You owe it to yourself to try a ryokan once
Kyoto is pretty quiet. There are the bar and restaurant streets to check out at night but otherwise very quiet. If you plan right you can hit all the major temples and geisha streets in a day. The hotel is convenient from the bus station, pretty close to a subway station. If you're only staying a day or two definitely go for it. The traditional feel and style is really worth it! I'm 6'4 and aside from the really tight toilet everything else was okay. We were surprised how well we slept on tatami and futon actually. Plus for the price you save a little and can use the spare change to pick up a few more souvenirs. As others have said the walls are very thin. We had some loud Cantonese who wouldn't shut up until about midnight so it is a little luck of the draw but it wasn't a deal breaker... just take some earplugs and you'll be fine. Other guests wrote about the staff.. again it's a bit luck of the draw.. the lady who checked us in was very friendly.. others seemed okay. You do have to make your own bed and take care of yourself, there are some more responsibilities than other hotels (they have an instruction manual for everything you need to know that's handwritten.. it's really like b&b style.) I think it's nice in it's quaintness and simplicity though, it makes for an unforgettable experience and best of all AMAZING pictures you can use as bragging rights for years to come. Last, make sure to eat before coming back although there are some decent western restaurants around.

ロームシアターに行くのならば徒歩圏内のこの宿はオススメ。アンダースローからバスで夜遅めの時間でも快適に戻れます(熊野神社前下車)。はしご観劇の方は是非。和風レトロな作りなので海外の方にもオススメです。通りから少し引っ込んでいるので宿内は静かです。ただ隣の人の音に神経質な方は厳しいかもしれません(でも耳栓をフロントで無料でいただけます)。フロントの深い側の小部屋から和風の中庭が見えて寒い間は炬燵とストーブがあります。ここでフリーのコーヒーやお茶をいただけます。持ち込みの食事もここでゆっくり食べれますよ。電子レンジもありました。WiFiもあるのでここでミーティングしたり、仕事をすることも可能。安価で色々ついていてお得だなと思いました。 周りには飲食のお店、お土産、ギャラリー、骨董品のお店などがちらほら。
