Me and my family stayed at Watazen Ryokan for 2 nights in summer. We booked Japanese Style Room for 5people. Hotel location isn't really hard to find by using Google Maps. The building was looked old from the outside but the inside was really comfortable. Upon our arrival, the staff gave us a warm welcome by giving a prize drawing. You can leave your baggage at the hotel and check in after 16.00. You can also leave and check anytime you want until 22.00. After check in, a beautiful woman in yukata guided us to the room also made us a very relaxed tea. Room was very clean (with tatami mat) and the futon was really comfortable for me. The shared bathroom is a must try experience since the bathroom is clean & not too crowded. Location of the hotel is quiet convenient to travel around Kyoto City. You can always ask to the staff about direction and recommended place to go (I asked about some good restaurant in Arashiyama to the staff and it was really pleased us). Wifi-signal is not really good inside the room. But afterall, it's very recommended place to stay.
