Grandsons first trip

Clean, comfortable, old world charm
We were very pleased with the Ryokan style room. The comfortable futons were laid out by staff at 7:30 pm, there were various size robes and slippers available in room. The public bath was clean and tasteful. The Japanese traditional breakfast was delicious, and added an old world charm to our whole experience. The staff speaks very little English but enough to patiently make our needs known. It was located in walmi g distance to the train station which made it easy to get around.We would definately stay there again.

Sanoya Hotel by Kyoto Station
We choose a Ryokan style room. It was very big and interesting with Tatami matts and sliding partitions. The service was fine and the staff were very friendly and helpfull. The authentic Japanese breakfast was a great experience. I would recommend for ryokan experience. The only negative feature was that there was a smell in the toilet area which was detectable when we entered the room.
