This was a pretty respectable place to stay in Kyoto for the price! Location: Near Shichijo Station which is convenient for getting around! It's on a side street off the main street so might take some time finding. Service: Check in was acceptable. Usually no one at the counter, and sometime we see them sleeping at the back. Decor: Was... More

Bottom line: two relatively sleepless nights… although defendants of this establishment might claim some residuals of jetlag influenced the minimal REM. The room itself was clean & basic – tatami floor & a small table, with a shared bathroom & toilet. The issue was that the walls had no acoustic insulation: any sound, inside the hotel as well as external,... More

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 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!

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
