Kyoto Machiya SHOUAN, Kyoto
Sweet lovely historical building
Good place. It is very old and made in traditional ways, so they're getting used to booking in a cash based world. But super friendly and close to a supermarket for food. If you hate street noise bring ear plugs and you'll be fine. These are tatami rooms with paper doors. The wifi was the best. Most of Japan makes you sign in, these guys have it like you would at home. Everyone was super sweet there and for the price you really can't beat it in kyoto which was surprisingly expensive to book last minute.

Nice Japanese experience
Hotel itself was nice. We arrived around 9pm and the owner was just about to lock the door. Thankfully we got there in time. We stayed upstairs and were taught how to make beds. Good experience but could be tiring if it's towards the end of a long day. Had to go downstairs for shower and toilet. but the deco is nice. Close to nijo castle, but otherwise far from everything else, but the bus line can take us to places. Nice to live far away from commercial district, but hope the location is more convenient.

Little Kyoto gem
This place was fantastic. The room was very comfortable and the staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. They even gave us tips on what to see and how to get there.
