Ishicho is centrally located, within a short walking distance to the main shopping strip and a short cab ride to Kiyomizu-dera. It was our first experience staying at a ryokan and we loved it. The tatami futons and blankets were very comfortable, the room had...More
My family and I stayed in Kyoto for a few days and this is where we stayed.
I must say as a hotel it is at its best 3 stars (being fairly generous), but it doesn't try to be anything more. The staff was courteous...More
Location was in a good location and close to many restaurants. The room itself was larger than most places in the area and it had a nice little sitting area facing the garden decorated patio. There was four of us (2 adults and 2 kids)...More
This modern ryokan could do far better. There was a lackadaisical air and the staff were quite disinterested. Which is a huge pity as this property in central Kyoto is could offer far more in terms of overall service.

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
