Very friendly service. The ryokan

Very friendly service. The ryokan looks a bit tired though and could do with some TLC. No internet connection in the rooms but there are several PCs in the lobby that can be used by guests free of charge.

A nice place to stay for that

A nice place to stay for that extra Japanese feel. But if futon mattresses on tatami floor mats are not your thing, then best not to go. The service was great, they really want to make you feel welcome. Located down a small street off the main road so you can escape the hustle and bustle, but 5 mins walk gets you right into the thick of the action.

It is located a short walk to

It is located a short walk to the interesting Nishiki Market. Two convenient shops are also around the corners. Bus stops are found at nearby Sijo, which is the main street of kyoto. A day bus ticket is recommended for unlimited rides, taking you to most of the tourist sites within the city. We recommend this Ryokan. But one must be reminded that this is not a traditional Ryokan, rather it is a city ryokan. Still worth experiencing.

If you want the experience of

If you want the experience of a Ryokan at a budget price, this is a great place to stay. Just a few streets away from the main road, a close walk to the Nishiki Markets and a short bus ride to Gion. Only 2 stops on the subway from Kyoto station. Probably need 2 or more Futons to be comfortable if your a westener, but they are readily available in the room if you require them. Overall, a great Japanese experience.
