We only stayed in this hotel for one night. The night of the Gion Matsuri (festival)which happened right outside our hotel which was exciting! We wanted to stay in at least one traditional style japanese Ryokan style hotel, which is what we got with a bit of a twist as the corridors and foyer all look very modern day but... More

We stayed here for 4 nights from Apr 6-9. The hotel is right by Shiyakushomae Station, about a 5 min walk to Teramachi and Shin Kyogoku Shopping Arcades which connects to Nishiki Market and about a 10 min walk to Gion District and from Gion, just a short walk to Yasaka Shrine. The hotel is a bit dated but overall... More

The hotel is right outside a subway station. Except that most of the temple sights are not accessible by subway. The hotel does have a convenient store round the corner and a very popular udon shop just next to the main door. Being a local type hotel, there is a shared common bath. No shower facilities in the room. Only... More

A strange mix between a hotel and a traditional Ryokan. The rooms were okay, but showing signs of age and wear. The room had an en-suite toilet, tatami mat sleeping area and a sink area. Showers are of the traditional Japanese communal type on the ground floor. Beware the limited opening times in the morning and evening. The futon was... More

My boyfriend and I had such a lovely one night stay in April 2013 that we decided to return for another night when we passed back through Kyoto a week later! The rooms are very well equipped and comfortable and the view and location is fantastic. Communal bath and shower facilities very clean. Staff were always very happy and able... More

Maybe a little pricey because it was Sakura season. But location is great - right opposite Kyoto City Hall, 30min walk to Nijo temple, 50min to Silver Pavillion, a stone throw away from Gion and Pontocho street of great restaurants Point to not : communal baths, no bathroom in the room - live it like a Japanese !! Great breakfast
