On my 2nd night in Japan I moved from a western-style hotel in Tokyo to the Kyoto Garden Ryokan Yachiyo. It is very hard to tell in words how it feels to stay at that place. To begin with, it is situated just a few blocks from major temples and gorgeous streets around the Philosopher's Walk. I got the cheapest... More

nice location but that's it; outrageous prices (over 220€) for old rooms, old carpets, old wallpapers; this has to be refreshed urgently to be an attractive place; furthermore, the dragon lady serving breakfast should retire quick before a guest gets knocked down one day..... the garden is muych smaller than it looks in the pictures

My wife and I booked one night at the Kyoto Garden Ryokan Yachiyo for the last night of our 3 night visit to Kyoto. We had never stayed in a traditional ryokan, and wanted to try out the experience. We really liked the hotel we had stayed in, but were blown away when we got to the Yachiyo. The ryokan... More

Go there! You will not regret ! It's a beautiful place in the old Japanese style. The food here is fantastic and the staff extremely friendly. It's an unforgettable experience! An additional advantage of this place is its proximity to many monuments and temples, and beautiful natural surroundings.

We had an amazing 1 night stay which made us feel like we got to feel a traditional Japanese Ryokan experience including Onsen, Kaiseki dinner in the room & Japanese breakfast. We stayed in the older more traditional building & slept on futons on the floor & slept very well (even if it did feel like a rather had sleeping... More

My friends and I stayed here overnight in-between our stays in two big hotels, one in Osaka and the other in Kyoto. We arrived in the evening, having come from a side trip to Nara, so we didn't have a chance to see on our first day just how charming the ryokan looked outside nor appreciate the lovely neighborhood.

I have to say that the experience was amazing... not only the ryokan is located in a great place and it is really beautiful but the service and the rooms are first class!

This was our first trip to Japan and we stayed in various hotels in Japan, and 2 nights in the ryokan. We loved the experience of a traditional ryokan and Kyoto Garden Ryokan was a wonderful experience. We stayed in a garden view room with a gorgeous garden and a small stream outside our room. We were greeted with slippers,... More
