Good location.
Convenient location, friendly staff,cheap bike rental. It is a bit run down. The staff are very helpful but I would spend a little more and get a much better value elsewhere.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Extremely helpful staff who called up Shinkansen services to locate a lost bag. They went out of their way to find it and where incredibly friendly throughout the stay! Traditional style house which adds to the feel of staying in Kyoto, good central location within easy walking distance from buses and subway networks to all the various temples you might want to see. Very simple! It seemed like they’d been doing it well for a long time :)
