Traditional Guest House
The guest house seemed very traditional and I really wanted that experience. The bed was not as comfortable as most hotels, but I was able to sleep fine. It was very clean and nice. I would recommend staying here!

Good location, good facilities, and good owner
The place was very nice and actually pretty new according to the owner. The owner was also a very nice guy. The room I stayed in and all the facilities were very clean and nice. The location was also super convenient being so close to Kyoto station. Definitely would recommend to anyone going to Kyoto.

Very good 8.0
Nice guesthouse close to Kyoto station
Very nice guesthouse, Japanese style room with comfortable futons. Just one shared shower and two toilets for the whole thing, maybe not enough when everything is booked. Very good location but the guesthouse itself is in a back alley and it takes a few tries and a bit of patience to find.
