Very good 8.0
It was a nice ryokan(the first I've ever stayed in). For some reason I thought there would be more explanation of tradition and serving of food. My reservation said I would get breakfast. I did not get the traditional Japanese breakfast. Instead I just got some bread and coffee. You had to pay extra which I was unaware of.

Exceptional 10.0
Great place to experience a ryokan! Staff was super helpful with this family with 10 bags! Very clean, including the public bath. Location was super close to shopping district. Great way to experience Japan and Kyoto!
Lee, usFamily trip
Fair 4.0
Was very disappointed. This Inn has definitely seen better days, it felt very drab. It said it could fit six, but we were cramped at three people. The teeny seating area overlooking the maintenance shaft of the building opposite only afforded two seats. But the biggest disappointment was the location, it was only close to an alley like lane of shops and restaurants, which we loved, but far from all of the sites. It was a few blocks walk to the closest bus station, and a taxi ride to the nearest train. The breakfast was dismal, in an uninspired room, just really took the enjoyment out of Kyoto. The staff was very pleasant and helpful, but for all the other points I can’t recommend this Inn. There are much better Inns around Kyoto and Nara that far exceed this one.
