Fantastic Ryokan

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 2, 2010

We stayed few days in this fantastic Ryokan Shimizu Hotel which is 5-10 minutes walk from the central station. The place itself is traditional Ryokan, very comfortable room and friendly stuff. On our day of arrival they served us ice tea to the room which was very nice on a hot July summer day :)

Cheap, comfortable hole-in-the-wall

This is a small, traditional ryokan with modern facilities. Rooms are small (6 tatami mats), with a closet, mini-cube-fridge, hot water maker, tea set, TV (with less than a dozen stations--but, face it: if you're going to another country to watch TV, you're wasting your time and money), western toilet, sink, shower and soaking tub. Shampoo, soap, razor, towels, yukata, and toothbrushes and paste were provided.

Unique Quality: Shiseido haircare products included in 5250 Yen room rate.

Great Ryokan

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)

Newly built ryokan made mostly of Japanese cedar. About a five minute walk from the JR Kyoto station. Very nice! Unfortunetly, the fact that all the staff spoke pretty good English, made me lazy with my Japanese! The service here could not be beat! Thanks ***oshi! And there was a really nice bath that could be reserved privately, all rooms though, did have private baths and toilets. There is however a midnight curfew, so those looking exclusively for nightlife might want to consider a hotel. Oh, and they only accept yen.
