5/5 Excellent

A beautiful traditional house located in a lovely neighbourhood. It is very close to Sanjo-dori, Nijo-jo castle & Shibori museum. I found it very easy to get to Nishiki market as well as Nishijin textile centre from here. Even getting to Arashiyama was easy (35min approx). The house itself is charming. I got to stay in a ground floor room at the back of the house, which looked exactly as in the photos. It also had a small window on a floor level (which was interesting) looking into the inside garden. I found it very comfortable to sleep in futon style bed, which you have to make everyday yourself - the staff can show you on the first day if you like. The communal area is spotless as there is always a member of staff during the day to look after the house.

I really loved this experience of staying in a traditional house. I especially loved the pillow, it moulded to my body and was very comfortable. It was lovely and the staff were wonderful. I will stay again should I come to kyoto in the future

Very good house staffs ;) A 130-year-old traditional Japanese house with good refurbishment not far from the subway and Family Mart. It would be nice if there is an isolated toilet for each room.

Nice stay, Good Access to Subway
It was a nice stay, with a traditional bed set up on the floor. We were happy it was so close to the subway, and was also very close to Nijo castle. I wouldn't recommend the hotel if you have young children that would have a hard time being quiet because it is easy to hear guests in other room through the paper doors. The beds were a bit hard, and that was my only real complaint.
