Excellent location for us! The staff was amazing and so helpful translating and giving tips .... they helped with taxi and even to order takeout .... traditional Japanese style lodging made us feel right at home... however if you are expecting five star hotel comfort, this is not the place for you... futon traditional style beds and tiny bathroom... but we loved the experience
Good location not far from Kyoto's train station. Nice and affordable Japanese style experience! This is a bit tiny for a Western guy (especially the bathroom) but it's fun. Great and helpful staff.
Friendly staff who provided a very warm and welcoming experience. The maintain a beautiful, relaxing, and clean ryokan.
It was not central enough--a good 25-30 minute walk to get to downtown, Kyoto. But it was close to the train station.
Nice place, friendly staff, close to Kyoto train station and several temples within walking distance.
A little far from Gion - which is where the nightlife and restaurants tend to be - but the regular buses help there.
Most of the staff can speak good English and are able to provide good information about the city. I stayed in the Japanese style room alone but I think is is spacious enough for 2 person. It is much bigger than those budget hotels I had stayed in Toyko and Osaka. There is a bath tub which is good for me as I did a lot of walking in Kyoto. It provided a warm comfort to me every night after I returned to the Ryokan.
The Ryokan is not exactly near to the Kyoto Station. It takes about 10-15 minutes to walk there. If you are carrying a lot of luaggages, I would suggest you take a bus there whichi is 2 bus stops away.
Small cozy hotel, conveniently located in a nice area a 15 minute walk from the Kyoto train station.
Priced a little high for the rather simple room.
Nice hotel, very friendly staff and very clean.
Difficult to find - not signed Kyomachiya OR Ryokan and looks like any other building on the street.
very nice traditional japanese room, very friendly and helpful staff
