My friend and I stayed here three nights in mid-November 2013. We each had a Japanese-style room to ourselves. While I probably would not opt to stay in a ryokan (traditional Japanese hotel) for the entire trip, it was a wonderful experience. The woman who runs the ryokan speaks enough English but I would not say she is fluent. She...

This wasn't our first choice as we arrived in kyoto,we wanted tot stay at a hostel but due to the obvious high season ,no room available..so we called this ryokan. What a pleasant surprise!not only they had a room for us..it was traditional Japanse style room! The owner (older woman) spoke good english and was very helpful! I definitely recommend...

Found this charming Ryokan thanks to Le Guide du Routard and stayed there in January 2011 for four nights. Two friends came to join me and liked it too. The owners - two women - were very nice and helpful. The location was great, not too far from the Station and easy to walk to. Nice little street . I...

Stayed for 3 nights. On the 1st night that we reach Kansai Airport, it was already about 1030pm after we clear the custom at Kansai Airport. We informed Ryokan owner that we will be late and by the time we reach the Ryokan, it's about 1am. Luckily the owner is still awake to wait for us. We are staying at...

Stayed here for 2 nights, Staff was OK, could have been more friendlier though. There is a sento/public bath nearby, which is not so bad. Location feel a bit out the place, you need a long walk or take a bus to reach the center of the city. pros : Price -obviously- cons : location

I stumbled onto this Ryokan when I could not find anything else end of November 2011. First of all I must say I am NOT a Ryokan person. Sleeping on futons on tatami floors at this Ryokan was fine for me but I had the hardest time struggling to get off the floor every morning as my knees don't work...

Stayed 4 Nights. Room is clean and big. Staffs & Owner were accommodating, polite and can speak english. If you consider the price in for all these I think its a great deal and the location is not too bad either.

Ryokujo area, you could walk from ShowSeiYen garden, where the bus stop called "Kawaramachi-Showmen" from just 5min. walk. Or you could catch cab from JR Kyoto station, i think roughly JPY 1,000...... anyway, the pension is places in between canal "Takasegawa" and river "Kamo" residential area, tranquil and cool temperature compare than other areas.

During a year living in Japan, we found travel very expensive and looked for good bargains in traditional settings. A French friend of ours found this ryokan in a well-known French guide, and we first stayed with her there on a cold January weekend--and stayed cozily warm. We stayed there four other weekends throughout the late winter and spring, and...
