    The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room was always clean. Moreover, the room was bigger than the average hotel room in Japan, and very comfortable.

    Maybe the shower curtain needed a little clean-up.

    The location of the Ryokan was great at a walking distance from Kyoto Station

    It wasn't a complete Ryokan experience like we had imagined it to be. The living space was tiny and additionally no food served within the room or a tea-ceremony.

    Highly recommended place to stay. Walking distance from Tokyo station. Very friendly staff. Nice Japanese breakfast or continental. Very quite location/rooms.

    All was excellent and as expected.

    This was my first stay in a ryokan-style hotel and I really enjoyed it. The room was quite small but roomy for a solo traveller. There were instructions for setting up the futon and wearing the Japanese pyjamas which were very helpful. The staff were very friendly, the breakfast was quick and good value for money. Overall an excellent stay and would stay again.

    Keep in mind the solo rooms have to share a shower, however this was never an issue for me as I think the other room/s were unoccupied during my stay. The rooms look a little old and lived in but it was not an issue and added to the charm.
