Ryokan Sawaya Honten, Kyoto
Very Good8.0
Nice location, friendly staff and quiet room.
It was our first and second night in Japan so we were more than a little tired. The inn was very quiet and comfortable. We did not purchase the meals so can't comment. The Japanese bath was lovely!

We had a very relaxing stay. The ryokan is convenient to shopping and the sights in Higashiyama

Ryokan Sawaya Honten, Kyoto
I would recommend this place.
Very nice place, good food (breakfast), clean and comfortable. The only minor issue was that the internet speed could have been better at times. Other than that I was absolutely happy with everything.
