Yamadaya Ryokan, Kyoto
Generally OK but a bit underwhelming
This ryokan is a fine place to stay for a short trip. The staff are very friendly and the room was fine but it neither has the amenities of a modern hotel nor the real charm of a classic ryokan. I'd heard lots about the amazing hospitality in ryokans but here it was good but basic (e.g. I understood that often rooms will be set up with the table for tea when you arrive then later the beds will be laid out, here the beds were ready laid out and there was just a kettle for you to make your own tea if you wanted to). The location is very good, close to the station and a subway route, walkable to Gion too.

Very Good8.0
Comfortable stay, but too expensive for the services. Also very strict about time to return at night and checkout. Were pointing out even delays of 20 mins in checkout.
