Good for a once-in-a-lifetime experience
This was not my best choice! It is not suitable for a family, especially with young children. The place is too old, the walls are, literally, paper-thin, there is no TV and the toilet and shower room are both in the corridor on a shared basis. Hotels.com says "Children (6 years old and younger) not allowed" I did not see this when reserving. The owner knew our son was 6, but did not write to tell us of this rule. The room was not cheap for what is, or isn't, on offer, yet we were still asked to pay 100yen per person for use of a small towel. The torch for visiting the toilet during the night shone for 5 minutes before the battery gave out. The wi-fi did not connect either due to the weakness of the signal. The description on Hotels.com says that a "Cash deposit required" at check in. This is very misleading. This guesthouse does not accept credit cards and you must pay the whole amount in cash before checking in. There is no bath and there is no breakfast! Why did we stay there? My mistake. I looked at the photos and fell for them. It is a beautiful building, very representative of its era and is good for a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

美麗、寧靜的客房。地點方便。
我們入住的房間擁有自己的小型日式花園,我們很喜歡這個氛圍。住在日式客房真的是一個獨特的體驗。當然,這代表較小的空間,需要在日式床墊上睡覺(但底下會墊泡綿膠墊,就算你像我一樣不喜歡硬床都不是個問題),不太好的隔音,以及睡房外才有共用浴室。可是,如果你能接受一些不同之處,這可以是一個令人難忘且愉快的住宿經驗。二條城(與及地鐵站)和旅館非常近,附近還有幾個藝術展覽館。旅館轉角處有一間好吃又不貴的麵/咖喱餐廳,以及幾間便利店。

Original review:
"Beautiful, tranquil room in a convenient location"
We stayed in a room with its own miniature Japanese garden and loved the vibe. Really unique experience staying in a Japanese style room. Of course, that means more narrow spaces, sleeping on shikibuton (but there are foam pads provided for layering under and this wasn't a problem even for someone as sensitive to hard beds as me), limited sound isolation, and shared bathroom outside of the sleeping room. However, if you're okay with something a bit different, this can be a memorable and pleasant stay. Nijo castle (and subway station) is two blocks away and several art exhibition places are nearby. There's a decent and affordable noodle / curry eatery on the corner and several convenience stores.
