"Arashiyama Benkei was established in 1969 on the historical and scenic land known as Arashiyama. Thriving spring cherry blossoms, red autumn leaves blanketing the mountains, and cultural and historic landmarks give Arashiyama the distinction of being one of Japan's leading sightseeing destinations. Just upstream from (west of) the Togetsu-kyo Bridge, which marks the center of the area, and situated alongside the murmurs of the Oi River, is Arashiyama Benkei. This ryokan accommodations, built in the traditional sukiya-zukuri architecture style reminiscent of antique tea houses, is not simply a place to rest and eat, but also houses facilities in which guests can enjoy Arashiyama's onsen (hot springs) and indulge in traditional Kyoto cuisine. Please visit here to experience the utmost in comfort and relaxation."

It was close to Togetsukyo and very convenient location for sightseeing. The meal, the room, the service and the hot spring was just as we would wish, and we spent greatly opulent time. There were next day's event information in the room, and they took good care of us when we asked about sightseeing for the next day. The water of the hot spring was soft, and it made our skin smooth after bath, so it was a good bath. There are samui as well as yukata, and it is very relaxing. We had breakfast in a banquet room where we had a view of Hozugawa and Togetsukyo in a good note. We would like to visit there again. However, it would have been nice if there were some water to drink. In addition, because my husband shave with a shaver, it would've been nice to have shaving cream in the room. Thank you for your hospitality. + More

A friend has suggested this hotel to me as a hotel with delicious meals. I was very satisfied by both breakfast and dinner. But concerning the room and the bath I can only say that they were disappointing. They were old and there's nothing one could do about this, but they were a bit dark and cold... The bath on the ground floor was lighted well and the hot spring was very pleasant. It would have been even better if I could go there 24 hours per day. Next morning the next mistress-to-be of the hotel and the room maid saw me off and stayed there until I was out of sight, and this has impressed me very much. + More

I chose this hotel because I wanted to have a hot spring bath in Kyoto. The taste of Kyo kaiseki was just right, and also mild and healthy for body. I was impressed by the food that was beyond my expectation. The water of the hot spring is colorless, transparent and thick. I have a good impression because they seem to have a cycling reheating system, do sterilizations and add no water. The service of the staff is polite and unobtrusive. Some hotels have self-service teapots and containers but I feel more attentiveness for customers at this hotel. It was well balanced overall and I had a very satisfying stay. + More

The building itself is old and the stairs are steep with lots of steps, but as improvement was made to make them easier to walk, my parents who visited with me didn't really find it hard to use even though they have trouble walking. The toilet and washroom were beautifully refurbished and very user-friendly. There are many amenities. The roomwear is also comfortable and convenient as I could wear it outside. There is no unusual dishes (rather, I don't like those so I'd prefer if they do not have any), but the meal is really delicious. My parents finished up everything even though they don't eat much usually. The hot bath was comfortable even though the onsen was slimy and the waitress told us to be careful as it is slippery. It's a pity that it was hectic as the check-in time is 4pm and check-out time is at 10am. + More
