    Very clean. Comfy beddings and just enough space to rest. Definitely good value for what you paid for. Near Gion site and good hub for travelling to most tourist sites. Owner is accomodating but have difficulty in conversing in English. Nice stay and great value.

    City Center
    No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
    blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
    shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
    bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
    peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
