    Location and friendly staff. Good recomendations re:food options in the area. Ok breakfast.

    Despite booking for 4 people, two beds only were ready when we arrived. We were asked to pay for additional beds (and were told that there will only be breakfast for 2 people available in the morning) thankfully that was sorted out by the lovely evening shift staff member (thank you again!!). We were absolutely freezing during the first night as the heating did not cope with the draft coming through the windows. Next day we were given some electric blankets to put under the tatamis and that helped a little, nevertheless they kept on switching off during the night and the kids were cold again. We could only use the showers as the bathtub had suspicious black marks (not ideal with kids). Having stayed in a number of guesthouses in Japan, we found that this was more of a glorified hostel aiming at backpackers than a ryokan and at over 200 euros/night we did not consider it a good value for money.

    Great atmosphere. The place is ideally located between the central train station and Gion district. Both places are waking distance. The staff is welcoming and very accommodating. We definitely recommend this Ryokan if you want to experience the feel of Kyoto.

    The accommodations were authentic and beautiful. We loved the complimentary robes and tea in the room. Even though the restroom facilities were shared, we barely saw other guests and never had any issues using the restrooms, sinks, or showers. The staff was extremely helpful in allowing us to leave our luggage prior to check-in, even providing us access before the front desk was open.

    It would have been nice to have a warm breakfast or to have the cafe area open earlier (what was provided to us was definitely adequate, though). If we had stayed longer than 2 nights, it also would have been good to have a cleaning service for the rooms (although there was daily towel replacement).
