Total ripoff!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 14, 2013

This place is horrible. It was outrageously expensive to stay at this place for a start, considering that all you get is a patch of nothing on a tatami mat. The futon beds were the most uncomfortable thing I've ever slept on. We had no windows in our room so we basically had to sleep and eat in the same claustrophic prison. The public bath was a bit disgusting and not at all hygenic. The bathroom was dank and mouldy. There is no privacy in this place. The wireless was slow and we couldn't connect from our rooms. Even without them ripping us off an extra $200 it was already a horrible experience. On top of all that, they also took an unauthorised $200 from our credit card. This place is run by thieves.

Unique Quality: They made an unauthorised transaction of $200 from our credit card. Will definitely not recommend this place.

Directions: Nice restaurant across the street

This ryokan is the place to go if you want the 'authentic' japanese inn experience. They are very traditional here, and there were moments when we felt that we had slipped back in time. The owners and staff of Motonago are also some of the nicest and kindest people you could hope to meet. Our baby was sick in Kyoto and they looked after our older children while we were at the hospital. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and even though we were only there for 4 nights, by the time we left we felt like old friends. It is in a perfect location for exploring the Higashiyama district. The price included breakfast and dinner, and the meals were beautiful! The baths here are the old-fashioned wooden type, and steaming hot!

Directions: A few minutes walk from Yasaka Shrine
