We loved our stay in the old style house, yes our room was on the small side and yes we didn’t think we would have to pay for towels. However it was close to the train station in a very quiet area. The staff were...More
Room is very small and not comfortable. Bathroom is tiny. Was surprised to be charged extra for towels having already paid extra for a private bathroom. Have stayed in better ryokans elsewhere. Not good value for a small room with tiny private bathtoom.
We were placed in a dark windowless narrow room, which had me worried, but then I asked at the front desk if there were any other rooms available for 4, and they gave us a wonderful room with a loft and a large window at...More
What a gorgeous little hotel! As Australians it was really wonderful to experience a traditional Japanese inn! The whole place just smelled heavenly, like fresh straw and incense. The staff were lovely and very helpful. We weren't in Kyoto long enough to take advantage of...More
Traditional Japanese style inn, with futon mattresses, etc.
Friendly staff. Central location. Well maintained. Common area kitchen is useful for cooking breakfast.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures.

with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

My mother stayed in a single room with a private bathroom, and hers had a toilet, sink, and shower/bath. Her ensuite was identical to my double room's ensuite, so I think it would be safe to assume all rooms with private bathrooms include a toilet.
There is also a toilet in the common area of the hotel, next to the kitchen.

Takkyubin (Black Cat) picks up and delivers anywhere in Japan (very efficiently too!) I'm sure the staff at Nagomi Ryokan Yu would help you book a pick-up and complete the consignment note. They are always very helpful.
