Enough room and storage. Comfortable stay.
Location was just a bit too far from the station and the city is very spread out meaning you do need the station a lot!
Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable, roomy and easy going.
Room size is bigger than average hotel room in japan, wifi connection is fast, near to the bus station, room and bathroom are clean
could have provide kitchen utensils and speakers for the computer, computer is lagging
First, The house's service and cleanliness is very good. it was much more than my expectation. Second, It was very cozy and silence. so you can take a rest in confy. Final, Every facility is very good condition. you can see even a small TV in the shower room. You won't have any house better than here at the same price. I strongly recommend here. You would be very satisfaction. I hope i will come back here again!
The location is not bad. but it's still not good enough.
we liked the room and the staff (very helpful and happy).
Very spacious and clean room, it kinda felt like coming home after a busy day of exploring kyoto and surrounding places.
It's about a half hour walk from the center and 20 minutes from the station. Which, for us, was not a big deal.
The apartment is very spacious, comfortable, clean and newly furnished. Bathroom has a small TV installed, can be watched while enjoying the ofuro. Excellent choice!
Kyoto station is a little far. Maybe taking a bus is a good option. The closest subway is also a bit far to go walking.
Kind Staff , exellent wifi , cozy
quite far from the station. you could be hard to find if you don't use the map with wifi,and I thought they equip the cooking ware but only have a small kettle... you should bring your home if u wanna cook...!!!!
I liked the facilities of the room a lot. The room is tiny but with everything you might need. Staff is very friendly, patient and helpful.
The room price and the heated toilet seat and heated shower room.
Quite a distance from the train station actually, but acceptable for this price. Disappointed there is no safe for our valuables. It is a walk up apartment therefore unfriendly for elderly or disabled. The path from the main door to the room and too the bathroom is too narrow for a wheelchair too.
It was a quite good experience there. We arrived after 12 p.m. because the plane was late. But the staff waited for us and helped us to check in. Though there was no room clean everyday, but room was quite clean and good appliance. Thank you so much for everything, we had spent really good time.
It is about 20 min walk from Kyoto station.
The lady who runs this place is extremely friendly and helpful. We had a great experience there. The room was clean, simple and very comfortable.
room is clean and comfortable, highly recommanded!
Toilet too small, location poor
1.The directions to the place were on point. They provided a map and written directions so we found it without too much hassle. It's a little bit far from Kyoto station if you walk, especially with suitcases and a pregnant belly. However, you can easily take the bus which stops across from this guesthouse. 2. We arrived after the staff's on duty time, so they left us with all the information we needed to get into the hostel and into our room. We were very thankful for that. 3. Check-out was a breeze as well.
1. A guesthouse usually has a central area for guests to mingle with one another. This place is just one-rooms with no connection to other guests. I didn't know who was staying on the same floor as myself. This guesthouse had a cold feeling to it. They should call it an apt building because there was no sign of a guest house here. Nothing exciting ever happened and I rarely saw the staff members. 2. The toilet room was soooo small that I could barely close the door to use it. NOT convenient especially as a pregnant woman. 3. NO KITCHEN PLATES OR ANYTHING! We had a tea kettle. At least they could have provided chopsticks or plastic spoons for guests. That was highly inconvenient for us. 4. The beds were ok but a little hard. The pillows were a bit too soft and low for me. 5. The room was extra dry so my husband and had I trouble sleeping and woke up ever so often to drink water to re-hydrate our mouths and skin. We had to lay out damp towels around the room to put some moisture back into the air. Again, an inconvenience for a pregnant woman.
Excellent landlady who could not have been more helpful and kind, facilities and location were perfect
We like the fact that the guesthouse was close to everything including bus stops going to all the tourist spots. We also liked that it has a bakery and a small traditional restaurant beside it so we can go and have fresh bread during breakfast and dinner on the restaurant beside after a long day. We like that there is a bathtub with a tv and a fridge as well as a computer and table all in! Highly recommended!
very nice room and facilities. very clean and neat.
a bit far from main attractions in kyoto and a bit of a walk. no washing machine and dryer, which would have made it perfect. no elevator as well.
The floor is too cold
modern bathroom and kitchenette friendly staff who helped store our luggage and let us checked in earlier wifi is very good
There is no reception. Everything worked well with the lockers for the key, but a minimum of human contacts (for city hints, for example) would have been useful. From the station better to take the bus: a bit more than walking distance.
no breakfast option
Nice staff easy check in and out. good communication before arrival.
Long walk from station with kids. beds hard.
