The only good thing about this overpriced ryokan was its good location in Higashiyama. Otherwise, it looked very tired (scratched table, dirty walls). Its onsen was very unappealing and dismal looking so I refrained from bathing in it.. Otherwise, the staff was helpful and friendly.The footbath was nice too.

Beautiful, well maintained, large tatami rooms with plenty of living space, fridge, full length mirror, self contained bathroom and toilet. Staff friendly and helpful. Also has an outdoor hot spring food bath which is heaven after walking kilometres between temples all day!

You felt transported to another time and another place....

Only one night, but it was fantastic. We tried the onsen of the ryokan: relaxing, quite big and so...japanese style!!!! The room was typical..futon and tatami. If you have back problems, sleeping on a futon is not a solution!! During the day there's the small table with the hot water kettle, tea bags and cups..at around 6.00 pm they change...
