My family loves the residence. My wife likes the little kitchen and washing machine. My youngest daughter likes the cosiness. Everybody has their special corner.

"Location of hotel in city of historical sites."
Spent four days at Gagakuan, satisfied, although unexpected cold weather even in spring. Late sakura blooming, still managed to view some. Did not follow tour, rather venture on our own. Visited places of interest but unable to cover all due to insufficient time, maybe next time would to come again.

"Welcoming traditional Japanese accommodation"
This is a charming ryokan run by an industrious husband-and-wife team. The husband opens up at 6:30 AM; the wife locks the doors at 11:00 PM. Unless you’re a night-owl, this probably won’t be a problem. The building is old, but in very good repair and the rooms are clean and simple. No WiFi in the rooms, but there is access to a Kyoto City WiFi point in the foyer. (IMO, it adds to the ryokan experience to have no internet in the rooms.) The futons were comfortable, though made for a firm sleep, which might not be to all tastes. Breakfasts were delightful, and different each day, though the staff were only able to give us basis guidance because they had limited English and we had no Japanese skills, so we felt like we muddled through the traditional breakfast experience. Thoughtful touches like full-size umbrellas available to borrow in the foyer; shampoo, conditioner and bodywash in the bathrooms; free coffee and tea at any hour in the foyer.

Stayed for 5 nights in Kyoto. I loved the machiya! The house was large with several rooms, well equipped and very comfortably furnished. The location was also very good, with many major sites within easy walking distance and train and bus access was very convenient. Many good restaurants to eat nearby as well. I was there with my husband and 2 kids (4 and 6). The kids loved sleeping on the futon beds and being able to look out onto the little garden. They also loved how many doors there were to get outside, so that kept them occupied. We've travelled all over japan in the last year and these were by far the most comfortable beds we've stayed in as well. The staff was friendly and helpful and everything went very smoothly. The only negative I would offer is that the windows were all seemingly single pane and there was basically no noise protection from the outside. Though the road wasn't super busy, we could hear every car that drove by, even though the bedrooms were the farthest from the street. Overall though we had a wonderful time in this place and I would definitely stay there again.

"In Kyoto's old district-Gion, this ryokan is great"
Quiet at night, close to many beautiful temples and local cuisine. Walking to and from the bus is only 3 minutes and about a 10 minute walk to the subway gives visitors easy access to the whole of Kyoto. Staff is very helpful and friendly but their English is not great; expect to use your favorite translation app. Clean, quiet and a perfect example of a traditional Japanese ryokan, you can't go wrong here!

"Nice location, very small rooms"
I booked Japanese room with tatami mat and Japanese futon. I really wanted authentic experience. However, the room was on the third floor, and the window was facing the wall of the other building less than 2 feet away. It had a feeling of no window, I felt claustrophobic, and requested another room. I got a room on a higher floor with a nice window, but western style. (Request higher floor when making the reservation). The location is nice, rooms are clean, beds are comfortable. Rooms are very small and there is no closet, just couple of hangers on the hook. No place to put you luggage: if you put it somewhere, you cannot go around it. Music is playing in the hallways 9 am to 9pm. You can hear it in the rooms, but we were generally away all day, so it didn't bother us. Staff is very nice and try to help as much as they could. If you want to buy breakfast in the hotel, you need to order it a day before. But there are plenty of places around where you can have breakfast at half the price.

"Great location, near Kyoto Station. "
The hotel is a few minutes walk from Kyoto Station and several restaurants, shops and cafes. Rooms are spacious for Japanese standards. The only thing we did not like about the hotel is that you can hear some noises if your neighbors are loud, but not a major issue. The front desk staff is very helpful!
