We stayed for 3 nights in this traditional Japanese inn. The room was so clean and pretty and we looked out onto a small garden. Wi fi was an issue so we tended to use it at local stores. The onsen was very clean and well organised and the staff so helpful. Insulation in the ceiling was lacking and we...

Stayed here as part of an organised tour. Its a great family run Ryokan, just a few blocks from Kyoto station. Rooms were very clean, most with en-suite. If you are expecting a 5 star hotel, you will be disappointed. However if you want affordable traditional accommodation is a convenient location, then this is your place!

I stayed in a ryokan on the top floor which although was very spacious, was so dusty and there was a strange clicking sound that was quite distracting. WiFi only worked at reception and my kettle didn't work. Absolutely perfect location though, and the cats that wander around were sweet.

Short to the Kyoto station, small ryokan run by a very friendly family. They put on the heat Every day So your room is nice and warm when you come back from a long day of sightseeing. I also highly recommend the Japanese breakfast for 1000 yen per person. So good and tasty and keeps you going till lunchtime!

Normally I would say near the station is not a good idea but it works in Kyoto because you are near every train and bus line possible. There are lots of restaurants nearby too. The ryokan lobby is small and cramped but the rooms are quite spacious and well appointed in the traditional style. The bathrooms are quite small and...

We were very lucky that there was a vacancy, as we had not booked anything and just were going door to door. Such lovely people and so very helpful. We had a large room, no ensuite but being upstairs we were close to the communal bathroom. It was very comfortable and I loved the tiny self serve Japanase tea service....
