Drawing many repeat visitors, the Ryokan Yuhara lets you save a few yen while exploring Kyoto. The friendliness of the staff, as well as its passable English, more than compensates for the spartan amenities. Especially rewarding is a springtime stay, when the cherry-blossom trees are in full bloom along the nearby Takase-gawa. The hotel is a 15-minute walk from the hot neighborhoods of Gion and Ponto-cho and sits right on a small river. There is an 11 pm curfew.

Ryokan Yuhara is a small, quaint, classic inn, operated by a lovely and gracious hostess. (Ask to see her wonderful bonsai collection.) The rooms are comfortable and clean. The inn is convenient to public transportation and within a reasonable walking distance to downtown Kyoto. A truly classic Japanese experience, not to be missed. Visit the restaurant of Mr. Nakamura, a few doors down the street, to enhance the experience.
