    Excellent Ryokan at reasonable prices!”

    Loved our stay at Ryokan Genhouin. Our room (with private bathroom/shower) was very comfortable, clean, and had a beautiful garden view. The staff was very friendly and accommodated our vegetarian diet with a delicious non-meat, non-seafood breakfast each morning. We also enjoyed the steam bath/sauna on premises. Highly recommend to anyone visiting Kyoto and don't want to spend $$$$ on other similar high-end ryokans.

    Great Ryokan Experience”

    It was our first time staying at a Ryokan, and it happened to be the best one so far! Before we arrived at Ryokan Genhouin I was already anticipating the the famous Ryokan Hospitality, and we were not disappointed. The staff were incredibly friendly and even guided us around the place showing us the facilities that are available. The facilities and rooms were clean and well maintained, the garden is really beautiful. All in all it was an amazing experience and place to stay the night!

    Bliss”

    One of my favorite ryokans i've stayed in. We had the executive garden suite (according to agoda) and it was so beautiful. The staff were wonderful and i hope to see them again! We got to hang out with their art collector Papillion and resident artist Rakusho and they were very generous and fun. No onsens on site, but there are two reservable private wooden baths shared among only 4 or 5 guestrooms, and the gardens are gorgeous. Would love to stay again.

    Beautiful ryokan and excellent service!”

    The ryokan is very clean and beautiful, and the service we received was excellent. While the ryokan is fairly central, we noticed that taxis tended to have a very difficult time finding the location.
