Basic Traditional Japanese Tatami Style, old Hotel

great location, big size room, Small bathroom without window
the style is very basic Japanese Tatami Style! Location is great! Very tiny bathroom without window, the shower room is also small , no window, which I didn't feel comfortable. They only offer tea, no coffee in the room. No water boiler, instead of hot water bottle.

Nice stay, clean, roomy and value for money

Location, room and staff
It was fun. My sons enjoy it. I did not dine in the hotel but since I have to put a rating in the meal, so I picked the middle ground. Nearby river was fun to walk alone. My sons love sleeping on the tatami as this was their first time trying this and they prefer this over other 5 stars western style hotel.

Comfortable and Clean

The size of the actual room was very spacious, the overall space was clean and maintained, the price was good.
My travel partner and I wanted to stay in a moderately priced accommodations for our first visit to Kyoto. Compared to other "Western" style hotels that we have stayed in Japan, we were really impressed with the size of the room. Definitely a comfortable space for two people. We also had ample space for our luggage. This modern ryokan was able to provide us with a traditional Japanese experience. The place was very clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly, though at times seemed a bit too caught up with work and not acknowledging our presence- Perhaps because we are foreigners? Once we got their attention with a clearing of the throat sound and a, "sumimasen!" They staff was more than willing to assist us. Though most of the staff we encounter spoke very little English. But they can understand enough and are willing to help. Overall, a very comfortable stay for what we paid for.

Small cozy Japanese ryokan

Clean Rooms. Friendly staff. Located in a quiet area among the residential area
Staff is pleasant. The location is a little away from the nearest subway station. There should have more bicycles for rental for hotel guests.

Centrally located, but bathrm needs improvment

Hotel is centrally located in the city and easily acessible to tourists points, big room with japanesse style beddings, however, the bathroom is a bit outdated
