Beautiful traditional style room
Very beautiful room. Feels like a room that you can only get in Japan and not anywhere else in the world. Within walking distance to Nishiki market.

Ryokan experience in a foreigner friendly package
To put it simply my stay at Village Kiramachi completely blew away my expectations. The room/property is beautiful and well maintained , the staff is all very friendly and can speak both Japanese and English ,the property is located very nicely in relation to major shopping areas and the local train station. Another interesting this was that this property also offers a tasty breakfast for 2200Yen and a chance to experience a Japanese Tea ceremony for FREE! One thing I really liked was that one the first day the staff went out of their way to make sure that I knew how to get around Kyoto and showed me where the best places to tour/eat were. Lastly all the staff I interacted with all spoke both Japanese and English well (especially Naru). As someone currently learning the language, this made things easier for me when I got stuck in Japanese and I really appreciated this.

Amazing traditional ryokan and customer service
Amazing traditional ryokan in Kyoto! We stayed in the room with the balcony and loved relaxing out there before OR after a day of shopping and walking around. The Main Street is walkable to shopping and Gion and you turn off to this lovely quiet traditional street to this ryokan. There are also ramen and other popular eats in the neighborhood. Aside from our room being clean and spacious, the service was top notch. The staff is pretty fluent in English and answered all our questions quickly (even through the hotels booking site). She also provided excellent dinner recommendations (even helped us book them)! At the end of our stay, we also got a ride to Kyoto station. We highly recommend this place to stay!

Beautiful traditional hotel at a reasonable price!
Village Kiramachi was an amazing experience. My wife and I stayed there for 6 nights during our honeymoon. The staff were incredibly nice and accommodating, the hotel (ryokan) itself is a work of art, the neighborhood is a gem, the one complimentary Japanese breakfast was excellent, and the price is very reasonable compared to other ryokans in Kyoto. We stayed during a great time -- Gion Festival in July, which had a number of parade events just around the corner. Our stay took place in both a standard room, and then an upgraded suite with outdoor garden/soaking tub, both of which were impeccably designed with incredible attention to detail -- the recessed lighting, soft wood floors, garden scenery, even the scent stick diffusers, were all top notch. I also had the fortunate pleasure of meeting the architect / construction expert who built the facility, who happened to be on site working on expansions, which allowed me to learn more about the process, history, and design behind the traditional elements of the hotel facility. To top it all off, one of the hotel staff, who happened to have a car, was kind enough to drop us off at the train station when we left. We truly could not have asked for more!

Highly recommended
Great place to stay to experience Ryokan style accomodation, with easy access to the subway and Ginza. They gave us a free upgrade, stored our bags without charge and were flexible on check-in and check-out time, which is not universal in Japan. The Japanese breakfast was a nice touch and they even gave us a complimemtary lift to Kyoto Station. Can not recommend this place or the hotel staff enough. Would 100% stay here again if we ever came back to Kyoto.
