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
