My sister, niece and myself stayed here for four nights during October. We had the whole place to ourselves which was amazing. Keiko was very helpful with lots of suggestions for things to do in the neighbourhood, including coffee a couple of doors down. The B&B is well situated, in easy walking distance of the centre of town. This is... More

This was an absolute gem during our visit to Kyoto. In terms of service, it's more like a western B&B or rented apartment than a traditional ryokan (which typically serves meals). However, for those who are simply interested in staying in a traditional Japanese room with tatami floors and futon bedding, this is a wonderful choice! It offers the freedom... More

Echoing what many others have said this is a brilliant place to stay. It is a traditional small 2 storey house with two living rooms downstairs and two bedrooms upstairs (separated by a small hallway). The small bathroom (no shower, Japanese bath) and separate loo are downstairs. It worked perfectly for our family of four, as with no staff on... More

If you want to stay in a reasonably priced place with an authentic Kyoto experience this is the place! The B&B is a traditional Japanese style house. For our family of 4 it was perfect as the adults stayed in one room and the kids stayed in the other (it has 2 bedrooms). If you are tall make sure you... More

B&B Keiko is a authentic old Japanese style house located in a charming neighborhood with small shops. The house has two rooms upstairs with a common seating area, a bathroom and toilet downstairs. The best room is the room nearest the garden. Keiko is an amazing and wonderful host. The service is more than excellent, she gave us really good... More

This was the most unique stay of our 6 week stay. This traditional house is full of character and makes the perfect kyoto experience. The great tea house ippodo is right around the corner. Keiko is a wonderful host, thank you. Highly recommended!

Everything that everyone says about this place is true, and more. It's like living in an enlarged dolls house: the fragile beauty of sliding doors, wooden floors and tiny staircases. We were lucky, being off season, to have the place to ourselves and enjoy its serene beauty. The website is a bit misleading, since it implies that the place is... More

We stayed in Keiko B&B over the Christmas period for our group of 7. I simply love this ryokan for its old charm and the lovely and wonderful host, Keiko. The ryokan is as what most describe - warm, cosy, comfy futon beds. The ryokan is located near Kyoto City Hall subway, about 10 min walk and it's close to... More

I stayed in this Ryokan with my family for around 5 or 6 days before moving on to Osaka. The owner is an extremely nice and friendly lady. The house is around 90 years old and for such an old house it has been very well maintained. Everything is very clean and still in very good condition so no worries... More

We stayed here for three nights in October as part of our two week holiday in Japan. The accommodation is basic but very well located for the price. Breakfast is included at a cafe round the corner. The value however of staying here is the owner, Keiko. She is extremely welcoming, warm and eager to help you make the most... More
