Other than the good location of the hotel and relatively lower room rates, the service level is not what I had expected from the Japanese. Upon arrival at 3pm which was the check in time, the tiny lobby was dark with lights turned off and no one to be seen. We had to call out loudly 'konnichiwa!' before the lady... More

Ryokan Heianbro is a great way for you to experience the traditional accommodation of Japan. Very close to the station, although we did get lost due to another tourist directions headed us in the opposite way. A kind local stopped and helped and then we were on the way. We stayed here as we wanted to experience the traditional living,... More

We stayed here as part of a guided tour. Unusually for a small ryokan we had ensuite facilities. The ryokan is extremely well located just a short walk from Kyoto station, but in a quiet street. We particularly enjoyed the Japanese breakfasts that were some of the best we had during our stay.

Kyoto is a very large city, so finding a ryokan like this was a real coup. The location is fantastic, primarily because it's a five-minute walk from Kyoto Station. That's key not only if you're trying to get to the train for the airport or just to get around for sightseeing, There are also lots of things to do and... More

This Ryokan is perfectly located about 5 minutes walk from Kyoto Station, yet it is quiet. The Japanese breakfast was delicious and the rooms spacious. Very friendly staff. Everywhere is within walking distance, from Gion to the Nishiki markets. And plenty of restaurants to Kyoto Station. For those wanting to do laundry there's a coin laundry just 5 minutes walk...

Our experience in Heianbo was really great! It feels very much lived in, and the staff makes you feel well taken care of! I would stay there again if I had the chance to go back! Location was perfect as well; it's easy to access from Kyoto Station, but despite its prime location, it was really quiet. The Japanese breakfast... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Heianbo. Easy 5 min. walk from Kyoto Station, We stayed in 2 Japanese style rooms, and both were tastefully decorated and large for Japan. Bedding was clean and comfortable. Owners spoke some English, but tried to help as much as they could. Very accommodating. Wi-fi does not work in back, but good in the front.... More

I stayed in four ryokans during my trip to Japan and this was by far the best. The Japanese-style room was large and the en-suite was cute and cosy. The ryokan was decorated with lovely statues and traditional Japanese items. I was allowed to leave my suitcase in the lobby the date of checkout whilst I went exploring the city,... More
