We stayed at Gojo Guest House Annexe for three nights, and we had a wonderful time. As other reviewers have mentioned, the staff were very kind, friendly and helpful. We arrived late at night, and even though we had been unable to contact the guest house to tell them we were running later than planned (our mobile phone credit ran... More

The staff here are very possibly the nicest staff I have ever had the pleasure of staying with. They advised us on our itinerary, they gave us weather / blossom forecasts for where we were going, they chatted with us using exceptional English and generally made us feel so welcome that by the end of our week-long stay we were...

We stayed 3 nights at this guest house. The location is very convenient, a short bus ride from Kyoto station and walking distance to Gion area. The room for two was lovely, Japanese style. The kitchen was really clean and practical. There is also a small lounge with TV where you can eat and free wifi. The only 2 downs... More

I stayed at this guest house for 3 nights in the room for 3 in Japanese style. The place is the old Japan house located in the heart of Kyoto. Transport to this place is so easy and not so far from Kyoto station. I stayed during January and the weather is extremely cold and they provided us a heater.... More

We stayed at Gojo guesthouse Annex for 5 nights. Location: Gojo guesthouse annex is located along a sloping sidestreet on the edge of the Kyoto Gion area. It's located within walking distance (cross the road and continue straight on) from Kyumizo-dera temple and a slightly longer walk (15 minutes) into the central area. Guesthouse: The Gojo guesthouse Annex is a... More

This is an interesting little place, with cute rooms and very friendly staff. We stayed in a traditional Japanese room, with no bathroom, a couple of futons for beds and a low table. Not the most comfortable arrangement but it's worth a try if only for a night. It feels like you are transported in time. The showers and the... More

I've been traveling for a year, staying at everything from super fancy places to places where you share a bathroom with the entire hotel, which this place is, but for what it is I have zero complaints. Clean, comfy, adorable rooms with great little touches (desks, built ins, bamboo lamps). It is VERY bare bones however - there are no... More

We totally recommend this hotel IF you want to stay at a traditional style ryokan. It's not expensive, service is great and rooms are clean and cozy. Spent about three days with my wife in Oct2010 and we loved it. They even have a kitchen but we did not use it. Showers are downstairs and are ok. Important warning: steep... More

We loved staying at Gojo. It is in the middle of a quaint Kyoto neighborhood, in an old-style Japanese modeled home that has been updated. The 3-person room was very spacious according to Japanese standards. The air conditioner worked awesome and there was a good amount of "closet" space. The whole place was very clean; the only issue was that... More

Please keep in mind that we didn't stay in during the day, and mostly explored Kyoto. Admittedly, this place is a little hard to find at first, tucked away as it is on a sloping road in the middle of Kyoto. Fortunately, a kind resident in the neighbouring buildings helped us find our way. Unfortunately, the owner/personwhorunstheplace did not answer... More
