Amazing stay! The room was massive, clean, and comfortable. I highly recommend ordering a meal for at least dinner, and additionally breakfast if you have the time.

Nice, if expensive, ryokan in great location
Great location, pleasant accommodations, great English-speaking staff. It‘s a little expensive for an older (ie slightly run down) Ryokan, but it was a very nice experience. You are definitely paying for the location, which is fantastic if you want easy access to the Gion area and Kawaramachi. Not sure if the Ryokan was just incredibly quiet or if it was empty during our stay in late January. We had the Kaiseki dinner one night and enjoyed it. Largely seafood, so if that isn’t your cup of tea it might not suit you. The public bath was also very nice.
