Ryokan Okuda is comfortable and clean. Our room was nice and large with a small sitting area off the main tatami mat room and while it wasn't ensuite there was a sink in the room. There were bathrooms down the hall which are shared but it's a very small inn (maybe 4 rooms?) so I never encountered anyone else in the bathroom. The bath/shower is downstairs - lovely, deep, hot onsen and hand shower. Breakfast was served to us privately in a little breakfast room next to our bedroom. Very simple - just toast, fruit and tea/coffee but it was a nice way to start the day. The innkeeper was such a lovely man. He spoke only very limited English but we managed to communicate through hand signals, etc. On our last morning he walked us and our luggage out to the bus stop and helped us board the right bus for Kyoto station. The location is what makes his prices a bit higher - right in the heart of Gion, easy walking distance to restaurants, temples in Eastern Kyoto, the main shopping street, etc.
