Very Good 8.2 From 29 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Extremely helpful staff who called up Shinkansen services to locate a lost bag. They went out of their way to find it and where incredibly friendly throughout the stay! Traditional style house which adds to the feel of staying in Kyoto, good central location within easy walking distance from buses and subway networks to all the various temples you might want to see. Very simple! It seemed like they’d been doing it well for a long time :)

Very Good 8.0
A bit run down in places, and the double room was quite cramped with an old bed, but apart from that our stay was okay. Staff were helpful and the building was beautiful and well positioned to Nijo Castle, bus routes and Kyoto Station (by bus/taxi).
