The hotel is quite far away from the station. We are last minute planners and we are used to people taking advantage of that. It's part of our way of traveling and there is no problem. In this case it was a bit too much. We had to pay more than the price displayed in booking and we were offered... More

I booked then read reviews....so at least I was prepared. If I had forethought to read reviews first I would have booked elsewhere. As reviews stated...despite my booking through booking.com owner initially refused my booking and showed me alternative. I was prepated for this and insisted on room I had booked. Which she gave me for 2 of the 3... More

If you are looking for a comfortable hotel with good, trustable service, Ryokan Ohto Inn will probably never be your first choice. It definitely isn't mine. My family and I came from the nearest train station, which was 2 miles away! That's about at 30 minute walk or close to $14 for one ride! When we got to the hotel,... More

We are a group of backpackers consisting first timers and a few not so experienced. Due to the last minute change in flight we expected to reach kyoto earlier and was out of option for rooms in kyoto. This Ryokan was the only one that still posting rooms available. Yes, ROOMs. We book a few rooms as the group we... More

I'm really disappointed by this hotel, it's not a ryokan. The owner is absolutely not friendly and not helpful. Our room had no window and look like a closet. Bathroom is really poor and not convenient. And it's noisy ! Really noisy. Wall are so thin that we can hear our neigbhor snoring as they sleep on the same room.... More

We are a group of 8 friends, really bad experience with this Ryokan Otho. We have booked this place for 3 rooms,and we arrived there around 6.30pm. First of all, we found this hotel was difficult to located, and the place was unlikely. But what we shocked is the same lady from previous comments told us only has one room... More

This Ryokan is really bad, please trust the earlier reviews. The guest house owner is quite unfriendly. There are no drinking water facilities, unlike other places in Japan generally. when my friends requested for it, the lady insisted that the water dispenser is not in working order. The rooms are cold and dingy. Although my experience was not as bad... More

Please do me one favour: Don’t make the same mistake! I booked this ryokan, because it was quite cheap and there was no other hotel offered in this price range for this period of time. Actually I read all the reviews of former guests, but I thought it couldn’t be that bad. But this really was a huge mistake. The... More

The entrance looked shabby, dirty and not welcoming at all. The frlnt desk lady covered in several coats, hats and jackets spoke no English at all. Insisted to pay first, we were... More

I am not a big reviewer, but I do not want any other foreign traveler to experience what my wife and I went through. It was our first trip to Japan and we loved everything about it. Our reservation experience and the Ryokan Ohto inn keeper was our only negative moment. In a country that is so respectful and kind,... More
