    Best ryokan”

    I rarely write review, but this ryokan is deserved to be known. This is the best ryokan that i have stayed so far. Attention to detail, great facility, and very kind and helpful staff. The view from river view suite was very astonishing and the kaiseki dinner was delightful . Will definitely come back again in the future.

    We had a wonderful stay here for one night. Don't get me wrong - it's expensive. But the staff could not have been kinder, the dinner and breakfast were both a wonderful experience, and the rooms felt as traditional as we could get. We loved this part of our trip to Japan!

    Unforgettable stay”

    We stayed just one night in the self-service western style room (which included a private onsen) as part of our honeymoon, and even during such a brief stay which skipped some of the ryokan's most distinctive features that other reviewers can comment on (such as the meals and attentive service), we had such a lovely time at the hotel. The private bath was super fun and relaxing...we ended up dipping in it 3 times in that one day. Also, the room was incredibly spacious, definitely bigger than what we expected and more than enough for 2 people. The location was very convenient. On the morning of check out we walked right next door to % arabica and had a nice cup of coffee overlooking the river. Definitely a splurge for us, but 100% worth it and a highlight of our trip to Japan

    Expensive but Excellent!”

    The location is very good, near site seeing locations and easy to find, but not too close to JR. The room is very traditional Japanese Style, staff are polite and one of them could speak Cantonese. Our package included dinner and breakfast. The dinner was good, served with a staff in your own room. The breakfast was excellent, the staff would guide you to a room and only 3 rooms guests would have breakfast at the same time. The room scene was super nice river view. You can select Japanese or Western style breakfast, both were good. You could have your own toaster if you chose Western! We enjoyed the public hot spring, indoor and outdoor both available. It was not crowded, we enjoyed the hot spring alone. Private hot spring is also available with extra fee. In the room you could dress up in Japanese pajamas. A small bag and hair band would be given.

    Fantastic Experience”

    Held up to the high standard of traditional japanese ryokan. In-house breakfast and dinner were superbly prepared that give us an authentic and rich feel of local flavour. Public Bath is also a pleasant experience as the ryokan is not crowded. Overall a great experience, but slightly costly though.

    A beautiful and comfortable facility in the perfect location to absorb the beauty of Kyoto nature. We stayed in a JR suite for a night while stopping through town and found everything about it thoughtful and comfortable. From the in suite hot tub to the delightful bed and Japanese pajamas, our stay was ideal and worth the cost.

    Beautiful historical stay”

    My fiancee and I had the privilege to spend one night in this beautiful Japanese inn, also known as a ryokan. The service was exceptional, and we were able to store our luggage before check in so that we had a chance to explore the area without the obstacle of carrying our luggage around. The building overlooks the river and mountains, giving our hotel room an indescribably memorable view. The private onsen is well worth its price. Everything you'd want to see in Arashiyama is within walking distance, including but not limited to: the bamboo grove and monkey park. I can't comment on their meals since we did not choose to eat at the inn. I can't recommend this place enough, especially if you want a memorable opportunity to stay in a traditional ryokan.

    Refind Japnese Beauty we are familiar to .”

    I visited this area many times ,but this was the 1st stay. I found the silent river soothing my feeling in front of the ryokan which sometimes turned raged and was in danger of flood. Early in the morning some people strolled alone others walked with their dog, and some birds siwmmimg on the river which reminded me of Ukai , u ,birds swallowing fish and being made to vomit and ushou, fisherman. The hills over the river would have attracted me if it were late fall. I enjoyed typical Japanese air and everyday life in Arashiyama.

    The location is perfect, right across the river and within walking distance of tourist spots, shopping and restaurant. Based from reviews, I was expecting red carpet treatment but I didn't get that from the welcoming committee, it felt stiff. I had more luck with the servers coming to our room for the warm welcome.

    We have wonderful time in Benki, the hot spring is nice, great breakfast and dinner with great service. just one confuse point, i.e. when I booked on agoda web page, it shows that our room is free for 0~4 kids, however, when I arrive the hotel, they still need to charge both kids, although one is only 3years old. one more thing, the facility is a bit old, need to refresh, e.g. the roof of private hotspring in the room, very old and I think i can see the spider net on the roof!

    Very comfortable stay in suite with private onsen, kitchen and washer/dryer”

    We (3) stayed in suite that was down an alley from the main building. Very clean and comfortable. Onsen and W/D were downstairs. Two bedrooms and kitchen were upstairs. (One bedroom opened into the kitchen, so not totally private.) We had just come from another hotel that served elaborate dinners and breakfasts, so being able to fix something quick and easy was a nice change. There are lots of places in the neighborhood where you can pick up food. Dinner at Benkei was served in the main dining room and good, but service less leisurely than at some other ryokans. This part of Kyoto is lovely. Not central city, but lots of nice walks and plenty to see, including beautiful, less famous shrines. It would have been nice to have been offered tea during check-in, as we had had a long travel day. However, all of the fixings were in our suite, so that made up for it. Staff was responsive to requests, such as to make the onsen a little warmer, and arranged to send our bags on to next hotel.

    We really enjoyed our stay at the ryokan. The staff was wonderful, the facilities were great and the food was outstanding. We were travelling with our 2 young children. Given the cost of stay with additional fees for the children, It would have been nice if the children were offered more than just rice for breakfast and dinner.
