Excellent service, cleanliness, food, atmosphere. Very traditional but also comfortable. Staff were helpful and spoke English. Beautiful garden view from the restaurant. Great location near a station, and bike hire was offered - the best way to get around Kyoto. A little more expensive than some ryokans, but it was worth it.

My two sons and I went to this ryokan for a "Japanese" experience and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Our first experience of the bath - started out thinking how easy this was but feeling challenged within 15 minutes. Then dressing in the robes supplied in our traditional tatami mat room. We were delighted to find this hotel provides a vegetarian... More

Excellent service, the girl on the desk brought us iced tea because she thought we looked a bit hot (we were), she even ran after us when we were leaving to ask if we wanted her to take a photo of us. The man and woman who seemed to rub the place were also very friendly, and the room was... More

We had nice stay at Ryokan Yachiyo. We were having 2 holiday weeks in Japan and stayed 4 nights in Kyoto. As this place is very well located it was easy to visit many historic sights close by. It was also easy to walk down to city where you have all the restaurants, shops you might need. Staff was friendly... More

Wonderful experience of Japanese cultural traditions. Excellent location for walking around the neighborhood and very friendly welcome by the staff. Beautiful view of the garden and tidy 8 tatami room - all that is needed to spend one night experiencing local exotics. And Japanese breakfast, of course:-) thanks for the warm welcome at the hotel!

Kyoto Garden Ryokan Yachiyo was the perfect setting for a relaxing stay in Kyoto with close proximity to several temples and the subway to explore the city. The room opening to a garden with a koi pond was beautiful, the staff were very helpful, the onsen was clean and refreshing. I would go back just to stay there and do... More

Just spent 6 days here, the staff, the food and the whole expirience was first rate. Rarely have I expirienced such good service. If you are looking for a first rate Japanese expirience this is the best.

The only things to say are that this ryokan is very clean, friendly and provides a wonderful traditional experience. Location is excellent for philosophers walk. Highly recommended. One word of warning to those who order the traditional 15 course menu. While the items change with availability of ingredients it was the only place throughout our trip in Japan where I... More

We couldn't imagine a better stay to give our US-born family of 6 such a genuine cultural experience. It's hard to describe other than to say it was exactly how one should experience the best of traditional Japan. The luggage dropoff and friendly welcome to the hotel by staff was a great start. We had a wonderful open room that... More

Wonderful location - we were able to walk everywhere. Our traditional family room on the second floor was quite large and had a pleasant view of the gardens. A great way to experience an authentic ryokan!
