The property is set less than 1 km from Eikan-do Zenrin-ji Temple, a 19-minute walk from Heian Shrine and 2.2 km from Shoren-in Temple. Free WiFi is available and private parking can be arranged at an extra charge.

The units in the guest house are equipped with a kettle. Everything is great at RokuRoku, from the wonderful welcome from the owner to the free bicycles and the card-key entry rooms/dorms. RokuRoku is close to bus stops that can get you to Kyoto Station, Arashiyama, Kinkaku-ji, Kitano Tenmangu and more places on just one bus. The property is spotlessly clean and in a great location - very near Philosopher's Path and walking distance to Ginkaku-ji and Nanzen-ji. It's about a 30 minute walk to Gion. My third (and best) stay here.
