Superb 9.2 From 74 reviews

Very Good 8.0
You get to wear a cool bathrobe.
It's a traditional inn so its small, but it's a pretty good experience. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. They have a public bath that looks like few people use. It's pretty relaxing and part of the experience so I'd def recommend giving it a shot. If you have tattoos its no problem using the bath either. It's also very close to the Kyoto Imperial Palace and the small restaurants in the area are pretty good too. If you're not fond of small living quarters or sleeping on a futon then your better off at hotel for an long stay. However, I would still recommend to stay here at least 1 night for the traditional inn experience.

The staff at the Nishiyama Ryokan are excellent and incredibly helpful. Unfortunately that is where it ends. We had just arrived from another ryokan in Aizu which had been great and we were looking forward to our stay at the Nishiyama Ryokan in Kyoto. Unfortunately the bathroom in the room we were given smelled very strongly of sewer gas. Also there were a lot of small flies in the room. Whether this was associated with the problem in the bathroom we do not know. It was later in the evening when we arrived and we spent a restless night because of the smells and flies. By 5am we contacted through the on-line chat service and they contacted the hotel on our behalf. We were informed by that there were no vacant rooms available and that the hotel would not give us a refund. offered us a $100 voucher for future bookings to stay in the room. In spite of the lack of a refund we decided to leave and made a booking at another hotel. A staff member then showed up at our room telling us that they had indeed prepared another room for us. By this time we had decided that we did not want to remain at the hotel and had packed. When we got down to the lobby with our luggage the staff were very kind and gave us a full refund even for the night we had stayed. We cannot fault the staff in anyway, they were superb and hopefully the problem we had was limited to the room we had, but it is difficult to imagine how this property gets the rating it has.
