Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Comfortable and clean place to stay! We loved the traditional look of the place. Great location - easy to walk to Shijo and Gion, but without the crowds. We will definitely stay here again. The only thing is that there is only two shower rooms to share among all guests, so we just need to budget our schedule around it. Not a big issue for us
