Exceptional 10.0
It’s exactly what you expect - a minimalist, simple room. Location is great, being close to lots of touristy stuff while feeling like you’re in amoungst the locals. Supermarket next door was great, and some yummy spots to eat at nearby. About 10 minutes walk to Gion area, 15 to Kiyomizu-dera
