Hardly recommending, great location, great hosts and is truly Japanese.
I liked everything. I had shared bathroom which worked very well as there are only few rooms in the hotel. They made sure we all have time in a day for showering etc. The toilet as everywhere in Japan is an experience on its own. Just amazing!!😉☺️
Hospitality of owners is just mind blowing. From the first day they were treating me as their home guest, and I felt very welcomed. They were helping me to arrange the trip back to Osaka and provided me with a breakfast box free of charge as I had to leave at 6 am. Japanese breakfast was just amazing, so carefully selected food. Very delicious. Room was big and very clean. Bed was ok. I had two mattresses but if you need you can ask for one more. The owner asked me the first day which option I prefer.
Traditional breakfast was amazing. Owners are very friendly.
The personal touch. The quiet and relaxing atmosphere The fantastic breakfast The helpfulness of the owners
Homely, spotless and delicious breakfasts !
I didn't mind sharing the bathrooms or showers . It is a great place to stay.
Sumiko the host was excellent . We had lovely Japanese breakfasts prepared by her for 4 mornings. We felt so much at home . The location is near to Kiyomizu Temple . The house is very clean . Her husband did the cleaning and its spotless !! She treated us like family !
Super attentive hosts sometimes overly so.
Authentic Japanese experience.
Excellent, professional, cozy experience with top-notch local staff and clean, comfortable stay.
The location is slightly further way from Gion, but it's a bonus that it's right down the street from Kiyomizu-dera temple and the awesome walkway with shops leading to it.
A consummate lodging experience, our hosts were extremely accommodating, professional, and knowledgeable for what we wanted to accomplish in Kyoto. They brought our luggage in while we got the download on what to do, how, and local tips. As for the ryokan experience, it was what I expected if not more. The beds were surprisingly comfortable, the sleeping garments were fresh, clean, and comfortable, and the breakfast the following morning was delicious and traditional. They were able to keep our luggage after check-out while we were exploring Kyoto and even did a load of laundry for us weary travelers! Overall awesome and would definitely stay again! Such nice people.
Stunning house! We had a wonderful stay. The owner is so friendly and helpful! She made us feel like home!
Small and very friendly authentic ryokan. This is not a luxury place, but a real and amazing ryokan.
Staff is so nice! More of a traditional home stay than a hotel. Great wifi and super comfortable futon beds.
Everything! The traditional rooms were beautiful. The staff helped us lot and looked after every single detail.
A lovely ryokan in Kyoto
Hosts greated us in the street and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was a lovely experience and the host explained the local food very well. A great place to stay in a kyoto ryokan!
Great traditional Kyoto experience
We booked very late so it was very expensive (it was worth it). A solid 10min walk from main Gion shops at night (loads of busses & offset by proximity to temples).
Okami-san was the untimate host. We really felt part of the house and they took time to help us make the most of our short stay. Everything from food, maps, suggested itineraries. The room experience was fabulous. We will visit again for sure.
Our hosts at Kamuroan were sensational. My bride and I just loved their warmth, helpfulness and laughter. Kamuroan is ideal for couples, and the traditional tatami rooms are a good size. I can recommend the Japanese breakfast available at a modest cost. The location is very close to Kiyomizu temple, which is great at night, a 10 minute walk to Gion and 15 mins to lots of great restaurants at Pontocho. If you are done strolling, the very athletic Jinrikisha, will get you there in no time! Efficient Kyoto buses are just around the corner, and a day pass, can easily take you to further locations. I hope we can return soon.

No lock for room, expected for traditional house.
The host are extremely nice and she is always so helpful. Nice room.
The host makes this place special but even without the host the property and location was great.
