Wonderful hotel. Amazing staff.”

The owner/manager definitely made this hotel the best. Absolute sweetest lady who went out of her way to ensure we (my husband, toddler and I) were always comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. The room we stayed in was more like a 1BR apartment - we had a living room, bedroom, giant bathroom, and two mini-balconies with gorgeous river views. Centrally located (short walk to train stations and attractions). Breakfast was included and delicious (you were given a choice between western and Japanese). Check-in was quick and easy and included a tour of the facilities and how to use the amenities in your room. I regret not taking advantage of the spa (included in stay) located on the first floor, but it looked lovely. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area!

Lots of space, beautiful view, perfect location, but easy on the budget”

It’s hard to find good hotels at this price. We wanted a chill overnight stay in Arashiyama, after all the walking and sightseeing/food tripping we did in Kyoto and Osaka. This room was perfect for that — we had a huge living space, huge room, huge bathroom (with a jacuzzi/tub), and a very beautiful and peaceful view of the river. Right at the heart of Arashiyama with a view of the Katsura river, a 2-5min walk to nearby bus stops and train stations, 2-min walk to the monkey park, 5-min walk to the bamboo forest, but away from the crowds of tourists. A perfect cap to end our Kansai trip :) Staff were very friendly and accommodating. Check in was supposed to be at 4pm, but they accepted our early check in when we arrived before 1pm. We were also able to leave our bags the next day after our check out, so we could still roam around the area. Bento breakfast was so-so (would’ve preferred a more traditional home-cooked teishoku), but it was all good and worth it :)

Best value for money. ”

It’s the kind of hotel that you’ve to leave your shoes at the reception. Very friendly, helpful and understanding. Helped with my luggage transfer. Gave me facial product samples to use for the day when the luggage carrying all my things only arrived the next day. My room was huge, all it needs is a kitchen and laundry area for me to feel like home. The hotel also has an outdoor bath. Location wise, it’s about 5 mins walk to the main busy area, I prefer this way. It’s also around 5 mins walk from the Arashiyama station.

It was a great way to introduce Japanese culture to my son as this is his first trip. This was definitely a good choice. It is quite a distance from JR station but we later found a nearer station (Randen) which was much closer. The rooms was clean and large and the breakfast bento was great!

Loved this accommodation in Arashiyama. The location was very close to the Togetsukyo Bridge, the shops, restaurants, and walkable to the temples and bamboo forest. Perfect for momiji viewing! Just check out the bed when you first arrive to see if it is too hard - then ask for a mattress pad. The staff is very accommodating!

Traditional Japanese experience with Western bed”

This hotel is well worth the price, especially for the space, roughly 6 rooms in total counting all the small ones: tub/shower, entry way, toilet closet, sink room, large Japanese style dining area, large bedroom with two double mattresses pushed together. The view is magnificent: river and mountains. We had a rainbow on our last morning. The staff were so super friendly, even when our heater did not work. They supplied us with a space heater and we were fine. That’s why I gave only 4* on the facilities. Shoes off at the door; slippers and robes in the room. This hotel surpassed our expectations. We would definitely return.

Fantastic location, great staff service”

The rooms were huge by Japan standards, and very well located. A short stroll to the bridge and all other attractions. We enjoyed the great service by the hotel staff as well. They could not speak English but tried their very best with translation apps to communicate with us. We tried also their breakfast bento - nothing too special if you have already been in Japan for awhile, but for newcomers this can be quite interesting.

Cons 1) Will be good if there’s more hooks in the toilet to hang bath towels, my personal toiletries. 2) Mattress is too hard that I could feel the spring when laying down. Is like I’m laying on the floor. Asked for extra mattress the next day. surprisingly the staff left 2 spare blue mattresses and bed sheet on the floor and we need to set up the mattresses with bedsheet ourselves. Pros 1) good location from JR line, Lawson and stay away from tourists.

I had some difficulty with the website, and ended up making a mistake with my reservation. The staff was very helpful and rectified the situation. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. I was able to see the bamboo grove in Arashiyama, and had made a reservation well in advance to go to Saihoji (Kokedera). The area is beautiful. I would definitely recommend staying at Japaning Hotel LiV Ranroukaku, and hope I'll be able to stay there again in the future.

Very large room with nice view”

The hotel is definitely value for money. The room is very large and the ambience is really the traditional Japanese. We checked in late about 10 pm and the staff still welcome us. I really recommend if you want to experience the traditional Japanese custom. The room also very large, is very difference with other hotel in Japan. If you want to spend whole day in the hotel, I would recommend it. However the nearest transport is by using bus no. 28 from Kyoto station. If you use the train, it would be quite far from Saga Arashiyama station. There are several point of interest nearby. Some temple, monkey forest, or even the Togetsu Bridge itself is having nice view. Overall, it is the best hotel during our 7 days stay in Japan.

One night was simply not enough”

For the price and the location, this place was a steal! You'd better book this fast before it gets popular and the prices sky rocket! The rooms available on Agoda were for the suite-style rooms. Apparently there are normal rooms there, but not posted on Agoda for booking. The suite style rooms were out of the world, considering the prices of ryokan in the area. The hotel itself did not have much in terms of facilities, but the room made up for itself! Service at the accomodation was good, though they did not know much english. Staff were friendly and smiling and went out of their way to show superb Japanese hospitality... Definitely one of the best finds for my Japan trip!
