Our family of 5 (kids 6-9) stayed for one night at Gion Shinmonso and it was a great cultural immersion experience. We really wanted the ryokan experience while we were in Japan, but they are so expensive. I was happy to find Gion Shinmonso, which is very authentic and located right in Gion. The staff spoke decent English, which was very helpful. The rooms are tatami floored and traditional. Since most of their rooms are smoking rooms, I worried about this, but our room smelled fine. We ... Read more

Stayed here for 2 nights Staff very helpful and polite Smoking being allowed in the hotel lobby and current construction work on the hotel wall detracted from an otherwise nice ryokan Our room window was taped over with opaque wrap and scaffolding covers the outside of the hotel Also it's quite noisy during the day though that didn't really affect us as we were out most of the day They have a public bathroom downstairs if you have a room without a private bathroom Our private bathroom was quite...

We stayed here for 2 nights (2 adults and 2 kids, ages 8 and 10) to experience a traditional Ryokan, and what a unique experience it was. Having never stayed in one before we didn't know what to expect, but absolutely loved it. Do not expect to go here with many of the comforts of Western civilization, however, if you have an open mind and want to experience the old Japanese culture, this is a wonderful way to do it. While I'm sure there are higher end Ryokans, this was perfectly comfortable ... Read more

This Ryokan is very close to most attractions and night life. Geishas wondering everywhere, any age, it feels like the old ages. We stay at the triple with toile/sink room, beds weren't as comfortable as other places we've been in the past, this one had only a single futon, I used to have double futon. Every morning y back hurts. They do have a nice spa bathroom to clean up and they have a private bathroom (old) in our floor. We did not pay for the Geisha night, we regretted, when we finally dec...

We were not 100% sure when we booked this hotel because of other reviews but it turned out to be wonderful. The hotel is a bit older but everything is maintained well so the age isn't a problem. It's a traditional Japanese hotel so you have tatami and you don't sleep in a bed but that's part of the experience. Our room had a private toilet and sink but to shower we had to either use the common bath area or the private shower room on our floor. This was fine and gave us a chance to wear the cute ...

We stayed for one night and had two days in Kyoto as the majority of our time was spent in Tokyo. We didn't use the public baths so cannot comment however we stayed in a traditional ryokan style room. There is green tea and kimono and slippers for you and an excellent bag of toiletries. The staff come in at tea time and make up the bed (futon) and we really enjoyed this experience and actually slept really well. This hotel is very well located. The traditional Japanese breakfast was very colourf... Read more

When you travel to Japan the way the Kimono, unveils itself, under the occidental mask is when you touch Kyoto. The only way to live the vibe of Japan is by feeling the tatami under your skin and sleeping in a futon. At first, the sensation is new and not that easy to digest, but after a while, even the pink rooms and dirty walls, look homey. The idea is enveloping but it needs refurbishing, painting and does not feel clean. If tradition survives, it needs to go with the flow of things. The fabr... Read more

We spent 3 nights in this Ryokan during our trip in Japan. The location is very good, in the Gion quarter , which is the gheishas'area. The hotel is very touristic in comparison with other ryokans where we slept in. It is old, needs to be refreshed, the futon are very hard and also the pillows are old and hard in comparison with the same type of bed somewhere else. Besides this the toilette in the bedroom was very old and we could smell urine. The people at the reception were very very gentle bu... Read more
