This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Well first things first... I STRONGLY DO NOT recommend this Ryokan to anyone. The hospitality is pathetic, no cleanliness, no drinking water (gotta fill it from the bathroom and drink... yucks!!), its too small and no ventilation at all!! you would be surprised if sunshine gets to your room.
Coming to the beds, it was like you have been given rocks for pillows.
The cupboads are too tight, my wife's nails broke trying to open them.
The most important thing which pisses you off is that they close the Ryokan doors at 11:00 PM so you cannot enter after 11:00 PM. Common now... what are you paying for when you cannot enter your room whenever you want!
And of course for Non-Japanese, they struggle to understand English, the receptionist Lady there is like if you do not know japanese is not my problem! And man she's got tonnes of attitude...
The only good thing which I can think good about this is Location, it is right in front of Kyoto Station... Thats about it!
