A Great Hotel That Is Reasonably Priced!
The Matsubaya Ryokan deserves nothing but praise! The staff was very helpful and kind. I loved the fact that they spoke English and could recommend places to visit and the best way to get to the Kansai Airport. My room was extremely clean and comfortable. The location was very quiet and centrally located. This hotel also has a decent and reasonable western-style breakfast. If given the opportunity to visit Kyoto again, then I would definitely stay at Matsubaya Ryokan.
