Ohara no Sato is set in a gorgeous location close to Kyoto but far enough away to feel like you`re totally surrounded by country and nature. Close to the forest and mountain hiking, there is a beautiful stream the flows just in front of the property that is very melodic. The service was pleasant, although not fully accommodating of meal requests, and the gardens in the back of the building were lovely, although we did not have access to them except for viewing due to our room placement. The onsen was clean and lovely. The full kotatsu set-up in our room was great (minus backed-chairs)! The food was delicious but fairly minimal. We booked a room at peak season during the height of cherry blossoms, so our room was very expensive as to be expected, but the value for 300 USD was a little disappointing. I would not pay this again for the quality of the amenities and decor, which were average for even a budget hotel. The hard fiber-padded pillows could use improvement, the room lighting was a single harsh double-ringed bulb ceiling light, there was no sink on our floor (4 rooms), and our room was very minimal with no view as thick foliage 3 feet from the window blocked everything.
the room was neat and the futons confortable. staff intruding in our room without permission
the hotel had an excellent location, the room was a ryokan and it had its own bathroom and toilet and a small hall. for hotels in japan pretty large.
The Japanese style rooms were comfortable, tea pot and cups available. Check-out at 10 am. Seemed not very clean outside the rooms.
Big room, nice staff, great location Bed
I booked a Japanese style of room. The Japanese style room is really bigger than the former standard room I booked in another Kyoto hotel with the similar rent. Also, I felt it was interesting and comfortable to sleep on the floor. The room was warm enough in November due to the air-conditioner. The towels were put in a clean box in the bedroom, but not in the bath room as usual. So I felt a little embarrassed after showing when I had to go out of the bath room to pick up the towels, where the point is "naked"...
