We stayed at this hotel in March 2006 for two nights. Although it is definitely budget lodging, it is clean and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. The location is good (1 block from the river and a 15 minute walk to the Gion), and it is in a quiet residential neighborhood. The Japanese breakfast is delicious (they also offer a Western-style breakfast). If you are expecting glamour, this is not the place for you; but I find tatami mats and futons the ultimate in comfort. The bathroom is shared, and shared by many. I expected the "public bath" to be a large one like other ryokan I have stayed in; this "public bath" is literally a small tub. Choose the shower. Overall, if you are looking for a traditional inn for a good price, I would recommend this ryokan.
