So lucky to be able to book a night!
We were so lucky to be able to squeeze into Gion Hatanaka during the extreme busy Sakura season. The beautiful ryokan sits right beside Yasaka Shrine but comfortably far from the crazy tourist crowds. I believe they represent the real Japanese standard of services. It is the most memorable highlight in my stay in Kyoto.

Once in a Lifetime Experience
A wonderful, traditional ryokan in the heart of historic Kyoto. Traditional, yes, but with all the modern conveniences. And warm, enveloping service. Ate all our dinners on tatami mats in our room. Wonderful food. Once in a lifetime experience.

Amazing stay! The room was massive, clean, and comfortable. I highly recommend ordering a meal for at least dinner, and additionally breakfast if you have the time.

Very Good 8.0
Nice, if expensive, ryokan in great location
Great location, pleasant accommodations, great English-speaking staff. It‘s a little expensive for an older (ie slightly run down) Ryokan, but it was a very nice experience. You are definitely paying for the location, which is fantastic if you want easy access to the Gion area and Kawaramachi. Not sure if the Ryokan was just incredibly quiet or if it was empty during our stay in late January. We had the Kaiseki dinner one night and enjoyed it. Largely seafood, so if that isn’t your cup of tea it might not suit you. The public bath was also very nice.

Great value, not a fan of the food
Phenomenal value and experience. Significantly exceeded expectations. I don’t think I could do a ryokan for my entire trip but highly recommend for a couple nights. Comes with what seems like a 10 course traditional Japanese meal. I personally, did not enjoy most of the dishes but it was quite the experience
