    Very good

    Nice spacious room, in traditional Japanese style. First night we had a Japanese style breakfast, but our room attendent exlained after the first breakfast, that they offer Western breakfast too, despite the fact that we finished almost all. But in all fairness, one typical Japanese breakfast was enough for us and we did order Western for the next day.

    We had a comfortable stay and enjoyed the experience a lot, I find it rather expensive and would say room rate should (considerably) be less...

    The fabulous Kyoto style dinner was a great experience, the presentation, service, friendliness and excellent location in the heart of Gion was perfect for our weekend break. The onsen was another nice touch.

    Superb

    Wonderful service. Quiet yet central location next to Yasaka shrine. Even during the Gion Festival we were able to sleep quietly. The hotel makes a laptop available in the lobby so you can check your emails. The hotel staff made reservations for restaurants and gave us advice about the area. Most of all though, our room attendant, was adorable. We hope to come back to Kyoto again and we would definitely like to stay at Hatanaka again.

    We were happy with the bathroom, but some people may say it is a bit small.

    Excellent location. It is a large ryokan, but yet it gives you the sense of intimacy. Great onsen.

    Dinner is good but priced on the up side, when compared to the other options in the vicinities.

    Our stay with our 8 month old baby was lovely. The most gracious, hospitable staff and beautiful rooms and facilities. The breakfast and kaiseki dinner we enjoyed were delicious. The public baths were amazing. No detail was overlooked and we were very sad to leave.
