Stayed 2 nights in this traditional Ryokan in Sept 2013.
We stayed in the new wing on a #02 unit.. very nice and spacious room.. Comfortable tatami. Most importantly, the place is clean.
We had our best Keiseki dinner in the Ryokan on our first night.. very delicous food.. not cheap though.. but very nice.. I would recommend trying it if budget is not a concern.
Staff are very friendly and capable.. esp an uncle, who speak pretty good english..
Location is within close walking distance to a subway station Keage. Unfortunately, while we were there, the Typhoon had cause a train breakdown.. we have to take taxi to the nearest subway station which is Sanjo-Keihan.. cost about 800Yen.. taxi to Kyoto station is about 1200Yen.
