Ishicho, Kyoto
Great amenities in a charming traditional package
A great balance of the traditional country feel, but with the needed amenities to feel comfortable and supported.

Smitten by the welcome sign at entrance. Hotel seems old but room was clean, spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was sumptuous too. However , very disappointed by the Onsen (public bath in the hotel ) it was closed at 9 am when we were awake n didn't get a chance to use as we checked in late ( around 10 pm) and my request for late check out was not even considered. After all, it was in my consideration when I chose this Ryokan. When asked why the Onsen was closed, we were told that it was for cleaning and in preparation for use for a group of students !!

A nice hotel but language skills don't exist
The stay was nice overall. Japanese-style rooms, japanese-style breakfast (with black tea and coffee for Western tourist), hot baths... quite a pleasant experience. The only exception was the receptionists. Quite cold and seem unfriendly - but I guess it all stems from their inability to speak English. All in all 6 out of 10!
