"Summer in Kyoto"
Our family of four (two kids aged 11 and 15) enjoyed a fantastic week at Gagakuan. Our host Saki was very responsive from the initial reservation until we departed. She even dropped off a delicious birthday cake for my daughter who celebrated her birthday the day before we arrived. This is not a traditional hotel room but a traditional Japanese house in a very nice neighbourhood. The house itself is very well equipped and a fantastic way to experience living in a traditional family home. Although more than 100 years old and very traditional, it has been equipped with a number of modern touches that enhance the stay. Our two kids were absolutely fascinated with the house and the entire environment. For our purposes, it was ideally situated between Kyoto station and central Kyoto. The Gojo subway stop and the bus stop are both less than a five minute walk from the house. This allows you to easily access the public transportation system to all of the wonderful temples. We also took side trips to Osaka, Nara and a day trip to Hiroshima using our Japan rail passes. Except for a few hot days (typical for Kyoto in the summer), we had a perfect time in Kyoto thanks to our great stay at Gagakaun and the kind generosity of Saki. We hope we get another chance to return to Kyoto and see the things we missed this visit and stay here again.

Hotel Grand Bach

Long walk from station underground to street exit. Then 2 mins at 1st right side street v undistinguished entrance !! We had std room which was v.small. We struggled with 2 small backpacks there was a folderable suitcase stand but no space to erect it ! BUT apart from that the room facilities were fantastic - hi tech shower unit, multi function toilet & all exceptionally clean !!! Nice touch on return after day out clothes etc left drying were where we placed them & a card left saying that they were left in place after cleaning as they did prefer not to handle clients clothes etc. Staff very courteous helpful & obliging. Complimentary drinks & supper avilable in dining room was a welcome surprise. Buses stop on main road so mins from local transport.

"Traditional and pleasant Japanese experience"
We are a husband, wife and young teen girl who came to Kyoto by bullet train from Tokyo. We were very impressed with the attentive service and the facilities of this ryokan. We were amazed by the exquisite breakfasts each morning! They were slightly different each day but always included some familiar items (like fruit, eggs, and rice) and several Kyoto specialties (pickled plums or vegetables, tofu and broiled fish). We found everything delicious and always started our days with full bellies. The shared (gender specific) baths are simple but an addictive way to sooth our tired bodies after a long day of sight seeing. The hosts were friendly and helpful. They had a solid grasp of English and were able to provide directions and recommendations of places to visit. As we expected of a traditional ryokan, rooms are sparse and storage space is limited--leave your bulky bags behind. However, futons were very comfortable and the room was spacious enough for the 3 of us. We didn't spend much time in the room as there were so many things to see in Kyoto. The hotel is located close to Gion, market and several temples and shrines.

The setting by the river is lovely. The staff are extremely helpful. We stayed in an Akebono room that was simply beautiful. The bath was huge and everything we could have wished for.

"Nice Ryokan"
The rooms were quite attractive, the Japanese breakfasts were excellent, the food was fresh and tasty and there was plenty of it. Some things I struggled with were, not having a bed to flop down on in the middle of the afternoon after a long walk in the heat. One had to wait until the beds were laid out at around 5 pm. After 4 days of sleeping on a thin futon on the floor I was hanging out for a western bed. But I am 60 and not as flexible as I used to be. I really struggled with sitting on the floor for breakfast. I became so uncomfortable the second time round that I hardly ate any breakfast. I had to go and find a bakery. I feel a bit uncomfortable here as I do not wish to diss the hotel. The staff were very helpful. though some had rudimentary english. As a genuine Japanese ryokan the place was very good. as accommodation for a soft westerner it left quite a bit to be desired.
