It was inconvenient as it was far away from the city. The place was run down, toilets old, kitchen old, indoor "onsen" is just a bath tub.

Our stay at Ryokan Yamazaki was delightful. We stayed for 3 nights. The ryokan was clean and gorgeous! The staff took amazing care of us! It might not provide some of the more premium amenities, but definitely worth a consideration. Definitely consider the half-board option. The Kaiseki dinner was delicious! I would definitely recommend this ryokan especially for the stellar service! Just be warned that the ryokan is a little ways out. It's about 40 minute bus ride from Kyoto station. There's two bus stops within 5 minutes of the ryokan. We didn't really see it as a problem, but the extended amount of travel might be discouraging to some.

We stay one night, in mid of November. the garden is nice but we did not use it .The inside the ryokan was cold and not comfortable to sleep.

A bit far from the city. We didn’t expect it’s a hostel.
