Our final ryokan was the best of three fabulous Japanese traditional accommodations we stayed in during our trip. The rooms were beautifully laid out and it was en-suite! We had a separate shower room and bathroom. There is a spacious communal area where WiFi is free, a great place to congregate to chat with fellow travelers about their adventures that... More

My brother and I stayed here and it's the only ryokan we went to in Japan so possibly others have a more "authentic" feel but this served us well. The location is really easy to find from the train station and the breakfast is great. Room itself is spacious and welcoming to come back to each night.

The biggest stand-out feature of this traditional ryokan was the great location. It was 5 minutes walk from Kyoto station where you can catch trains or busses to all the tourist attractions. The taxi fare from the Gion district was 1000Yen. The rooms were spacious with private bathrooms. There was no noise at all at night. There were big cupboards... More

My daughter (6yr old) and I stayed in this Ryokan in June 2015. It was perfect! Very, very friendly staff, clean large bedroom, with tea making facilities and a huge wardrobe to place suitcases in and an enchanting onsen (hot bath!!). I have read some of the reviews on here and found that although people are complaining, they are generally... More

We stayed 5 nights here recently on a first trip to Japan. We were budget conscious so a Ryokan experience suited us. Heianbo is a couple of minutes walk from Kyoto station and city buses. The staff are friendly and helpful and the place is clean and homely. The downsides are there is only wifi in the common area, not... More

Have just left Kyoto having spent 3 nights at Ryokan Heianbo in a room for two with en suite facilities. The room is very basic but most importantly; clean. The family that run the business are very happy to receive guests and are always very helpful. The place itself is in need of a re-vamp but the fact that is... More

It was the first time visiting Japan and everybody told us the experience in a Ryokan is a must. It is true! It is a great experience! Ryokan Heianbo is very clean and in a very good location, close to the train station, a mall, pharmacies, places to eat, etc. Everybody is very kind! The breakfast is also an experience!... More
