"Classic fair hotel, may be little pricy'"
It locates good location of Higashi yama. classic style, but I guess little pricy. Food is good, room is clean but old. Bath tub as small and old does not worth the price. Again Food is really good, if you love Japanese food, I suggest you visit. Also good location.
"Very enjoyable ryokan!"
Sakanoue was the best choice for a traditional ryokan experience without blowing an insane amount for one night. The room was cozy and had a private bathroom which was a plus. Location was PERFECT!!! Easy walk to Sannenzaka/Ninenzaka/Kiyomizu Temple/Gion. The Kaiseki dinner was very interesting. Everything they serve is according to the season. So most of it was all very new to us, not necessarily bad, just different. The traditional japanese breakfast was delicious. I definitely recommend getting the room package with only the breakast and trying out one of the many kaiseki restaurants in Kyoto. We would have done this but they only had the dinner and breakfast room package available. Also, I was kind of disappointed that we didn't have our meals served in our room. Not too big a deal but I guess there was some confusion on our reservations. I had changed our reservations from 6 to 5 well ahead of time and they kept on saying we had 6. This was all resolved rather quickly though. Overall a lovely stay!!! Highly recommend one night in a ryokan.
"I don't know how you could ask for more"
I LOVED LOVED LOVED this hotel. The people were so kind. So happy. So willing to help you. I loved they offer western breakfast. I love it was served in our room. The location was spot on. You are IN the district, not near the district. We stayed at another more expensive hotel in Kyoto but this was by far my favorite. Can't wait to stay there again!
"The perfect Japanese Ryokan experience!"
It was hard to find a good value for money Ryokan in Kyoto, especially one that had private bathroom, I'm very glad I decided on Sakanoue, it was everything I could ask for. Friendly service, amazing breakfast, and super convenient location, the room also was very spacious together with separate bathroom area and entry area, also close to Okamoto's kimono rental which is also highly recommended. We could walk to almost all sights, great stay, highly recommended! The reception girl spoke English, the lady serving breakfast didn't.
"Value for money Ryokan"
Spent two restful nights at this tranquil ryokan. It is conveniently located about 15mins to kyomizu temple and 5mins to Gion. The kaiseki meals included in my package were delicious. The service from the property staff was excellent. Will definitely stay there again if I return to Kyoto.
