    Lovely staff and lots of nice extras

    Amazing find in Kyoto. This was our second stay in a ryokan and we weren't disappointed. The rooms and amenities are fabulous. We loved our tatami room and the onsen was great. What really sets this place apart from other accomodations is the friendly staff who really make your stay special. Lots of little things like a welcome afternoon tea, tea sets availble for the room and the offer of handwarmers when were were on out way out on a cold evening :)

    Look forward to coming home after a long day

    Ryokufuso is such a welcoming stay that we look forward to coming back after a long day of walking around. The best part is the public onsen (which is empty most of the time). Rooms were traditional but yet comforting and fits the 4 of us just nicely with our luggages. Service was great, especially housekeeping - refilling our snacks and changing our towels every day. Amenities, we could use the washing machine for free, but dryer requires 100 Yen for 30 mins. Location and access is perfect! We only had to pay a short 5 mins taxi to transport our luggage from Kyoto station, but other than that, it was so easy to walk to Kyoto station and take trains from Kyoto station to Inari station/Kurama or buses to Arashiyama. Convenience store and a really nice Soba shop (招福亭) is just within 5 mins walk. Staff here is really friendly. Would highly recommend this place to stay when you are in Kyoto.

    Terrific breakfast. Really nice people; they were helpful in telling us how to get around. I'm sensitive to the kind of "othering" that can happen when people perform traditional for western audiences, but this was low key and interesting. When we arrived we were given tea and "traditional" treats, the room has a dressing/sleeping gown with instructions about how to wear it (including gender differentiation; one concern with the performance of the traditional is that it supports stereotypes that the "other" is less gender egalitarian than "we" are), and there are futons and chairs on the floor. My 9-year old really enjoyed wearing the gown and sitting on the floor. He wanted to stay longer and if I had been able I would have gladly stayed longer myself.

    Everything about our stay was excellent. The friendly staff, the fun Japanese style room, the yukata was a joy for all of us, and the public bath. All fun and delightful. Would 100% recommend this hotel in the future.

    Above and beyond hospitality!

    Great place to stay in Kyoto! Roughly a 10 minute walk to the nearest metro station and fairly close from Kyoto station via cab. Futons are comfortable. Room is overall clean. The hospitality at this ryokan is above and beyond . For the hospitality alone, I would highly recommend this ryokan!

    Basic no frills accommodation. Staff try their vest to assist with questions vut sometimes impeded by language issues. Would be good if the male and female onsen is switched daily so guests can enjoy both.
