      Ryokan experience”

      well, The stay was a nice experience. I will not do it for more than one night! It was very difficult to sleep on the floor. From the pictures I thought the futon will be a little thicker. It was cold in the room for us. I am glad we experienced it but I will not do it again.

      Good for location, but definitely a hostel feel.”

      Booked thinking it would be more of a traditional ryokan. It was more of a hostel. Staff was excellent though. I did pay about the same for other hotels in japan with private bathrooms, nice beds, and bigger rooms just to note. Biggest gripe is the value.

      Very helpful staff and great facilities”

      Our train from Nagoya to Takayama was cancelled (damaged track), we had to book the bus and couldn't speak Japanese. Haruka helped us book the bus, she went above and beyond her normal duties to call the bus company twice. She even printed out the information and map for us and texted me to inform me of the details. I am grateful to her helpfulness and highly recommend this ryokan.

      Frustrating experience”

      The most expensive stay during 14 day trip with the least value for money. Bread for breakfast moldy, towel dirty. Shared bathroom and toilet hardly clean. Same for the room: a hairpin of preceding guests indicates negligent cleaning, the tatami smelled. A receipt neither during checkin nor checkout was not given. Room Very loud for thin paper walls to other guest's rooms and loud street. We had such fantastic hotels during 14 day's trip in Tokio & Kyoto, especially in Kyoto's Gion neighborhood, but this one was just a big fail. However well placed close to JR station for trips to Osaka, Nara, Hiroshima, Miyajama etc. Would not recommend.

      Cozy traditional ryokan”

      We enjoyed our stay at Dozen Ryokan! Although the building is quite old, it was very comfortable and cozy. Every aspect of our stay was well taken care of. The ryokan prepares a simple but delicious breakfast every morning. Location is perfect as it is walking distance from Kyoto station, we can take the last train back and walk to the ryokan. Generally a comfortable stay.

      comfortable; clean; great location

      We were a group of 5, placed in one large but very comfortable room. The ryokan is just a very close walk from the station, the staff speak excellent English, the rooms, loo and showers are very clean, and there is a free water from the dispenser upstairs. Finally, the rice breakfast was divine! Definitely will be my choice for a budget accommodation in Kyōto.

      Lovely traditional ryokan”

      If i was not mistaken, the hotel is already 100 years old, however it is well maintained therefore the building is still remained on a good shape. The receptionist who checked me in was not as friendly as other hotels we had in japan, but other staffs were really lovely! - one person’s fault doesnt ruin your stay, right? Location is only 5 minutes walk from the main station, although you need to venture into an alley to find your accommodation. The ryokan provides very simple buffet breakfast, both japanese and western. Dont expect many selections!

      We wanted to try out a ryokan, we thoroughly enjoyed this been our first hotel of the trip, however I was looking forward to having a bed after 2 days. Cute rooms and very clean toilets and facilities! Conveniently located near the train and town Only criticism would be the breakfast, I was hoping for something more traditional and they just provide bread and preserves, yogurt and some rice. which did the job to start the day but not the Japanese experience I was hoping for. Staff were very helpful, making reservations for us and check in was a breeze!

      We loved Kyoto more than anything and are even rearranging the last part of our trip to return. Would recommend to anyone who wants the experience of a traditional Japanese bedroom. Small and quaint. Staff were very helpful and kind. Very very close walk to the station and great food. Short bike ride from downtown Kyoto.

      Not that bad but too expensive for overall.”

      - Staff can speak English very well. - Location is not that close to the Kyoto station, but not too far. around 10 - 15 minutes walk. - Get off the bus at Karasuma Nanajome is the closest bus stop (1 stop before Kyoto station.) - Nice breakfast with no charge. - Futon is too hard. Uncomfortable sleep. - The floor was shaking when somebody walked and you could hear everything from your next room.
