Stayed here with my wife during our trip to Kyoto.

Superb service! The receptionist was very kind and helpful. He really made our stay comfortable and easy. Food was awesome (salmon ftw!) and the futon is quite comfy. Location is not that far from Gion (around 10 minutes walk).

Does not have private onsen but I managed to enjoy the public bath alone during our stay.

Definitely would stay here again in the future.

Absolutely delighted with Kinoe ryokan. Perfect choice. Great location. In the Gion area. The futons are super comfi as well as pillows. Loved the in-suite bathroom with sisheido products. Very clean and calm. Kohji was extremely helpful and went beyond help. Great breakfast. We would love to go back.

Our family of four completely enjoyed our stay at Kinoe. The location was great and within walking distance of the Gion. The staff were very friendly and helpful in regards to sites to visit, how to use the transit system and with restaurant suggestions and reservations. We chose the Japanese breakfast both mornings we were there which was delicious. The traditional Japanese bath was also fun!

The Ryokan Kinoe was absolutely amazing. The service we received from the staff was beyond expectations. In especial, the manager/concierge, Kohji, was extremely helpful and kind. The hote was very well located and clean. The rooms were big and comfortable. The public baths were a great experience. The japanese breakfast is an experience you can not miss. I would love to go back to this hotel !
