Good 6.0
Decent but over priced
Had a little hiccup at check in, but overall a pleasant stay. Food was better on the first morning than the second. The sort of private onsen opens all night which is a nice touch. A little far from Kyoto city center.

I can’t speak more highly of this place. The staff were gorgeous and so helpful. We’d come from a beautiful hotel in Kyoto (Daiwa Royal Grande) which was superb but we enjoyed the change of pace. Would highly recommend this place for location, and the lovely staff. Ryokan was charming.

Love it so much. The staff was really nice and helpful, they provided us local information such as where we could wander after dinner. The food and service were also excellent at a reasonable price. The Gion area is fabulous I would definitely live in this area again for my future trip to Kyoto. There is a crab shabushabu restaurant which is also worth trying. BTW bonus credits: I had left my contact lens in the room, but surprisingly they kept it for me at the reception.
