I stayed here after reading excellent reviews and I wasn't disappointed. I have never stayed in a traditional guest house before so I wasn't sure what to expect. Guest Inn Chita couldn't have been better. Only a 10 minute walk from Kyoto JR train station. As soon as the owner Kahori introduced herself I felt at home. Kahori speaks excellent English and went out of her way to make us feel welcome. The rooms are very clean and a great size with air-con and TV. I was a little worried about sleeping on the floor but I slept like a log. There are adequate toilets for the number of rooms and 2 showers. We never once had to wait for the shower. There is also a kitchen and we cooked most nights. There is a large Yodabashi store across from the train station which has a supermarket in the basement. Free internet access and for those of you that don't have a laptop with them there is a computer available to use also. There is a washing/drying machine for 200yen. Higashi Honganji Temple is across the road from the Guest House. We met so many interesting people from all over the world and often sat at night chatting to them in the lounge area. I honestly didn't want to leave here and will definitely be stopping here again on my next visit to Kyoto and I will be staying in touch with Kahori and her family.
