Before I go to kyoto I already book this guesthouse. My plan will stay 2 night there. When I book for the first day the owner say I can book for private room with 3000 yen. And for second day I cannot continue to book private room so the owner say I can book a couple room with 2700 yen....

Having spent most of the night out drinking SAKE and Lemon Chu-Hi, I wasn't feeling on top of the world when I was woken early for cleaning to take place. I guess if it wasn't for that I wouldn't have seen as much as I did. Never the less, at UNO house it is traditional Japanese accommodation and I respect...

I have stayed at Uno House a few times. I was living in Kyoto but in the countryside. Uno House was a great place to sleep after going out drinking in the city. It is an easy walk to Kiyamachi Street and there is no curfew. I usually got back there at 4 or 5am. I slept heavily for 5...

This hostel/house is not going to win any beauty awards but it was clean and quiet enough for one night. The complaints I've seen here are fair - I do not disagree with any of them (except maybe the claims that it is not clean) - but I think some expectations were set way too high. Kyoto is a VERY...

Fortunatelly my friend and I only stayed here one night, so it was fine though I highly do not recommand it for more. First thing when we arrived the stairs wre very straight very dangerous to climb with heavy suitcase, not to say almost impossible. Then one thing thqt was pretty disturbing were those papers hanging out on the walls...

Uno House is a disheveled, scruffy old house. Which I think would probably be a deathtrap in a fire. But when I did visit there I met other friendly scruffy freewheeling easy going backpackers, and I enjoyed myself. If you fit this description you will be satisfied enough. Also there is effectively no curfew because the side door is always...

I make it simple: We in the morning, wanting to stay 3 nights. After we saw our private room, me and my friend where shocked. Nevertheless, we tried to make our best at first.

I'll make it simple; stay here and have a terrible holiday where you'll experience everything that is NOT Japan. The owners are truly obnoxious, and that is being generous. The place is decrepit and hazardous to the health. It is not cheap, in fact having to pay to stay here is a joke, I wouldn't stay here if they offered...

We had a Japanese friend make the reservation for us. The owner told him that we would get a private "traditional tatami" room with a bathroom and a/c. It was very cheap compared to what we had seen and we were really excited to be there. As we arrived I immediately got a bad feeling about the place : It...

This place is to be avoided. It's disgusting appearance shows there is little interest diplayed by the owner to maintain it. The hostel is a rabbit warren of rooms with no windows and no air circulation. A hazard to health! It is also a fire hazard with the narrow, and difficult to navigate corridors. 2 showers only, for up to...

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
