As Western visitors we felt that this was more of a backpackers delight than a traditional Ryokan! The place was honestly the coldest lodging I have ever been to. The ryokan lady loomed out of the dim surroundings every time we came near the reception area with a huge coat, hat and face mask. It was freezing, every time we...

Despite having booked months before hand, we arrived nto be told that there was only 1 very small room available. The room was a disgrace. It was dusty and the linen and towels were stained. For an added bonus, there was hairs on the bedding and on our pillows. Something was biting my legs and I wasn't unable to ascertain...

The room we had is 3 room tatami, my friend and i 2 person staying in it, the Ryokan staff could not speak English well, the staircase to level 2 is tiny, whose who with huge luggage might find difficulty, but take note of the distance of the Ryokan from Kyoto train station, it is about 20mins walk!! not a...

Those who have complained here about the size of the rooms clearly havn't stayed in Ryokans before. Yes, the 3 tatami room is small, but then so are 3 tatami!!! The main drawback was that I came back around 4pm to drop off some shopping, only to find my room key missing from the box at reception. On going upstairs...

This is one of the cheapest ryokan in Kyoto. Also we look at the distance from central station. We ordered a Japanese-style room well in advance, because we planned a visit to Kyoto during cherry blossom. Unfortunately, upon arrival, it turned out that there is no room, such as ordered. At that time, others also have similar problems. It was...

Located in a walkable distance from the train station, this is small hotel. It is actually a private house in the Japanese style. This modest hotel was not comfortable nor convenient, and I wasn't happy with the room. In the night was very loud, the walls didn't isolate noises. But the advantage was the location, price and tea for the...

We stayed at this ryokan for 6 nights and I've got the following to say: Pros - Open and relatively fast wifi connection (no passwords, logins or other crap) - Quite clean - Rooms are adequately air-conditioned - They offer cheap parking but have only limited spots (1000yen/night) - The toilets are not japanese style (i.e. holes in the bloody...

OK, I'm not going to say this is the worst hotel or ryokan I've been to or that this place has no redeeming value, but this place had too many problems for me to ignore. I generally tend to be tolerant and not complain, but I really think the management of this place can do better. This was the cheapest...

This place is a budget Ryokan, something we wanted. Small property I guess privately held by a family and run quite well. Shared toilet and bathroom but clean and has everything required. Clean bedrooms. Since this place is in a small lane, best take the Japanese address if you plan to walk to the location. The location of the property...

Rooms are quite big compared to Japanese standards. The entrance hall seems a bit dark and dodgy with luggage and shoes scattered all over, but don't dispair. Upper floor rooms are squeeky clean with ample space and comfortable ensuite bathrooms and small balconies. Don't expect a view though. The tatami mats is something to get used to and I won't...

“Rooms with ensuite are basically one metre by one and a half metre with a handbasin lodged between the deep bath and small toilet; very tight and certainly would not work for a larger framed person! Water is hot - bring your own toilet paper if you like a little luxury!”
