Do you love to smoke cigarettes? Then this is the hotel for you! Even if you don't like to smoke, you will be provided plenty of smoke! In your room, in the baths, in the lobby, smoke smoke smoke! Rooms are fine, food is mediocre, wifi sucks. Couldn't connect in the lobby or in the room. Would not stay again.

Location of this hotel is just opposite the "阪急嵐山" station of 阪急電鐵, just 5 minutes walk to 渡月橋. The dinner and breakfast is very full and delicious. I love the outdoor hot spring very much in the hotel. The hotel also offer the free ticket to the outside hot spring for all guests. Next to the hotel, there is a...

Stayed there for one night in early March 2017. It is a big hotel with onsen rather than a ryokan. Convenient location as it is just opposite a train station and 10 minutes walk from major attractions at Arashiyama. The booking included breakfast and dinner though both were average only. As hotel guests, we were allowed one free access to...

A very traditional ryokan that was very convenient in location. It's right across the street from a train station and within walking distance of 2 other stations. It was very beautiful. The main factor for why we chose this ryokan is because they have private onsens. I have 2 small tattoos which aren't allowed in Japan. As a result we've...

A very nice traditional ryokan, just few steps away from the bamboo forest in Arashiyama. Very delicious breakfast and dinner (eaten much too much). A big onset inside with 2 saunas and two onset pools (one outside and one inside). Also there are available small "private baths", however there is queue for that.

My wife and I made last minute bookings for Chinese New Year period travel and Kadensho was the only acceptable choice available. With lowered expectations, we found our stay pleasant enough. There was constant flow of guests checking in and out daily and mainly tourists from the region. The staff were efficient but lacking in the usual Japanese style hospitality....

The room was not so wide space, but there is beauty of simple and compact. There is bathtub in the room, but we used it only once time because of various selectable bath of reservations. Dinner was so wonderful. Service was so timely and selectable dinner was delicate taste, typical Japanese cuisine.

This is my 2nd time staying in this onsen. There were 4 of us staying in a western/japanese style room and 3 of us this time. However, the room we stayed this time was at least 1/4 smaller than the 1st time (even though I think I have booked the same 35 sq. m room). So we didn't quite enjoy...

We stayed here a night before our wedding. It was quite the Japanese experience in this suburban area that is very close to the train station. It was across the train station. You can see the mountains from the room. You are made to walk barefoot or with the Japanese white socks (Tabi) once you enter the hotel. That was...

This is a large hotel with semi-traditional rooms - we got 2 beds and that's what make it more modern. The room is clean, nice and comfortable with separate bathroom and toilet room. The air-conditioner works well. There are 2 meals provided - dinner and breakfast. Dinner is kaiseki with all you can eat tempura and all you can drink...

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
