    Property condition

    5/5 Excellent

    Homely and pleasant in Kyoto

    With few rooms and a common kitchen (which is very well organized) it's easy to get in contact with other travellers. The rooms are traditional and smells cozy of fresh tatami mats. The guesthouse is located in a nice area with low houses. 20 minutes to walk from the train station.

    Pros: I felt very at home at the guesthouse.

    Location: Nearby you'll find the netsuke museum.

    Stayed 5 nights in Mar 2018

    Ohk...but won't stay gain.

    well the hotel has notice boards everywhere...don't do this ...don't do that. Feels like in school. Also the owner was kinda annoying. Coffee and breakfast is just slice of bread with Jam. which too was over only half of our party could do the breakfast. World cafe which claims to give you 50% off to Yahata guests is also not nearby...quite a walk. You can't do that with your luggage. Check in is only from 4 to 9 pm not anytime after 4 pm which was a bummer since we had to leave our dinner half way to rush for checkin because owner wasn't ready to adjust.

    4/5 Good
