great location, traditional, kind, delicious meal 良いロケーションで、部屋も綺麗でご飯も美味しかったです。
It is located near the bus stop, you can reach here within 20 minutes from Kyoto Station. It is 20 minute's walk to Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Kamo-gawa river, 10 minute's walk to Kohdaiji-temple. You can walk also around Gion. This Ryokan has very traditional room. They explain about room and bring meals to the room. I had only breakfast, It was beautiful and delicious. The best thing I was happy that they brought us tee after we came here and come buck here. It makes us relaxed so much! The public bathroom is small. I think It is a little bit uncomfortable, if here is crowded. But you can also use the private bathroom in your room. 京都駅からバス20分ほどで、最寄りのバス停から近く、旅館の周辺に清水寺や祇園など観光地がたくさんあったので移動しやすい最高のロケーションでした。 朝食もたっぷりで、全て美味しかったです。また、旅館についた後にお茶を部屋に持ってきてくださり、そのお茶も美味しくとてもリラックスできました。 お風呂が小さめだったので、混雑している日は少し大変かもしれませんが、部屋にもお風呂があるので問題ないかと思います。

Real Japanese Experience
Location is perfect. The staff were wonderful. We had a Japanese style room with breakfast. Breakfast was served in the room (in the Japanese way). They were very attentive. Breakfast was laid out beautifully, delicious meals, fantastic onsen. We believe they selectively chose the employees with good English to engage with us. Very helpful with suggesting where to go in Kyoto.

Fine traditional place to stay.
The highlight of our visit was the traditional dinner on one of our nights, served to the six of us with all kinds of Japanese dishes. For us Americans, it was quite unusual, and the children enjoyed it as much as we did--perhaps more. We had the traditional breakfast the following morning, and service at all times was exemplary. Beds on the floor were quite comfortable, and we almost felt as if we were in a local home. Staff even helped with ticketing back to Narita, with clear written instructions on how we were to proceed on the trains. A very nice stay.

Amazing Staff
We decided to spend one night in a Ryokan to get the full experience of Kyoto. I am so glad we picked Kinoe. The staff was amazing. The man that works the front desk in the evenings is super nice, knowledgeable, and he genuinely wants to help. He also speaks English very clearly. We arrived and they held our bags till check-in time. (Note: they don't lock your bags up like modern hotels do, but it's such a small quiet hotel, it didn't bother us.) He gave us a 5 minute introduction to Kyoto (paper map, highlighter, and pen w notes). He practically explains it step by step like a navigation device. We selected the breakfast and dinner option, and you should too! Dinner was amazing and included a lot of food (drinks are extra). It's served in your room while you wear a japanese robe that the hotel provides. (I had to call the front desk guy to show us how to put it on.) A server brought us each course and explained each dish and the ingredients (also an English speaker, but some of the ingredients are very local so some Googling might be needed). We love to eat and learn. I made the mistake of scheduling a 8:30am tour the next day. DO NOT do that, if you are doing breakfast with Kinoe. We rushed through what I thought was one of the most intricate and beautiful breakfasts I've ever had. Warning it's a lot of food. I would say plan for 1 hour to properly enjoy -- this is not an eggs and sausage kind of spread. It was delicious. The hotel held our bags for the day because we didn't have time to transfer to our next hotel. We came back from our full day tour, and our favorite front desk guy was there again. He learned about our travel plans to go to Tokyo after Kyoto and offered to get our bullet train tickets for us for a discount price through the hotel. He's so knowledgeable that he again walked us through step by step on how to get to the train, which platform, how long. He's truly a Kyoto travel expert! I later found out that he went to purchase the tickets and delivered to our next Kyoto hotel. How nice is that? This is what I mean by genuinely wants to help and is kind. I would highly recommend Kinoe to anyone that wants to experience a traditional ryokan.

Excellent service
Top notch service by the staff. Everyone was very friendly and super helpful - from recommendations, to helping map out, reserving our next leg of travel and arranging the cab to the station made our travel stress free! The food was wonderful and location was great.
