Beautiful, traditional, relaxing.
We spent three nights at Motonago and loved every minute of it. We arrived around 1 hour before check in and while the room wasn't quite ready the staff couldn't have been any more helpful or welcoming. They took our luggage to storage, gave us a map of the local area with a couple of suggestions of where we could visit nearby and gave us a couple of umbrellas to protect us from the rain! We had also been upgraded to a room with a private toilet and garden at no extra cost! When we returned we received a warm welcome again (as we did every time we arrived at the hotel over the coming days) and were quickly shown to room where we were served some Japanese green tea. We then took the opportunity to try the onsen bath (you can reserve the bath for private use, 1 hour in the afternoon/evening and 30 minutes on the morning) which was unbelievable! So relaxing. We went twice a day and would recommend to do the same. It's a great way to start the day and also nice to unwind after a day of sightseeing or walking. Location is ideal, situation in the old part of town, walking distance to many landmarks and surrounded by nice cafes and restaurants. The rooms are in the traditional Japanese style and are clean, well maintained and the WiFi coverage is excellent. We slept on futons which were comfortable and can be made more so by adding extra bedding if you require (just ask at reception). Highly recommended!

Excellent Location and Comfortable
Excellent location in the old town of Kyoto, only 10 minutes walk to Kiyomizudera temple and less than 5 minutes walk to Kodaiji Temple. Gion district is around 7-8 minutes walk. The Japanese breakfast i had for three days were excellent and really delicious The facilities are outdated but very clean The service especially the first day I arrived i found it so ordinary the staff were all in a hurry and some of them did not speak English well The futon bed was superb and really comfortable, the size of the room is very small 0nly 14m2

Amazing night at Motonago
The service was incredible, they were attentive to every part of our stay from check-in to meals to giving us umbrellas when anticipating rain. The food was amazing, incredibly fresh. You could also sign up for a private hour in their bath which was like a small onsen experience. Overall amazing and comfortable and would recommend to anyone staying a night in Kyoto. Well worth the price!

Amazing! We loved it
We loved everything about this place - the hospitality, the food, the onsen bath (which you can reserve for an hour of private use), the location, and the attention to detail. We stayed in the "Syoen" room - it had a lovely private garden and a private bathroom (outside). I also really appreciated that they let us bring our luggage early and leave it after we checked out so we could maximize our time exploring Kyoto. We hope to go back one day!

No Detail Overlooked!
This ryokan is in an excellent location. Our room was very comfortable, the bath completely relaxing and the service outstanding. We had both the Western and Japanese breakfasts. They were well thought out, impeccably served and delicious. Agree that this ryokan is definitely to be recommended.
