Ryokan Hirashin is a traditional Japanese inn with rooms that offers complete tatami mat flooring and futon bedding.

A stay at the inn costs about 10,000 to 30,000 JPY per night, including private bathrooms and yukata robes that guests can wear. The inn also offers public hot spring baths where guests can freely relax and enjoy time without the rush. If onsens are full, guests can opt for the massage sessions instead.

Breakfast is served in Japanese-style dishes, which are served daily at the banquet room. Dinner, on the other hand, is served in the rooms of the guests.

The location of the ryokan is accessible to attractions like the Kyoto Imperial Palace, where visitors can visit during their stay at the inn.

Rides from airports of Itami and Kobe can be taken when guests plan to stay at Ryokan Hirashin.

Due to COVID-19, guests must book under the guidelines implemented by the Government of Japan.

Ryokan Hirashin

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great ryokan experience. Kyoto downtown. Very central to all the activities. Love the spa

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Great location and friendly staff. Loved the room and the breakfast was delicious. Very close to a train station and nishiki market. Really enjoyed the bath that they had too. Went when no one else was around so I had the place to myself. Great experience. It's a must while in Japan.

⭐⭐⭐⭐
We booked this ryokan during new year so the prices were a bit high. The service was excellent, some of the staff spoke English which was a plus for us. The location is also great, being close to the subway and Nishiki market. Meals weren't part of the cost, so we had to pay extra for the dinner. The food was great, more than enough for us. The public bath was okay. Overall we were pleased with our stay.

Not worth it
We wanted to experience a Ryokan and the Japanese tradition and we were well disappointed. The first room we got smelled like cigarets. At first, when we told them, they only wanted to spray around, I had to hold my point to have a new room. The rooms are dark and old. It really needs to be refresh. Scratch on the walls, white paint turning yellow etc. The dinner was ok... but not worth it. It did not seem very fresh. The breakfast was terrible. I would not recommend this place.

Decent place, great location
We spent 3 nights in Kyoto and wanted to spend one night in a ryokan. Hirashin was clean, comfortable, and provided us the experience of in-room tea table, sleeping on a mat, and bath house. We also chose the breakfast option, which was a traditional Japanese breakfast, so be prepared for miso soup, rice, and fish and veggie dishes. I enjoyed the breakfast, my wife did not (personal tastes). Hirashin is in a good location, easy walk to the market, several excellent local restaurants, walkable to Gion during the day. We bussed to the Philosopher's Walk, toured the large temple at the start of the Walk, then spent rest of the day walking back along the Walk, thru Gion, lunch on the river, thru the market, etc. Three-stars is not meant to reflect any negatives, but Hirashin is truly just an "average" hotel in the Kyoto area.

Good location, average venue, poor Wi-Fi
Location: 8/10 Cleanliness: 8/10 Service: 6/10 Wi-Fi: 2/10 Comfort: 8/10 Good location, within walking distance of several subway lines. Lots of food options nearby. Service was friendly but can be a bit slow at times. Check in was at 4pm (and not a moment earlier). Wi-Fi was free but quite useless with constant drop outs and slow performance. The room was spacious for 2 people and kept clean each day, although the venue is showing some wear and tear throughout. The hot baths in the basement was well enjoyed after a long day of sight seeing. We paid 33,000 yen per night which is expensive for a venue of this quality, however, this is peak season and the price was in line with increased demand. Overall, I was reasonably satisfied with my visit, but would not look to stay here again.

Not up to expectation
This was far from what we expected which was a more relaxing experience. The check in staff was unfriendly, the reception was run down and smoke filled. The whole hotel is run down, looks more like a camp site, very tacky and feels unclean. The corridors dingy and dark. The rooms themselves were huge by Japanese standards but again, even though I know it was clean, it all felt very dirty and unhygenic. The bathroom and toilet linoleum flooring again felt very sticky and dirty. I liked the low table and chairs in the room, nice tea service. The bedding that was put out at night was fine, very warm doonas. The breakfast at this place is abhorrent. Very happy to try local cuisine, but needs to be adjusted to western palette somewhat. We sat through the first breakfast, but the next morning was just deplorable and had to leave. Again the room, down a dingy dark corridor where breakfast was served with an elderly lady standing on top of you left a lot to be desired. We opted for the dinner service which although overpriced, was the only saving grace of this place. The lady serving was delightful, there was plentiful food. Dingy, dark, unmoving staff, smoke filled, felt dirty. Location is good to access the main shopping and local sights.

Ryokan rooms in a modern block ?
Wanted to try a ryokan, this wasn't really the traditional building we had expected. All the staff were very friendly and the location is ideal to explore the Nishiki market and surrounding area. The rooms are traditional but housed in a modern shell plus there are Onsen in the basement. Our room had a bit of wear / damage, the air con was noisy and didn't cool the room at all. We'd opted for the evening meal in our room, which all came at once, we weren't sure what many of the dishes were or what order to eat them. Breakfast was all Asian, fish, rice porridge, chicken / tofu broth. It was an experience but for us, the room without the food would have been a better option.
