We stayed at the Yoshimizu Inn for 5 nights in November, we booked the last available room which was a western room (the only one, I think). We loved the location of the Inn, high up in the park, surrounded by bamboo woods. Our room had windows along two walls and it really felt like sleeping in a tree house. Despite its tranquility it is only a 5-10min walk to the Gion, and the walk is lovely, through temple precincts where there was plenty to see and some surprisingly good street food that helped for the journeys back up hill. Our room was clean and comfortable, we had a heater that we needed as November is cold and the windows are only single glazed, each day we also returned to a welcome flask of hot green tea. Breakfasts in the communal dining room were basic but very tasty and set us up for the day. Everyone we spoke to was very friendly and helpful in providing maps, directions and recommendations for restaurants. After a hard day sight-seeing it was wonderful to return to one of the two japanese baths (onsen) and soak away the aches. I would definitely recommend.
