The ryokan is very comfortable, with gorgeous traditional rooms where you sleep on a futon (quite comfortable although we had to double up and have two futons each!). We stayed in a D-type Japanese style with tatami mats. Room was large and comfortable, with a/c and private bathroom. Staff were helpful and spoke decent English.
The traditional Japanese breakfast was 1000 Yen and had to be ordered by 8pm the night before. Very good experience! Otherwise there were western breakfast choices you could order in the morning.
Easy to find from the train station, and on a relatively quite side street (although there were building works across the road which was a bit noisy in the morning). They sold daily bus tickets for 500 Yen which was really handy (and worth it if you were going to get more than 2 buses a day).
I would recommend it highly for a stay in Kyoto.
