8/10 Very good

We stayed at Ryokan Nenrinbo recently and had a wonderful stay. The room was beautiful and clean with a view of the cherry blossom trees from outside our window, and the futons were super comfortable. They had complimentary hot water and sencha for us to have each morning, which was a really nice touch. The only thing we were disappointed in was the food - we had originally paid to have breakfast and dinner included in our stay but we disliked the dinner the first night so much that we ended up not having any other meals at the hotel. I would recommend booking a room but skipping the food and instead getting to try all the wonderful other dining options in Kyoto.
