5/5 Excellent

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The Nishiyama Ryokan exceeded our expectations entirely. It was a peaceful and beautiful space, and quite spacious. The facilities were clean and the staff were incredibly accommodating and kind. The location was fairly central, a short walk to the main tourist areas, restaurants, etc. We participated in the traditional Japanese breakfast and it was incredible - the server and the meal were both fantastic. We did not use the facilities (i.e. the public bath), but it seemed like a relaxing and clean space as well. We only spent one night here as we read to only spend a short time in a ryoken generally and a hotel for the remainder of the trip. However, we wish we stayed here longer as the experience was lovely. Totally recommend!!

- Rooms: Very clean and comfortable. Free socks! - Ryokan has a free tea ceremony from 9:00 - 11:00 am hosted by the owners themselves! Taught us how to Japanese tea drinking etiquette and put our photo in a beautiful frame when they heard we were newlyweds. Even put cute dolls of newlyweds in our room while we were out. They have other activities too, like free sake tasting - Public bath at B1 is amazing, clean and relaxing. Hair ties, towels, make up remover, etc. provided - Excellent customer service. Very accomodating staff, always polite and helpful, even went outside to send us off when we left and bowed as the taxi drove away. They even gave us free masks when they heard we were going to Osaka out of concern regarding the Wuhan virus - Gion, city centre and popular shopping streets are very accessible, often a lesiurely walk away or a short bus/train ride. Neighbourhood has cafes, convenience stores, and shops nearby but is peaceful and quiet
