    Staff were polite and accommodating. Room was spacious and comfortable. Kaiseki dinner and Japanese breakfast awesome as always for a ryokan of this standard. Check out time a little too early at 10am though.

    Japanese service is renoun, but the service at Arashiyama was in another echalon. The kind hostesses treated us like VIP's from the moment we arrived. The 12 course supper was fantastic. The chef created the most tantalizing traditional Kyoto dishes that I have ever tasted....More

    Stayed in one of Benkei's best rooms for one night. As with traditional ryokans, the baths, food and service was absolutely luxurious in Benkei. It was raining and chilly during the day so it was amazing to soak in their hot spring baths. Apart from...More

    Sarah L
    Hi, I'm interested in booking an onsen with an indoor bath. Is the advertisement picture with the private onsen overlooking a Japanese garden the 12+6 mat room? Also, the Arasyhiyama website shows the price for this room as "JPY 43,430~JPY 50,990." Is this price for the room or per person? Lastly, I want to leave my luggage before check in. What time is the earliest I can leave my luggage at the onsen? Thanks for answering my many questions!

    Each room comes with a bath, except for 2 (toilet only). According to their website, they have a room with a bath that has a garden view, which I assume is the largest room available, but check directly with the ryokan to... More

    I have a few questions regarding the reservation I just made. Is there an e-mail address I can direct my questions to? Thank you!

    If you booked directly through Benkei, they should send you a confirmation email that may provide you with additional contact information. Otherwise, their website has a link "check or cancel reservation"
    Is it possible to request a reservation for meal-plan only, without booking a room? We would like to try the restaurant and cuisine here.
