We had a wonderful experience in this lovely Ryokan, all the staff at the reception speak a good level of english ( which is not that common in Japan) and they were really helpful with recommendations and guides.

This place is full of amazing Japanese things. 'Ryo-kan' means, traditional style of accomodation in Japan, and this hotel is really good at expressing its identities. If you want just to sleep well, then you should book modern hotel near Kyoto JR station please. But...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host... More
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host as to when (even roughly) you plan to get in. They are very nice people to deal with.

My wife and I walked from Kyoto Station to the ryokan with luggage - big rolling suitcases. It wasn't too bad, and took maybe 15 to 20 minutes (we got a little lost). At the end of our stay, we took the bus to the station with our luggage. It was much quicker, of course - only a couple of stops. However, if the bus is crowded, it's difficult to get the luggage on. The main bus stop for the ryokan (Nishi Honganji) is about a minute's walk away. We didn't go to Gion during our stay in Kyoto, so I don't know about that.
