It is a very good Ryokan in central Kyoto. Nearby subway and bus stations and Pub area (Pontcho) is in Walking distance. The room is quite spacious and clean with tatami-mat and small private bathroom. Great Service!

This hotel is centrally located to the town center so it's really convenient to get around. The staffs here are also great and very friendly. The breakfast was traditional Japanese meal and was really good! The downside is that the room bathroom is slightly older and has a weird smell. If it wasn't anything we couldn't live with. Overall a...

The place is a traditional hotel with Tatami !!! I really enjoyed the stay there. The room is quite spacious and the service is great. Also, location wise, it is quite convenient for public transportation.

We thought this room would be a tatami-mat traditional experience. It as actually just a small box of a room with stained blankets to lay on, on the floor. The entire building was dank and old, and gave us the creepy crawlies. If I had paid $50 USD to stay there, I wouldn't have been surprised. But I was shocked...

Comfortable, clean and affordable in a good location. On a quiet street near two subway stops. The staff was friendly and spoke enough English to provide some help and direction. There were some steps to navigate to our room but not an issue for us.

I did not have much expectation on this hotel but was pleasantly surprise soon as we arrived. The staff was nice and friendly, the room was very spacious (10 tatami mats) and our 17 month old baby was very happy running around the room without us worrying about her falling off beds or bumping into something. A good room style...

I stayed here for 2 nights in April 2016. I booked a Japanese style room (triple). The room was pretty big, came with traditional Japanese tatami mats, an own bathroom, a refrigerator and a flat-screen TV. Free toiletries, towels and a Yukata were provided. There's room service available - beverages only (including soft drinks, beer, sake, ...). Free breakfast is...

We stayed 5 nights at this hotel during cherry blossom season with very reasonable price. The hotel is quite old but very clean and the staffs are very friendly.

For the money this place is excellent. Great location in a nice area, close to good shops, supermarkets, restaurants and subway. Traditional style rooms, quiet, great shower. Large Kimono style dressing gowns changed daily. Free breakfast (but did not try this as out early every morning) Staff friendly. Would definately stay here again. Recommended.

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.
