Very traditional ryokan, lots of Japanese staying here and enjoying themselves. Room very clean. Plenty of wash basins and very nice public bath. I hurt my leg falling in a street drain (beware in the dark) and the staff sat me down and brought ice and towels and hot tea. There was a choice of Japanese or western breakfast, a... More

Staff doesn't speak English, you'll need your hands to communicate, not that willing to help either Rooms are simple but fine Public bath and toilets, all Japanese style to immerse you in their culture Location is good, very near the west entrance of the castle park, but not close to the station, like 25 min on foot

This is a small family run ryokan right in the middle of the old part of Kanazawa and very close to the castle. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The family were so considerate at all times, offering umbrellas and even drying us off when we came back wet! The evening meal was a thing of beauty and should not... More

Ryokan is Japanese style inn meaning limited furniture, no privacy and you sleep on the mats, so get ready for hard pillow and futon on the mat floor, for one night no problem but I wouldn’t extended it. They do have Wi-Fi and there is lounge with chairs and tables so there is back support while sitting available, the deal... More

After reading reviews, looked forward to this ryokan and was sorely disappointed. The narrow green concrete walled room was small, grim and had us out in the rain rather than remaining in such an unpleasant space. The young women were pleasant but we never got a smile or acknowledgment of our presence from the elderly man at the entry. The... More

We chose this Ryokan because my daughter told us we had to experience at least a couple of nights in a real Japanese hotel during our trip to Japan. Being somewhat older than the average traveller, I had some trepidation but agreed to go ahead. First, the Ryoken itself. It is well sited, close to the castle, gardens and the... More

We stayed here for three nights. Rooms are big but simple. Most of the staff speak good english and they are all very service minded and friendly. The ryokan has a shuttle service to the railway station upon leaving. The food is great and plentyfull!' Choice of western or japaneese breakfast. Location is perfect and close to all major sights!

The best thing about the Nakayasu Ryokan is the experience of staying at a family run Ryokan. The breakfast provided in the morning is also very tasty and feels authentic. The rooms and lobby are clean - but feel slightly worn. There's nothing luxurious or fabulous about the place (words some reviewers have described) but it feels comfortable and convenient.... More

This is a cheap roykan experience and for the price, we would not have expected much more. But the hotel is looking tired and dated, and everything is very basic. Unfortunately the service was functional and not very friendly. The location is close to the park, and not far from the market (which are two of the highlights of Kanazawa),... More

This large ryokan is in a good location, relatively close to the Omicho market (we ate here a coupe of times for good sushi) and Kanazawa castle. We walked to the ryokan from the train station, though it was probably a good 20 minutes or so. The room was a very good size, though had a distinct tatami smell to... More
