I have stayed at the Three Sisters Inn a number of times and it is always a wonderful experience. First time was way back in 1997 when I took my two sisters there! If you are looking for a "Japanese experience" in a very peaceful and quiet environment, do go the three sisters. It does mean though that you sleep...

I first stayed at Three Sisters Inn Annex more than 12 years ago with my first tour group and have stayed with them every trip to Kyoto since. Its a great location close to the heart of Kyoto with easy access to many wonderful temples and restaurants. Only a little way from the famous philosophers walk and minutes from Heian...

My family of 4, including an 8 year old boy and a 10 year old girl, truly enjoyed staying here. This is the sort of place that appeals to people who like a bed and breakfast more than a hotel. We stayed in a room that included 2 connected 6 tatami mat rooms and a full bath. The kids slept...

This was my first trip to Japan and I found it quite bewildering at first. But I happily found the Three Sisters Inn though the advice of a friend who had lived in Japan some years ago.The Inn is located in a quiet neighbourhood, but it is very well connected to everything by busses that run frequently from a bus...

We stayed @ 3 Sisters Inn Annex at the recommendation of a friend based in Osaka. This recommendation was made on the basis that we were close to most attractions but that it was a nice quiet area. We weren't disappointed with this advice and after we wandered through the charming entrance and garden, we realised we had found a...

we stayed here with 4 of our friends. The hotel is close to the Heian shrine, but that's about it. there's a strange curfew, which makes you feel like you're 16. the evening attendant is so sweet, and so is the person in the early morning. however the person in the afternoon is seriously unhelpful and rude in Japanese standards....

I stayed here a week (which wasn't enough time :( ) and would stay again. This is a ryokan built into a modern two (perhaps three? I stayed on the 2nd floor) building. Nice Tatami rooms, I had an ensuite bathroom (which was dated but otherwise fine). Very friendly, helpful, English speaking owner and staff. Excellent location in Higashi-yama, about...

We stayed at the Three Sisters Inn Annex for three nights, inspired by a discussion thread we read on Lonely Planet. The Inn is quiet, in a residential neighborhood but only ~20 meters away from a main street with key bus routes, you can also walk to the subway in ~20 mins (briskly). The rooms were spacious (we stayed in...

We stayed in the Three Sisters in for 4 nights. We had spent nearly 20 hours travelling so were both jet lagged. This was so tranquil, it helped us to relax and adjust. We wanted to come to the Three Sisters because we were looking for an authentic Japanese experience not a luxury 5 star hotel. It does look old...

We stayed at Three Sisters Inn Annex for three nights, and had a wonderful experience. The ryokan was well maintained, comfortable, and the management and staff were extremely helpful and kind. I felt like a guest in someone's home, rather than in a hotel. The staff all spoke English and could help with information and communication with taxi companies and...

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.
