Superb 9.0 From 81 reviews

Very good 8.0
Typical Japanese style "ryokan" located the center of Kyoto City. With the tea ceremony at the lobby, Japanese style breakfast and the public bath, we could enjoy the relaxed moments. The room is spacious and refurbished recently while some parts of the building inside are relatively worn.

The only black spot was the missing of a small fridge in the room.

Great service, but more like a motel than a Ryokan
We stayed here for one night during our time in Kyoto, because we wanted the Ryokan experience. Not having anything to compare to, other than hotels of a similar price range, here is what I can say: Pros: the service was excellent. Very friendly, super polite, totally attentive. The room itself was clean and we'll maintained, though some things were a little dated. Cons: any areas outside the room we're very run down. Scuffs and scratches on the walls, ragged carpet and dated decor made the public spaces feel a bit like a cheap motel. The breakfast was ok, again service was great, but the dining room was also in need of a face lift. Overall, it was more like staying in a room decorated like a traditional Japanese Ryokan, but in a building that was more like a motel from the 80's. For the the price we paid, I would expect much more.

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and reasonably priced for the location. It wasn't the full Ryokan experience we had anticipated as we received a Western style room, but it was a nice stay nonetheless and the staff made us feel very welcome.

You get to wear a cool bathrobe.
It's a traditional inn so its small, but it's a pretty good experience. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They have a public bath that looks like few people use. It's pretty relaxing and part of the experience so I'd def recommend giving it a shot. If you have tattoos its no problem using the bath either. It's also very close to the Kyoto Imperial Palace and the small restaurants in the area are pretty good too. If you're not fond of small living quarters or sleeping on a futon then your better off at hotel for an long stay. However, I would still recommend to stay here at least 1 night for the traditional inn experience.
