Tamahan Ryokan

Beautiful tranquil inn in the most scenic area of Kyoto. A step out the door puts you in the heart of Gion but my room opening out to the garden couldn't have been more serene. The hostess was lovely and very attentive and made me feel very welcome, even putting a tiny Canadian flag out at the end of the alley to help me find the place. Breakfast was bountiful and delicious and I loved the wooden bath, shockingly comfortable.

I was very disappointed in my 7 day stay here. The main woman was irritated with my family the moment she greeted us. She seemed very unhappy every time we asked for something like a spoon or a cup and in most cases her response was "No, sorry". All of us got sick as the place was very drafty and the heat didn't work properly. On our last day, my one year old who had a fever was still asleep at the checkout time. The main woman asked me to wake him up and leave. Maybe I am from a different culture but I felt it was very cruel. I didn't feel welcome at the place. I didn't feel there was any respect for my family or my culture. We stayed in 4 different places while in Japan and this one was the worst by far.

Quick Facts - authentic Japanese ryokan experience - excellent food - excellent service - clean I debated over a 4 or 5 star rating for this hotel and eventually settled on 4 for two reasons: I stayed on a lower floor room and could hear the people above me quite and the room I stayed in is beginning to look at bit "tired". HOWEVER, if you are seeking a true Japanese Ryokan experience then Tamahan Ryokan is an excellent choice. The inn keepers are kind and attentive and speak just enough English to get you by. The hotel is located in an interesting part of Kyoto with many older buildings and streets to explore and is close enough to transit to get you pretty much anywhere you need to go. The food (we paid for breakfast and dinner service) has been excellent: delicious, fresh, beautifully prepared and presented. For Western travellers this is an unusual type of lodging and I would only caution that if you need your room for business purposes or are recovering from a long journey (i.e. jet lag) you may wish to opt for your usual hotel instead and save this lodging for when you can really enjoy the unique experience it is. I am travelling for work and found that, after several hours of sitting on the floor and trying to work, my non-bendy body needed to move! 🙂 All in all, however, a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend a Ryokan and certainly Tamahan Ryokan to anyone who wishes to take their experience of authentic Japan a step further.
