and off the buses visiting practically all Kyoto attractions. The hotel staff is attentive with sufficient English skills. The room is a hybrid tatami room, so plenty of... More

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
