    This is a traditional style Japanese inn. Our host was extremely polite and helpful, and spoke English well. Our room is large enough, and has plenty of cupboard space, a large round table, two fold out futon beds with ample linen, and tea making facilities....More

    Despite the thin walls, most guests seem to respect the silence of the place. Quite well located, although not in the most active part of Kyoto. Very clean, big room (Japanese-Style Economy Twin Room with Shared Bathroom). Better futons than in other places. Definitely recommended.

    A great traditional ryokan in Kyoto. As mentioned in other reviews, this place is out of the city center but is very well connected. Just hop on the bus and you'll be in most places of interest in max 30 minutes. The place itself is...More

    Absolutely wonderful! It's an old house, but with absolutely modern, even luxurious toilets and showers (with soap, shampoo, conditioner, hair dryer under the sink), and many of them, too. The rooms are old japanese style, that means: tatami, futon and zabuton (cushions to sit on),...More

    It's a Japanese old-style hotel in Kyoto. It's not close to the city center (about 35 minutes in bus from Kyoto station and about 10 minutes walking from the nearest underground station). In our case we rented bikes, which is a very suitable way to...More

    Hot springs and historic temples characterize the

    majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene
    artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the
    bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji
    Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the
