We spent three nights in ikoi-no-ie. We pick the place despite some bad reviews as it was conveniently located and we were arriving in kyoto late (12am). The rooms were small but cosy. It might be because we are asians so the room was just right for us. We took the room with an attached bathroom. The bathroom was small but sufficient.
Room was generally clean till you unfold the matress. We found Lots of hair on the sheets. NO stains but lots of hair. It as if no one had bothered to wash it. Room / walls were too thin. Can be woken up by people walking to and fro the bathing area in the early mornings and late night. I do not recommend staying here. It was my first time in japan but i have stayed in three other minshuku on this trip. Ikoi-no-ie was indeed quite dirty. Find a minshuku furthur on the outskirts as the bus routes are rather convenient.
