Friendly and helpful staffs. The room is spacious for two kids to run around. The bathroom comes with decent bathtub but overall size is a little small. Breakfasts were delicious (we opted for Japanese. There is Western breakfast too). It is walking distance to subway stations, convenient stores, eateries, and a bazaar like place with lots of goodies (the place is called Teramachi). There are TV (with local channels), fridge for storing food and drinks, air-conditioning system, table with a tea ... Read more

We were really keen to try a Ryokan whilst in Kyoto and we were really looking forward to our stay in Nishiyama. We had 4 to a room which already is too many if you're going to do a Ryokan and enjoy it. The rooms are small and with four mattresses on the floor and one bathroom which doesn't leave much space/room for everyone. One or two nights of this experience is probably all you need. The Ryokan was in a good location down a quiet street and the staff were friendly and polite. We took part ... Read more

Great experience staying in this Ryokan. Stayed in a traditional Japanese room, very clean and quite comfortable. Staff were very friendly and attentive. We had a traditional Japanese breakfast one morning which was lovely. Location is good too.

The place is located in a quiet part of Kyoto but yet near to the train station and walking distance to the Nishiki market where there are plenty of good restaurants. The staff are also very friendly and helpful, giving us an introduction and showing us around upon our check-in. They even organized activities for guests such a origami class and traditional Japanese tea drinking which are fun.

We stayed in two rooms for four nights. The rooms were traditional with tatami mats and futon mattresses. The staff were the outstanding memory of this ryokan. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The rooms were a good size (8 tatami mats) but my partner had some trouble with hitting his head on the beam and doorway. He is 6 foot tall . The bathroom is very small but as expected in a ryokan. The hotel had a shared bath (seperate for men and women) and this was lovely with a view o... Read more

This is a great Japanese style hotel. Wonderful front desk staff, the room was perfect but you need to adapt to sitting & sleeping on the floor. Loads of closet space. The bathroom is small but effective. The public bathing area is a real treat for non Japanese. The best part if the whole time was the Japanese breakfast. Loads of interesting food, delightful staff. Great location near the city hall. Highly recommended.

Very friendly staff and a fantastic atmosphere. Wonderful to try origami and tea ceremony. Spacious rooms and great communal bath. Very good food. Perfectly situated in a quiet street but close to the shops and several sights.

This ryokan is a few subway stations (get off at Karasuma Oike) and a 5-10 min walk from Kyoto Station, so a little off the beaten track, but is otherwise well-situated and close to the restaurant/shopping areas, and bus routes eg to Arashiyama. The staff were excellent and a real highlight of the ryokan; very welcoming and helpful. There were a few activities they put on such as the tea ceremony and the origami - we had a go at the origami, which was fun. The free use of laundry was a real bon... Read more

My husband and I came here with friends and had a wonderful stay. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Kyoto. The Nishiyama's are so welcoming and their staff is very helpful and accommodating. The meals were traditional, beautiful and delicious. We were very pleased with our stay here and would come again on another trip to Japan! Thank you!

We wanted to stay at a traditional Japanese guest house, but wanted the ease of an easy check in, english speaking hosts and a comfortable room. These had all of the above plus more! Do opt to include the breakfast, that alone is an experience. You pick a time 7:30 - 8:30 and it will take 30-60 mins to eat. They include western style breakfast, but it's worth it trying the japanese. We tried the bath house one night which was very relaxing and also a good experience to have. The room was on the ...

Loved everything about this Ryokan except they have a policy that you are locked in the Ryokan at midnight. For me I didn't like it since back home it's 11am in the morning and I need to walk around. Would recommend if you don't mind being locked in or locked out if you are not back by midnight.

We wanted an authentic Japanese accommodation experience while still having a little western comfort and this guest house exceeded our expectations. The wonderful couple who own the Ryokan invite guests to a tea ceremony which is very pleasant. There is a small onsen downstairs that is the perfect way to end a busy day of sightseeing. The rooms are spacious, comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful with generally good English. The location is very near to Kyotoshiyakusho-Mae sub... Read more

We spent only one night here in the Ryokan and it was fine , I ve to say that for me is a little bit to expensive considering what they re offering. I mean , the bedroom was fine , the staff is very kind and speak english , the tradition Japanese breakfast huge and tasty and the tea cerimony in the morning very interesting , but 300 Euros is the same price ( even more ) of the cost of a 5 star hotel in Tokyo... so , all is fine , but I think 200 Euros should be a good price for this experience.

This is a wonderful ryokan, the service is just amazing and above (wonderful) Japan service culture. All staff goes to great lengths to be sure I was happy, comfortable, helped and super relaxed. The onsen is amazing and having at least a night in the traditional futon bed is a must :-)

This is a typical Japanese Guest house, so, if you are in Kyoto and want to experience living like a true Japanese this is a right place! You will sleep on tatami and wear traditional clothes provided in the Guest house. Every morning there is a tea ceremony and you can participate! I think this is a place not to miss! Very lovely!

This is a nice little ryokan in good location, only a walk away from the subway and a couple popular sights. They have Japanese style rooms and western style rooms. We opted for the Japanese room for two. It was rather small (not necessarily a problem) and could have used a bit of updating. The futon beds were really comfortable and every day you get bottled water and tea. There is also a public bath here which was AWESOME and relaxing. There's also a small garden and free events in the lobby ra... Read more

Opted for a traditional Japanese style room for 3 nights. Ryokan is well maintained and in a good location. The staff go out of their way to accommodate guests and made your stay very enjoyable. There are daily activities (free) such as tea ceremonies and sake tastings in the lobby. The onsen is a bonus, especially after a long day of walking and sightseeing. Ryokan also offers complimentary use of the washer/dryer. Staff are very hlepful in providing guidance and advice on where to go and what ... Read more

Slightly rude staff. Didnt allow me to leave my luggage througout the day. I asked to speak to the manager and was just laughed at. After asking numerous times to speak to the manager I was told I could leave my luggage till 6pm but no later then this. .very basic accomadation for the price, tiny shower which one cannot move in. Look elsewhere for authentic ryokan experience. Onsen is very small and shabby
