this is the place
The best part of my vacation. Magical quiet and private. Inside of historic park on top of a hill. I love this special place and will come back. The hosts are very helpful. The bath is great. Breakfast is delicious. Very close to walk to temples and shops. I am so happy here, looking into the garden and listening to the birds. Amazing!

Kyoto Inn
It was great to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of this inn. Kyoto was much busier than I imagined so staying here was a nice change and felt homely. Would recommend staying here but maybe arrange for a shuttle to get up the hill. It was a bit of a walk with luggage but not an unpleasant one.

Wish I had stayed longer!
I was so pleasantly surprised by this little inn. Removed from the bustle of the busy areas, it’s only a short walk to all kinds of Kyoto attractions. The hosts were most generous and kind. The breakfast was excellent. I would highly recommend this ryokan and would definitely also return.

Authentic Feel and Superb Hospitality
Amazing! The service is another level! Not only are you greeted with kindness they really go above and beyond to ensure your stay is good! They helped us plan our next trip to Mt. Fuji, scheduled our buses for us and even would help us order food. It was so amazing we had to extend the stay! The location is nice and underrated while allowing easy access to some AMAZING sites and historical locations that are all pretty much a 20-30 minute walking radius. The fact they share their authentic history and rich culture by opening their doors to foreigners is honestly the best part. It really felt like home and that you grew up in the area with how friendly and caring they are. If you are staying in Kyoto to experience the culture of Japan and are looking for assistance beyond just your stay I highly recommend this location!

Absolutely LOVED the traditional Japanese room!
I had a wonderful stay here for 2 nights. The building is located inside a temple in Gion area in Kyoto. If you want to experience staying in a traditional Japanese room, this is it! Very calm and serene environment. The staff are very warm and welcoming. They dedicate energy and care to every single person staying in the place. Loved my stay there!

Very good 8.0
Good Experience
+ nice experience in a typical ryokan based in the park + The little hot bath + The spacious room and the calm around the area - Hard futon, careful if back problems - No dinner, only a frugal breakfast. Pricey for what you get - Our room entrance was a tunnel of 3 you had to bend to go in and out. Very bad for the back again

Great traditional inn
Excellent authentic feel, great hospitality, would highly recommend. A little bit tricky to find, so I would definitely print out the information that the ryokan provides to give to the taxi.
