    4/5 Good

    Great central location to many temples and walking lanes of Gion. Quiet location.

    Super friendly

    When we arrived we were greeted by the super friendly owners who spoke enough english that there were no problems. They walked us through everything and showed us out rooms. We had some great conversations with the owners and they were more like friends than staff. The rooms were no particularly large but were big enough for two people. The Duvets were amazing and super fluffy and warm, you will be sleeping on a traditional futon here but not to worry as they are comfortable. The included breakfast consisted of some toast with spreads, tea/coffee and a banana. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean and kept to a high standard. There was also washing machine that you could pay to use which we definitely did. The location is within walking distance of a train station, temples and most of the main sites of Kyoto as far as we were concerned although we were fit. The guesthouse it down a narrow alley way an near a alley intersection. In conclusion, the clean comfy beds and the super friendly staff made this one of the most memorable stays in Japan that we had.

    Stingy breakfast and a terrible on-site manager

    Hotel is in a convenient location with small but adequate rooms. The free breakfast is a joke - each person is allowed to have 2 slices of white break with artificial butter / peanut butter + 1 banana. However, the worst is the guy who sleeps behind the front desk and manages the hotel. He seemed to take his job as telling us what was prohibited - "No, you cannot eat a banana now, breakfast only". One evening, he hosted a noisy dinner party for his friends in the hotel's tiny lobby/kitchen/dinning area, which means no guest could use the only common area that evening and everyone had to parade in front of some drinking/shouting men to use the showers. We waited till 10 PM to ask them to keep the noise down, only to be told by the guy that the curfew (lights out, noise down) was 11 PM!
