Elegant, traditional ryokan in excellent locationPosted 26/07/2013
Pros: The traditional Japanese ryokan was a nice change from the ultra modern hotels.
Cons: I would change nothing.
Location: The Seikoro Ryokan is very close to the Kiyomizu Gojo rail station so no taxis are necessary. We walked to the Gion area.
The Seikoro Ryokan is a gem of a hotel hidden away in the bustling city of Kyoto. This upscale, yet traditional ryokan was recommended by friends of ours. We stayed there recently with our two teenagers and were pleasantly surprised. The service was excellent and the staff was friendly and helpful.

A wonderful Ryokan in KyotoPosted 08/07/2013 on Hotels.com
It was a wonderful experience, the room was larger than in other Japanese Inn's I have stayed in and the dinner in the Ryokan was excellent! I highly recommend it for a memorable Kyoto experience.

make sure you get on a train that goes to Kiyomizu-gojo station, it's just outside. the hotel is a 20min walk to gion and kiyomizudera. we were greeted as soon as we walked into the entrance. our bags were taken and we were given slippers to wear inside. our room was beautiful and so was the bathroom, complete with a wooden deep soaking tub. we had two areas of tatami and sliding doors to separate them. we paid for the kaiseki and it was an amazing way to experience traditional food. the woman who runs it brings you each course to your room and explains what each dish ans ingredient is and how to eat it. really, really, really enjoyed our stay there!

Traditional Japanese stayPosted 05/05/2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed two nights at the Seikoro. I have stayed at several Ryokans and this was both the best and most expensive. The service was wonderful, the food amazing and the room was very good but not great. We had a wonderful view of the garden and a lot of space. For the cost I thought it would have been a bit more spectacular.The service was a very high right down to five people sending us off in our taxi as we departed, although I assume everyone gets this treatment they made it seem like it was especially for us.

not good value for moneyPosted 02/04/2013
way too expensive for the quality. the food was disappointing and the staff were overly obsequious, even by Japanese standards. made us feel uncomfortable.

Ryokan experiencePosted 01/04/2013
Pros: Service was great.
Cons: No place to sit inside room. TV had very limited channels - only in Japanese.
Location: Location was central and close to river.
I realize this was supposed to be a traditional Japanese experience, but it was quite expensive for what you received. The cushions were quite old - there was nowhere to be comfortable inside the room other than pull in gout cushion to lay on. Food was good and the service was attentive, but it was not worth the money we spent.
