More about Tawaraya Ryokan

More about Tawaraya Ryokan

With over 300 years in the business, this is one of the oldest ryokan in Kyoto. From the Edo period, through the Meiji period aristocrats and daimyo frequented the inn. Through providing excellent service and cultivating a valued reputation, the inn was able to prosper over its 300-year existence. The inn prides itself most on its famous service, which goes above and beyond that of which is expected. Guests who stay at Tawaraya will experience true hospitality, and will feel more like royalty than customers. Everything is of the highest standard and the inn makes no compromises in terms of providing their guests with the finest food and service. The amenities provided are of the highest quality to provide a truly homely and welcoming environment.

不愧为御三家之一,从设施到服务都给我们以深刻印象。尽管旅馆外已经是21世纪的现代都市,进入旅馆似乎回到了400年前的世界,那份古朴和宁静是绝大部分现代酒店难以模仿的;还有那份把艺术真品挂在客人房间的自信和真诚,默默地表达着一个时光亲历者的过往,令我尤其印象深刻;服务生态度亲切自然又大气庄重,让人如沐春风。料理是怀石级别的,尽管和吉兆比还有差距,但已经很不错了。总之是难得的体验,对得起价格。

完美无缺!虽然花了一支肾6的钱,但是这一晚的感受值回每一分钱。房间的设计难怪乔布斯老爷会钟情于此,晚餐提供了怀石料理,虽然无法与顶级的菊乃井媲美,但是也算是优质了。第二天的早餐选了西式的依然美味。每个房间有助手帮忙收拾,虽然只住了短短一晚,但真正感受到御三家首席的风采。也特别感谢JAPANICAN与JTB可以帮忙订到这家店,以后一定再去!
