We stayed there for two nights and really enjoyed both the place in itself and the service. Our room, although "standard" was big and felt more like a suite. Taka, who was taking care of us, was extremely friendly and attentive ; the rest of the staff was equally dedicated. Breakfast was great. Overall, a wonderful opportunity to live the...

This is a charming traditional ryokan with a very welcoming staff. We stayed for one night to have the traditional experience, including the in-room dinner + breakfast. I wouldn't recommend the in-room massage, as it's not a very relaxing experience. The food was great, but without a menu to guide us, we weren't always certain what we were eating.

We stayed at Seikoro for one night--it was wonderful. Our room was in the back bldg that some have complained about, but I thought it was great. We had a nice view of the mountain and Kiyomizu-dera. It was also very quiet. We booked our room through Agoda and opted out of dinner, but included breakfast (we chose Japanese style)....

We stayed just for a night but it was a wonderful experience and would have stayed for an extra night if our itinerary had allowed it. At arrival we were assigned our room and a member of staff who looked after us and our room - including serving us dinner and breakfast, showing us how to wear our traditional Japanese...

If you were looking for the hot spring or the Japanese style shower, you may be disappointed, but if you were looking to stay a night of accomodation the Japanese style and enjoy traditional Japanese dinner, then you won't be disappointed. I was rushed to check-out with my mom after a good night's stay. We wanted to have our breakfast...

We really enjoyed our stay at Seikoro! We were coming to the end of our tour of Japan and decided to stay in a traditional Ryokan for two nights before heading back to Tokyo for our flight. The staff at Seikoro were so friendly and helpful, even providing extra umbrellas and helping to dry our shoes after a nasty downpour!...

We felt like special guests in someone's home. This ryokan was lovely with the best quality being such a warm, welcoming, and respectful staff. Bonus was the private garden view and in room wooden bath. Good location with nearby local subway station. Highly recommended!

Beautiful, authentic ryokan with the most charming and helpful hosts. Our room opened up to a zen garden. We enjoyed a delcious breakfast served in our room. A little out of the way but can walk to Gion. I would definitely stay again.

The overall experience and hospitality was great - I just think you can get the same experience at a cheaper rate. The traditional dinner was good and breakfast as well. Staff was more than kind and helpful.

If you get the chance to stay at any Ryokan I would strongly recommend it, but if you can manage to stay at the Seikoro Inn you will not regret it. When you first arrive you will be greeted by the staff as a long lost friend as they welcome you. You remove your shoes at the front door (every...
