Traditional Japanese Experience”

This ryokan is amazing! The location was very conveniently located. There is a gorgeous shrine right next door. The room was spectacular. I felt like I was in the edo period of Japan. There is a en suite that features an amazing bamboo tub. I was worried that there was only the public bath. The futon was very comfortable. We also had a view of a little side garden. It was amazing. The facilities are very quiet and private. However, I think that the charm behind Gion Hatanaka is the staff. The women here feel like your mother. They are very caring, nice, and knowledgeable. my sister and I felt like we were at home. The woman, who helped us for our stay, was beyond hospitable and attentive. You will not regret your time here. Everything you need is in the rooms and you will experience real Japanese culture.

Fantastic Ryokan in Kyoto”

Gion Hatanaka was nothing but amazing. We stayed for 1 night, and from the moment we arrived, the staff at Gion Hatanaka was nothing more than accommodating and fantastic! They held our bag both before check-in and after check-out. They brought our bags to our room, and our room attendant was absolutely amazing. We opted for the dinner and Japanese breakfast, which was fantastic, plus they even asked us if we had food preferences! Dinner and breakfast are mainly seafood based, and quite filling. We also had easy access to some of the main temples and shrines in the area. We used the public baths, which were very relaxing, and had them all to ourselves. We had a wonderful staff, and will definitely return and stay again! Thank you again!

It was our honeymoon and we were treated wonderfully by the staff. Check in was easy and they let us keep our bags there before and after check in so we could make the most of Kyoto. The room was very traditional but still very clean and comfortable. We were given very comfortable Japanese loungewear both for night time and day time (2 different outfits). We had a lot of fun here!

I could not find faults with this hotel. Receptionists spoke fluent English but the staffs could not speak English. However their hospitality was superb.

Traditional Inn”

We stayed here for one night to have a truly authentic, traditional Japanese experience. The staff were very lovely and it was fun sleeping on futons, using the hot tubs and eating at low tables. We opted for the evening meal and breakfast. These meals were exquisitely presented but we found the textures and taste of most of the food too challenging for our palates even though we usually like any cuisine. The hotel is in the Gion area where you can walk to some fascinating temples and the Geisha area

Although somewhat nearby the Ginza district, it was still difficult to get to with luggage from closest metro station.

Even though we requested for a massage, it would have been great for them to describe how the massage would be done?
