4/5 Good

Staff: excellent staff and customers service. Location: I enjoy walking it’s a good secluded location and yet pretty close to the station, close to the shopping area and tourist main attraction. Onsen: they do have a nice onsen in the basement. It’s quite and relaxing. Room: it’s a good size but the bathroom is way too small so we basically showered in the public bathroom in the basement after dipping in the onsen. I would say overall experience is great.

Great location. Cute room. Friendly staff went above and beyond even coming in early to check us out and call a taxi for us.

5/5 Excellent

Nishiyama Ryokan is a solid ryokan in the middle of Kyoto. It's a 5 minute walk from the subway and there's even a shopping street nearby. The cleanliness of the place is impeccable and the staff are extremely friendly and eager to help in any way they can. The only con that I can think of is that the dinner and breakfast that you order is served in the dining room as opposed to your room like many other ryokans which seems odd given how much more expensive the food is at Nishiyama Ryokan compared to other establishments.

4/5 Good

The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and reasonably priced for the location. It wasn't the full Ryokan experience we had anticipated as we received a Western style room, but it was a nice stay nonetheless and the staff made us feel very welcome.
