Rustic feeling Quiet Private Friendly owner
DIRTY not a great location for public transit The house was basically falling apart.
Very disorganized, overcrowded and no evidence of any kind of maintenance or cleaning in a very long time. Actually pretty disgusting as far as basic hygene was concerned. It seems deceptive to charge money for these facilities while exhibiting this lack of care in providing adequate accommodation. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
Kyoto is fantastic, just walking around the town is worth the trip, it's close enough to the airport and there are many things to see and do, from cultural tourism to shopping. The ryokan is in a really nice area close to a station and really authentic places to eat and drink good things for a good price. The building is traditional and charming with narrow spaces, paper screens and surrounded by bamboos. The owner is the loveliest lady you can think of, she even woke up to say goodbye and give us some packed breakfast around 4:00 am when we left! I really enjoyed it and I recommend it for people that want to feel a bit at home in this faraway land.
I was in Tani house about 15 years ago, and nothing has changed. It is like a trip to Japan from the 50's: facilities are basic, but genuine, the host is very nice and speaks reasonable English, you sleep on the tatami floor with paper doors, very close to one of the best temples in Kyoto
the place looks (and is) old; it is part of its charm, but also could profit from some renovation. Hygienic standards in common facilities could be improved.
old house good location open hours, no curfew. late check-in breakfast nice neighbourhood, lots of 24/7 stores around
a bit dusty/messy
The owner is extremely nice and interested in her guests. The rooms are traditional and comfortable. This house is very traditional and so the doors are paper and sliding and the rooms are close but this is a great experience for a real Japanese house and an amazing immersion opportunity.
We would never stay here again and wouldn't recommend this place to anyone! We booked for 5 nights, after not even 2 hours we were sure to look for another place. It was to much money for a very bad guesthouse. Room: - hairs on pillows - dirty futons - dirty floor - dusty, spiderwebs - noisy Kitchen: - dirty - smoking Bathroom: - dirty - moldy - hairs - little flies everywhere Toilets: - Too small (can not sit) - Dirty - Smelly - Leaking - Loose To expensive, we stayed at good and clean guesthouses for more than half price! This lady is too old to keep this place clean. Don't stay here!
Tani San is a very good and friendly lady, which however could be the only positive thing for the staying.
Tani San may be too old to keep the house clean and in order. The bed sheet is dirty and has possibly been used for quite a few days. It is a wooden house and you hear clearly what the other guests in the house are doing. Well, no matter how good Tani San could be, it is hard to stay there again.
Very friendly helpful staff. Made to feel welcome from the start. Breakfast was supplied and good. Other guests were friendly. Close to transport.
Beds were not comfortable for a westerner.
The woman running the place was lovely, she lent us bikes and offered lots of hospitality.
The place was pretty run down and in need of a thorough cleaning. It was really dusty, dirty and I can imagine very cold and drafty in winter.
It was the worst place that I have ever stayed, the rooms have not been dusted or cleaned in decades, it was very dusty and dirty. The toilets and the showers were very, very dirty. The rooms were very, very noisy, you can even hear the people snoring, so you can forget about having a good sleep as the late guest come very late and the early risers are very early and when the people walk around or use the toilets/showers it is like thunder storm - I am not kidding, it's the worst place - would never, never stay even for free. It is not worth the money. like I said even for free. The kitchen was even worst, full of dirty ash trays around and the sink looks like it has never been cleaned since the house was built. By the way it is not a hotel more a home stay.
Near bus terminal and connect to jr subway line .and.lives as local people do. Next to daitoji temple.... warm welcome by mrs tani..
I like Japanese-styled rooms. Had the chance of experiencing their culture. It was a very good one indeed.
At first, I was abit lost cause I couldn't find the way in. I think sign boards should be placed on the main road, so that traveller's will have no problems in finding the guest house.
Good location to access to attraction sites. Closed to public bus stop & car park.
Terribly dirty and dusty everywhere inside. Away of the city transport.
Good place, convenience, nice reception, have bicycle for rental, nice people, good breakfast. 经营这家旅馆的女士是位和蔼的老人, I shall live here if tour in Kyoto again.
Not tidy and cleanliness for bed and room, toilets are clean but not adequate space, no privacy, bicycle are not so good (mine is a bit leakage of tire).
The old woman that is the owner is very nice and friendly. Breakfast is pretty good and the heater in the room is very powerfull
The house needs a deeply cleaning. Is full of dust. The matresses with not clean sheets. Dirty toilet and shower is or very cold or veeery hot and while you are taking shower, there is a broken window through pass all the wind... The house is 8 km from the center. You have to take a bus that is very slow or a bus and a metro. Then, if you go out at night to take a taxi is 2000 yen.
Complimentary breakfast is very nice. Quiet neighbourhood. Interesting classic Japanese interior. Nice old lady. Different hostel experience
Not the cleanliest of places. Long way from central Kyoto. Uncomfy bikes
Inexpensive price, accessibility to bus lines and nearby temples. Good French patisseries within walking distance. Wifi, laundry, and bike rentals on site.
The upstairs bathing area was filthy. After scouring tile floor, it was barely passable. Lots of clutter in the communal kitchen and areas in disrepair.
Very dirty old house, a lot of garbage and dust everywhere, definitely can't be recommended
The house is very good of price, the own it is also friendly.
Come from tropic country makes me fell so cold at the time I go there.
I really like the house. Authentic Japanease house. The owner is really attentive and friendly. If you want to have a good expenrience with a fair price. I recommand it for you. Dont expect much about the toilet and bath.
Toilet and bath
dirty dirty dirty clairaudient dirty
The lady who took care of the guest house was nice and knows how to speak English. There was no curfew.
The cleaning was terrible, there was stains on the sheets and dust everyhere, we had a giant cockroach in the room the second night we stayed there. We didn't dare go near the showers but used a public bath instead and in the end we decided not to stay the last night but change hotels for a cleaner one.
Miss Tani do her best to understand foreign people and to help them. Good wifi.
Fortunately I've got my sleeping bag, bed linen are quite old and dirty. The bathroom is good if you're a dwarf.
