    Very good house staffs ;) A 130-year-old traditional Japanese house with good refurbishment not far from the subway and Family Mart. It would be nice if there is an isolated toilet for each room.

    個人でやられているようなので、チェックイン前に必ず宿の方に直接、チェックインの日時を伝えておいた方がスムーズだと思います。テレビがないのでお部屋での楽しめる物を何か用意されるといいと思います。 築100年以上の町屋に泊まれる機会などなかなかないですし、宿の方がとにかく親切な良い方です。掃除も行き届いていて清潔感があり、かなりおすすめです。

    Is a whole unique and charming experience

    Great attention! The place is really old traditional kyoto style. For those who looks forward to an special stay, this would be a wonderful experience. Very next to Šanjo market and the train station. Also posible to rent a bike provided by the hosts.

  • 2.0.Poor

    moldy and small

    the room was way too small for four people. In bad condition. We left after one night, the owners were not open for any discussion or to give a refund. There are a lot of better places in Kyoto.

    一直很想嘗試傳統日本住宿,這家住宿價錢相宜合理,店主是說英文的,溝通容易,親切友善,給到的資料也很詳細充足。這裡跟Family Mart很近,晚上買東西回來很方便。跟JR二條城站和京阪鐵路二條城前站都很近。這裡比起其他酒店更能體會傳統日式居住環境,雖然設施比較簡樸,但可以讓城市人暫時脫離繁忙的生活,還可以學到日式床墊的整理方法。早上去洗手間還可以看到貓咪,覺得好開心~ 值得推薦~
