5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Stayed for three nights with our 12 and 9 year old. Room comfortable - double bed under bunks for children. Clean, friendly. Breakfast available bread/toast jam , boiled eggs, orange juice. Very easy for laundry - washing machine and dryer in bathroom - 200 yen for washing machine - drying room on our balcony and roof. Dryer 100yen for 20 minutes - fine to finish drying off after being on balcony. Common room area downstairs with cooking facilities and glasses etc. - we had great fun socialising with a very international group. Happily stay here again - 15 minute walk from Kyoto station, 20 minute walk from Fushimi Inari. Family mart combini 100m away.

Comfortable Stay
Stayed for 5 nights in a family room for 4. The room is very small and there's hardly any space to move around. Otherwise the stay was very comfortable. Common areas are very clean and neat. Breakfast is simple and on certain days very delicious Japanese tea rice is also served. The manager is very friendly.
