You cannot go in or out after 10:30pm. If you go out and come back later than that you have to wait until morning. They didn't mention that in the description! Also downtown is half an hour away so that takes a while. You cannot use the bathroom before the evening tome (6:30pm). Only one toilet (NOT western style) for the entire building, man and women. Loud metal doors because it's an old building. Bad sound isolation. Unhelpful staff. Strange smell. TV started playing in the middle of the night (probably the remotes work between rooms) Some guy entering women's shower while my girlfriend was there... Yeahhhh

Maybe the other Japanese reviewers here had different expectations or perhaps it has changed dramatically since my visit in 2008, but I had a wonderful experience here. Be prepared to speak Japanese though, as the woman owner and her mother who work together can really only speak Japanese. However, this place is excellent. Comfortable western rooms, great breakfast, great service, and this is in an excellent location. Right on Kitashirakawa there is the best ramen I've ever eaten, and this is within walking distance to Ginkakuji and the "Philosopher's Path" as it's called in English., which is a series of temples and shrines within walking distance from each other. Absolutely one of the most beautiful spots of the city. Everything in the city is just a subway or bus ride away.
