Kyoto for real
Amazing authentic experience with service that surpassed even the most prestigious 5 star hotels.

Walking distance to Gion.
Typical old style Japanese Ryokan. Little old (but what can you expect in Kyoto) and they have no laundry services.

We stayed for 3 nights and it was a wonderful experience! All the staff were super friendly, helpful, and considerate. We were welcomed by warm green tea and later received a dessert for our farewell. A delicious breakfast was also served every morning that made our stay so special. The room was clean and well-prepared. Their cypress hot tub was enjoyable too. It was also conveniently located just around the corner to a subway station. Staying at the Seikoro was definitely a highlight or our trip, and we would love to stay here again for our next trip to Kyoto!
