Had to Move
The staff at the Nishiyama Ryokan are excellent and incredibly helpful. Unfortunately that is where it ends. We had just arrived from another ryokan in Aizu which had been great and we were looking forward to our stay at the Nishiyama Ryokan in Kyoto. Unfortunately the bathroom in the room we were given smelled very strongly of sewer gas. Also there were a lot of small flies in the room. Whether this was associated with the problem in the bathroom we do not know. It was later in the evening when we arrived and we spent a restless night because of the smells and flies. By 5am we contacted through the on-line chat service and they contacted the hotel on our behalf. We were informed by that there were no vacant rooms available and that the hotel would not give us a refund. offered us a $100 voucher for future bookings to stay in the room. In spite of the lack of a refund we decided to leave and made a booking at another hotel. A staff member then showed up at our room telling us that they had indeed prepared another room for us. By this time we had decided that we did not want to remain at the hotel and had packed. When we got down to the lobby with our luggage the staff were very kind and gave us a full refund even for the night we had stayed. We cannot fault the staff in anyway, they were superb and hopefully the problem we had was limited to the room we had, but it is difficult to imagine how this property gets the rating it has.

Relaxing Experience
The room we stayed in was in the traditional Japanese style but also included Western style beds and a bathroom. It was a good balance of the culture while being comfortable and familiar for people visiting from the US. The basement included a common bath area (separated by gender), which is very traditional for a Ryokan. I found it a little awkward because males in the US do not usually bathe together, but I ended up having the bath to myself and really enjoyed the space and freedom. We also met the owners in the morning over matcha and they were wonderful. The hotel is a short walk from the nearest metro station and there are a number of restaurants within a reasonable walking distance. We would love to stay here again if we return to Kyoto.

The level of service here at this ryokan was outstanding. From the moment I walked in until the moment I retrieved my bags on checkout day to sightsee, the staff really makes you feel like you are a true guest in somebody's home. I highly recommend at least trying the traditional Japanese dinner one night during your stay. For me, it was the best meal I have ever had. Every course was intricately plated and the ingredients matched with the season as well as the region. It was also nice knowing I could come back to my room and have tea after a day of sightseeing. If you are on the taller side like myself, just ensure you duck to avoid hitting your head on some of the beams :).
