We rocked up on January 4th, 2013.
We had no booking but read that Lonely Planet recommends it. We wanted a traditional Japanese room, however, there were none available.
They did have western style available, and even though we were there at 10am, a few hours before check-in. They let us into the room, showed us around and let us refresh before we hit Kyoto to sightsee. They were so helpful and accommodating by letting us into the room before check-in (still needed to be cleaned) and it was a fantastic stay altogether.
We did get to look at the traditional room and they are nice (and affordable) next time maybe!
Budi (guy at reception) is awesome and friendly. He made our stay feel like home and he bent over backwards to help us with any request - he is full of energy and definitely made our stay more enjoyable.
Overall: we would stay there again for the staff and a quality Ryokan.
