Quiet little Ryokan in a fantastic location”

Location, Staff, Rooms

The Kyoto Higashiyamasou is in an excellent location. The staff was some of the friendliest staff I've ever dealt with at a hotel, which is quite typical in Japan. The only negative is there is no restaurant at the hotel and the hours of the restaurants nearby as quite sporadic. Other than that, the stay was great!

Excellent stay at a traditional Japanese inn”

Comfort of room, employees, and location

I stayed at this hotel for one night in November. The employees at the hotel were extremely welcoming and friendly. The room itself was very comfortable, with a tatami room as well as a side room with 2 chairs, table, sink, mini fridge, and a hot water pot. Toiletries were laid out above the sink and yukatas/robes were provided for use while at the hotel. The bathrooms were very clean. I also used the shared bath/hot tub - it was also maintained very well. It looked like I was the first to use it for the night, and no one else came in while I was there. It is relatively small, though. Overall, it was a great experience for a ryokan.

A stay that is one of a kind”

I am hard pressed to say 3 things. But I would agree that location within Gion is a plus, Room is reasonable. Requested breakfast is not too bad.

Service is barely satisfactory. While the counter staff is very courteous like all Japanese, there is no genuineness to help. When I realized that I have under booked my stay by one night (a good test of a hotel's helpfulness), the initial response was we cannot help you. At most, we can provide a list of nearby hotels and their contact numbers. Huh?

Stayed for one evening here with my 9 year old daughter- her first time in Japan. Everything was exactly how I wanted- close to main area of sightseeing and JR line, safe for female travelers, and wonderful Nihon-no hospitality. Please choose the nihon-style breakfast if you are a Westerner- it is wonderful. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

Kyoto is very enjoyable and highly recommended.”

Traditional, friendly, clean

Stay at this Ryokan was average. We paid far too much for what we got - and would prefer a standard business hotel the next time. While the traditional ambiance and set up are interesting, the lack of private bathroom, lack of in-room internet, no breakfast included in a $255/night rage (!) are all major put-offs. Worth one night for experiencing the traditional "sleeping on the Tatami floor"...but definitely not worth longer stays.
