    Superb

    Family run Ryokan style very roomy. The family was helpful in making our stay comfortable inspite of limited spoken English

    The 2230 curfew can be inconvenient and lack of an Onsen bath in this style of hotel.

    good location, few minutes walk away to major temples and shopping districts.

    we stayed in this hotel for three nights and felt it was over priced for the basic facilities. we expected a more authentic Japanese style to what we got and there is a curfew to 10pm and it felt like living with my parents as a teenager!

    Traditional Japanese. Very nice traditional rooms, very clean. The staff is wonderful - very helpful, go out of their way to make you feel welcome, spontaneously deliver snacks to your room (e.g., big fresh strawberries).

    Very good

    Japanese style rooms, 3 dogs , friendly staff and great effort from every staff to take care of the guests.

    services are limited, hard pillows, a bit far from conveniences, no internet in the room, we had 2 days booking but some how the owner prepared the bill after day 1. A bit more pricey compared to the other very good hotel, Royal park.

    Fabulous

    It is a very good option for a Ryokan. Very well located, beautiful surroundings. Great ambience. Good that it has an en suite bath, shower and bathroom. Spacious room good for a family of 5 like us.

    The staff are very friendly but better if they can speak a little better English so they can help and give instructions on where to go, etc.

    Amazing stay there. The location is perfect, the best part of town and its traditional look made the stay in Kyoto even more worth it. We are going back there in less than a month.

    Fabulous

    Perfect location in the Gion district. The area is so beautiful we walked all day from one small lane to the next. The owners ( I believe an older parents and a young couple) are so kind, nice and welcoming. The dogs are adorable our daughters didn't want to leave them.

    Nothing really. It is after all a home-stay so we respect the rules from the home owner(s). Check in is allowed only from 4-7, curfew is at 10:30 pm and check out is at 10 am. We didn't sleep very well on the mats and the hard pillows though, but the whole experience was lovely.

    Fabulous

    Traditional Ryokan rooms. Nice meal served in room but was not including in the Bookings.com price. Helpful staff. Excellent location in the heart of Kyoto. Walked to many shrines, restaurants and shopping.

    Expensive.

    Fabulous

    We have made a good choice to stay there for 2 nights. Location is great, in the most kyoto-like area, next to Yasaka-jinja Shrine, and walking distance to the famous Kiyomizu-dera Temple. 5 min walk to bus station and 10 min walk to metro. We enjoy the walking because the environment and buildings around are very traditioal. Host family and their dogs are very nice. No breakfast, but sushi in convenient shop around (5 min walk) is very delicious.
