Amazing traditional ryokan and customer service
Amazing traditional ryokan in Kyoto! We stayed in the room with the balcony and loved relaxing out there before OR after a day of shopping and walking around. The Main Street is walkable to shopping and Gion and you turn off to this lovely quiet traditional street to this ryokan. There are also ramen and other popular eats in the neighborhood. Aside from our room being clean and spacious, the service was top notch. The staff is pretty fluent in English and answered all our questions quickly (even through the hotels booking site). She also provided excellent dinner recommendations (even helped us book them)! At the end of our stay, we also got a ride to Kyoto station. We highly recommend this place to stay!

Beautiful traditional hotel at a reasonable price!
Village Kiramachi was an amazing experience. My wife and I stayed there for 6 nights during our honeymoon. The staff were incredibly nice and accommodating, the hotel (ryokan) itself is a work of art, the neighborhood is a gem, the one complimentary Japanese breakfast was excellent, and the price is very reasonable compared to other ryokans in Kyoto. We stayed during a great time -- Gion Festival in July, which had a number of parade events just around the corner. Our stay took place in both a standard room, and then an upgraded suite with outdoor garden/soaking tub, both of which were impeccably designed with incredible attention to detail -- the recessed lighting, soft wood floors, garden scenery, even the scent stick diffusers, were all top notch. I also had the fortunate pleasure of meeting the architect / construction expert who built the facility, who happened to be on site working on expansions, which allowed me to learn more about the process, history, and design behind the traditional elements of the hotel facility. To top it all off, one of the hotel staff, who happened to have a car, was kind enough to drop us off at the train station when we left. We truly could not have asked for more!
