Excellent experience for foreign tourists. Hotel staff were exceptional friendly and helpful, most spoke acceptable English. It was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed the dining experience of a Kaiseki dinner and Japanese breakfast, although dinner seemed a little rushed. The Onsen was not what we expected being not so hot or smelling of minerals, perhaps we had higher expectations of an Onsen bath. The room toilet and shower seemed rather dated. There was good coffee free in reception for our western taste.

Very nice concept of Typical Japanese Inn. The staff is very nice and they do their best to meet everybody’s desires. The public bath at the 6th floor is very relaxing as well after all day walking in Kyoto. They propose to take the breakfast directly in the ryokan with typical Japanese dishes, a bit disconcerting at the beginning but definitely a nice experience. To recap, a good address to enjoy traditionnal Japanese lifestyle.
