The service is impeccable. They have a good attention to detail. Food is amazing. One slight discomfort is that the toilets/bath area is not heated. made it a little uncomfortable when the weather is cold. Otherwise, great place and would return if I can.

Main Building Japanese-style Room (12 tatami + 5 tatami) [Non Smoking] [Half Board] [Sleeps 4]
Stayed 2 nights in December 2018
Great food and attentive service. But needs to improve on the cleanliness ”
For the price paid, certainly expect greater attention to cleanliness and upkeep of the rooms. Found a cockroach in our room and managed to catch it and showed the staff. However, she seems nonchalant about it. The staff could also take initiatives to recommend some tourist attractions and geisha show. On a positive note, serves the best wagyu beef and rice was cooked to perfection.

Excellent ryokan in great location”
Second time to Gion Hatanaka and unsurprisingly had an amazing stay as expected. Futon was comfortable. The meals were decent (without being exceptional) and very filling. The public bath was not huge but reasonable. Service as always was exemplary. Cost may appear high but if you take into account the half-board (2 meals) and superb location then it's actually pretty good value for money.

Room and service was outstanding! We had a lovely time and our hostess was so gracious and efficient. The Japanese breakfast was beautiful and delicious. We throughly enjoyed our stay and so happy we experienced a ryokan and staying at Gion Hatanaka after reviewing many different options. We were a family of 3 and the room was spacious and very comfortable. The onsen (public bath) facilities were lovely and empty when we tried it so essentially a private bath. The only note to travellers is the room is not suited for relaxing/lounging around for extended parts of the day, like a typical Western hotel room, because the beds are not setup until the evening. As long as visitors have this expectation and plan to be out exploring Kyoto during the day there will be no issues.

A warm welcome in Kyoto”
A traditional experience with all the trimmings amidst the amazing sights of Kyoto. The meals are large, well-served, and challenging. The ryokan is so quiet that we felt like we were the only guests. Plenty of room to spread out in our deluxe quarters.

The location is reallly good. Next to 八坂神社 at Gion. Staffs are all nice and helpful. Good food. But a little old and quite small room. The public bath is definitely just hot water, not hot spring, please note. All good. I give 4.5 out of 5.0 for the price and service and location

A traditional "home" away from home.”
The moment we walked in we were greated by very friendly staff who told us everything we needd to know and even carried our heavy suitcases up 2 flights of stairs. The room was spacious and the matcha bowl and sweets were delicious. Delicate touches such as incense were really special. The room vame with a private bath and toilet! There were yukata and free amenties for the sento (public bath). We enjoyed a luxurious dinner with the maiko show, another great activity to enjoy (seperate charge). The public bath was my favourite, getting up early to go while no one else is around is a really relaxing experience. This place is honestly a lovely ryokan to stay in and i reccomend trying it even just for one night.

First time staying at a ryokan and loved our one-night experience at Gion Hatanaka. Staff and facilities were both excellent, as was the in-room dining experience. Attention to presentation was extraordinary. Great location for exploring the Gion district of Kyoto. Worth the splurge for one night.

An incredible experience. Gion Hatanaka is wonderfully located and we had an amazing time. Sadly we were unable to book seats for their show - it was full. We did leave our booking until the last minute (two weeks before) and it was Cherry Blossom season. However, I'm unsure if priority is given to hotel guests.

Amazing experience!”
We landed in Tokyo and took a bullet train directly to Kyoto. We were exhausted when we got to Gion - the staff was so accommodating and waited so we could have our dinner. The experience in Gion is what made our trip to Kyoto so special! Our 8 year old son already wants to come back next summer! Everything from great food, our room and all the wonderful Japanese traditions you'll find at Gion. Thank you so much Gion for being so wonderful and kind to our family - we will definitely come back! Maybe next time with our extended family too! 😊

Other than the price (expensive) I would have loved to stay here for a few days. Everything about this place is nice and well run. The staff are wonderful and the food is a unique experience that I'm happy I had. The quality, variety and service of the meals was excellent. The ryokan is very located in the Gion district. Easy to walk. If you want this type of experience, because it is different from a traditional hotel, you will be very pleased. You get what you pay for.

Amazing Ryokan experience in the heart of traditional Kyoto”
I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend and his friend who we were travelling with. From the moment we arrived, we were fully taken care of. I've never stayed at a Japanese ryokan before, so I did my research. This place lived up to all my expectations. The surrounding area was beautiful and within walking distance of a dozen main attractions. It's a bit harder to get to other places from there, so focus your sightseeing in Gion and you'll have a very pleasant and relaxing pace. The kaiseki dinner is not for picky eaters. They did not have an English translations for the set menu, so you have to be willing to try things without knowing what they are even remotely. The staff tries their best to explain but some food just doesn't translate. I highly recommend staying more than 1 night for the full experience. An overnight stay isn't quite enough to fully enjoy the bath. The bath works wonders on travel weary legs though.

Couldn't give it 5 on value as it was pricy but it was an experience I will always remember and a highlight of our trip. The location is perfect for seeing the Gion area. We had dinner in our room and although we didn't like everything on the menu it was all prepared beautifully and the service was exceptional.
