Avoid like the plague

by Livvy R on 20 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

As a well travelled couple in our mid-twenties, we've seen our fair share of budget accommodation. However, no matter how low the price they at least provided us with the basics- clean sheets and towels. Our room in Ryokan Ohto did not appear to have ever been cleaned, it had a stale smell to it, the bedsheets evidently had not been washed as they were smeared with dirt and hair. To make matters worse, the towels smelt of previous guests' deodorant and sweat and were damp. We asked for new sheet...

Below average

by Prabhat M on 12 Jul 2016 (Business Traveller)

I would not say it a bad place. First of all this was difficult for me to find this place. Second was the language problem. There was no English speaking staff. There was only one lady who was doing everything. I reached there at 11pm, all the doors were open but no body was present in office. Somehow I managed to call that lady. Rooms were clean and in Japanese style. An electric kettle along with Japanese tea was there. This room was near the local subway and free Wi-Fi was provided inside the...

Not recommended

by Cecilia C on 01 Jul 2016

Owner overcharged compared to our booking price. Room was noisy, can hear everything next door and from the street. Bathroom and toilet was down the hallway so have to share and was inconvenient. Wouldn't recommend it. Location wasn't too bad, there's Maccas and restaurant around and half an hour walk from the town Center - gion district.

Yeah uh no.

Want a classic Japanese styled hotel? Look elsewhere. Want a to use a small communal bath the size of the one in your home but yucky as well as a communal toilet that isn't the nice Japanese modern kind? Then this is your place. You can enjoy listening to your fellow suckers passing by as nothing stops the sound from inside or outside penetrating your room. Have fun- if you go stay somewhere else in Kyoto. Maccas and the convenience store nearby are pluses. The location is alright too but yeah...

A Traditional Japanese Style Bedroom

by David H on 28 May 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Well, it's a valuable experience to try this Japanese style bedroom (aka tatami) if you visit Japan. The only problem is that you have to carry your luggage a to third floor thru stairway which was a challenge. The location is fine but still need to take a taxi. However, the front desk can help you call a cab. It's too bad that this place does not have garden. I expect to see a nice Japanese backyard with garden and maybe a pond with some kois.
