great traditional room. however there wasn't a lot of space once it was converted into "bedroom". my kids loved the onset. the staff was really helpful and gave us lots of recommendations. breakfast was no the best as just bread and boiled egg but it was OK I would stay again as location was good and staff helpful.

This was our first time staying at a ryokan, and it was a cool experience. Your bedding is laid out on the tatami mats by the staff at night. We had a kaiseki meal the first night and it was pretty nice, wearing our yukata and enjoying our multi-course meal in our room. Our room was really spacious. In addition to a traditional table where you sit on the tatami mat, there was also a table with two chairs. And the amenities included a mini fridge. Our bathroom was clean, and we had access to the public baths which we used on our first night. Overall, the hotel itself is really nice and clean, and located in a great location, near the Nishiki Market. Our room felt slightly dated but it was clean and comfortable. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay at a ryokan.

The service here is amazing and the gentleman with the glasses at the front (possibly the owner) is one of the best human beings you’ll deal with in the service industry. Extremely helpful and he’s funny too (I didn’t get his name). The room is big and I recommend using a few futons as one is too thin to sleep on for anyone that weighs closer to 90kgs or more. Onsen is nice and although a little small, it was clean and nobody was in there when I used it. Breakfast is light yet you can opt in for the Japanese breakfast for a small price and do it if you haven’t had one before. Enjoy.
