Charming, spacious, comfortable, attractive accommodation. Off the beaten path so taxis were sometimes unsure how to find even with the excellent directions provided by Houka staff...nevertheless would still be our first choice in Kyoto. We loved it. Totally up to date. Concierge service through the provided mobile device was helpful and immediately responded. Quiet. Conveniently located for transport. 👍👍👍. Delightful check in experience. Felt like a typical Japanese home. Top marks on all fronts. So pleased we found this gem.

保存了老房子的格調, 重新裝潢后讓生活方便并舒適, 除了廚房稍小,其他一應用具齊全且高級和好用。雖說在深巷中, 可離旁邊一條通車的街道較近, 其中一個房間還是難免會被車聲叨擾。
