Amazing Japanese experience
We stayed two nights in the room with the private onsen and massage chair. The staff was so amazingly attentive to our every need and accommodated our request for an in-room dinner to celebrate our anniversary. They even gifted us a set of tea cups to celebrate. The onsen was amazing to have in the room and the room had a peaceful and quiet view of the riverfront. The traditional Japanese breakfast experience in the provided socks, pajamas and robes was also a must-do. The floor beds were not a problem and quite comfortable and the staff was very quick to set up and take down the room each morning and night in a way that did not disturb your day. The location is in walking distance to the bamboo forest and other nearby tourist sites but far enough away from the crowds. We recommend staying here if you want a truly relaxing and traditional Japanese experience that is convenient to the sites and shopping/eats in the area.

Good 6.0
Not terrible, not great.
Room was nice and people were friendly. I was expecting a little more in the way of service and quality of food. Getting charged for a bottle of beer from the mini fridge feels excessive on a $900 a night room that we had access to from 6pm-10am

Great ryokan by the river
It was Arashiyama in the maple season, so every hotel was full and fortunately there was one suite available. The suite was huge with a lot of amenities, and a half-open hot water bath. Service was perfect, the staff was sensitive and very helpful, and fluent in English. We did not try the kaiseki dinner but I believed it would be good. The breakfast was generous in portion and decent looking as expected. The only drawback is that one had to struggle between going out or spending more time in this comfortable ryokan. Highly recommended and hoped to come back again in the sakura season!
