Spent 3 days in March 2012 there. It was a nice reception by the family and the room was excellent. there was a small bathroom but it was too cold so I decided to use the tradition japanese bath installation they have and it was just perfect after a day of intense walking.
There is a green tea set in the room and always hot water in the thermos. The breakfast (traditional japanese style) was wonderful, cooked by the lovely owner.
Really nice place, close to the train station and walking distance form the main attractions.
I would stay there again next time I'm in Kyoto.
