Helpful staff and very clean
Staff was amazingly helpful and it was fun to stay in a traditional Japanese accommodation. Of course, these are not beds, so comfort level isn't quite the same as regular lodging, but it was a unique experience! The room was also spotless and spacious.

nice stay in traditional Japanese home
It was a lovely experience. Most of the staff were friendly (there was one guy who wasn’t friendly at all) and the traditional bath was a nice edition

The Kinoe is an amazing ryokan centrally located near Gion. Staff were awesome and made a number of helpful recommendations on sites to see near by. The in room dining was also excellent- fabulous kaiseki dining for both breakfast and dinner. Our room attendant was fantastic - very friendly, efficient and spoke excellent English. We would absolutely recommend the Kinoe to anyone visiting Kyoto
