We stayed at the Guest house and I absolutely adored it. Aside from the central location we were given the friendliest welcome and the place was impeccably clean and had all we wanted. We stayed in a traditional room with tatami mats and futons. In...More

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.

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 goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
