A small touch of old Japan
Gagakuan is not a hotel, it's the equivalent of a US townhouse, built about 100 years ago. It's a 2 story unit with a full kitchen downstairs and beds upstairs. It was very clean and easy to walk to Nijo Castle and other. Kyoto sights. We really enjoyed it because it was so different from the hotels we stay in when we travel. If you must have a TV and maid service look elsewhere (there is free wifi and a laptop in the home), but this is the perfect place to stay when visiting a city like Kyoto.

Wonderful!
We (husband, mother-in-law and myself) loved our stay at Gagakuan!The proprietor met us as we exited from our cab and extend an extraordinary quality of hospitality during our stay. This accommodation was perfect for several people - one downstairs room, Japanese style with tatami mats/futon and attached toilet. The property has the charm of an old Japanese style townhouse with the sensibility and style, in the kitchen, of a modern/Italian influenced larder -there was olive oil to cook with and very stylish plates/cups and flatware/utensils. We highly enjoyed shopping for food at the Nishiki market and eating "in" for breakfast and dinner, with the mid-day meal out at a local restaurant. We had a quiet, peaceful and entirely delightful stay at this townhouse. I/we highly recommend this accommodation!

Great stay.
Great stay. The lady in charge was very nice. The place is not easy to find for first-timer but she kindly picked us up at the train exit. Also gave many advices on traveling. Place is clean and well-equipped.

Experience Kyoto City
It was a fantastic experience staying in Gagakuan. We were welcomed by Ms Mako and she has given very valuable travel advice according weather and transportation. The house has a very relaxing environment, no TV, but provided with relaxing music CD. I had a very relaxing night like spending time in a cafe. The house also provided one bicycle, it is great way to experience the city as well.
