I liked my stay at Yamazaki. We were in the Annexe, without any other travellers, so it definitely was quiet. If it were busier, I am not sure how quiet it could have been as the walls were literally paper thin. I know that because our lock jammed and the owner broke into the room by smashing through a paper on the door.
The room was large and comfortable with a kettle and pot for tea. There was access to the internet with a printer at the entrance way.
Our only gripe was that it was a bit off the beaten path. There is a JR bus that travels closeby but the last one leaves Kyoto station at 9pm. Otherwise it is a 30-40mins walk from the closest JR subway station. It was a nice quiet residential area, though, and the prices were cheaper to reflect this.
