High price for low hotel

by gorkazm on 29 Aug 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Typical japanese hotel in Kyoto. Not the most confortable...the hotel is old and needs some refurbishment but is OK for a couple of days while you are visiting the town. Breakfast buffet is poor...and 80% of the staff don't speak any english...anyway all of them were really friendly. Is a hotel for locals more than for western people.

Good value for the price - the facilities are in need of modernization

Stayed here with a tour group run by Samurai Tours (excellent tour group that allows you to tour Japan like a local). Pros: 1) The location. Right next to a major bus stop and down the street from a convenience store and a laundromat! 2) Amazing customer service3) Value for price. Cons: 1) Western rooms still has tatami style seating. Bad for those with knee issues. 2) In-room showers only available in western room and the pressure of the water is poor so you may find yourself screaming from hot...

Worn but delightful.

A large tatami room, separated by sliding doors from a small sitting room that overlooked the garden. Our room also had a full bathroom with toilet, sink and shower. The hotel staff spoke l...

Tired in Kyoto

by Raynes57 on 22 Apr 2016 (Family Traveller)

This "modern" ryokan is well past its prime and in need of updating. Staff is friendly, but short on English speakers. Public areas are drab and bathrooms are dated. On the other hand, we had authentic experience seeing busloads of Japanese and Chinese tourists come and go at this place that reminded us of a "Howard Johnson." Breakfast buffet was definitely decent as was the public bath facility. Bedrooms with traditional tatami mats were well sized and clean, though also decidedly dated an...

Convenient, tired

by artchix17 on 21 Apr 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Hotel Tozankaku is well located for touring Kyoto's eastern temples, especially Kyomizudera and Sanjusangendo, for a quick taxi ride to Kyoto Station, and for buses. It's tired and dated--no outlet in the dreary bathroom, no blow-dryer, etc.--but is entirely typical of Japanese hotels. Our tatami room faced the garden and away from the street and was very quiet, except for some noisy neighbors audible from the next room. Note that the tatami rooms are smoking rooms and the odor lingers. Incl...
