Yamamotoya is a traditional inn located in the heart of Kinsaki Onsen. The inn has 15 rooms facing the very picturesque river that runs through the town. The rooms, layout, and food are pretty much what you would expect for the price with Yamamotoya being in the low to mid priced range (Ryokans can be notoriously expensive). The room was... More

This was a very classy ryokan hotel, so it was a little pricey in comparison with other ryokan we had stayed at; moreso when you note as well that meals are not included automatically - they are extra, and must be arranged for in advance. There are plenty of local restaurants to choose from within walking distance as alternative options... More

Right in the middle of the seven public onsens overlooking the canal in a great location. The rooms are nothing special, but are clean and quiet. We didn't have a chance to try their food unfortunately with quite a number of restaurants nearby. Good value at $200 AUD/$150 US per night.

We had a lovely stay in this traditional ryokan. Warm and friendly. The location is good. It located at the heart of Kinosaki-onsen town and in between the 7 public bathhouses. Three down the road on the right and another three down the road on the left. Around 8 mins walk from train station. Once we came out from the... More

We picked this hotel because the price was quite reasonable for a night stay with 2 meals at a traditional onsen ryokan. We were happy with what we got. The room was spacious and overlooked the canal. There is a nice peaceful atmosphere along the canal at night. A service staff comes in to serve the meal during dinner time... More

Great experience and best location! It is a traditional Ryokan well located in the city center. (actually there are two main streets in Kinoski Onsen). English is spoken but not for all of the staff which I must say were nice to us and helpful - when they showed us our room ( a nice tatami floor room with our... More

It was really a 3.4. Rooms are good view over the willow lined canal was great. Clean and onsen is nice for a ryokan. The whole experience of Kinosaki is great fun. Walking the streets in Kimono and Yukata. They have little ice cream or beer stops along the way as you walk from onsen to onsen. Reason for the... More

It's probably easier to review a ryokan once I have stayed in at least half a dozen. It is not a regular hotel, so there are things that are missing and added. This is basically a room with a toilet. The other common facility is a restaurant and a tiny lobby. Please note that you don't have any shower/bath in... More

Just one night at this beautiful Ryokan and despite a slight English barrier, everything worked out perfectly. It was our first pure Ryokan experience and we were not disappointed. The service and Japanses set food was just amazing for dinner and breakfast. Everything was very organised - meals times were set and we pre-booked our 40 minutes private onsen (an... More

From the moment we arrived, the staff were very friendly and helpful despite the language barrier. As soon as we checked in for our 2 nights stay, we arranged the times that dinner and breakfast would be delivered to our room. We also pre-booked in our private onsen session for each night. Once the formalities were finished, we were shown... More
