Convenient but basic
Convenient location -ryokan is a bit rundown. Breakfasts are good, but the rooms are average, staff is ok but not stellar. Rooms and bathrooms are very basic.

Friendly staff, spacious room.
We didn't know the hotel has 2 different towers (just 1 min walk away) and we turned up at the wrong one. Staff were friendly to show us to the right tower, even helped with our suitcase. Place is dated but we like that. The breakfast is awesome! The location is a 15 min walk from Sanjo-dori and it's easier to hop on buses with bus stops located within 3 min walk from the hotel....6 min walk with a 4-year-old.
