Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service
It was inconvenient as it was far away from the city. The place was run down, toilets old, kitchen old, indoor "onsen" is just a bath tub.

Our stay at Ryokan Yamazaki was delightful. We stayed for 3 nights. The ryokan was clean and gorgeous! The staff took amazing care of us! It might not provide some of the more premium amenities, but definitely worth a consideration. Definitely consider the half-board option. The Kaiseki dinner was delicious! I would definitely recommend this ryokan especially for the stellar service! Just be warned that the ryokan is a little ways out. It's about 40 minute bus ride from Kyoto station. There's two bus stops within 5 minutes of the ryokan. We didn't really see it as a problem, but the extended amount of travel might be discouraging to some.

Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Nice and cosy. Could be better if slightly cheaper
Considering the amount paid, we were slightly disappointed as a family. This is because we have stayed in many ryokans before. However, do expect the usual Japanese service standards and hospitality. Kaiseiki dinner was nice and varied in our 2 nights stay as well.
