I stayed here for one night from 4-5SEP2016. And I get it, this is supposed to be a Japanese cultural experience. But I don't understand why anyone would want to experience this. The property is quite old and I might describe it as "dingy." The rooms were small and devoid of furniture and many amenities people would enjoy in a hotel room. Tiny fridge, no ice, the room reeked of cigarettes, the bathroom was TINY. We did the whole experience with dinner and breakfast. The woman who served dinner in our room was very polite but only spoke Japanese and it would have been nice to know what we were eating. We ate it all and it was good. I will also say that the air conditioning was nice and powerful. Location in Gion was good. The internet was fast. But these old-school hotels without chairs or beds are not my cup of tea.

Easy to reach by several buses from the station the hotel is in a district which is very pretty and within walking distance of lots of bars and restaurants. We were greeted by staff who could not have been more helpful. They gave us a map and bus route map and showed us how to go to the places we had chosen to visit. When we returned our luggage was already in our room. We had a very large room with bathroom, but used the onsen which although a little dated was spacious and I was pleased that I was the only one in there! We managed to find more futons in the cupboard and layered up our beds to make sleeping on the mats more comfortable. Breakfasts were very nice with a good selection of Japanese dishes and the ladies showed us how to eat certain foods. One late afternoon walking back to our hotel we were lucky enough to spot 3 Geisha girls walking in our road which although brief was very memorable. The rooms and the facilities are a little dated but the staff and the location made up for this.

Great location - in walking distance to the city center, the river area with lots of restaurants and bars, and many of the best attractions in Kyoto. It is also well connected with metro and bus-stops close by, and we traveled by bus, trains and metros during our entire stay.

The rooms are large, and very well presented. We chose a traditional Japanese room, sleeping on mattresses on the floor. It was a fun experience, but they are pretty thin, and it might be a better choice for a shorter stay. Same goes for the communal bathrooms where you shower - they are nice and it was a great cultural experience - but leaves little privacy, so it might not be for everyone. There is also a great coin-operated laundry machine to use for guests, which we appreciated.

At check-out, the reception-staff insisted we needed to pay again for our already pre-paid room. We did as we were in a bit of a hurry to catch a train, and had already left when a manager came running after us down the street to sort it out, and promised they would call the credit card company to have have the double charge refunded - which they did and we got our money back - but the whole thing was a little unpleasant, and made us late for the bus we had planned to take to the train station. Overall though - this is a good choice if you want to have a try of some traditional Japanese accommodation.

Room Tip: Try the traditional Japanese rooms for a taste of ryokan-life

I stayed with my family just only one night in this ryokan. It was an amazing experience: a real Japanese house! Excellent location, in Gion district where you can access some of famous historic sights. Excellent food: you can taste a good meal cooked in Kyoto style. Excellent hospitality. Then you can soak in a warm outdoor and indoor Japanese bath. Recommanded

There aren't enough kind words to say about Gion Fukuzumi and their staff. My parents, sister, and I had an amazing experience during our 2 night stay...and my parents are difficult people to please. Our lady who was assigned to us was so sweet, caring, and thoughtful. This staff truly goes out of their way to create a 5 star experience for their guests. The meals were delicious and beautifully crafted. We had a private bath so I never visited the communal bath which I regret. We had a lot of luggage so we took a taxi from Kyoto station which cost about 1500 yen ($15). The ryokan was located in a great location, very close to the main areas of Gion district. My family and I wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you so much for the amazing experience, Gion Fukuzumi!
