Spent the weekend here after doing much research on the perfect ryokan that had old Japanese charms with modern western comforts. We thought we had nailed it with hoshinoya Kyoto. How wrong we were.
Don't get me wrong, this is a nice property. But aside from the restaurant, there is nothing else. No spa, no pool, no area to hangout.
The main draw which was the room is a safety hazard. While large by japanese standard, isn't luxurious nor very comfortable.
The service is lacking by the exacting Japanese standards and English is spoken but not understood It was very fratraring.
The saving grace is the restaurant food was very good and very expensive as well.
You are better off staying at the other ryokans in Kyoto and popping over for dinner. It's way too expensive for what it offers.
