Really enjoyed staying there, they upgraded our room for free when we arrived because there was only one other couple staying there. We were able to drop off our bags at 7am without any problems. We were greeted nicely by the people who worked there. The futons were incredibly comfortable, the matcha tea was delicious and their Japanese breakfast was delightful. Definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in Kyoto.

Super-friendly staff (so can't understand reviewer Diana P's comment) at this well-located hostelry close to the fabulous/must-see Kyoto Railway Station... Yes a railway station!... see separate review. The main-man could not have been more helpful in showing us the free car parking opposite the hotel and in giving ideas and advice. The room was fairly basic but well-equipped and the beds were comfortable. No complaints and ok price-wise for a city-centre spot at ca. £120 for the night.

This is a no-frills ryokan that has all the basics. The room and bathroom were old but spotlessly clean. Service at the front desk was really friendly and helpful. The JPY 500-1000 breakfast options are incredibly good value. There's a Family Mart convenience store two blocks away, which is helpful. The centre of town is a few blocks away.

We have been traveling in japan for the last 2 weeks and are near the end of our trip in Kyoto. We have stayed at several other hotels in Japan as well as a different ryokan in Kyoto about 5 mins away from here. The staff has been off putting- they do not feel approachable in asking questions. In other places the staff has been overly helpful and apologetic and overly happy to help us- here it seems the opposite and not at all characteristic of what I view as Japanese hospitality. They also charge you for everything- we asked them to call a local number to make a reservation and charged us for the call. The Onsen/private bath costs money as well. It is also far too high a price for this kind of poor attitude/ service. You can get an equal room for lower price at a more hospitable ryokan. Spend your money elsewhere!
