Serene and picturesque

Posted Jul 25, 2015
Really clean place, great staff-very warm and kind. This guesthouse is located in a serene and picturesque park, surrounded by temples and shrines. It is a pleasant 15-minute downhill walk to the central part of town. Quick taxi ride from the Kyoto Station (about $10-15).

Above maruyuma park away from the City (Romantic)

Posted Mar 16, 2015
Pros: Great location, staff, tucked above Maruyuma park away from the hustle and bustle.
Location: Shoren-in, Chion in, and Gion(especially at night). Hot Bath room to soak after a long day is a must in Kyoto.
The train station and bus stop are about a 15-20 min walk. Yes you have to walk up a hill, but I didn't mind the change of scenery especially coming from Tokyo. It's not too far from a few of the favorite temples and popular spot to explore Shoren-in, Chion in, and Gion(especially at night) They have two shared Hot bath room to enjoy after a long day of exploring. The staff is wonderful, provide breakfast in the morning, and are very helpful. I will not hesitate to book another stay when I visit Kyoto again.

전통 집에서 지내는 하루1

Posted Mar 7, 2015
Pros: 전통 분위기. 편안하고 친절한 스태프. 깔끔한 시설과 정성스러운 식사.
Cons: 난방이라고 할 것이 없어 추웠어요. 또 주위에 지하철은 말할 것도 없고 버스정거장에서도 꽤 멉니다.
Location: 숙소까지 가는 길이 산책길로도 좋습니다. 공원을 통해서도 갈 수 있어요.
100년정도 된 오래된 집을 보수하여 만든 곳이기때문에 현대적으로 편안한 시설을 기대하기보단 분위기를 즐기시면 좋을 듯 합니다. 전 매우 즐겁게 잘 지냈어요.

What a gem!

Amazing stay! The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The Inn was beautiful and was right through a park and next to three temples. While the Inn was quiet and peaceful we were minutes away from a thriving restaurant and shopping district. This inn is a gem. I hope to stay there again soon.

Little japanese-style hotel with personal service. Peaceful location at the beginning of the hills. Very nice owners who make Japanese culture accessible to foreigners.

Très bien mais...

Posted Sep 29, 2014 on Hotels
Beau ryokan dans un coin très calme mais pas trop loin des rues animées de Gion. Salle de bain (commune) très propre avec bain chaud agréable. Inconvénients : 15 mn à pied du 1er arret de bus ou metro et pas très bien indiqué (un seul panneau en anglais, tout le reste en japonais). Personnel très attentionné.

Ryokan molto bello, ma un pò lontano dal centro.

Posted Sep 24, 2014
Pros: La struttura è davvero molto bella, anche le vasche ad immersione a 40° nei bagni.
Cons: Mettere le serrature alle porte delle camere non sarebbe male.
Location: E' immerso nel verde in posizione super-tranquilla, ma un pò difficile da raggiungere dal centro di Gion, anche perchè la strada è in salita.
La prenotazione era con bagno in camera, ma al nostro arrivo abbiamo scoperto di avere bagni in comune, se pur molto belli. Inoltre le camere non hanno serrature alle porte chiudibili dall'esterno. Una mattina dopo la colazione ci siamo ritrovati con 20.000 yen in meno nella borsa e ne siamo sicuri perchè avevamo contato i soldi prima di andare a letto (come ogni sera). La filosofia del "tutto in comune" è bella, ma abbiamo imparato a nostre spese che non puoi mai sapere chi sono gli altri ospiti; meglio non fidarsi!
