I spent 4 nights at this hotel Ryokan in Kyoto. Rooms were large, Japanese style with tatami mats and futons. They also provided nice Japanese robes (yakatas) and more formal jackets that go over the robes - so it was an instant feeling of "I am in JAPAN". Very clean with a little safe and refrigerator in each room. The staff put away the futons each morning and then set up the breakfast trays - always with a little hibatchi on which they cooked a fish, or ham and eggs, or a tofu "stew:, along with fruit, small plates of vegetables, rice, miso soup, etc.....It was interesting and exotic every morning.

The location was very good. On a VERY small street with lots of little shops, etc and yet only several blocks from major streets and the metro stations.

Hotel staff was WONDERFUL. Most were competent in English, but not fluent so it was fun communicating; they were very helpful with directions, etc. When we left, three of the staff accompanied us out to the taxi, thanking us the entire time. I felt as though I were leaving the home of a long-lost relative after a 4 day stay - not a hotel whre I had never previously stayed.

I did not try the communal bath because I was too busy with other things and had tried an onsen in Northern Japan. But, in retrospect, I wish I had so I could share the experience here.

I would definitely recommend the Hotel Matsui Ryokan, especially to first-times in Kyoto.

We spent three nights in Kyoto in August and it was very hard to find a central accomodation for 4 people, so we finally got 1 night at Matsui Hotel booked trhough the site japaneseguesthouses.com and 2 nights at the Watazen ryokan booked directly on the hotel website.
Both choice were excellent.
The Matsui Hotel is a japanese hotel with traditional rooms with tatami and futon.
Our room for 4 people was spacious and clean with private toilet and bathroom.
The japanese dinner was excellent! It was served in our room and it offered many different japanese tipical dishes: soup, fish, meat, shabu shabu, vegetables and other strange food we did not recognize!
Even the japanese breakfast is great, but only if you are familiar with this kind of flavour early in the morning (8:30 as the latest!).
The public bathroom experience was nice, expecially after a full day of walk in the sun (incredibly hot and humid in August).
The staff is very friendly and efficient: as soon as we arrived they offered us traditional green tea and cookies.
Matsui Hotel is located nearby Shijo street which has bus connection with major touristic site in Kyoto, and it is two subway stops from the JR Kyoto station.

I totally reccomend this hotel to everyone travelling to Kyoto!

Location is great, walking distance to Nikishi market and bus station in Shijo area.Dinner and breakfast is also very delicious.

This was our first experience of a Japanese ryokan.

Pros:
- great location
- green tea and Japanese pancakes welcome for the adults / toys for the kids
- western breakfast available (we loved trying the traditional Japanese breakfast on our first day but were pleased to be able to switch afterwards)
- beautiful onsen
- traditional Japanese home clothes provided
- umbrellas provided for rainy days
- staff greeting at the door every time we came in

Cons:
- children under the age of 6 are treated as second-class citizens: no breakfast or even bottle of water provided - despite the fact that they are paying guests (even if at a discounted rate). We didn't know that and it came as a bad surprise. Given the price we paid per night, this is really poor and young children should not be made to feel like that
- noisy room (street side)
- very expensive

This hotel was a great way to experience a Ryokan in a slightly westernized style. The hotel was neat and clean with an exceptionally friendly staff.

The rooms were spacious and traditional. They had options for both tatami mats, or "westernized" cots that added a little cushion to the tatami mat experience.

We didn't take advantage of the dinner offered, but the traditional Japanese style breakfast was excellent.

The hot baths were incredibly relaxing.

We were very glad that we took a night to spend here in the Ryokan.

We stayed three nights at this great hotel. It has the feel of a Japanese Ryokan but is a bit more upscale than the traditional. The hotel is on a quiet street and close to many local restaurants. It is about a 10 min. cab ride from Kyoto station but it puts you in the center of the real downtown residential/business area. The staff was very efficient and accommodating even escorting you to the door of the taxi. The room was very clean and my husband enjoyed the onsen bath each night. The signage on the hotel is difficult to see. Since there are three Matsui hotels in the area I would recommend you have their address with you and give it to the taxi driver. Would definatly stay there again. Hotel also has laundry which we used and worked out well for us.

Room and services
-we (2adults and a child) stayed in 大原 at the top floor
-the room is prefect!! It provides you a sense of tranditional Ryokan, yet it equired with a/c, full bathroom (seperated room for toilet and bath); in another word, enjoy the trandition with modern convenient
-very specious room
-i don't think it is a new hotel, but everything are maintained and looks pretty fresh
-there are two public bath, which they alter for men and women use everyday, so you wouldn't get bored even if you go there everyday. The public baths are very specious and decorated nicely
-please be expected to sleep on the floor with tranditional Japanese bedding
-24hrs concierge
-staff with sufficient English, good services

Location is good. Within ¥1,000 taxi from Kyoto station
-close to subway (within 15mins walk)
-kyoto is a small city, so you can try to the taxi (that I wouldn't dare to try in toyko), and only take about ¥1,000 from Kyoto station
-it is situated just off the main street in a quiet neighborhood
-convenient store around the corner, but please note it is not a shopping area
-a few coffee shops around, very nice (forgot the name, pls ask the hotel)

We had a such a great time in this hotel, we will definitely stay here again!!

I Just litterally finish my dinner there considering that I should share my disappointment regarding their Kaiseki Dinner . Basically Matsui Bekkan is what is supposed to be the real deal for a Ryokan experience at least this why I choose it, Including the Kaiseki Dinner serve in your Room .
To keep it short the hotel don't disapoint in its traditional Ryokan aspect however forget about their Kaiseki Dinner.
My wife and I are in Japan for a week and every single meal has been fantastic so far ! From breakfast at Tokyo fish market , Fancy Michelin Sushi or much more low key (though excelent) lost Ramen shop in Akihabara, Tonkatsu, or amazing Yakitory, this Kaiseki Dinner was very disappointing .
So basically everything was edible but it felt it was cooked 30 min before , it was dry in texture , bland in taste and also not enough in quantity . Sashimi was cheap fish ( forget the Otoro or Chutoro in the Picture .... ) we receive kampachi/sweet shrimp and squid ,which were actually ok and fresh but simply not what you expect when you check their review and their picture. Also for the record we were waiting our room to be ready when we arrive at 7.15 from temple and city visit to have dinner at 7.30 as we were asked since timing must be respected in all Japanese eateries.
7.30 is the last time they serve dinner . It looked like the dinner was waiting for us for 15 min already unfortunately... in addition regarding that it is a pricey dinning experience wich dont worth the money . I strongly suggest that you book only the room

Now when it comes to the Ryokan experience the place is very nice, very clean and comfortable. Service is very good as expected in Japan . A lot of their staff is actually Chinese (not and issue since my wife is from Taiwan and we live in Shanghai ) but some people might be disapointed . The in-room bath and toilet amenities are very nice and you do feel very cozy in this room after a winter day of visit in Kyoto . Im on my way to enjoy their onsen and comune bath .

I would then recommend the Mastui Bekkan for its Ryokan aspect and good location . However I strongly suggest you to find a different place for your dinner .

We wanted to book a ryokan along with the conveniences of modern facilities (in-room bath) and this hotel offered it all. We were greeted with a welcome freshly prepared matcha tea served with some sweets as we checked-in. The lobby had a 1970s vibe which was very cosy and welcoming. The front desk staff was super friendly and treated us like honored guests on each an every interaction. I was struck by how the same kind gentleman who checked us into the hotel, was the same one to help us with our luggage into our rooms, who showed us how to use the fabulous toilet features, as well as coordinated our taxi rides and instructed the drivers on where to go. It appeared that he was our personal host at the ryokan!

The room was wonderful and had yakutas (robes) and bathing kits for each of us. The public baths are a must! The heated soak tubs are luxurious. While it is 'public' - neither of us saw anyone during our visits to the public baths. I loved that instructions on how to use the baths were clearly documented and illustrated with cartoons in the room as well as in the bath itself!
