Warm hospitality

We were a group of 3: a couple in our 80s travelling with our daughter .It had a very friendly atmosphere and was an enjoyable stay and we would advise our friends to stay there but a bit far from the main bus routes for oldies like us!

Comfy hotel close to Nijojo castle

This hotel was a breathe of fresh air whilst travelling in Japan. The rooms were spacious and the beds were really comfortable. They also serve a light continental breakfast which was a welcome change! The staff were friendly and nothing is too much trouble. There’s even a washing machine to wash your clothes. Hotel is one bus from Kyoto station and it’s easy to get around the city. We will definitely stay again if we are in Kyoto

Great little guesthouse

A great little guesthouse - small and friendly. In a great location - just a couple of minutes from bus stop and close to ninjijo castle . Basic breakfast of pastries, yoghurt and fruit. Use of fridge and freezer very useful - you could also use the kitchen to cook meals but we didn’t do this.
