We were overjoyed at our room. Also would like to mention their service was excellent and location was walkable from Kyoto train station and a bus station was nearby as well. It scored well on all aspects. We really enjoyed our time here.

5 mins walk to Kyoto station. Nice food and people. Small room but just nice for 4 of us. No view from the room, quite expensive comparing to normal hotel around the vicinity. You can have your private bath in your room or go for public bath. Overall a wonderful experience as this is my first Ryokan stay.

This Ryokan has a little big Japanese style shared bathroom. You can feel Japanese traditional atmosphere here. When we had some problems, stuffs came to our room and treated politely. I didn't eat here, but had a good time here. Also they have enough amenities.

Try booking a ryokan in Kyoto in March for the month of April. It is NOT easy. Hifumi Ryokan was one of the only places with space (partly b/c they aren't on booking.com). The hotel has a person on staff who speaks fantastic English so it was easy enough booking via email. We were pleasantly surprised with the ryokan. It's... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to see the Sakura (cherry blossoms) in April last year. We book our stay by E-mails with the ryokan (inn). The e-mail reply was efficient and very clear. They offer us a room on the second floor, which was great, spacious, and clean. Very traditional Japanese rooms. Wifi was strong. Very good value and great... More

The hotel actually is five minutes from the train station and the place most city busses start out from. Four of us did fit the smaller room but the ten tatami room would have been more comfortable but were not available when we booked. Bathrooms are small but there is a spacious public bath, Japanese style, on the ground floor.... More

This is one of the nice, quiet ryokan near Kyoto Station (JR) ... It's very convenient to go to the other sight seeing places. Furthermore, I really love the active and service-mind services of this ryokan

Good customer service. Very authentic to experience Japanese ryokan. The meals( breakfast & dinner) served are value for money and true japanese. If only the public bath is natural outdoor hot spring onsen would be perfect.
