not worth the price

the male staffer working the night shift, wifi
5.3
the only good thing about this place was the male staffer on over the night. He was helpful in suggesting places to visit and could speak and understand English. apart from that my husband and i were extremely disappointed. We were an hour early to check in so had to wait around the foyer area. We thought we would use this time to start looking at activities to do whilst in Gion. The ladies at the counter could not help with anything as they didn't speak English. We had to figure out how to use the public phone in reception (i.e how much a phone call costs) and after numerous call drop outs and call backs we managed to book in a dinner and a tea ceremony for that afternoon. Upon entering our room we were hanging for a green tea. something you get in all the hotels in Tokyo. However they did not have any. Only instant coffee. This place is extremely overpriced for what it is. We didn't enjoy the traditional Royokan experience as it didn't feel authentic at all. Would not recommend this place.

Excellent Japanese-Style Guest House

Uniquel, comfortable, affordoable

My stay was short but great. The facility is nice, clean, and comfortable. A great experience to stay at a (foreigner-friendly) ryokan. The dinner/beer garden/maiko meeting & performance on the roof was nice as well.
Wendy C. Couples Australia, July 6, 2013
A nice and comfortable ryokan~

The room had a spacious bathroom, a smoking/social area, and lots of space for sleeping

The ryokan was close to public transport, staff were friendly. There are also maiko at night to serve food and entertainment!
Martin B. Couples Australia, April 9, 2012
Charming Traditional Stay

Amazing insight into Japanese culture
9
the hotel provides a traditional japanese experience, the beds are made up, like the seats on the ground. the rooms are comfortable and a good size. no rooms have ensuite showers, there is a cubicle shower at the end of each hallway and a communal shower at the lobby, the communal shower is not a set of shower cubicles, its a communal shower & bath!!
Hotel Feature Tip: We found it difficult to find the hotel, as it has no real signage, and we can't read Japanese. We ended up asking someone when we were standing right out front of the place!
Kristal H. Groups Hong Kong, April 7, 2012

Stay in Gion Shimoso

Location
6.3
This is a pleasent hotel but needs some money spending on it, it's looking quite aged and it was very basic for the price I paid. The hotel staff on reception did not speak much English and could not recommend anything to do other than leaflets that were on the side. However the staff were smiley. Due to it being a traditional ryokan the futon on the floor and pillows were very uncomfortable and the air con was very loud, you should expect a uncomfortable nights sleep if you are used to western style hotels but it was worth trying it out for a night. Would I stay again? probably not.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: The hotel is a good location so that was a positive.
