After staying in Tokyo - I was heading to Kyoto. And after seeing the good reivews of the B&B Keiko's Ryokan I decided to stay there. And that was the right decision. It's not big, fancy or modern. But it's cosy, old fashioned and very homely. For me, it was the essence of living at a Ryokan to experience to...

Staying at B&B Keiko for 3 nights in Kyoto made my trip so much more memorable! No joke. I hurried to Keiko's place right after arriving at KIX, being my first solo trip, I felt everything was so rushed and overwhelming, and even when my taxi arrived at B&B Keiko I still found myself a little lost. But Keiko came...

This is a second time we stayed in B&B Keiko. This review is for downtown B&B and we stayed there for 6 nights in Nov 2011 with our 8 year old daughter. The price comes with breakfast at the nearby ShinShinDo cafe. It's a traditional Japanese house with the comfort of modern toilet and fairly traditional bathroom. There are 2...

We stayed in B&B Keiko for three nights over the New Year holiday period What a lovely place! Owner Keiko is very kind and always willing to help, she came to pick us up from our previous hotel, and gave us a ride to the temple we were going to visit that day. Also dropped us off at Kyoto station...

My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights in September 2011. After leaving the Kyoto station we took a taxi and after a phone call to the B&B for further directions we arrived to be greeted by Raphael. The building both outside and in is a time warp; tatami matting, sliding doors, low (ouch) doorways and futons. The garden...

I highly recommend B&B Keiko in Marutamachi. My partner and I combined my work trip (conference) with extra 4 days of holidaying and we chose B&B Keiko in Marutamachi. The location was ideal as it was close to shops, restaurants, downtown area, train station and Kyoto Imperial Palace (5 mins walk). Traditional setting of the place was extremely comfortable (tatami...

My daughter and I stayed at B and B Keiko and were delighted with the friendly welcome and charm of both Keiko and Raphael - lovely people. Great little traditional B and B, with just the futon style Tetami mats in an original room, we slept like logs! We found the printed directions, in Japanese script, we could show the...

We stayed for 3 nights last November. What made this place so great was Keiko, the owner. She came every morning to prepare us breakfast. We tried both Japanese and western style breakfast, they were delicious. Keiko also gave us tips on places to go and food to eat. The direction to the house was clear, we took a bus...

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
