Do not judge a book by its cover. This is my personal advice to any traveller who is naturally tempted to draw a conclusion about this ryokan, judging by the name of the ryokan. I personally had a misconception of this ryokan when I first came across it. It may not be your usual 5-star luxury hotel, but it's services... More

Have a great stay in this inn. Facilities all in well condition. Staff able to communicate in English. But there is a bit far if walk from subway/JR . It take around 10 minutes to reach the nearest station which is Kyoto station. There was a convenient store within 3 minute walking distance.

We're really enjoy to stay here. The cleanliness of the room and the friendly staff did provide the useful and detailed information of the route. I would give them 5 stars for this portion too.

Stayed at Budget Inn for 3 nights with my husband and 5 month daughter. They were very accommodating. Kyoto Station is a 10 minute walk and you can catch buses all around the city to visit the various attractions. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Because I have a small child, having the kitchen sink in the room was... More

I stayed here with my husband and 2 kids aged 14 & 16 for 5 nights. The room is well equiped. Clean up room service was provided daily. Washing and drying machine located on ground floor without restriction on using time. The charge of them is very reasonable. If you have to check in very late, they could make special... More

Spent 3 nights at this warm hostel. Staff are all very friendly. Room is regular to small in Japanese standard but necessary facilities are available. The location is close to Kyoto station and very close to bus station of a few useful routes. Neighborhood are quiet and organized. All stars!

My husband and I stayed here with our two sons (18 & 19) for 5 nights. Very satisfied with the location of this accommodation - within 10 minutes walk of Kyoto Station. For a budget hotel, very good facilities within the room & at the accommodation itself. Very helpful staff. This place has been well thought out. Separate toilet and... More

Our family stayed in Kyoto for four nights and found the staff incredibly helpful. Our room had a small kitchen with a fridge and kettle and there is a larger well-equipped kitchen downstairs. Every thought has been out into how to make the traveller's life easier - from the free laundry soap to the mini maps of the area detailing... More

Stayed in Kyoto 6 days and this was the place to stay. We did some research but the amount of detail they provided to us was incredible. In each room there is a binder and in that binder is EVERYTHING YOU NEED. From what are the closest restaurants around( including maps). Staff are so friendly too! Just don't unplug the... More

I stayed here with 2 other adults and a 2 year old toddler. The room was big and clean. Has a small kitchen area with fridge and sink. Clean bathroom and toilet. It also has a sliding door to a small balcony. It's about a 10 minutes walk to Kyoto station but for the price it was worth it. There... More
