This was our visit to Japan so we wanted to try a Traditional Japanese style Ryokan most of the ones we checked on line were quite expensive this one was reasonable in price for a family of five, staff were friendly but did not speak much english but as we have a family member who dos speak Japanese it not a problem and room was what we expected just enough room to sleep on mattes ( Tatami )the bathroom was a plastic modular type as we have experienced in other Japanese hotels which is the only disappointing aspect of all the hotels we stayed at. The room was clean and all bedding and linen was provided fresh and tea making facilities, we enjoyed the use of the on sen.. hot baths ...The foyer although small still had a western hotel feel about it, the location was ok close to nice restaurants. We ate out every night love food, but most places want take Cards and used up our cash pretty quick, as we dont like carrying to much cash. The hotel did provide bikes for us for at reasonable price which we found practical for getting around Kyoto and using a small GPS to find different Temples and location of interest, over all we enjoyed our stay there !
