      The staff were really helpful and nice... but weren't intrusive. The location was excellent and it was very clean.

      While it was clean and tidy, it missed a bit of unique charm that a lot of Ryokan have. Also, the rates for New Years eve were really expensive, though the rates during normal times seemed reasonable.

    • Group of friends

      Like the proximity to the Nishiki Market.Like the peaceful surroundings. Like the safe streets at night and the spacious park in front of the hotel. Like the proximity (about 15-min walk) to Pontocho Alley and Gion area.

      The staff are very nice, and location is good, near to the food market.

      Great rooms and lovely staff especially the housekeepers.

      The 24 hour reception was closed at 2am, and had to call from a local phone to be let inside the building, not very impressed as we checked with hotel staff before going out.

      The atmosphere was very good, the room very clean and beautiful in true Japanese style and the staff was extremely nice and helpful and spoke perfect English. They even offered us a complimentary green tea when we got there!

      Clean, friendly & ready to help. We found the location excellent. Hired bikes. We definitely recommend. Our children 15 & 17 stayed in same room japanese style.

    • Single
      8.2

      Excellent location-central to public transportation and most sights. The room was the traditional type, so no frills, but the Japanese bed was comfortable. I wish the floors were heated but the comforter was quite adequate despite the cold night. I had the kaiseki dinner in my room and thought it was delicious; the staff who brought tried her best to explain the dinner to me but mostly I was just adventurous and enjoyed it. The onsen is in the basement level- clean and spacious; I actually had it to myself both days since I bathed around 4pm (after activities, before dinner). I didn't use the bathroom in the room as it was very small. The shared onsen/bath was hot and comfortable. The staff spoke some English and really made much effort to answer questions and make my stay enjoyable. If you haven't used an asian onsen/spa bath before, I recommend reading up on it. I didn't really see any female staff, so an explanation as to how to use the facility might be hard to obtain. You could always call the tourist center at Kyoto Station. There is a 7-11 and Starbucks just a block away, as well as many restaurants and Nishiki Food Market and Daimaru Dept. Store.

      The hotel is a cross between a hotel and ryokan. The room is traditional but the rest appears as an older but clean/maintained building. So, it might not meet some expectations. It is expensive, but Japan is expensive. Check around to get the best price and compare to others, particularly on the hotel website (sometimes difficult to find in English).

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Hotel would be best described as modern traditional. It is a blend of the old world style - tatami mats, hot baths, minimalist furnishings with some modern touches as flat screen tv.

      Very great service-mind staffs
