Awesome location, awesome food & hospitality. Great experience!
Why 4 stars and not 5 - I guess mainly because of the cost. And the fact that we stayed in other traditional inns as well in japan which were cheaper & offered larger rooms than this one. Tho they were in remote places & not the very popular Kyoto. So the higher cost here is understandable. Another reason can be that you get too much attention, while that can be a plus for some people, I do get little uncomfortable.
But yes - it was still very very nice and I would do it again when I can justify to spend $$$ again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Motonago hospitality With Kyoto flavor a homy feeling. Motonago nestles in a quiet, nostalgic scene, completely apart from the hustle and bustle of the city. Once you step outside, you can sense the overflowing taste of Kyoto - Japan's old capital. All the charm of Kyoto is gathered here, where Motonago stands. On entering through a door with a tiled roof while seeing a tasteful earthen wall made using traditional techniques, Motonago welcomes you with a warm hospitality that only a humble inn like ours, with its 11 rooms, can offer. Guests can relax while enjoying dinner and breakfast in their rooms, and our staff wear traditional kimonos as they serve the meals. Kyoto style cuisine made with special seasonal ingredients succeeds in bringing the Kyoto taste, with our chefs' sophisticated skills and selected menu, to our guests. ... more less
