Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The Nishiyama Ryokan exceeded our expectations entirely. It was a peaceful and beautiful space, and quite spacious. The facilities were clean and the staff were incredibly accommodating and kind. The location was fairly central, a short walk to the main tourist areas, restaurants, etc. We participated in the traditional Japanese breakfast and it was incredible - the server and the meal were both fantastic. We did not use the facilities (i.e. the public bath), but it seemed like a relaxing and clean space as well. We only spent one night here as we read to only spend a short time in a ryoken generally and a hotel for the remainder of the trip. However, we wish we stayed here longer as the experience was lovely. Totally recommend!!

Relaxing Experience
The room we stayed in was in the traditional Japanese style but also included Western style beds and a bathroom. It was a good balance of the culture while being comfortable and familiar for people visiting from the US. The basement included a common bath area (separated by gender), which is very traditional for a Ryokan. I found it a little awkward because males in the US do not usually bathe together, but I ended up having the bath to myself and really enjoyed the space and freedom. We also met the owners in the morning over matcha and they were wonderful. The hotel is a short walk from the nearest metro station and there are a number of restaurants within a reasonable walking distance. We would love to stay here again if we return to Kyoto.
