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.

Visited Kyoto at the peak of cherry blossom season so most of the rated hotels were either fully booked or overpriced. This review is marked taking firmly into consideration that we paid 140,000 Yen for 4 nights. So it wasn't cheap.

Overall old and average rooms. Although the rooms are the ryokan style, the hallways and rest of it is a multi-storied hotel (and rather dingy one at that). No complaints about the comfort of the futon style bedding. They are supposed to put away the...More

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.
