Seikoro is a very historical and charming inn in Kyoto. Good location with an excellent service, although its a bit pricey, we still highly recommend you come to experience the most traditional Japanese living style, even just for one night.

we had an amazing time at this ryokan. beautiful building to explore if you ever want to leave your immaculate traditional room. The service is exquisite, as you begin to expect in Japan. the on-site indoor Onsen was lovely too. i had it all to myself. The food is definitely worth the extra cash. And they speak english too.

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Seikoro Inn. The room was traditional Japanese style but with modern fixtures, the garden in the back was delightful, the bath area was very relaxing if you don't mind taken bath in public with strangers, and the food was definitely worth the extra cost (you have got to try at...

Really wonderful in every way. This was my first stay in a ryokan. I really hope I stay again. From the moment you arrive, the service is immaculate. The staff are beautifully dressed, the inn is lovely, and the room was just captivating. Most of the staff do not speak vey much English but I did not find this in... More

The Seikoro Inn was the first Ryokan we stayed in during our 2 week Japan visit, having taken the bullet train from Tokyo. Having now stayed in a number, I can give a review of this one in the context of the others. GOOD - The typical Japanese hospitality - warm greetings on arrival, green tea with some sort of... More

My fiancee and I stayed here for two nights and had an amazing time. The place is spotless, inviting and the staff are incredibly nice and attentive. When you arrive, you're greeted at the door with slippers and your bags are taken to your room. You're also introduced to your personal room attendant who serves meals, makes your bed at... More

I have been wanting to stay at ryokan ever since forever and I am so glad that my first experience was with Seikoro. As we had arrived in Kyoto in the middle of winter (if it wasn’t raining, it was snowing), Seikoro was that oasis in the central of the city that we looked forward to returning to after a... More

we returned to Seikoro this month, this time with the whole family and it really is a special oasis. The atmosphere so perfectly traditional; very central to visit the key sights of Kyoto and the people make you feel so so special. My 12 year old son's first onsen will live in our memory forever.

It's a lovely ryokan; friendly staff, superb food, beautiful old inn with large and and historic seeming tatami rooms. It's located right next to a Keihan line railway station so great for north-south travel, though you'll have to change for the subway. Its convenient for southern Higashiama temples. Some have commented on the traffic noise. Some rooms might get a... More

Staying at Seikoro Inn was a fantastic experience. The ryokan is beautiful, as are the staff. I highly recommend anyone looking for an authetic Japanese lodging experience to visit Seikoro Inn, even if only for a night.
