Sleeping on the floor is not my thing but this ryokan makes it better by providing private facilities for each room. Our room was fairly large but still didn’t have adequate room for suitcases. The futons were reasonably comfortable. There was a TV in the room but we couldn’t figure out how to make it work. There was also a... More

This traditional ryokan is situated two or three blocks from Kyoto station. Despite one or two negative reviews I've seen here I found the staff eager and helpful, the room everything I could want in a traditional ryokan, the prices very reasonable and of course the location near the station very convenient. I sometimes think some of the reviews I... More

My wife and I stayed last week - we had a lovely room and our sons an adjacent room. Rooms were lovely and clean and traditional, in that you sleep on the floor on a kind of futon bed. The owner was lovely - and speaks English. We liked the small touches - tea and coffee making, your own pyjamas,... More

We decided to try a ryokan to experience the traditional way of the Japanese, which this ryokan had it all. We were greeted & checked in by the owner who was so ever pleasant. The room was big with ensuite as requested. They even had a look out garden from our room, which was a soothing sight. The whole place... More

Great location for sightseeing Kyoto, nice Japanese experience, very nice staff and excellent breakfast for starting day. Rooms rather simple but cosy. Wifi available only in the reception. All in all good and worth going to.

This quaint little ryokan is located in a narrow alley within easy walking distance of Kyoto Station, but that doesn't detract from its charm. It's a small family-run operation, and the owners are quite friendly and accommodating. They stored our luggage for the day even after we checked out while we explored Kyoto. We had two rooms, the only two... More

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.
