I wasn’t comfortable with being on the first floor. They Moved us the next day when a room was available. They went above and beyond to accommodate all our needs . They have a laundry room which was great. No microwave in the room but there was one on the first floor we could use. The location was perfect I would highly recommend this place

A taste of Japan with western comfort
The property is perfectly located in the heart of Gion. It is close to most of the interesting sites and to public transportation. The room is spacious, elegant and has all the modern comfort. This is not a hotel so there is limited service, however they were always helpful and efficient.

Great Kyoto find!
The hotel was exactly what we were looking for. We booked three rooms, all with twin beds for a group of 5 friends. The rooms were very nice, clean and with plenty of space. We felt like the hotel was a great find and highly recommend it to others traveling to Kyoto!

Hotel review
This was a quaint, cosy hotel located about 5 mins walk from Gion Shijo station, 7-eleven, 2 mins from Kenninji Temple, and 10 mins from the Pagoda Shrine and Fresco, a food market with fruit etc. It is a little snug but fine for me and my 7 year old. There is a medical clinic across the road, however children are only seen by Pediatricians, so can’t help with kids. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We arrived at 12:30pm and check-in is 4pm, but they let us check-in right away at no extra charge. The lady that assisted us could speak good English. There were many great sushi and udon restaurants around us. I would recommend this and would stay there again. There are many taxis In the area to wave down.

Nice staff
My husband and I stayed here for our 5 day stay in Kyoto/Nara. The front desk staff was nice and spoke enough English to get by. They even offered an extra umbrella to us when it was raining. There is an actual key to get to the elevator and room, but warned not to lose it as it will cost money to replace. The room was a decent size (2 twin beds), but the bathroom was small and unfortunately smelt like urine that wasn’t ours. There was no natural light in the room, as the window was covered by the bamboo silhouette wall. They did provide all the bathroom amenities and even free water bottles each day. The front desk gladly kept our luggage after checkout so we could get breakfast. The hotel is 3-4 minutes from the Keihan line & walking distance to Gion and Pontocho.
