Kyo Yunohana Resort Suisen




If you are looking for ryokans with hot springs in Kyoto, you must stay there.  The property has wonderful rooms with private hot springs.  Perhaps if you are looking for a rejuvenating and refreshing oasis from the hustle and bustle of city life, I would highly recommend it.  On the other hand, if this is your first visit Kyoto, I wouldn’t recommend it.  You might want to stay in Kyoto city.  The location is far from central Kyoto.  I would rather recommend staying at the sister inns, either Kyokoyado Yasaka Yutone Ryokan or Kyokoyado Muromachi Yutone Ryokan.  Kyo Yunohana Resort Suisen is located in Kameoka City.  It takes 20-30min from Kyoto Station to Kameoka Station by train.  The property would be great for couples, family, and solo travelers.  *A minimum age requirement of 7 applies.  Solo travelers can book rooms on weekdays only.  The ambience is serene, cozy and relaxed.  It’s like a secret hideaway for adults.  Anyway if you are going to stay there, I would highly recommend booking a room with an outdoor private hot spring.  It’s truly worth staying it.  We spent a lot of time jumping in and out of our private onsen.  The water temperature tends to be lukewarm.  Even if this is your first time staying at ryokans, you wouldn’t feel any stress during your stay.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  Also there is a wonderful private family outdoor hot spring in-house.  It costs 2,000JPY for 50min.  You need to book it when you check in at the front desk if you want to use.  This is open from 14:00-21:50, 7:00-9:50.  You must try it.  Then there are large public hot springs in-house.  They are open from 14:00-24:00, 5:00-10:00.  *Please note that if you have tattoos and want to use the public hot springs, use reserved private family one, or book a room with an outdoor private one attached.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, bathrobes, pajamas, samue outfits, yukatas, Japanese sweets, English tea bags, a green tea set, complimentary minibar including beer and wine, a coffee machine with capsules, etc.  There are some colorful yukatas and pillows which you can choose.   Also a DVD player, a Blu-ray player and a humidifier were placed in our room.  Then complimentary drinks, snacks, Japanese sweets and Häagen-Dazs ice cream are available at the lobby.  It couldn’t be better.  *Please note that there is no convenience store within walking distance.  You might want to buy your necessities before coming there.  Room service is not available.  Wifi reception was good in our room.  Then the ryokan is not perfect universal design.  There are few steps in-house, though.  A wheelchair is available to borrow.  If you bring people with weak feet, you might want to inform staff of it in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then Kyoto-style kaiseki food experience for dinner and breakfast was just divine.  It may be little challenging for western palates.  However, it’s worth it.  The food is definitely top notch.  The portion tends to be small.  *Please note that inform staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies or dietary needs.  Then there are few restaurants around the property.  The location is out of the way.  You may want to book a room including meals.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare it if you request on that day.  All food is served at a private room in the dining area.  *Not served in each room.  Then all staff tends to be proactive, warm, and helpful.  If you want to experience signature Japanese-specific hospitality with personal touch, you must stay there.  Only my issue is that it wouldn’t be easy to book a room, especially weekends.  Because this is one of very popular in Kyoto and there are only 13 rooms in-house.  Anyway, the best season to stay there would be except the summer season.  Because it’s extremely hot and humid in Kyoto between early July to mid Sep.  You may feel reluctant to soak in baths.  Also there would be many bugs around outdoor baths.  If you are a metropolitan, you may feel uncomfortable.  Free shuttle service is available from Kameoka Station at 13:30, 14:30, 15:30, 16:30 or 17:30.  You need to book it in advance.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  Check in and out times 2:00PM/11:00AM   Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Agoda
