I stayed for 5 nights at this ryokan in Jan 2013. This is a very pleasant family run hotel, pretty simple layout of rooms, but I was out all day visiting wonderful Kyoto so it was great to have a well located room to come back to in the evening. If you are thinking of a trip to Kyoto, give yourself 3-4 days at least.
This was my first experience of a ryokan, and my first experience of Japan. It did not disappoint. The owner is very sweet and does all she can to help, but communication can be difficult!
The hotel is 200 metres from Kyoto station, which is pretty much a hub for everything you will want to see and do. Even the station itself is worth an extended visit! I took some great photos there!
If you are looking for something clean, comfortable and well located, with a touch of real Japanese experience thrown in, look no further.
And the Japanese breakfast is awesome, even after the fifth one!More
