    I have expected more than that”
    The hotel is far away from the city, and that's what I was looking for as I was driving. Ample free parking space just at the premise. I supposed tax has been included in the booking, but the staff asked for JPY400/person tax or surcharge once I have arrived which made me feel unfriendly. The premise is a bit old, though things are clean and well furnished. the AC is not strong enough so it's very cold at the bathroom and corridor. There's no pathway leading the room to the restaurant...so you have to walk out of the premise. The settings is very Japanese style, like those you saw on Japanese TV drama. Nice yukata is available in room. Earning the name of kaiseki dinner, I expected it's of highest quality. But I just found I have expected too much...the worst was shabushabu...merely pieces of pork boiled in tasteless water.

    Beautiful ryokan on outskirts of Kyoto ”
    We enjoyed a lovely 6 night stay in the Yamasaki ryokan. The room is typical of ryokan style with tatami mats, thick warm quilts and comfortable furnishing. The staff are friendly, welcoming and helpful and the food was excellent throughout our stay. The best sushi we foodies have ever had. We would highly recommend a stay at the ryokan.

    Awesome annex with a few minor hiccups...”
    The Ryokan was a charming little complex with momiji gardens surrounding us as we came in the Fall. However, upon our arrival we were shown the wrong room as our reservation stated that we booked a Large room with Garden view. The staff were persistent in telling us that the room which didnt not have a garden view was the same room as per our reservation. After showing the staff our reservation emails and the room type and photos on Agoda clearly stating that our room was to have a Garden view, we eventually were shown to the right room after a bit of complaining. Furthermore, as we booked breakfast for the next morning we were aware of the differences of prices for the Western and Japanese breakfasts. Although, we were informed via telephone that the price of both breakfasts were the same, to which we became surprised in the following morning as we were told by staff in the restaurant that the information was false.

    Isolated location. This ryokan is located among the residential neighbourhood and visits to tourist attraction only possible by taxi . No facilities available except a restaurant. Luckily there was Lawson convenient store about 10 mins by walk to pickup drinks and snacks. Otherwise you will be couped up in the room with only a small mini tv

    friendly staff, cozy rooms, surroundings
    It was a couple of months ago when I stayed at the Ryokan Yamazaki with my husband and parents. We had a car rented so it wasnt a big deal but I can not say the hotel is conveniently located. The host guy, however, was very friendly and helpful and what's surprising is that he spoke English more fluently than anyone else I met in Japan. The rooms were cozy with a view and the bathroom had a mini bathrub which was quite relaxing. The breaky was a bit disappointing, I should say.

    it was a great stay for us in Kyoto. The overall hotel concept is good and friendly. Clean rooms. Except they allow people to smoke at the common area where the rooms are. But i guess this is acceptable in Japan. Wont mind staying there again. just need to orientate your way and the bus to this hotel which is not in the city.

    We stayed at this countryside hotel because we went to Arashiyama for the famous river cruise the next day. The taxi fare from hotel to Arashiyama was just 1500 Yen (US$15). The hotel is actually a home-run Japanese inn and the sfaff are very helpful. The main chef speaks surprisingly good English. In short, it was a pleasant and wonderful stay.

    we had to walk up the stairs with our luggages to our room. There was a separate bathroom when we opened the door, which smelled. The room was old. the water dispenser in the common room was empty. I thought there was onsen. The western breakfast we had was scrambled egg, 2 toasts and a pot of Japanese tea. the staffs were friendly.
