My family just visited kyoto and chosen Matsui Honkan to experience Japanese Ryokan. The location is so excellent, so we only paid taxi for 1ooo yen from kyoto station to arrive there. That day, kyoto was so hot like about 36-38c. The lobby was no A/C upon our arrival due to "saving energy", and it looked very old-fashion.However, we stayed in our room mostly. The meals they provided was so delicate thought my teens didn't adapt to raw stuffs. Suprisingly, ryokan sent steaks for my kids as complimentary. After dinner we went to lots of sightseeing areas just by walking. The public bath serves till 1Am, but it is in-door. The house keeping tidied up our room, then setting up the Japanese mats and comforters for us professionly. The in-room breakfast was Japanese style as well, and served with fresh fruits and drinks.Thanks so much for the thoughtful services, we will come back!
