“Great service and environment ”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights, service was excellent,and without spoiling it for most,they had some other services not found in conventional hotels. Rooms were pretty good and stylish, yet looks traditional. Meals are quality, and of huge quantities of Japanese food. You might not like the food if you're not used to their traditional food, as it is really traditional Japanese food, and not your conventional Katsu Chicken. The place you have a meal at is pretty mind blowing, won't spoil it for you, but its not your normal dinner room. Staff are mostly Japanese speaking, but go out of their way to understand and accommodate you. Really enjoyed myself there. I thought it was well worth it.

Thank you for your detailed feedback about your stay. We are happy to hear that you had an enjoyable stay with us. We take pride in the quality of our service and Japanese traditional food, and we are glad that you felt well taken care of. However, we are sorry that you were uncomfortable in the place you had meals. You would have felt blowing because the banquet room was large. We would like to improve the banquet room to be more comfortable. We hope to welcome you back the next time you are in Kyoto.

Well I stayed here in our trip to Kyoto in March with my friends. Room was quite large (or beacause it had no bed so it seemed large) and comfortable. Some of my friends couldn't got used to the Janpanese style room, they got used to sleeping on bed, but for me, it's fine. Room had only basic funiture, no laptop. But this hotel had a very beatiful designed garden with strange plant. I love this place for its peaceful and quite atmostphere !! Recommended !!

We have never been treated so well anywhere else in the world. The service exceeded all our expectations. The staff people were the nicest people we have ever met. The rooms where nice clean japanese style rooms.
We went to Kyoto for 4 days and it was also our first trip to Japan. Arriving from Tokyo we were expecting to find all places, including the ryokan to be right next to a subway station but we found out that Kyoto only has 2 subway lines and that everything is reachable by bus. The ryokan was 15 minutes away by bus from the kitaoji station so it was well positioned to go to many of the places we wanted to visit in particular the kinkakuji gold temple. The japanese rooms have a nice view of a japanese garden and also it has a good view of the mountains. Our japanese room had a private bathroom but we also had access to a traditional japanese bath which had the most amazing view to the mountains. We included the option of breakfast and dinner in our reservation, which is traditional japanese food (yes you have option of american breakfast). We have never eaten so much and the quality of the dishes was excellent. For these reasons the prices were extremely reasonable. Nenrinbo has both western and japanese style rooms. They speak a little english and they were very helpful in giving us directions to the city. Because the ryokan location there is no city noise and we were able to enjoy the calmness of the place. To get from the Kyoto station to the ryokan you should take the subway karasuma line towards kokusaikaikan and get off at the kitaoji station, then go up stairs to the bus departure place and go to the E door. Then take the bus named "kita one" (weird symbol - 1) NOTE: dont take the bus number 1 which is different. Jump out in the takagamine genkoanmae stop and walk 4 minutes uphill.
