Stayed one night at this property and wasn't disappointed. We were upgraded to a big room where we could sleep four persons comfortably. To help other travellers who may consider this property; 1) both the kaiseki dinner and morning breakfast were served in the dinning room on the ground floor; 2) there are 2 public onsen baths - one for males and one for females. You don't have to pay for the use of them; 3) there are 2 private onsen baths situated after a flight of stairs and their roofs can be drawn back. These 2 private baths are chargeable by the hour. 4) the ryokan provides 2-way transfer from a nearby train station to the property. But take note the morning shuttle from the property starts at 9.20am. I must commend Mr Yamamoto at the front desk (hope I got his name correct) for his patience and resourcefulness to advise me to re-route my shinkansen timing to Tokyo. He even wrote the instruction for changes in Japanese for me to show the staff at the JR station. Only minor comments: there are 2 windows in my room and one of them overlooked a construction area and my room had strong food smell despite the staff told me that all meals were served in the dining hall. Suggest that the ryokan should refresh the room.

My mom and I spent two day at Momijiya. We loved Kyoto but Takao was a nice break from the city. Takao is a peaceful mountain small town. The hospitality was superb. When we arrived, they immediately changed our room from 3rd floor to 2nd floor in order to accommodate my mom. We were well taken care for all the details. We had two dinner and two breakfast. The first night it was kaiseki and the second night was hot pot. You have three options for the second night. We loved all the presentations as well as the meal itself. But if you are a hamburger fan you may want to have a second thought. There are several temples within walking distance and there is also a hiking trail leading to Arashiyama. All the rooms and the hot baths are facing the mountains. Autumn would be a great season to enjoy the color change. Everyday the beds were prepared for you and next day the beds were cleaned up as well. To our surprise they included a traditional bed warmer at the first night. Japanese hospitality is part of their unique culture that you won’t find in another country especially at ryokan.

Stayed 2 nights. This is actually a very good hotel with great service and great meal. Actually it shall be at least 4 star property. However the onsen is only hot water bath, not hot-spring water. The bigger problem is that you will find the Momijiya ANNEX a much better hotel with only 6 room, located by the river. But the name and pictures of both confuse with each other. I end up pick the wrong one.

It was my first time staying at a ryokan so I came with no expectations / comparison. I highly recommend it for summer period. We had kaiseki dinner by the river, followed by maiko dance (the maiko comes round for photos too & spoke a little bit of English so expect limited interaction). I particularly loved the part where they turned off all the lights for about 15mins for you to view fireflies!! Not just a few specks of light but continuous blinking lights everywhere.. it was amazing to view them without light pollution. Our room was jap style & I loved that it smelled of tatami mats. Our room didn’t come with a private bathroom/tub but I’m actually glad about that because we went for the 45min private onsen which turned out to be really spacious & has a stunning view that overlooks the mountain/forest, plus a retractable roof to see the sky (2700Yen & slots available from 7am till 10pm). The only downside that I can think of is the late check in & early check out (the shuttle bus reaches ryokan around ~3:30pm for check in n departs 10:20am for check out). N it’s true u can hear noisy neighbors but I believe most folks r considerate. To me, these are small nuances that will not tarnish the awesome 1 night experience that we had :)

We stayed in the "Annex" which is a little further down into the mountains and over a bridge. The entire staff was extremely attentive, efficient and hospitable. Stay 2 nights as the food progresses from very good to excellent. Because of it's popularity, some of our fellow tourists got a little noisy, so go for the private bungalow if budget allows. For most part, surrounding areas are good for hiking and nature appreciation.
