Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
We like this property because of the traditional house - very local in a way and filled with character. However, with our family of five, it was not very convenient for us due to only 1 toilet/bath. The location is very near to the JR Line, however being first to the place we have some problem finding the place as there was no sign on the side of the road to help us find the place. We need to back track our steps because we "over-shoot". We pretty much get to all the places we wanted to visit with ease via the JR Line which a plus point.

Cosy, well-maintained ryokan with nice ambience
Our family of four rather enjoyed our stay in Hotei-an. Things didn't get off to the best start because we had great difficulty locating the property. The frontage as you see in the photos doesn't actually face the street. After much wandering around with our luggage and also having to resort to calling the owners, we eventually found the property after ducking into a tiny alleyway which looked like it would have led to someone's backyard. This is a two-storey property with two bedrooms (one with beds and one with futons) on the second floor. On the first floor, there is a living room, a dining room, a kitchenette and a bathroom. The two floors are connected by a narrow and fairly steep flight of stairs so I suggest leaving your luggage on the ground floor. While the property claims to have housekeeping, it seems they are quite specific in the areas that they attend to. They will tidy the beds and replenish the towels for example, but not wash empty tea cups. All in all a very comfortable stay, that is, once you actually find the property!

這家旅社離東福寺站非常近、不過一開始不大好找就是、因為門牌很不顯眼。 以及一開始的密碼鎖我們不大會用、有稍微研究了一下。 整體住起來非常的舒適、房間大小很大、設備齊全、非常適合家族出遊或是多人同住, 整間房子都是給我們使用的、感覺就像去住別墅一樣,CHECK-IN的時候也不需特別繞去其他地方, 飯店人員會到住宿地點進行CHECK-IN及相關說明。 唯有一個小缺點就是衛浴及廁所只有一組,同時想使用的時候稍微不便。 整體來說非常推薦!!
