We stayed 4 nights and can't reccomend it enough. We were made to feel welcome and the staff were kind and helpful. Rooms were comfortable, cosy, clean and with a traditionally Japanese feel. The hot baths in the basement were such a treat after a long day walking in Kyoto. The lounge area overlooking the garden is a wonderful space to relax. The green tea ceremony and traditional Japanese breakfast are some of our most treasured memories of our time in Japan. Thank you Nishiyama Ryokan for making our stay so special!

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed with another couple for 1 night, but I wish we had more time to fully enjoy the stay at Nishiyama Ryokan. They treated us with care, paid detailed attention to our needs, and the rooms were super clean and the bathrooms were really nice. I also used the big bath downstairs and it was also clean and relaxing. I slept well in a nice futon. The food was first class and I think we ate everything. A big compliment to the chef and the server lady was super assertive and helpful. We were also amazed by the traditional tea ceremony performed and served by the second generation owners. They were so fantastic, polite and kind. We want to come back. I'd recommend this Ryokan to anyone.

An amazing place to stay! The staff are so kind and hospitable, and the facilities are amazing. The breakfast is quite expensive but it's an amazing experience so I would definitely recommend adding breakfast for at least one morning.

Much appreciated the public bath and the tea ceremony. The staff was very helpful. Close to main attractions and markets and near a subway station. The price for similar ryokans in Kyoto the same period was higher.
