This place is great in the middle of Gion. It is within walking distance to the many attractions in Gion including several temples and the night walking tour starting location. It is also very near the place where Geiko and Maiko stay and work so we could spend our nights watching out for them. You can definitely spot several Geiko and Maiko while walking around in the evenings.
There's a starbucks downstairs and a Lawson supermart around the corner so it is really convenient for us to get food and water. The room is very small - don't expect much! We booked the twin room and got a super single bed rather than a queen size bed. It is really small and squeezy. They gave us very thin and hard pillows and it was rather uncomfortable. The toilet in our room is also old and stained but at least it was clean.
Ask for a room near the elevator as the corridors can get rather long - we had a room at the very end of the corridor and it's a long winding walk!
Overall, it's great for its location but don't expect much in terms of space or comfort.
