I participated in a conference last week at the ICC, Kyoto. This hotel is located at a 2 minute walking distance from the ICC, just across the street. My main consideration while booking this hotel had been this reason. When I reached the hotel, I was struck by its extraordinary ambience, the quiet neighborhood, the excellent staff and food facilities, besides the fact that it is actually very well connected to the Kyoto downtown and the Kyoto station through the subway (Karusima line). Ask for a mountain facing room, is available. It ensures that you have an excellent view of the morning sunrise over the hills every morning! Wonderful view! The Christmas tree in the centre of the courtyard, and the soft music in the corridors the moment you stepped outside the room added a sense of comfort.
Located about 15 mins fro the bus stop the hotel will collect you free of charge.
Room was very spacious clean and tidy
You cook your own meal at the table but don't worry the supply very simple instructions. Great fun.
And yes as to be expected for a traditional inn, you do have to remove your shoes on entering and making up your futon bed. It's what it's all about.
Hotel is old and quite worn around the edges, with old fashioned rooms and hard, uncomfortable beds. Location is ok (it overlooks one of Kyoto's many temples) but a bit of a hike from all metro stations (incl. Kyoto Station) and Gion. Service was good (to be expected in Japan).

Busy weekend in Kyoto, limited choice. A vacancy appeared at this nice Ryokan. We had the cottage next to the main building which is like a suite with a bedroom, a living room and a private bathroom with tub apart from a large closed balcony and a "private" garden.
