A friend and I stayed here in January and found the experience positively luxurious after the small-living of Tokyo. Our private twin tatami room was very comfortable and warm, bathrooms clean, breakfast tasty and the staff helpful. There was free wifi and inexpensive in-house laundry, common areas and a cool cafe downstairs. Added bonus of cheap bicycle hire (which is... More

My partner and I stayed here for 5 nights in August. My partner had lived in Kyoto for a year before, so we knew the city quite well, Even so, the staff were really friendly and gave us a bus and city map when we checked in. We had a private double room, which was great, very traditional Japanese -... More

Nice guest house located about one station away from Gion (or a short 15-20 mins wlk). The guest house is also very closely located to the Kiyumizu Temple (10 mins walk). The twin tatami room that we stayed in was nice and averagely sized. However, it was a little bit too cold during winter month. The shower room is located... More

I had an excellent time staying at Gojo Guest House. The guest house had a very traditional feel to it, in rustic wood, tatami floors, sliding doors, etc. I stayed in the Japanese Twin room and it was by far the biggest room I stayed in on my 5-week trip around Japan. The staff was nice and helpful, though a... More
