    This was a very pleasant place to stay. It is pricy for accommodations but when you get the dinner and breakfast with it (and it's made for you course by course) it's worth it.

        Ryokan with Kyokaiseki experience ”
        Kyo Kaiseki by the chef and owner is superb! We reserved earlier for a counter seating for 4pax. The chef spoke about the food and his family history of the ryokan in Japanese translated to English by one of his staff. Fish roe in the starter was sublime! The monk fish was delicious too. There was a long list of food but these two items standout in my mind. The ryokan is very comfortable and intimate even though it is in the city area. You will be taken to a traditional setting with new amenities once you enter the ryokan. Don’t worry about outside setting. We stay in a Zui room. 4 mattress on tatami not futon with a small table sitting area for four. The WC attached was very convenient. We used the shared family bathroom with ofuro outside the room for bathing. There were also two single bathrooms. The bigger one had a really great view of the garden from the ofuro. We also changed into the yukata provided by the Ryokan for dinner wear. Gave us the authentic feel. Arrange for at least one whole day dedicated to enjoying and relaxing in the Ryokan. Also order the Kaiseki dinner as part of the whole traditional experience of ryokan stay. The breakfast we ordered was the Japanese option. It was served in the living eating area on first floor opposite our room. We had the option to have breakfast at the counter area too. Our room type did not have the option of serving breakfast in the room which we preferred. You can check with the ryokan about that option. We wish the chef/owner and family to continue this ryokan for many more generations!

        This was a fun "traditional" experience. Don't come looking for a modern place - this is intentionally rustic, albeit well maintained. I believe they have added things like WiFi, etc, to keep up with the usual needs of travelers. The dinner experience was excellent, including the onsen. Location is pretty good too - not that far a walk from Kyoto station. Neighborhood is pretty quiet as well, and not too far from various attractions. Would recommend for someone looking for the "traditional" experience.

Shared bathroom is clean and always available when we need it. Highlight is dinner with the chef owner. Truly delicious food and a very pleasant experience especially when you sit at the chef counter.

        Impeccable service making stay a pleasant and memorable one”
        Izuyasu is the first ryokan I have been to and it has set high standards for the next ryokan I’m going to visit. From the first day to the last day, the stay was comfortable and exceeding my expectations. Staff was friendly, helpful and really observant to details. Service we have received was one that I will never forget. Location was superb as well as it takes about 10 mins walk from Kyoto station if exiting from JR central exit. Would definitely recommend it to someone who wants to experience staying in a ryokan but do not want to break your bank for it. I am looking forward to returning back for a stay.

        Nice cozy ryokan at good location”
        It is walkable distance from Kyoto Station. Attentive staff and it was amazing to know that the current owner is the 7th generation in his family to continue running the Ryokan. The traditional dinner was good too, though we didn’t know it could not be served at our room but at the dining hall counter seat. But it’s ok too since we get to see the chef’s work put into our food. The onsen rooms, though only 3 for the whole place, were very nice. During our stay, we did not have to queue for it. I think it is a good experience overall to have a feel of staying in the traditional accommodation while not needing to break the bank for it.

        It’s the REAL Japanese ryokan experience”
        I am a Japanese who emigrated to the US in 1986, so I know what to expect from hotels/inns at various price points. A quality traditional ryokan (Japanese inn) tends to be pricey regardless of location. Izuyasu is in Kyoto, and if one wishes to experience the real thing in Kyoto, it doesn’t come at a bargain price. Visitors need to keep that in mind when deciding where to stay in Kyoto. Izuyasu is run by a 7th generation owner and his family and they have kept the business going for 180 years. In my opinion, the food is real, service impeccable and amenities are as good as it gets in a 180 year old inn. I stayed at Izuyasu with a 14 year old and everything was PERFECT. If you are looking for a bargain, there are plenty of cheaper hotels and even more inexpensive hostels. But if you want the REAL Kyoto experience, don’t hesitate to book at Izuyasu.

The bed is really comfy, the place is as cute as it gets, the baths are super relaxing and the breakfast is just out of this world. This isn't just a place to stay but more like a resort to enjoy for the evening and night. Also, there's a curfew at 11pm.

        Modern + Traditional”
        I would say the theme of this ryokan is the blend of tradition and modernisation. While it is an old building, the inside has been renovated so that it looks new and stylish. Yet it retains features like the shared bathrooms (which you can use privately), and the traditional tatami flooring in the rooms. Even the meals there reflect a fusion of Western techniques with traditional Japanese serving style and ingredients. The meals are also prepared by the owner of the ryokan, which is a nice touch of hospitality. Would definitely recommend staying here as a slightly more affordable ryokan experience.

        Helpful staff but a bit overpriced”
        Normally ryokan will include breakfast and dinner but IZUYASU only offer breakfast. Have to top up another 7,000 yen (approx USD70) for dinner. So was a little disappointed when I found out there's no dinner included in my expensive booking of the room. Location is about 1.5km from the Kyoto station, so walking there with a luggage might be a problem for some. Otherwise, the staff there were helpful and speaks English.

        Good to experience living in a traditional Japanese house. The food is delicious too. Location not near to train station, about 10mins walk. Bed is so good to sleep in. I stayed there during winter and the blanket is really warm. However, there is no heater in the room, only a warm air from the air con unit so it can be very cold at night during winter.
