    Our stay at Hanakiya was very enjoyable. Our rooms were very clean . The shared bathroom and shower were spotless. It was like staying with family. ( the ones you like) . Eimi and Hiro, the hostess and host were charming and very helpful. Each evening Eimi would help me with suggestions for itineraries for the next day with instructions for correct bus or subway connections and on which side of the street to get the bus. I have no complaints !

    Quaint”
    The innkeeper and proprietor Miss Eimi was energetic and friendly. The location is perfect because it is close to the beautiful Kizumiya Temple which is also packed with a lot of shops, souvenirs, and food. My only complaint would be the soundproofing of the rooms. We spoke softly to avoid disturbing the other guests. Aside from this, the common bathroom and toilet is understandable because of the Inn setup. They were well maintained and odor free. The place is really affordable, definitely worth it. Hoping to come back soon.

    Superb location to kiyomizu Temple”
    location, clean and friendly
    Arrived early with a taxi from kyoto train station which cost $15USD. Or you can take a Raku bus no. 100 from Kyoto station for less than 3USD one way, bus will stop at the area called Gojozaka. Location is great as its the same road towards kiyomizu temple which means its a walking distance to the temple. Host speaks good english and is very friendly and understanding. You can easily catch a bus at the main street to Gion area etc. Outside hanakiya inn, is a small japanese house cafe, i love ambience and the matcha shake there. Remember to have matcha shake when you go there and you will get 100yen off the bill if you are staying in hanakiya inn.

    Hostess With The Mostess”
    The Host, The Location, The Style
    The hotel is a traditional Japanese place, meaning sleeping on the floor on comfortable tatami mats. The host is super friendly, helpful and a joy to be around. She was curious always asking questions and was very pleasant. I would say she is the main selling point for the hotel. The location is GREAT since it is close to the main temple and close to an express bus to Kyoto Station. To top it all off, it is affordable considering what is around. Next time I am in Kyoto, we will spend all our time here, if there is space.

    Good location, friendly owner and traditional Japanese style hotel
    When we arrived at Hanakiya Ryokan, we were greeted by the friendly owner . We wanted to try a Japanese style hotel instead of the usual and this was it for us. Location was superb as it was only a couple of minutes walk to Kiyomizudera. There was a common area where tea, coffee, water were provided. 2 toilets were available however, there was only 1 shower. Means, you would have to take turns to bath. Apart from that, definitely recommended.

    We have a good time staying there for 5 days. Very good location and we have just 5 mins walk to the bus stop. Just 10mins ride to Gion and hotel staff gave good instruction of how to get to the hotel from Kyoto station. Staff can speak English and she is very helpful. Will definitely stay there again.

    Very comfortable place to stay, the family is very nice and checks in on you, offers help with the area, etc. I stayed for a bit over a week, and it was a great home base to explore Kyoto and surrounding areas from (I noticed most people while I was there staying only a night or two while checking out Gion, but it's definitely a great place for a longer stay!) Easy access to Kyoto station & bus routes to many interesting temples and tourist areas, as well as having many interesting places to explore in walking distance. Highly recommended!

    Place was really nice, but it missed small living-room, where to talk with other backpackers. Location was okay, but worst holiday time, it was hard to walk to bus stop, if other tourist were going to Kiyomizu temple. I really liked staff in this hostel, they were really friendly and helpful!

    Hanakiya Inn is near the famous Kiyomizu-dera Temple. You just have to walk for about 15 minutes to reach the area. While going up, you can enjoy eating at food stalls - takoyaki and matcha ice cream. The inn is also near the bus stop and the taxi stop. There are also conveninece stores like Lawson, which is just a few steps away. Hanakiya Inn is clean. Eimi-san is also good in explaining the map in English. She was so warm and entertaining when we stayed in Kyoto. Arigatou!

    Our favourite ryokan in Japan”
    Hanakiya kyoto This ryokan nabs top slot as favourite of our whole trip. The owner (Emi-San) greeted us with a huge smile and proceeded to point out all the best places plus the best hanami (cherry blossom viewing). Following her instructions we went to gyomizukazadera which was amazing. And when we came back she had left fresh strawberries for us. Really nice touch. The good: lots of light, very quiet and all the major fixtures seem new or refurbished. Not sure what some of the negative reviews are talking about here as we found everything clean and tidy. All the essentials are free: towels, yukata, shampoo/conditioner. The bad: nothing really. If this is your first ryokan experience, it's nothing like a western hotel, with shared bathroom/shower/sink and smallish spaces. But location and ownership make up for it. Highly recommend, 5 stars.

    Emie-san was great, prompt communication, extremely helpful and nice, and dropped off gifts. Hanakiya Inn's location is excellent, right by Kiyomizudera temple and close to Gion and East Kyoto sights. Its about a 5min walk to the bus stop to major sightseeing areas. The inn itself is basic, your room, shared bathroom/shower/sink, shared living area with complimentary tea and coffee. Shared areas were clean, well-stocked, no-issues. Rooms reminded me of air-bnb type settings, with Emie-san easily reached upstairs. Not as well-kept or impeccable as a hotel but no major concerns. Homey.

    Second time visitors -- will return again someday”
    We last stayed at the Hanakiya Inn with Eimi and her family 7 years ago. We had a wonderful time then, so when we next returned to Kyoto, we made a return visit. Our stay was just as great this time (though sadly a bit shorter). In addition to the great hospitality, the inn is well-located -- near many tourist sites and restaurants. We hope to return to Japan in much less than 7 years next time -- and when we visit Kyoto again, we will return to Hanakiya Inn.

    It is a hostel renovated from a tradition Japanese house, and run by a very nice couple. I love its functional bathroom having dry area and very warm when bathing in winter. Bedrooms are Japanese, no bed, only futon, but very comfortable. Very close to Kiyomizu-dera and there are many food choices around.
