Authentic Japanese Ryokan but no...”

Beautiful Japanese garden and super clean. The owner was very kind and thoughtful.
I wasn’t looking at small details but I did not like the fact there is no bathroom or toilet in the room which was quite inconvenient for me and can’t relax much in the room.

The Ryokan that is unfortunately not a real Ryokan”

The pavillon we stayed in was really nice, in a traditional wooden structure with panels, in the middle of a garden, and quite spacious. A real pity, the service was more or less absent...
The key issue is that it sells itself as a Ryokan. However it does not feature any of the service (and quality of service) you would generally expect from a Ryokan. There are no breakfasts, no dinners served. The staff itself is nice but very passive. Even the cleaning of the room is not that great with cups for instance that were left uncleaned. And overall, it seems there is an issue with the management of this place, not being at the usual &quot;Japanese high standard&quot;. At this price level, it is disappointing even though it pushed us to spend even more time outside enjoying Kyoto...

Disappointing”

We were disappointed with our stay. The property advertised the availability of meals yet when we got there, they said no meals were available. We asked about where we could go and eat. We were given directions to a place that we couldn&#39;t find (and normally our ability to follow street directions are good). We stayed at several places in Japan during our 3 week sojourn. All the other places we stayed at provided authentically excellent service. This place went through the motions but....... Overpriced for what we got.

Simply Amazing!”

Exceptional Experience!! If you want to experience the authentic Japanese life-style, I highly recommend this property. It is exquisite! The breakfast is mind-blowing! The property is not only aesthetically pleasing but also spotless clean. The service is phenomenal. Just one of the best places I&#39;ve stayed.
Not having conventional furniture in the room can get tricky, as well as not having a bathroom in your room. But for the sake of experiencing a genuine traditional ryokan - totally worth it!

Spectacular Ryōkan near Philosophers Walk”

Spectacular Ryōkan down the road from the beautiful Heian Shrine. Rooms were perfectly situated around a tranquil Japanese garden. Breakfast was wonderful Japanese style and the facilities included private soaking tub along with a traditional Japanese bath. Could not recommend Genhouin more!

Unique experience but pricey for the actual lodging.”

Unique travel and lodging experience
As a westerner, the process for arrival and in particular the proper etiquette for shoes was confusing. The onus on knowing lies with the guest, as it couldn&#39;t be explained with the ltd. English. The shoe procedure (wooden shoes for stone flooring but shoes too small) was quite a hassle in terms of walking on stones with provided shoes that didn&#39;t fit. Would be risky for elderly.
