Traditional ryokan close to all the action

Posted Oct 30, 2013
Very traditional place to stay. Enjoyable. Nicer than a modern hotel.

Yoshi-Ima Roykan in Kyoto is a peaceful respite

Posted Sep 7, 2013
Pros: Peaceful, clean, comfortable
Location: Lots of restaurants, shops , bars, nice walk along the river, easy to reach numerous temples as well as museums all on foot.
THe location near to the Gion region and the subway and train stations (not JR Kyoto) make if a great base for touring Kyoto - best done on foot, so as to better see all the beautiful temples and intresting shops - that are happy to welcome visitors, even if the language is only Japanese.

Authentic Ryokan in the very heart of Gion

Posted Jul 19, 2013
Pros: Almost everything, but especially the fantastic location and authentic atmosphere
Cons: Wallpaper in room, but this is not a major issue
Location: Walk by historical streets in Gion. Cross the river for an evening drink in Pontocho. Visit the nearby temples.
A great welcome, always with a smile. A nice immersion into traditional Japanese cultural. Helpful and flexible staff. A place not to miss when in Kyoto.

Delightful Yoshiima

Posted May 21, 2013
Pros: The bath, summer kimono, Japanese breakfast and the terrific location.
Cons: Loved it all.
Location: Superb.
We loved our stay at Yoshiima. It provided a wonderful traditional Japanese style accommodation experience. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms, bathrooms and private garden were delightful. The Ryokan was also situated in a fabulous location of Kyoto. It enhanced our Kyoto experience.
