Loved our stay!
The Hotel is very nice! It’s child friendly, clean and staff are some of the loveliest people we have experienced in our Hotel stay in Japan. I think the shared space downstairs really suited our family, to rest or read a book or eat. Our room was compact but we were able to use the space well.

Helpful, friendly staff in great location
This is a great hotel, especially for the price. We felt very welcome from the start. The staff are very helpful and speak some english. Great amenities with free toiletries, traditional pyjamas, coffee and snacks. We especially appreciated their attempts to be environmentally friendly. If you choose not to get your linen changed/room cleaned everyday they give you free drinks vouchers (which we used on local beer). There is a traditional (tattoo friendly) onsen a few minutes away which was great. Make sure you know the rules as it is well used by locals. Very convenient for Gion area.

This was our favourite place we stayed in during our two week trip to Japan. Everyone working here was so friendly and helpful. The hotel was sparkling clean and has small touches that went along. They offer a coffee and tea station which we enjoyed before heading out for a day of travel. The hotel manager also offers a wonderful tea ceremony you can reserve for a small fee. What a great opportunity for guests! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. It is an organized, well thought out and welcoming hotel.

Quiet neighbourhood, comfy stay.
Quick checkin and checkout. Having a mobile phone with data to borrow during the stay was a bonus. Reception came with free tea, coffee and snacks which was always welcome. Location is great, it is 10 minute walk from Gion district and a 6 minute walk to Sanjō station which connects north and south Kyoto, and its a quiet neighbourhood. Breakfast was a bit limiting, there could be more choice please! Room was on the small side with not much room for suitcases, as a suggestion raise the bed slightly to fit suitcases underneath!

Great coffee
This hotel is excellent! The staff all speak English very well and were so helpful. The coffee in the lobby was the best hotel coffee I have every had in Japan. I travel once a year to Japan and can say without a doubt that the coffee machines (De’Longhi) they have dispense the most delicious cup of coffee I’ve had in my travels throughout Japan. The breakfast was also outstanding as well.

hey gave me a phone.
It was amazing. We tried the small Japanese and twin western rooms. Japanese rooms are smaller than western rooms as definitely was the case with this hotel but this was made up with the extras including a smart phone with internet we could use to navigate the city, heat/smart toilets and a functional communal area with free tea and water. Though I was a bit lost at times staff seemed willing to help to help me find what I was after (eg Kenzan, and a ramen Restaurant). Location was a bit tucked away but easily within reach of some must see temples. The rooms are cheaper on as opposed to on site. I would highly recommend. Pijamas were comfy.

Great for every type of traveler!
This place seems fit for locals and foreign tourists alike. Located in Higashiyama in Eastern Kyoto, it is within walking distance to several temples yet still tucked away in a quiet residential neighborhood. It's easy to get downtown as the Sanjo Keihan subway station is nearby, but if Kawaramachi is your destination you're probably better off walking (it's that close). The Japanese-style room had fragrant tatami mats with comfy futons and floor cushions. The only complaint I have is that the bathroom door blocks access to and from the bathroom when open. That means I had to get out of the bathroom and put on my slippers really close to the hotel room entrance and then close the bathroom door before I could re-enter the bedroom; it made midnight bathroom trips a hassle. Breakfast was tasty and filling but I would have appreciated more options. There are two set meal choices: Japanese and Western, but only those who choose Western are allowed to have juice (that's not exactly the equivalent of miso soup if you ask me). I'd stay here again for the location and homey atmosphere, but if having OJ in the morning means foregoing fish and rice for eggs and toast that's exactly what I'll do!

A modern hotel with traditional style. Great lobby and staff. The bathroom is not so spacious for two people. The location is nice, next to a temple, but not super close to the more crowded areas with restaurants and shops.
