Decent Ryokan, not much else”
Location is in an alley. Not much things to do beside sleep there. We don't do the kaiseki. Small bathroom, there is communal bath. A very basic hotel.

Lovely Japanese Style Hotel”
Public bath, room service and great service from the staffs
The traditional Japanese style room left a great impression to us and the staffs are all very polite. When requested, they were very kind to show us the sightseeing route around Kyoto and with full information regarding the transport and location. Daily necessities such as tooth brush and toothpaste, towel and shampoo etc are all provided. Every day they will refill those used items and clean the room when we were out. So we have a nice and clean room everyday when we went back to the hotel. In short, it was a fantastic and enjoyable Japanese Style Hotel.

Great services with smile”
Good customer services, clean environment, has a public bath
When we arrived at the hotel, the staffs greet us with smiles. Then they guided us to our room and show us the surrounding of the hotel. The second night when we returned to hotel, we are pleased to see that all our rooms had been cleaned. They changed the futons and put everything in the room back to their original position. In addition, there is a public bath available to use. It was an interesting experience. In short, we are happy and feel comfortable staying in Gion Ryokan Karaku Hotel.

Super convenient location ”
English speaking, location, Japanese public bath
The hotel staff was super gracious and they did their best to accommodate us. The Japanese beds were very comfortable and the room size was larger that I expected. Love the large public bath, definitely give it a try. The convenient location is super wonderful, we were able to access all the lovely spots by Godai Ji and Kiyomizu with ease.

Nice and friendly staffs”
best location
The hotel is the right choice if you are going to visit Gion, Shijo Dori, Yasaka Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The room size is large compares with other hotel in the same area. The hotel is about 10mins away from the Gion Shijo station. So it is better to take the bus between the stations, attractions and the hotel.
