A traditional, comfortable Ryokan
As mentioned in the other reviews, this is a traditional Ryokan. They don't speak much English and you need to respect their rules, but the staff is all very hospitable and gave us a good understanding of how traditional Japanese travel. At the same time, they had most of the amenities of a three-star hotel.

Good location, near the Nishi market
Checked in at 4 pm. Yet, I was able to leave my luggage at reception until 4 pm, and I appreciated that I can leave my luggage for an extra day without fee after checking out. The hotel didn't provide Internet from in-house but told us to use the city free public internet service which is slow and I wasn't able to log in and used.

10/10 Exceptional

Cozy and charming ryokan
The staff was really friendly and helpful. I wasn't sure if the room I booked had toilet and shower, but it did have both. It was a great surprise. I had a really good experience.

Authentic Kyoto experience
This is a great place to stay in Kyoto for a traditional Japanese experience. I loved the room - it was like a dolls house with everything I needed and quite spacious. It was so quiet and cosy, I had the best sleep! The location was excellent a short walk to Gion district, markets and temples. The owners don't speak much english but you can get by. If you want a meal in the Ryokan you have to order the day before you arrive. If not there are plenty of places to eat nearby. I think it's perfect for a short stay and traditional experience. i would stay again.

Normal service, but that seems to be Kyoto standards, they don't like tourists too much there and I cannot blame them I guess. Staff speaks almost only Japanese, but is friendly and helpful. Check-in is late, check-out early. Early check-in is not possible. However, they do store your luggage in the meantime. Price quality wise I would next time opt for something else in Kyoto. But for the experience of a Ryokan on a budget it is ok. Otherwise spend some big bugs for the top end Ryokan.

Mix up in the Booking
Unfortunately we didn't get to stay here. There was a mix up in our booking date and when we arrived it was full. They weren't that welcoming, but we got to use the wifi in the lobby to find a new place to stay. The condition of the lobby wasn't very nice. No air con and no one was there to welcome us.

Beautiful quaint hotel with lovely staff
Staff were so lovely, rooms were fine with air conditioning which made it more appealing. Only fault however I understand it's a small family business was that there was a curfew between 11pm-12 am which made us feel uncomfortable retuning that late as staff were waiting up for us so they could lock up. Being in a new country and city for the first time we wanted to go exploring late at night for total expletive however kept looking at the clock so we would not get back so late. Other the that would re commend

Not a very welcoming experience
We actually didn't get to stay here because there was a mix up in our reservation dates and they ended up being full. Upon walking in there was no one in the lobby to welcome us and no aircon on. It is warm these days so it made the hotel seem like it wasn't really prioritizing welcoming the guests properly. Overall, the place is a 3 star hotel type of vibe. The rooms were full booked but we got to check it out. We ended up going down the street and found a place that also gave free tea and coffee which is a good touch. Similar traditional style. For the price though this hotel is slightly cheaper.

2/10 Poor

Locked out by the Ryokan!!!!
The hotel locked us out after we went out in the evening. At no point did they state that they lock the front door but they left a note on the door saying they will be back at 05:40. It was pouring with rain and we had decided to have dinner and then went to a club. If the hotel plans on locking guests out they should at least inform us in advance so we can make plans to be back in time.
