Highly recommended.
Guest house is close to bus station and walking distance to Nijo Castle. Easy to get directions from locals. Gueandelina at the reception was extremely helpful. Very clean facility. Decent room size. Washing machine in suite. The washroom turns into a dryer room. Easy to do laundry and dry clothes. Made a suggestion to provide iron and ironing board as well as a make up mirror in the bedroom. Located in a new residential area. Quiet at night. Close to local market for fruits and vegetables. Highly recommended.

Great room near Nijo
This little guest house was tucked away near Nijo castle (15 minute walk away). Pros were the staff were great, size of the room was great, room had a washing machine, close to buses, subway. Cons were the front desk closes at 5pm but there is a phone to use if an emergency comes up, little challenging to find the location as streets aren’t marked well and it’s on a small back street, most things in Kyoto you will need to take a bus or subway to, couple things are closer but not as walkable as I would’ve liked given our short three day stay.

Perfect budget place
We stayed in the superior twin studio - family of four (two elementary school aged children). It had two big beds, desk, kitchenette and bathroom. Everything was newer and clean. I liked having a washer and then there is a clothes drying option in the bathroom. It took several hours for clothes to dry but if you just set it before you go to bed, it's dry by morning. If you want daily cleaning and a front desk this isn't for you. It's low budget but totally worth every penny for the amenities. Tip: being your own powdered detergent. Also if you need plates and utensils those cost extra to rent. We didn't need those since we ate out. We only used the fridge for bottled water. When you exit the subway use exit 6. From there it's a right turn on the street that has Starbucks. Walk about 5-6 blocks, turn left on the street. The place is about 3-4 buildings on the left. Make sure to look for the building that's in the picture. Google maps doesn't take you to the noted address so go by the exterior photos.

Fair 4.0
Very disappointing
This can't really be described as a hotel, more of a hostel. The rooms are not cleaned during your stay. Both our duvets had crusty new stains on the covers so clearly hadn't been changed or washed between guests. As recpeption shuts at 7.30 we couldn't tell anyone about this and get them changed. Also note that check in times on here aren't correct it's 25.30-19.30

Great apartment, location OK, very cost efficient
The mini apartment has all you need for a few days stay in Kyoto. Small kitchen, shower and bathtub with tv, washing machine and even a drying mechanism in the shower. Location is 15 mins walk from Main Street and 3 mins walk to a bus for other locations and train station. The only thing we felt missing is some kitchen amenities that you had to rent for 500 yen which is not much.

Nice and plesent
Nice guesthouse, polite staff, studio room with kitchenette. Room was plesent and included air conditioning. Room and bed not made up each day, but this was not expected. Area has supermarkets and Starbucks within 5 min walk. There is a Italian restaurant next door open early till late. Would have been nice to include tea and a coffee in the room.

Clean big rooms
Big clean room and a very nice bathroom. There was a washing machine in the room which was super convenient. The reception service was nice and efficient. We really enjoyed our stay here and would stay again next time in Kyoto.

We loved Sanjo Ogawa.
Great little guesthouse. The triple room is two double beds in a suite with a small private bedroom holding a third bed. Highly recommended for families. The neighborhood is great, there is a killer market a few blocks away, and the service is very good. Also the price is unbeatable.

Very nice guesthouse. We had a spacious room with stove, mini fridge and washing machine. It even had a computer in case you needed to download pictures from your camera. Everything looked brand new. Really nice staff. Close to Subway stations and bus stops.
