8/10 Very good

Nice location and kind staff but seemed inexperienced and didn't speak too much English. Not many places to eat nearby unless you're eating at the ryokan or at their steakhouse across the street (which you need to make a reservation for).

Lovely hotel, great location right on the river and walking distance from the station(s) and many attractions, restaurants and shops. Would definitely recommend this hotel to others.

Wonderful experience. Beautiful Japanese style rooms with tatami, really spacious. Small balcony overlooks the beautiful scenery of the Uji river. Great amenities and complimentary snacks and tea. Staff was extremely helpful, and their service was fantastic. We arrived early and they kept our luggage for us. When we came back later they had already transferred our luggage to our room. They also arranged a member of staff to show us our room. There are 2 hot baths available for all guests. Hot baths are available until 11:30 pm and 6-10am the next morning--a great way to relax after a long day of travelling! We chose the traditional Japanese style breakfast package. This included many small courses such as grilled fish, tofu hot pot, miso soup and pickled vegetables. Guests can help themselves to rice, tea porridge and orange juice. Overall, a wonderful experience! The only downside is that the hotel is a solid 15-20 minutes walk from the rail station (although still a walkable distance).

4/10 Fair

This hotel needs some major upgrades, and more helpful staff. Other than the shuttle driver, and breakfast ladies the rest of the staff needs some training in customer service. If your going to charge customers upwards of $500 per night, please at least bring their luggage to their room. Pros: Hotel picks you up at the train station if you arrive before 5:30 p.m. Breakfast and breakfast staff Nice view to the river Onsen on site (not natural hot springs) Cons: Staff comes off as fake friendly Hallways reek of cigarette smoke Outdated facilities Thin walls tiny elevator Kaiseki dinner portions are too small, and very soup heavy

Our room faced the river - which we could hear even through the closed window! Beautiful views, very peaceful area. Excellent traditional Japanese breakfast. On site public bath was very clean, quiet - and very hot! Don't stay in too long ;) Excellent customer service and such an interesting, beautiful area. Looking forward to coming again someday!
