While not traveling on a tight budget, my partner and I were conscious of our hotel choices in relation to pricing, as we did not want to spend a fortune in accommodation when most of a trip to Japan is spend outdoors. Therefore we decided to stay at a budget hotel while in Kyoto, and indulge ourselves at a top... More

One of the few reasonably priced ryokans in a quiet neighborhood with modern en suite toilet and shower facilities. Tucked away from the touristy areas, this is a good choice if you are looking for some peace and quiet. They have English-speaking staff available at all times and provides all that you can expect to experience in a traditional ryokan... More

We had to book last minute and this was one of the only ryokans that had availability. The pictures online made the place look a lot newer so we were a little disappointed when everything was old and outdated. T was nice to have the ryokan experience but the lady who showed us around didn't speak English and didn't explain... More

The location is not too far from the Kyoto station but it will take a taxi to get you there for Yen 2,000. The "mamasan" at the ryokan speaks excellent English and she takes care of the in-house meals. The rooms are quiet. The tatami mat (futon) is a marvellous treat. The onsen (one for each gender) is clean and... More

My family and I were in Kyoto for just under a week. We had booked another place for most of our nights but followed the advice on Kyoto travel sites we had visited to stay at a traditional ryokan for the experience. We thus stayed for one night in Ryokan Yachiyo and we certainly did not regret that decision. On... More

This was a great experience for us, having never been to Japan nor stayed in a ryokan before. The futons were more comfortable than just about any other bed we stayed in, and we could clear the space and use a table or lay out our bags on the floor. Very spacious for a Japanese hotel room, with a big... More

We stayed in this inn last July for 3 nights, when we arrived there was a problem with our booking (totally my fault). However, the owner was lovely and helped us out. Luckily there was a vacancy and we could still stay there! This was our first ryokan experience. Love it! The food in the restaurant, both breakfast and dinner... More

We stayed for one night in this ryokan as a treat, as it's slightly towards the pricier end of the scale - but if you want to experience some traditional Japanese hospitality, this is a good place. It's clearly a slightly older ryokan which may not have been updated in a while, but this was part of it's charm. We... More

We chose this off the internet through trip adviser as family accommodation in Kyoto for 2 nights. It was terrible as the room was in awful condition, had been used by smokers (even though we specified non-smoking) and was not cleaned to a good standard. The access was difficult for large suitcases and not of a standard we expected for... More

Simply a dream we have lived in this exceptional Ryokan ! We stayed for two nights and enjoyed the room (garden side - first floor). The staff was very helpful and gave us many useful information. The restaurant was also excellent, we almost tried the entire menu!
