We stayed 2 nights in early December and have a great visit. The only negatives were that a loud truck woke us up the first night, a chatty group of 5 women woke us up the 2nd night (although that problem was quickly resolved via a call to the front desk, and they kindly gave us two pairs of Hiiragiya...

This ryokan was just lovely. Our room faced a beautiful little garden and it was just so relaxing to sit and look at it. The service here is great and the staff is very friendly. The food was good and they did a nice job of trying to explain what everything was and how to eat it. The onsens are... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night. We had both dinner and breakfast included in our stay. Both meals were multi-course traditions Japanese. My wife and I are quite adventurous eaters; however, some of the plates in both meals were quite challenging for us. It was an extremely memorable and rewarding experience none the less. We had a...

Service is beyond expectation. The person who was serving us is very friendly, speaks sufficient English to make small conversations. You could even leave your luggage there on the day you check out and come back at night to pick it up. Breakfast was Jap-styled. Different kinds of Jap pickles + tofu + grilled fish + other veggies. Dinner is... More

Great food and very child friendly. Our second stay 2 years in a row. My son loves it, the food, the authentic Japanese room and the ever so friendly staff who makes us feel at home. No bathroom in the room but that doesnt matter so much to us as the Kaiseki makes up for everything else!

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights and were constantly amazed by the warmth and attentiveness of the staff, especially Yukoko (hope that's right) who was assigned to our room. A few days earlier we spent one night at a more upscale ryokan in Hakone, and in comparison to that experience, this ryokan was a bit dated and... More

We spent our first three nights in Japan here, and it was a lovely experience! This is a very traditional inn, with little accommodation to Western style. Our beautiful room had a private toilet and a lovely view of the garden; the shared bath was down the hall, and you had to schedule a time to use it. We were... More

After a fraught and nerve racking taxi ride in two taxis from the station, where we as a family of four got split up and lost of the streets of Kyoto...and after arguing with the miserable old so and so taxi driver...and much shouting ...we all finally arrived at Hiiragiya Bekkan... What a lovely place. We left our Nikes at... More

We stayed for 3 restful nights. Service made us feel like royalty, with our own attendant unobtrusively seeing to our every need. Beautiful tiled onsen baths with nice products. Despite what some other reviewer mentioned, this was one of our most comfortable futon beds we slept on in Japan - soft feather bed on top of futon and comfy pillows.... More

Other reviews covered most things I will go over what I couldn't figure out until I got there. Also we went with a 22 month in tow and write about that. Place is definitely not posh but more rustic and homey feeling, but definitely clean. Each room has its own toilet (which is in a room by itself). It also... More

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
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.
