We really appreciated staying in this very simple place offering all commodities and run by a lovely old lady. Free bicycles lended by the owner allowed us to enjoy Kyoto at our own pace and avoided us to queue for city buses.

It has the basic comforts in a traditional setting - small 'hotel' with a homely feel. Staffed with friendly locals who speak good English has made our stay enjoyable. We arrived with our bento boxes and were served tea and cookies. Meeting the 82year old owner was amazing - well educated & travelled. She runs the Ryokan with some help.... More

We chose this place as we wanted an experience in a traditional ryokan. Id done my homework before we arrived (googlemaps) so it was easy to find. When we arrived we were greeted by a rather elderly lady who gave us house slippers and showed us to our room. We were completely unaware of the customs of for example not... More

Really friendly service here! Room was traditional ryokan (as shared toilet and onsen/shower). It is family athmosphere here. Maybe we did wrong choice not eating breakfasts here. The street is really quiet, and our car was parked just front of the house (space only for one car). But just 100m walking, and rhythm of the street is much more active.... More

--I was traveling with a friend for the summer in Japan. We were mostly in Tokyo for our trip because we had old classmates and family there, but we decided on a side trip to Kyoto as well. I'm not a huge fan of big city life, so I absolutely loves that Nashinoki was set away from most of the... More

Staying at the Nashinoki Inn was a wonderful experience for an affordable price. I looked up the inn's website on google prior to coming, which gives detailed instructions on the easiest way to get to the inn. (Otherwise may be hard to find - Takes about 10 min walking). The inn didn't have record of my reservation (done on booking.com),... More

Maybe my expectations of what a ryokan experience would be were just incorrect, but this did not meet my expectations. First, the web site gives the walking time from the closest subway station at 7 minutes. Maybe at a running pace with no bags, sure, but lugging suitcases, it's more like 20-30 minutes. Though, you do get to go down... More

This hotel is very clean and very fine with best breakfast. Is not about luxes, but is about experience. The owner (perfect old lady with good english) can recommend to you many possibilities in Kyoto. She was always helpful and it was really good place. Ryokan have small onsen and bikes are for free. Hotel is located next to Imperial... More

I am writing this from the Inn itself, at the end of my week-long stay. I am a female solo traveler attending a conference in town. I can only replicate other people's comments: the owner, who has been in charge of the Inn for 40 years, is adorable and very caring (she had fresh cherries waiting for me every evening),... More

Stayed at Nashinoki Inn last October for three nights; a fine experience. Cozy and clean. Bicycles were available to use for free and were handy in seeing sights. Japanese breakfast was not cheap but well worth the price. If you appreciate a quiet location a bit off the tourist areas, the breakfast and the bicycles, would recommend definitely. TM, Finland

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.
