          6.2

          Great location from Kyoto station.

          Traditional "ryokan" always provide good hoapitality with dinner. Nishikiro is more like inn/motel than "Japanese ryokan"

        • Family with children
          10.0

          Excellent location - very close to the JR Station. Very friendly owner who can also speak English quite well. Spacious rooms as well.

        • Couple
          8.8

          It was very near to the Kyoto station, so there wasn't any issue with food and transport. The ryokan staff were excellent as they allowed us to check in at about 1445 hours, instead of 1600 hours, when we arrived at the ryokan. The room was also clean, though a bit small. This was also my first experience staying in a ryokan, hence i didn't know what to expect/not to expect.

          I was a bit shocked that the shower facilities had no privacy. I understood that it was a shared bathroom, but had initially thought that there was at least some privacy. As such, i didn't expect that the bathroom was open kind (any male guest could walk into the bathroom while you are bathing).

        • Group of friends
          8.8

          If you want to stay in a ryokan, I definitely recommend this hotel.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          The service was perfect! From the moment we walked through the door the owner was extremely welcoming & helpful with very good English! Rooms are beautiful traditional Japanese style and very comfortable!

        • Family with children
          9.2

          Beautiful setting; loved the fish pond and the sound of running water. Coin-op washer & dryer was excellent to have and even better were the clothes racks for each room to hang & dry the clothes! The ensuite bathroom saved those of us not keen on the shared bathroom experience although the big deep bath was good to try. Very close to train station and other sights.

          Traditional pillows are an acquired taste!

        • Family with children
          10.0

          The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room and facilities were comfortable and clean. The carp pond in the middle added atmosphere. The location was very convenient to Kyoto Station but nice and quiet.

        • Group of friends
          6.6

          I like the futon style bedding as well as the fish pond in the center of the area.

          It is a little tiny bit inconvenient to share a bathroom but not impossible......when you blow dry your hair and you look to the street, you are completely visable to people walking by. It really is no big deal, but privacy could be something to consider. The kindness of the staff makes up for it and the nature of the hotel is fine.

          Service is great.

          There's only one washing machine, so I have to wait it for a long time.

          10.0

          Nishikiro is conveniently located near Kyoto Station, yet quiet and on a small street. The koi pond in the courtyard was very charming. The staff was friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this ryokan.

        • Group of friends
          9.6

          Friendly staff! Close to Kyoto station. Clean and beautiful traditional japanese building.

        • Couple
          6.2

          the location is near Kyoto station which is super convenient. staff are nice, and the yard in middle of hotel is beatiful.

        • Group of friends
          8.2

          It was a perfect location close to Kyoto Train station which gives access to tours, buses, underground and the bullet train. It was also an economical way to experience a Japanese Ryokan.

          The tatamee mats gave the rooms a distinctive smell.
