Fabulous 8.6 From 45 reviews

Good 6.0
This place was not comfortable - the space had been carved into too many rooms, and every space was cramped. The shared bathroom area was ridiculous - you have to turn sideways to get down the hall. The walls are paper thin and you can easily hear through them. The 'free breakfast' considered of toast and one egg. We paid way over 10,000 yen per night for the 3 person "family room", which was far too much. Two positives: the location is good, and the staff were generally very helpful and nice.

Traditional stay in Kyoto.
Great place if you want a more traditional stay while in Kyoto. Staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. The house is a little aged which gives it a rustic feel with the tatami rooms and decor. The futons are pretty comfortable considering but still is a futon, so expect that. The only real negative is that it's in the residential area so the train station is a bit of a walk, although there are buses nearby and you can rent bicycles. Overall great stay in Kyoto and would definitely do it again.

Nice accomodation
Locate near train station and subway. Give choice to customer to choose mode of transportation to arrive here. There are tons of other hotel here. Near the main road. Look safe. I arrive here at night and everything went smooth. Shared bathroom at ground from about 9 and toilet about 4. Hair dryer, iron, weighting scale available. The counter have lots of guide for the city. Wifi is good. Inside room is clean with futon, tv and fridge. Overview, it was a good 1 night backpacking style stay.
