    It was inconvenient as it was far away from the city. The place was run down, toilets old, kitchen old, indoor "onsen" is just a bath tub.

    Nice and cosy. Could be better if slightly cheaper

    Considering the amount paid, we were slightly disappointed as a family. This is because we have stayed in many ryokans before. However, do expect the usual Japanese service standards and hospitality. Kaiseiki dinner was nice and varied in our 2 nights stay as well.

    Our stay at Ryokan Yamazaki was delightful. We stayed for 3 nights. The ryokan was clean and gorgeous! The staff took amazing care of us! It might not provide some of the more premium amenities, but definitely worth a consideration. Definitely consider the half-board option. The Kaiseki dinner was delicious! I would definitely recommend this ryokan especially for the stellar service! Just be warned that the ryokan is a little ways out. It's about 40 minute bus ride from Kyoto station. There's two bus stops within 5 minutes of the ryokan. We didn't really see it as a problem, but the extended amount of travel might be discouraging to some.

    A bit far from the city. We didn’t expect it’s a hostel.

    The best part of the stay was enjoying the meals! I was amazingly surprised by the delicious food during breakfast and dinner! The facilities are old and the bedroom was very simple, the second night we had to search for towels ourselves because they took ours and didn’t replace them. The location is the farthest I believe but the bus that gets you there is part of the Japan Rail pass and since it’s just one road it would be difficult to get lost. Our room was closest to the road so we could hear the traffic but the food made up for all the inconvenience! It was a good experience!

    Great peaceful location to stay!

    This was a beautiful hotel, traditional Japanese, which is what we wanted. I would highly recommend it. It is outside of the main downtown so we only wish we had planned to stay longer than 1 night. The taxis were easier and faster then the buses, but there is a bus from the JR train station.
