Well run, friendly and close to transport links, trains and buses.
We would use it again if we return to Kyoto
The breakfasts were good, with Japanese options, which were very good.
It was good to return after a busy day and relax with their special teas

I had issues with travel and was delayed on my stopover in December on the flight in to Japan. As this was due to conditions outside of my control, I informed Luck You once I had feedback. Their policy does charge 50% of these fees whether or not you are responsible for the change or not. I notified them about 3 days prior to my arrival in Kyoto. It is rather unfortunate as they are quite a lovely space. So I ended up only spending 1 short evening in Luck You. The staff did upgrade my room as I was getting charged for 1 night and 2 nights at 50% off (results of my delays from the airline).

Thank you very much for staying with us!
According to our rules, there will be a 100percent cancellation fee 7 days before arrival.
Since we are a small hotel with only 7 rooms, cancellation of reservations has a big impact on our management compared to large hotels. So, we feel sorry but usually ask to pay the cancellation fee as prescribed.
However, in consideration of your situation , we decided to reduce the cancellation fee up to half price and upgraded, then we hoped that you enjoy Ryokan experience.
We still feel very sorry for asking for extra expenses. but, thank you for your understanding and for liking the room.
We would be happy if you could stay again at another opportunity,Looking forward to see you again:)

If you want a genuine Japanese ryokan experience this is definitely the place to go. The room was very cozy and comfortable. It has all the essential amenities like a toilet with a small bathtub, fridge and safe. The staff was very welcoming and spoke English. The traditional Japanese breakfast was very delicious and had something for everyone. They offered us free admission to the nearby onsen/bathhouse. All in all this was a true 5/5 stay.

Wish we stayed longer in Luck You at Kyoto, they were so friendly and helpful. We were given a map and plenty of information about the city and where to visit. Wish we had more time! It was such a nice environment to be in, the whole place was immaculate and all the staff were lovely and more than happy to help any way they could. It’s very traditional and was an awesome experience rather than staying at a hotel where you can feel a little disconnected. Highly recommend anyone stay there whether you’re with family or friends. Thank you to all the staff and owners :)
