    The staff was terrific and the dinner/breakfast is a must do.

    Great stay In Kyoto
    The ryokan was amazing, first time to stay. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The only downside of it. Would be the fact that it’s far away front kyoto station. Making moving around Kyoto a bit difficult. Only means of transportation would be either Taxi from the hotel or you can take the bus number 6 that comes every 30-60 minutes and the station is very close to the hotel. Their onsen was also very clean and nice.

    Amazing staff members, wonderful food, and great service. The only negative thing was the unreliable internet connection. Overall, we were extremely happy with the hotel.

    Surrounded by zen
    I absolutely loved staying at Nenrimbo! Especially the customer service and hospitality made me feel welcomed and special. I arrived after 8pm and had to take a cab ( a few minutes away ) to go to a nearby convenience store as the hotel is located in a little bit remote area and it’s dark around. But for those who are looking for a place to regain inner zen and be mindful, this is THE place to be. I’ll certainly be staying here again on weekends.

    We took a taxi from our first hotel to reach here as was a bit far from the city. It has a very beautiful garden, we got a room with the garden mountain view, was just amazing. It is very quiet so we had some peaceful time. We stayed for a day, the time frame they have 3pm -10am might be a short for a day trip, but we were ok about that. The main feature was their dinner and breakfast, which I recommend to experience! It was grand and so unique. If you are up for Japanese experience it is a must!

    A truly magical experience. Well worth the cost
    Decided to try a ryoken experience and wasn't disappointed. The room was traditional Japanese. Large and comfortable. First thing that sprung out was no bed but that's made up for you during dinner. The dinner was exquisite. So many courses in a degustation menu. Lots of sushimi soups and rice. Some meat. You won't go hungry and wine, Saki, beer reasonably priced. Futon made up on arrival back to your room and it was surprisingly comfortable. Breakfast was Japanese again. Didn't recognise .most food but a pleasant change. An expensive night but when in Rome.. or kyoto, try it
