Good 6.0
Convenient but basic
Convenient location -ryokan is a bit rundown. Breakfasts are good, but the rooms are average, staff is ok but not stellar. Rooms and bathrooms are very basic.
Hany, us3 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
Friendly staff, spacious room.
We didn't know the hotel has 2 different towers (just 1 min walk away) and we turned up at the wrong one. Staff were friendly to show us to the right tower, even helped with our suitcase. Place is dated but we like that. The breakfast is awesome! The location is a 15 min walk from Sanjo-dori and it's easier to hop on buses with bus stops located within 3 min walk from the hotel....6 min walk with a 4-year-old.

The room and breakfast is excellent. The breakfast buffet is worth the money. The location is a little bit out of the City center and the Main Train Station and the Subway, you can get the bus with one day pass around the city.

Very nice experience staying there. Everyone was so friendly. The location is great too. Thought the facility is a little bit old. But we are OK with that.
