I spent here 4 nights with my family, during our kyoto visit. I was a bit worried, since I red these reviews before we arrived to Kyoto, but we had absolutely no problems. The lady was really nice, and liked our daughter much. Only minus was my own fault when I was so tired that I paid too much (4000... More

This is the worst accomodation experience we have had, not only in Japan but worlwide (travelling on a world tour). A friend of mine had booked 2 rooms for 2 couples for 3 nights and had pre paid via a booking website. When we arrived, the owner lady told us that we could not get 2 separate rooms as booked...

Ryokan Ohto provides comfortable lodging in the Japanese style. Great location, two station away from Kyoto Station. Convenience Store is just about 5 mins walk from the Ryokan. The bathroom is very clean and with a Japanese's style bath tub. Water supply is good.

I booked this room online for my trip in May 1-2 in Kyoto and specified privatebathroom as I am travelling with my son (5 years old). The old lady gave me a room without bathroom and said the rate in the website is only for 1st April. Totally not stated in the website! I let it go and went out... More

I loved this place! It was near the station and on the route of the buses that takes you to the main temples, besides the lady that runs it is very kind and nice. The place is very clean and comfortable

The shared toilet is clean but freezing( i been here in December) the communal shower room is also clean, have only one on the ground floor though! Good location, very close to Kyoto train station and in walking distance of the Kiyomizudera... More

I had been visited this place before on 2010 for 1 night with my international exchange student friends and everything went so good. A guy at the reception was well-communicated in English and really helpful. Economy and friendly accommodation lead to my latest April 2013 Kyoto trip with my family. Everything was like hell this time. I booked this ryokan... More

A great no-frills ryokan near Sanjuusangendoo in Kyoto. Clean rooms. I always stay in the 3 and one half mat room as it is very cozy, but it does not have its own bathroom if that is something that is important. Other larger rooms do. The shower room is clean and functional and in any case there are two lovely... More

As Western visitors we felt that this was more of a backpackers delight than a traditional Ryokan! The place was honestly the coldest lodging I have ever been to. The ryokan lady loomed out of the dim surroundings every time we came near the reception area with a huge coat, hat and face mask. It was freezing, every time we... More

Despite having booked months before hand, we arrived nto be told that there was only 1 very small room available. The room was a disgrace. It was dusty and the linen and towels were stained. For an added bonus, there was hairs on the bedding and on our pillows. Something was biting my legs and I wasn't unable to ascertain... More
