NUMBER OF ROOMS
The place is located in a quiet area, it's super convenient because it's close to Kyoto station and it's the place I come to, every time I go back to Kyoto. The owner is super nice and keeps the place clean and tidy, he will help you if you have questions and make sure you are doing great. The beds are comfortable and there is a shared living room, very nice!
We stayed in a private room and it was clean, comfortable and homely. Tanaka-san is soft-spoken but pleasant and helpful. He allowed us to store our luggage in the foyer even after we checked out, allowing us to go and view the sights of Kyoto on our last day. This guesthouse is great for people who wish to experience sleeping in the traditional Japanese way on a futon in a tatami room, but do not wish to spend a lot of money. A convenience store, Porta underground mall and Kyoto station are extremely close by, making this an ideal stay for travellers who do not want to stray too far from Kyoto station. If you have mobility issues, however, it may be best to find alternate accommodation as the property does not have a lift and there is a fairly large step between the foyer and the genkan. The stairs are also quite steep so it's important to be careful, especially when heading down to the bathroom at night.…
Quaint and cozy guesthouse with an incredibly convenient location right next door to Kyoto JR Station. If you're coming from the Shinkansen exit be sure to take Exit 2 towards Kyoto Tower (Kyoto station can be disorienting) Also, a couple of suggestions for improvement: 1) guesthouse should specify right out that there is an additional accommodation charge on top of the actual reservation (I reserved a single room for $65CAD) and they charged an added ¥100 also if you dont have a towel it's an additional ¥100). 2) Room was clean and cozy but they really need to change the futon because it was well used and fattened to the thickness of a leaf (not very comfortable). But apart from that, highly recommend esp for 1 night stay
A very neat and aesthetically pleasing place to stay. The host was lovely and warm. The guest house is located very close to Kyoto Station - walking distance. Makes it easy to travel about town. Groceries, lots of food places and cafes around.
At first when I arrived I was concerned because it looked closed so I sent an email and the staff was very reactive and told me to come cause it was opened. The hostel is literally straight from Kyoto station you can't be closer and easier to find its the perfect location. It's a quiet place with a very authentic feeling, nice decoration, very clean and the staff is here to help. I would definitely recommend this place and go back there if I had to come back to Kyoto!
