Great japanese style hotel in the city.
Posted Jul 30, 2016
It's a Ryokan-style hotel with traditional tatami floors and attentive room-service staff. I haven't been to a Ryokan before so I can't comment on how authentic it is, but as a foreigner visiting Kyoto it was a pleasant cultural experience. Personally, I found sleeping on the tatamis comfortable, just bear in mind the thin futons are on the firm side. Japanese-style breakfast was a bit expensive, but worth it considering it's served in your room by diligent staff and features many small Japanese dishes, mostly savory. It's on a small street in downtown Kyoto, so don't expect the picturesque gardens of the countryside inns, but it's a nice neighbourhoods with great little shops and small restaurants.
