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!

Centrally Located Traditional Inn
Was a great stay and the amenities were fully available to us :spa, dining, room, and lounge. Staff spoke English well and were very helpful. We love the fact that they helped us with maps and even selling us bus passes at front desk! The rooms were large and for Westerners, definitely ask for a second mattress for the floor futon. Using the floor is very stiff for those who are used to a traditional mattress or memory foam bed. Didn't like that the bathrooms were small and old fashioned. Would fit a person 5' 3" but for anyone above 6 ft this was a challenge for the husband. Layout of the bathroom:room was difficult. The sinks were located on the opposite side of the room from the toilet&tub. This made getting ready in the morning awkward...Was MUCH better to just use the public bath instead of the inroom bath. Breakfast was included in our stay and was a good sized breakfast and tasty but traditional! Meals were different per day, so you really couldn't be bored. It is "kaiseki" style breakfast. Not the BEST I've had, but pretty darn good. You are served in the dining hall with other guests. Loved that you are loaned a yukata to wear around the onsen like a traditional Japanese inn.

Excellent ryokan experience!
We had a fabulous stay here!! The staff was incredibly friendly and accommodating. They even moved our stuff to our new room for the second night (we had booked 2 separate rooms). The room was clean and comfortable. We appreciated getting a taste of Japanese culture by staying here, and sleeping on the floor was more comfortable than expected! Also, the hotel is located near the Gojo subway station and bus stop, where you can catch various tourist sightseeing buses. Overall a wonderful experience.

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.

Very authentic room. Got a twin (2 futon) room and a little small as there isn’t much space for 2 or more luggages. Overall the staff service overcomes all.
