I stay in this ryokan for 3 night in Kyoto for Gion Matsuri and one word. I never regret a single decision for this. Wanted to review it earlier but I was too busy with work. So here goes.

We felt welcome from the moment we entered Ohanabo Ryokan! Our hostesses spoke good English and answered all of our (probably stupid) questions cheerfully.
Our room was beautiful in its simplicity. Our kaiseki dinner, served in the room, was delicious. The women came in to...More
Made us fall in love with Japan even more. Don't be put off by the price (which is average for Ryokan anyway) - the room was HUGE. Separate living area to bedroom and just great to relax before and after sight-seeing. Location not really draw...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
