Cute boutique hotel
This boutique hotel was a perfect place for my husband and I on our trip to Japan. It is not totally central, but it is close enough to old Gion, the restaurant district, and the street markets. It is about a 20 minute walk to each, which for us was perfect. The only issue we had was that the bed was pretty uncomfortable. It is a traditional Japanese style bed that is low to the ground with minimal support. Upon check out on our final day, we saw a sign that says feel free to ask for extra padding for your bed if it is uncomfortable. I wish they said this to us at check in rather than having a sign that is in the corner where we never went. I would have loved extra padding considering we paid the most for this hotel in our 2 week stay across Japan. The breakfast was pretty good, there are different breads with spreads, yogurt with different toppings, espresso, coffee and a bento box with small bites.

Tall guy would return !
We really enjoyed our stay here. The best part of our stay was the amazing hosts who greeted us and helped answer our questions. Absolutely helpful, funny and kind. A shout out to Martin, from Sweden who was our main contact. Thank you Martin! The room was clean, quiet and i managed to jam my 198cm body into the space available !

No better place to stay in Kyoto
First rate accommodations, service and location. Gracious hosts were extremely helpful at all times. Breakfast was great with lovely bento boxes filled with delicious local organic vegetables, plus rice, soups, yoghurt, cereal and even toast and local jams. Great coffee, espresso, lattes, etc. Beautifully appointed rooms with everything you could possibly need, and spotlessly clean. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

A quiet delight
Very nice hotel in a quiet area, and only a short walk from the hustle and bustle of Gion. The staff are very helpful and the handy phone you are provided to walk around with is a brilliant feature. Would definently recommend.
