            The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating. I ordered breakfast for one morning and it was fantastic. The room was surprisingly spacious, plenty of space to stash my stuff. I had a lovely garden view and the Japanese futon experience was lovely. The location was just a short walk from bus stops, the train station, and a Lawson...so you have everything you need!

            The ryokan was really lovely! We had a lovely stay, friendly staff, good facilities and location was quite convenient. The breakfast in the morning was amazing and the room was really quaint and traditional. Would definitely recommend to book a ryokan over a hotel if you're ever in Kyoto.

            I don't normally leave reviews for accommodation, but I loved my stay here. The staff are incredibly warm and welcoming, the place is spotless, and it's only a 10 minute walk from Kyoto station with a selection of great restaurants just down the street. I stayed in the Japanese style room with a garden - which was lovely to wake up to and sit out in with some green tea in the morning. The ryokan even holds classes during an evening - you get a real introduction into Japanese culture staying here, it was fantastic!

            Budget ryokan”
            As two relatively tall westerners, this ryokan provided us with little comfort. We weren’t comfortable most of the time as we had to either stand or lie down. I have stayed in other ryokans, so was a little disappointed in what this ryokan offered. We also often hit our heads as we had a step up to the bathroom at the same time as we had to duck under the doorway height. In summary, it was the height of the ceiling & size of the room that disappointed the most.

            This is a great Ryokan, but what really sets this place apart from other nice places is the wonderful staff. They speak excellent English and are extremely helpful for planning your excursions around Kyoto. The rooms are a decent size for Japan and extremely clean. Great location - only about a 10 min walk from Kyoto station (5 min cab ride) with plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. They also provide a list of restaurant recommendations - both ones we went to were great. They also have a washer and dryer you can use for 500 yen a load. It includes the detergent too. Definitely would stay here again if we come back to Kyoto.

            We stayed for 2 nights in Kyoto and chose this Ryokan because wanted a more traditional feel to our stay in this city. The hotel is very nice, its staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I think the location is very nice because it is quite but you are walking distance from the station and very close to a number of bus lines that will take you all over. The bathroom was extremely small but it did the trick. Loved the yukatas. Would go back.

            Oce you get past the only negative aspect of this hotel (the distance from Kyoto Station), it's so easy to fall in love with this place. The staff are so warm and sweet, taking care of your every need despite not being a major hotel. The rooms (we stayed in a tea-ceremony style room) are simple, spacious and well-designed. Me and the wife enjoyed the tatami mats, as well as the futons. This ryokan is highly recommended!

The staff can speak perfect English (coz one if them is from the States, ;) and even the Japanese staff can speak English. They are alll very helpful. I shall definitely stay there again!

            Comfy, clean, compact room
            First time staying at a ryokan style hotel with tatami. We have to make our own beds and the room was compact but still very clean and comfortable. Bathroom was tiny but has everything you need. Some staff were more helpful than others, nonetheless, good service. Came in exhausted from an overnight flight during peak season and were allowed to check in slightly earlier than scheduled which was greatly appreciated. About 15 min from Kyoto station or 3 min walk from no 9 bus (to Kyoto station).

            The ryokan is approx 15 - 20min walk from the kyoto station. Staff was friendly to share on attractions and surrounding food places. A few buses does go to a temple near the ryokan, can ask the tourist center for more info. worth it esp if you are on a 1 or 2 day bus pass. A 3-storey building, rooms are clean, and looks relatively new. price is a little high for its location, but probably because Kyoto is mainly a tourist area, and hotels are more ex.

            Amiable service, very clean and new rooms, elevator, nice breakfast
            This ryokan is a little bit far from the nearest station (Kyoto Station) if you are dragging your luggage along, but it is close to sightseeing destinations. Grab a cab if you have to, it won't cost more than. We were very happy with the cleanliness of the rooms. The ryokan felt really new and has a lift, which is great if you have bulky luggage. We stayed in a Japanese tatami room and laid out our own futons every night. The toilets are a little small but it's pretty ok if you're just taking a shower. The staff range from cordial to amiable, depending on who's on duty. There was an elderly gentleman on night duty who spoke excellent English and was extremely helpful - regrettably, we did not get his name. Overall I would definitely consider staying here again if I'm looking for good value, mid-priced accommodation.
