I stayed here with my two children during the Gion Matsuri festival and parade in July 2014. The location could not have been more perfect (just a few steps from the parade route). As other reviewers have mentioned, it is not a brand new facility, but that adds to its charm and the staff were so accommodating. They let me... More

My husband and I stayed here in April 2013, just in time for cherry blossom season. What i remember most from our stay was the delicious Japanese breakfast we were served each morning that included seasonal and local kyoto items. The hostesses at breakfast were very sweet and really made every effort to help us enjoy our stay. The lobby... More

We were spoilt by the huge room and big futons, that we were almost taken aback when we went onto our second ryokan elsewhere (though strictly speaking Sugicho is not a traditional ryokan). 6 futons and there is still space for the central table with 6 seat cushions! Amenities were basic though, indoor onsen (not sure if it is hotspring... More

This hotel was a bargain and was only 2 blocks from the parade site of the Jidai Matsuri (Festival of the Ages) Parade held anually on October 22. The hotel is a bargain for the budget minded, includes a continental breakfast or Japanese Curry dish. The room is spacious and offers the Japanese sleeping experience -- sleeping on a futon... More

If you have budget concern and you just need a simple ryokan stay, then this is for you. It's cheap compare to other ryokan. During our stay, many students staying in this ryokan. But the room is very spacious. However, if you have a sensitive nose, you might find it a bit smelly because of the tatami. There's no wifi... More

Big Room, clean bathroom. Staffs have conversational English & are friendly. They act very fast on customer request. :) Good location for those who don't mind "long hour walking". There's a large partial-indoor shopping area on the other side of the Oike Dori, just opposite. Actually, all the way from the Shiyakusho-mae Station & down to sanjo-dori, are shops &... More

Large though rather basic rooms. The Japanese breakfast is simply great. Staff was very helpful despite their limited English knowledge. Good value overall.

Although a little dated, this hotel offers a good value in Kyoto, which can be extremely busy and expensive at times. The location is not fantastic, but a short walk to 'Shiakusho Mae', where you can catch a bus to many of Kyoto's tourist attractions. We took a taxi to the hotel, so had no problems finding it the first... More

We arrive in the evening and the night counterstaff has limited English capability but he was very helpful. The directions to the ryokan was vague at best and being in a sidestreet make it dfficult to find. So, you must come up from the right exit and it is really 5 minutes walk. The room is big and clean -... More

We stayed 3 nights in this lovely ryokan and it does not disappoint ! Its rather far from Kyoto Station but very close to Imperial palace, Teramachi Street (covered shopping street) and the kyoto International Manga Museum Rooms are very nice, clean, and you will find hair dryer fridge water boiler and green tea for free.
