"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.
"Lovely stay in traditional ryokan"
We had a lovely night stay at this ryokan. The accommodation is traditional but comfortable, and includes dinner and breakfast. The food was plentiful and traditional, certainly different to what we had tasted before, and mostly delicious. It completed the experience having the food served to us in our room. I would certainly recommend this to complete the true experience in Japan.
"Tradition, Kindness, and warmth"
We stayed at Sakanoue in late February/early March 2016. The room was excellently appointed and a very generous size. The staff was wonderfully attentive and accommodating. The food was absolutely delicious. I would have loved to stay for another week. The 12 PM curfew (while common among ryokan) can be a bit tiresome if you're at all interested in nightlife. I made it back a few minutes late (12:03 I believe) and the doors were locked as well as a gate on the street! However, I was able to call in and get someone to come let me in. Stay here. Absolutely stay here. Just make sure you're back by 12!
