Kyotoya
Ranked #9 of 20 Hotels / Ryokan in Takeo
Reviewed 16 March 2017 via mobile

Went there with my wife early March. The hotel is pretty old - good if you are looking for a hotel with retro feeling. Service was good and staff is helpful. The hotel do provide transport with antique toyota car (which is like the "highlight" of the stay). The onsen bath is comfortable during early winter time too. If you are not looking for these extra points perhaps the hotel is a bit pricier than you would expect.

Reviewed 25 February 2017

This place has seen better times. The place is clean, but everything is really old, the carpets are worn, the air-conditioning is old, the bathroom could do with a refurbishment.

Service was friendly and helpful. The staff could speak decent English.

The onset is ok, but I have been in nicer ones. An outside pool, an inside pool and a steam sauna are available. Again, they have seen better days.

Breakfast was not great at all! It actually was the worst meal I have had in two months travelling in Japan! Juts not prepared with a lot of care. Stodgy rice. Boring dashi. A tasteless miso soup.

For the price I expect more: Better food and a hotel that is in better shape!

We stayed here in order to go to Arita for the ceramics. Such a beautiful room! Traditional Japanese style with tatami mats, sliding doors etc. The Onsen style bathroom is also beautiful. Yukata & room Slippers provided (Don't take the toilet slippers anywhere but the toilet). The breakfast was interesting and plentiful though there were a few components we couldn't recognise. The in-house onsen was traditional with fully nude bathing & gender separated; and was open all night(!) The staff are very helpful, and gave us a lift to the station once we'd checked out (in their classic car - the same one seen in their profile picture on booking.com)

Only slight downside was that this was our first time sleeping on futons so found them/the floor a bit hard. Be aware that the pillows are double sided! (one side like bean bag & 1 soft side). Also the surrounding area is really quiet.

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting Arita and the pottery area. The room was a typical Japanese set up with tatami mats and futons. The futons were quite thin and I would recommend more than one for a bit of padding! The rooms have ensuites with small plunge pools. We were not brave enough to venture into the Japanese baths. Food was reasonable, with full menus at breakfast and dinner. The vintage Toyotas are cute, and they seem to offer a free shuttle service to the Takeo Onsen JR station.

We drove here from Fukuoka which took about 2 hours with a brief stop for coffee. Quiet town with very neat and tidy shops. The Japanese inn has pickup service for those who come by train. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good.
