First off - I'd agree with other reviewers - definitely ask about the differences between the rooms as they are very variable! Ours was a charming little cottage, suitable for the two of us (myself and my father) but was definitely smaller than many and accessed through a long, quite chilly corridor rather than through the beautiful garden. So definitely,...

We stayed for 2 nights in the Taikan room which accommodates 4 people across 2 adjoining rooms. The room itself had great views over the garden but felt generally tired and in need of a revamp - some areas of the tatami were rough and caught on our socks while I managed to get splinters from sliding the screen doors...

Sekitei was an incomparable experience. I stayed here for 2 nights very recently, after proposing to my then-girlfriend, and I could not have imagined up a more romantic experience. The staff were phenomenal, the food was phenomenal, and the entire experience felt so authentic and personal. Our room was the Oimatsu room, which had an excellent view of the courtyard...

Sekitei is most probably one of the nicest Ryokans you can stay. It was built in the 60ties and it is still full of original Scandinavian furniture. The room we had was stunning, we even had a private bath on the second floor of our room, the design of this place including the garden is wonderful. Dinner is served in...

Luxurious ryokan with sublime gardens and rooms.. Service was impeccable and food wonderful. We would highly recommend this for a relaxing stay. The ryokan is approx 35 minutes from Hiroshima and perfectly placed for Mount Mizen which was a highlight of our stay in Japan.wwwoulpwould definitely

Words almost do not do justice to the sublime nature of this property and the staff. This place is amazing in every respect. The rooms are superb with private bathtubs, views of the garden and islands. We stayed for 1 night and enjoyed the upgraded meal, which was nothing short of amazing. It is something truly memorable and to be...

The best ryokan so far, and will return in the future. Only 12 unique rooms, build with top Japanese standard, mostly with wood. e.g. You will experience the unique flexible window designed to block sun light. Public bath is also exceptional, due to the limited number of guest. I upgraded my meal with additional JPY 5,000 and it is a...

My family of 4 stayed here for the night. My family have been going to multiple ryokans at least once a year so my expectations were extremely high. Everything was exceptional. From the moment we entered this urban sanctuary, you can feel the warmth and a sense of appreciation from the staff alongside with their strive to create a wonderful...

My wife and I stayed two days. This place is amazing in every respect. The rooms are superb, the service is incredibly thoughtful and responsive, and the garden is a delight. Our meals were as good as the ones we had at Michelin three star restaurants in Kyoto. There is simply nothing about this place that is luxurious and well...

First of all I must say that staying at Sekitei was an absolute pleasure. It was part of a longer trip that we made from Tokyo across Japan ending up in Seoul, South Korea. I was a little bit apprehensive about booking Sekitei as some of the reviews were old and it seemed like a little bit of a mission...
