Fantastic location, great staff service”
The rooms were huge by Japan standards, and very well located. A short stroll to the bridge and all other attractions. We enjoyed the great service by the hotel staff as well. They could not speak English but tried their very best with translation apps to communicate with us. We tried also their breakfast bento - nothing too special if you have already been in Japan for awhile, but for newcomers this can be quite interesting.
The hotel is located at a very nice location to explore around Arashiyama. The room was lovely, not only comfortable but it has a relaxing river view. The breakfast is not cooked by the hotel, yet it is still very nicely prepared and with different style everyday. Also, the staff are all very helpful. Highly recommended this hotel.
We are an extended family of 13 pax with older kids and elderly parents. Highly recommended, the location is excellent and walking distance to most places of interest in Arashiyama. The rooms are clean and the river view rooms has an amazing view. They have a nice spacious hot bath with a outdoor bath which we used them twice daily. Special mention on the outstanding services from the staff. Although the ladies couldn't speak English, they provide their warmest service with their heart which we are very appreciative of. They helped us with the many reservations we needed for our tour bookings and restaurant reservations. Best service. Thank you, we will definitely stay here again.
We stayed at the suite of 50 mrXmr. Room was big and comfortable with a great view. The breakfast is nice and special. The staff (one person) has very poor english. It is very hard to comunicate and ask for any help other than cleaning the room. You have to take your shoes off at the hotel entrance. No elevator, I had to carry the luggage by myself up the stairs.
Everything was so great here. Highly recommend this hotel! It’s tucked in a quiet neighbourhood near Togetsu-bridge in Arashiyama, so it is close to the bamboo forest. The view was amazing. Staffs were great and very very helpful. This hotel come with own hot spa too.
English communication is not possible”
Stayed first floor and experienced noise when vacuuming even people talking at the robby area. Staff were friendly but no one could speak English. Public bath were clean and good, but breakfast(Japanese meal box) menu were same for even 10 days!
The place was clean and the view from the balcony was beautiful! the ladies even helped with our luggage on the first day! there was also a shared bath area on the first floor if anyone was interested in that experience!
Pros: 1. Walking distance from Arashiyama station 2. Nice environment, views and comfortable room 3. Friendly staffs 4. Close to the Bamboo Forest and able to go there very early in the morning to avoid crowd
Spacious Room In quiet area”
Everything is fine with comfortable beddings, the only problem was nobody in the accounting desk before 10 am (check out time).During so, the schedule of visiting Arshi-Yama would be difficult to be early bird visitors.
Very great accommodation in Arashiyama”
We visited Kyoto during fall foliage and this accommodation makes my trip in Japan memorable. The room itself is so big, very cosy, and clean. Staffs are very helpful and friendly. Also, view from our room is so good. We can see river and beautiful mountains from our balcony. The only disadvantage of this accommodation is location. It is far from public transports ( JR station). The accommodation also has a bus, but it was out of order, so they could not pick us up at and send us to the train station.
Thank you very much for your stay and your comment.Also,we are sorry for the shuttle bus which was out of order. We improve our property and service for all our guests day by day. We look forward to see you again.
Excellent Location & Service”
The room is out of expected large with living room and bedroom separately. Very comfortable and spacious room. The hotel location is just near the bridge so that there is a river view for the room. The hotel is close to several hotels with daily rental onsen, so if you don't like small onsen at the hotel, you may go to other onsen hostel/ hotel for only 15 mins. This hotel is good for family group with children.
Thank you very much for your stay and your wonderful comment. We improve our property in the hotel and our service day by day. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you,
Very large room with nice view”
The hotel is definitely value for money. The room is very large and the ambience is really the traditional Japanese. We checked in late about 10 pm and the staff still welcome us. I really recommend if you want to experience the traditional Japanese custom. The room also very large, is very difference with other hotel in Japan. If you want to spend whole day in the hotel, I would recommend it. However the nearest transport is by using bus no. 28 from Kyoto station. If you use the train, it would be quite far from Saga Arashiyama station. There are several point of interest nearby. Some temple, monkey forest, or even the Togetsu Bridge itself is having nice view. Overall, it is the best hotel during our 7 days stay in Japan.
Dear Reza, thank you for your feedback, we hope to see you again
One night was simply not enough”
For the price and the location, this place was a steal! You'd better book this fast before it gets popular and the prices sky rocket! The rooms available on Agoda were for the suite-style rooms. Apparently there are normal rooms there, but not posted on Agoda for booking. The suite style rooms were out of the world, considering the prices of ryokan in the area. The hotel itself did not have much in terms of facilities, but the room made up for itself! Service at the accomodation was good, though they did not know much english. Staff were friendly and smiling and went out of their way to show superb Japanese hospitality... Definitely one of the best finds for my Japan trip!
Thank you so much for your king review, we hope to see you again!
Beautiful hotel in a great location, with a very attentive and kind staff.”
I had some difficulty with the website, and ended up making a mistake with my reservation. The staff was very helpful and rectified the situation. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I was able to see the bamboo grove in Arashiyama, and had made a reservation well in advance to go to Saihoji (Kokedera). The area is beautiful. I would definitely recommend staying at Japaning Hotel LiV Ranroukaku, and hope I'll be able to stay there again in the future.
The location is very close to Arashiyama Street. Its around 1km walking distance from Saga Arashiyama station. If you reach Saga Arashiyama late night, recommend to take taxi. There is bus that able to go Arashiyama from Kyoto Station, we took that from Arashiyama street to Kyoto Station. The Good part is the location and the room is spacious. The not so satisfy part is the bed is hard and the aircond noise is quite strong, and the ceiling is with some black stain. The onsen is same with bath water from the hotel room bathroon, nothing too wow to shout about. For the price of the stay, its still consider a good deal and satisfactory stay.
Comfortable Place For Relaxation”
Walking distant to all the tourist places as we can save our travelling time and relax in this hotel. Nice breakfast were served and the staff were very helpful. One thing bad in Kyoto is you must have early lunch so that when comes to 5 pm you can have your dinner earlier because most of the restaurants will be closed after 6 pm. We will choose this hotel if we happen to visit this place again.
Everything was great about this hotel. Can’t even think of anything negative. The staff were amazing, so kind, helpful and respectful. The rooms were huge and the location was just excellent. Truly a gem! Highly recommended!
big room size, close to 嵐山(阪急）station”
