Sakura Ryokan, Kyoto, Japan
A 10 minute walk from Kyoto Station, the Sakura Ryokan offers an excellent stay at a fraction of the price of some of its more distinguished neighbors. Recently opened, the ryokan is bright and cozy and offers a number of traditional rooms all of which are ensuite. Rooms are a little small but they are perfectly functional and are all finished to a high standard. It is well worth upgrading to one of the Tea ceremony or Sukiya rooms, which come with their own small garden; a novelty inside a three story building! There is free internet in the lobby area and guests can also make use of the laundry facilities.
