    4/5 Good

    Great location for my needs. The place is almost like self serve place. No 24/7 desk and you use own key pads to get in and out. They take cash only.

    5/5 Excellent

    Cute room, I loved the soft ambience from the paper lantern lighting in the room. The bathroom was nice, especially the spacious bathtub. The view is of the alley so it is fairly quiet. It's located above a cafe (you have to take stairs to get up to your room), so there is some soft jazz music you can here in the evening, but they close at 10 or 11, i believe so it wasn't bothersome when sleeping. I didn't get a chance to eat at the cafe, but you get a discount there if you are staying in one of their 5 rooms. For check in, I just talked to the staff while the cafe was open and they checked me in, the description says there's no reception, but they do have a desk although it might be un-manned sometimes. They speak limited english, but i got by just fine. The staff doesn't enter your room at all, so if you're used to room keeping, you have to explicitly asks for that and it costs extra. There's also a laundry machine available that you need to ask to use. Besides the amenities, this place is located within walking distance to Nishiki Market which is a great place to grab some street food, it's also walking distance to the train and the teramachi shopping arcade which i recommend you visit and pick yourself up some woodblock paintings and a yukata or kimono for gifts. One other thing, there is a 7/11 at the end of the block so it's easy to grab replenish your cash at the atm or just grab some last minute snacks.

    Good location, friendly staff, laundry facilities. A gentle introduction to more traditional Japanese style accommodations. They don’t enter your room during your stay, consequences are, if you want a towel change you have to ask... if you want your room cleaned (because you messed it up) you have to ask and have to pay extra. If you generate a lot of garbage you have to take care of it. Rooms are on top of a functioning cafe, so there is low level background music ... I think until 22:00hrs, it was NOT disturbing. Cafe food is just OK but lots of options immediately around that location. I spent 8 nights, it was easy to adjust to. Highly recommended

    Good room and great food in the cafe

    The room was lovely only marred by the cafe downstairs having music on a 30 minute loop. The cafe food was very good.

    Highly recommend!

    Great accommodation. Bed was pretty hard, but I think that is pretty normal in Japan. They don’t clean your room unless you ask, and they charge a small fee. Room was near spotless when we first got there so we never needed it cleaned. Awesome location too!
