Fabulous 8.8 From 102 reviews

Very good 8.0
Nice place for a big family to stay
The overall stay was good. When we arrived, the host was not there, but he left the key and a note in the front desk giving the instruction on how to get to the room. The check in was very smooth. The room has four double beds and lots of space, big enough for a big family to stay. The location is very convenient, close to many bus stations, shops and restaurants. The only drawback was that the wifi did not work well, in fact, very slow, and this was very inconvenient.

great apartment-style unit
The owner was a lovely, friendly man. The unit was clean and spacious. Bathroom was a little tight so definitely one person in there at a time but another person could easily wash up at the kitchen sink. Only a few minutes away from a subway station and right outside, we were able to catch a bus to take us right to Kyoto station.

Great Family Stay
We enjoyed our stay. Great for families. There were 4 beds and the room was clean. There’s only 4 units (1 on each floor) and a good Korean restaurant on the 2nd floor. They were very nice. It was nice they will help do your laundry.

Comfortable room
The room is large with plenty of room to “live” and many beds so the 5 people staying in the room were all comfortable. We enjoyed our stay!

Loved Sarangbang
Saranbang Guesthouse was surprisingly great. It’s run by a couple and his son and they are so nice. Everyone in Kyoto was so nice. We got the apartment in floor 4(1 per floor) and it was very spacious. Has a table and chairs and a small kitchen. The beds are super comfortable. It has air conditioning and heater and they work great. The bathroom is a little small but the shower was heaven, didn’t bother us at all. They had extra blankets and pillows and sandals for walking inside. The second floor is a little restaurant that is open I think from 5:00 to 11:00 We really recommend staying here. The attention at a hotel will never be this nice and our room at the Tokyo hotel was much smaller than this apartment. They also do your laundry at no cost and you cam ask them any information about the city.

As advertised, very clean and nice comfortable room. Location, although a little bit outside the downtown core, is still very convenient to visit the temples around town. A bit noisy at times, but nothing major.

"Anaba" spot in Kyoto.
Rommel was spacious for a family of 5 with 2 tall boys. Bus stop was very close by and train station was in reasonable distance. Even though it's located right by major street, it was very quiet at night. Amenities are basic. The owner family was very cheerful and welcoming.
