Ryokan Shimizu is a Welcoming Traditional Japanese Inn

What's a Ryokan Shimizu Room Include?

This traditional Japanese inn in Kyoto offers 12 traditionally styled Ryokan rooms, all with a private bathroom that includes a towel and toiletries for each guest. Each of the air-conditioned rooms features a TV, refrigerator, and free Wi-Fi access. The entire property, including all guest rooms, is 100% smoke-free.

What Amenities are Available?

The Ryokan Shimizu offers Japanese lime hot spa baths, in two large private bathing rooms. Reservations are required, so contact the hotel in advance if you'd like to take advantage of this relaxing retreat during your stay in Kyoto. Rental bikes and computers are also available through the hotel, for an additional fee. They also offer luggage storage, so if you have a late departure or an early arrival, the hosts will take care of your luggage for you. 

What are the Rates Like at the Ryokan Shimizu?

Three types of affordable rooms can be found at the Ryokan Shimizu, including single, twin, and triple. Single rooms start at around JPY 6,480, or approximately $55 USD per night. Double rooms start at around JPY 10,800, or $91. A triple room starts at around JPY 16,200, or $136.

What’s There to Do Nearby?

Though the Ryokan Shimizu is set in a quiet Kyoto neighborhood, it is within easy walking distance of many activities, including sight-seeing at the Nishi and Higashi Hongan-ji temples and many beautiful gardens. You will also encounter many shopping streets featuring handcrafted wares. Plus, the hotel is just a quick, seven minute walk from Kyoto Station, a major transportation hub in Kyoto. 

What's the Bottom Line?

The Ryokan Shimizu offers clean and comfortable traditional Japanese-style rooms, with a welcoming and helpful staff that speaks English. It's important to note that this hotel does have a strict curfew for guest security, and the entrance door is locked at midnight: so, be sure to check your itinerary closely. If you’re looking for a luxury stay in Kyoto that won’t break your budget, consider the Ryokan Shimizu hotel.
