            Hotel staff were very attentive and welcoming. Hotel a bit pricey but still worth it. Food at the meals were unique and very fulfilling. Would recommend the private onsen and also for couples looking for a romantic Japanese style getaway.

            Exceptional”
            Our stay at the Arashiyama Benkei Ryokan was by far the high point of our trip to Japan. We loved every moment of our stay - starting with the Japanese tea in our room, to the fabulous 11 course kaiseiki dinner, followed by a relaxing soak in the outdoor onsen under a clear night sky, and concluding with a delightful and extensive Japanese breakfast. The staff's service was impeccable throughout - our stay couldn't have been more perfect.

            Perfect location, very clean, excellent services, enjoyed the tranquility there. Food and Onsen are lower than my expectation, room is rather small. Overall it is a very traditional high quality hotel.

            The service and attention to detail was impeccable. The staff do everything in their ability to make your stay comfortable enjoyable and one you won't soon forget. The food was a true Japanese culinary experience. I loved staying here my only Con is that I had to leave.

            Ineresting Ryokan Experiance”
            Was my first stay in a ryokan, so I don't have a sourse to compare. But the ryokan was in a very beautiful loction by the river. Our room on second floor had view to the river, the room we had breakfast also had a picturesc view. The common bath was also nice. The dinner and breakfast and the service from the staff of exceptional class. All in all a very pleasant stay. Would love to stay again, if only the cost wasn't so expensive.

            Very comfortable and relaxing stay”
            This was our first time staying in a traditional ryokan, so we were unsure of what to expect. We had a very lovely time, and the staff were extremely welcoming and polite. They provided a very smooth check-in process and a tour of the room and amenities, before serving us an amazing kaiseki dinner! We are a gay (male) couple, so I'm happy to point out that we didn't feel like we were treated differently than anyone else. The baths were a little smaller than I imagined, but they were just as relaxing. They were actually pretty secluded during our stay, which was great. The outdoor one was my favorite---it felt very private, and it was great to bathe outdoors during a very light rain in the evening. I also liked that the baths stayed open until 12AM. Breakfast was provided in a bright room with a great view of the river, and everything was delicious. We loved the drawings provided with each meal. The hotel staff offered to hold our bags while we explored the neighborhood, which included a nearby park and bamboo forest. It was a wonderful area of Kyoto! I'd definitely visit and stay here again.

            For the price this wasn't worth it, onsen was so so, room were small but still comfortable, staff were friendly but facilities were lacking. There are better options out there
