    A friendly traditional japanese inn with choice of both futons and modern western style rooms. There was a friendly atmosphere round the breakfast table. Pity no evening meal and it would have been nice to have the option of japanese style communal bathing.

  • Single

    The staff at this Ryokan are fantastic and it truly makes for a great Japanese experience.

    The location is fairly good because of the proximity to Kyoto station. However, your eating options and going out options are limited because it is somewhat distant from central Kyoto where the action is.

    Very friendly staff and beautiful Japanese style room

    No hot water in the shower (wasn't really necessary in the July heat, but I still would have preferred to have the choice)

    I wanted a true Japanese style room and I received just that! The staff was very helpful and spoke English well. I felt very comfortable and the hotel was situated very closely to transportation, shopping, restaurants and other sights.

    Very helpful english speaking staff, in between the station and the shopping district. Small but well equipped room. A modern ryokan hotel but with traditional rooms.

    Everything is good enough. Close to the Kyoto station. Receptionists speak English well. The room and public bathroom are so clean and confortble. When I left the hotel, I got a gift given by the hotel. Stongly recommend this hotel. Live feels like at home.

    Room was very small and the walls were thin so you could heard talking from the next room and from the corridor very clearly.

    We stayed in one of the Japanese-style ryokans. It was authentic and very impressive. The ryokan is in an excellent location for travelling around Kyoto as it is so close to the station. Staff were excellent and knowledgeable, with very good English. I would highly recommend Matsubaya Ryokan.

    Fun place to stay. We stayed in a western style room but you should be of japanese size to stay, be ware of low entrance to toilet etc.

  • Older travelers

    Everything about this Ryokan is excellent. The staff are delightful. The room we had (505...a western style room) was small but spotless and simply but tastefully decorated. It is situated about 600 metres from Kyoto Station so it is between that and the main shopping area in Karawamachi Dori, just a little out of the way. It's in fact an easy walk from the station and in a densely packed part of old Kyoto so it may be hard for a newcomer to Kyoto to find. A taxi is the best way in that case, or in fact from any destination you would find yourself at after a day's excursion. You can't get into the room until 3:00 pm and must vacate by 10:00 am, but bags can be left at the hotel. If you know Kyoto though it's perfect.

    The rooms were nice with a traditional Japanese style. The hotel itself is about a 10 minute walk from Kyoto station and sits besides one of the cities biggest temples. This hotel is right in the heart of the city with great shopping being next to Porta (2nd biggest shopping centre in Kyoto as well it is all underground) and for electronics you can't go past Yodabashi. Also a 15 minute bus ride from Kyoto station will take you to the biggest shopping district.
