I was just in Kyoto and Osaka. I stayed in this guest house, a budget ryokan and a business hotel. I also went to a minshuku. Of all of these lodgings, this place really felt the most Japanese. True, the floors creak, there is one shower, etc. but I appreciated the experience despite these small inconveniences. People were considerate and friendly. The women at the front desk spoke great English and were very helpful as well.
I would probably not normally rate this place five stars since five stars is used reserved for the absolute best, but for authenticity, location and price, I gave it five stars. (P.S. It's not officially a ryokan, as others have called it.)More
