Wonderful Stay
We had a wonderful time at Rinn Tofukuji Riverside! Just a 3 minutes walk from JR Tofukuji Station which is 1 stop away from JR Kyoto Station. Staffs are always smiley and welcoming and their English is good. The best part is their toilet is also a dryer room. We managed to wash and dry our clothes overnight! Will definitely be back if we are in Kyoto! Thank you!

Excellent Quiet Location
Clean, roomy, and convenient location. We stayed for two nights and felt the room was really quite roomy compared to several other places we stayed throughout Japan. There was a fridge, sink, hot pot, tea, coffee, and two chambered restroom. We did not expect there would also be a river view and that was a great surprise. For dinner we enjoyed Dragon Burger where the service and menu were excellent. We then grabbed snacks at the local family mart so that we could have a little breakfast before setting out for Fushimi Inari first daylight. (The shrine is just one train stop away). It was perfect and allowed us to get an early start so that we could see tons of sites on our journey that day. Staying here you will get a very local experience and it will be quite a bit quieter than many places.

Fantastic !
This property is located a short distance from Kyoto Station by train, then 5 minutes walk. The area is very quiet a perfect place to relax without the noise of the big city. Easy connected to different areas. Large bedroom with small kitchen, toilet is separated by the japanese bath. The reception is manager by young people and they speak english always happy to assist you. Traditional and secure. Good price. Enjoy my stay.

Very convenient location near JR line.
Great location near the Tofukuji train station, but hard to find.

Very good 8.0
This guest house is small and in a quiet residential area. Rooms are self-contained apartments including a comfortable bed and bath with shower which had hot water and good pressure. The shower head is rather small however and the bath too small to lay out in, although it is deeper than most, so you can still cover your knees. The kitchenette was handy, including a hob, microwave and fridge freezer. It was a bit irritating that you have to request utensals/plates etc from reception, we felt these should just be left in the room. Having a washer machine in the room was also helpful, allowing a mid-holiday refresh of the wardrobe (well suit case), with powder available from reception for JPY100 per wash. A feature we did really like was the providing of a mobile phone in the room with international calls and local 4G data access, at know extra charge. This made getting out and about in Kyoto much easier, as we were only using wifi on our personal phones. Wifi at the hotel is provided in all rooms, but we did find it a bit slow. Nearby there are various restaurants and convenience stores. 5mins walk away is Tofakuji station, with regular JR local trains taking just 6mins to reach the main Kyoto station and 45mins if you want to head over to Nara.

Went out of their way to give me a good experience
When I first booked this place I thought I was going to make it during their check-in hours. On the day of my stay, I realized I wasn't going to make it there on time so I dialed the number and told them of my circumstances. They placed my room key in a secure locked box and e-mailed me specific instructions to open the box at any hour of the night. In addition, because this isn't a hotel per se, there were other non-standard amenities like a washing machine, a kitchenette, and even a mobile phone guests could rent during their stay (all of which I didn't use). This resulted in a more spacious and comfortable room. Regarding the surrounding area, this place is in a quiet residential neighborhood and a short walk away from Tofukuji Station. The name is on the side of the building in big, glowing letters so it was easy to find at night even when I made a wrong turn. There's a convenience store between the station and the guesthouse so going hungry wasn't an issue. Checking out was a breeze and the staff were super-nice. All in all, this was an amazing deal and I'd recommend it to anyone who wants to stay near Central Kyoto.

Helpful Staff
This was a great little hotel close by the train station, which was very convenient. The people were so friendly and helpful. Left cell phone in taxi and hotel tracked it down and arranged for it to be sent to us at hotel. Never expected to see it again!

Little gem in quiet neighbourhood
Rinn was a fantastic find - right by the station with easy access into town/nightlife/all the main sights - with a couple of must sees (Tokufuji shrine) just 10 mins walk away. Basic facilities but with your own kitchenette (oven hob, kettle, microwave, fridge) and a washer/dryer. Very useful. Super nice service and they stored our luggage on the last day so we could sightsee in the morning before heading to Kyoto station (just one stop away) and making our way to Tokyo for next stage of holiday. Clean, well maintained, superb location (not much around it but I would recommend Dragon Burger round the corner), lots of convenience stores for water, late night food requirements! Bathroom was clean - bath tub/shower in a wet room - and a TV in the bath! Amazing. Would 100% recommend this to anyone who just needs a good easy location and a reasonable price. I would happily stay there again on my next trip.
