Great self contained apartment fully function kitchen with fridge and stove top. Washing marine and clothes line on balcony. Good access too east Kyoto and Gion shijo station and lots of sights close by if you have spare time. Staff are hiding as the hotel is automated but a quick email and immediately had a response, and offer to print out QR code for main door plus let us drop bags off before check in. And would very much recommend The full house cafe. next street over and handy shop very close. Love hotel next door though, at least taxis are regular. Good laugh

"Close to everything- really in the middle of Gion"
Quiet- yet steps away the bustle of tourists on one of the most popular streets in Gion. we got a large room with a huge bathroom/bath and shower area and the beds were comfortable. My only complaint was the AC leaked on the carpet (luckily, where we did not walk) and the room would get hot and stuffy in the mornings despite the AC being on. Not a big deal though- everything else was great.

We stayed here a few nights. We were unaware that the bathrooms were communal but secured an ensuite at least for a night. Typical modern tatame room. All clean. More like a hostel with family rooms. Nice relaxed and helpful staff. An ofuru bath, was rather small had to be booked and was non too hot.
The best thing was position. Very close to Kyomisudera etc and a stroll to the Gion and pontocho.

This ryokan, in the heart of Giin, was an excellent one. The staff were all pleasant and polite, especially if you can speak some Japanese. The rooms were in excellent condition an, and while I personally wasn't able to eat their breakfast or dinner while I was there, they looked delicious. The internet they offered was respectable: not fast but not slow either. Finally, the sento they had on the first floor was excellent.
As for the traditional aesthetics, I think this ryokan did very well. All the staff were wearing very nice spring kimono, which were appropriate for the season. The rooms each had three ikebana: one under the shoe box at the entrance, one in the tokonoma, and one on a side table. Of course, they had a yukata for each guest available as well as towels for the sent. It was all very nice.
As far as complaints go, the only one I have is that the futons were a little short for me. Of course I'm a big American guy so I find it hard to fault them for that.

The whole design of the capsule hotel has been taken to a new level. LCD HD digital TV, high speed wifi, you name it. One problem is since the elevator is in a public area, it's a must to wear the in house pajama to be identified as capsule hotel guest vs walk in sauna customers. Overall is a nice capsule hotel experience.
