Great location, original flavor

Traditional Japanese tatami with garden view; walking distance from main attractions; welcoming staff
The location is great, walking distance from main attractions; hotel staff speak fairly great English and give a lot of local tips. The bathing room is comfortable for a winter stay.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Kodaji temple tea ritual and night visit

Traditional Japanese

This place is located really close to the some of the most famous temples in Kyoto as well as all the best places to eat drink and watch the geisha do there thing. The staff are really friendly and helful the room is awesome with its traditional Japanese breakfast, and having your own traditional Bath house was great at the end of the day

very cold room, could not sleep

location lonely
we expected a cozy place where you meet the owner and talk to her, she was nice but cannot speak english at all, so the contact was brief. also, the worst is sleeping on the floor with a small heather only . when the floor is freezing , it is hard not to miss a western type bed. also very sad to have an american breakfast... would not recommend

Budget Japanese Inn

Price, clean and convenient
I selected this hotel based on the budget but this Japanese inn was good enough for the price. Not extensive service but bath was good enough to recover.

Michael L. Families with older children Australia, July 20, 2012
Great place, a nice experience, fantastic service!

Authentic gardens and location. A memorable experience.
Great Ryokan, very friendly service! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had our own private toilet which was fantastic. Location was both private and central. About 5 minutes walk to the shopping/touristy area. Would definitely recommend if you're interested in Japanese culture and open to new experiences. If you're looking for the whole Hilton/four seasons experience then look there. Simple accommodation and amenities but that's the appeal and charm of the place. Thoroughly enjoyed my bath but wish it was an open air. Tried the Kensai? meal. Was a nice experience.
Hotel Feature Tip: Make sure you print out the directions/map for Taxi for Ryokan Montanago. There are so many ryokans in Kyoto that it's very difficult for every Taxi driver to know all their locations.

Excellant location, staff are wonderful

Location, location, location
My wife and I had a huge area to ourselves, 10 mat and 8 mat tatami ajoining rooms. The staff a very helpful. The ryokan is central to temple and shrine area as well a host of eateries. Facilities are clean and well maintained. All bath/shower and toilets are shared, though you can work around that. Kyoto is a lovely place to visit, even during peak holiday season.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: You can get temple and shrined out after a while. for something different google the times for local flea markets, there are a number of them going on at various times of the month - thoughthe tourist information centre knew nothing about them, so chase them up yourself. Never know what you'll find.
