Good location near Kyoto station and was very easy to find from there, about a 5min walk. Free wifi in room. Well kept. The keeper was very friendly and ever so helpful. The walls were a little thin so could here people walking in the hall but not a problem, was minimal and slept very well.

Excellent budget choice and easy to find on foot from kyoto station, good Japanese experience with beds on floors & cute communal areas, felt like staying in a "home stay", staff are excellent, friendly and helpful and they keep the place immaculately clean for a shared accommodation type. Free coffee etc. You can hear noise as the walls are thin,... More

Easy walking distance from Kyoto Station ( 10 minutes) Room was comfortable with a lovely soft futon. Nice building with lots of corridors Our main problem was the noise, whilst we accept that staying in this type of accommodation is not without noise due to the rooms joining each other, but what we did not expect was to be kept...

Budget guesthouse in a fantastic location in Kyoto (10 mins walk from the station, 15 from Gion). The main appeal of this inn was the price, as we'd opted for an expensive onsen hotel in another part of our trip that blew most of our accommodation budget! You do get what you pay for with the price - no meals... More

Spent a night here. We got a big dadami room in excellent condition. The guesthouse was extremely clean, nicely decorated and well-organized. Also has a good location, for being right in front of higashi honganji. It takes 10 min walk from kyoto station. If you are looking for a traditional and superb guesthouse with budget price and great location, this... More

Lodging in Kyoto is expensive like the rest of Japan - so if you want to experience traditional Japanese style living on a budget then this is a good place to stay. Kahori is very hospitable, speaks & writes fluent English and is very prompt on the email. The Inn is a 10 minute walk from the station, but if... More

I stayed here after reading excellent reviews and I wasn't disappointed. I have never stayed in a traditional guest house before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Guest Inn Chita couldn't have been better. Only a 10 minute walk from Kyoto JR train station. As soon as the owner Kahori introduced herself I felt at home. Kahori speaks excellent... More

The inn is an old japanese house. Located in a small alley opposite Higashi Honganji Temple, 15 minutes walk from Kyoto Station. The hostess was very welcoming and she spoke fluent English. I emailed her the possibility to drop my luggage before check in time and she replied quickly. I got to check-in early around 1pm though, so my luggage... More
