Five Nights of Bliss

Posted May 28, 2014 on Hotels.com
We had enjoyed a Kaiseki dinner here with a group in May, 2010, and wanted to come back to Kyoto and spend more time. We stayed in the Hanare (the Satsuki Cottage, a separate, traditional Japanese building) for five nights. You sleep on futons, they fill up the wood bath every afternoon, and you can wear your Yukata to dinner. They fed us a Kaiseki (chef's whim) breakfast each morning and a Kaiseki dinner each evening. Every meal was different! The staff were incredibly attentive and polite, and we twice got to chat with the owner, Kyoko Nakamura, who was so gracious. We even got to meet the chef! You are removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, it's easy to grab a taxi, walk to a bus line, or do what we did most days and walk the kilometer or two to the nearest temple.

Very nice but expensive traditional hotel

Posted Oct 21, 2013
Pros: Everything, the room, the garden, the staff (though most with limited English), the privacy, the main house, the views...
Cons: Reasonably priced "western" breakfast - charged the full Japanese breakfast for two toasts and a pot of tea.
Location: It was a bit out of the way.
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.

Wonderful stay in a traditional ryokan

Posted May 14, 2012
Pros: Tradtional Japanese bath in the room
Location: Quiet residential neighborhood
My wife and I wanted to stay at a traditonal Japanese hotel and we found Ryokan-Yoshida sanso to be the perfect accomodation. This ryokan combines modern conveniences such wifi internet connection and flat screen tv with the traditional Japanese features such futon beds and in-room onsen. I would highly recommend to reserve the room with a meal plan since the hotel is located in a residential area with no nearby restaurants.
