Property Information:

We have been running the Gojo Guest House in Kyoto for the past 10 years with high feedback ratings from our guests and we opened the new Gojo Guest House 'Annex'. It shares the same traditional Japanese style of building that has been popular with our guests and offers both Western and Japanese (Tatami) style rooms.

Located in a traditional neighborhood of historic beauty around the famous Geisha quarters of Gion, it is right on the doorstep of Kyoto's main sight seeing area while also close to the city's central entertainment region. Some of the major sights nearby are Kiyomizu temple and Yasaka shrine.

Our staff are Japanese locals who have themselves travelled extensively, all of whom are English-speaking. We are always happy to provide friendly help and advice to our guests who have particular interests or require some specific planning for their stay.

The rooms available are single, twin and family/group size, all of which are equipped with air conditioning. Our comprehensive facilities include free internet, bicycle rental, laundry (with free detergent), kitchen, lockers and more. The common room is an ample Japanese style tatami area, offering a great place to socialise and relax. We also have a roof deck on the top floor with excellent views of the surrounding area including Kyoto Tower and the local Gion neighbourhood.

Gojo Guesthouse Annex will appeal to independent travellers who possess a keen interest in culture and the arts. Many of our guests in the past have been musicians, artists and writers looking for a good value place to stay in an authentic Japanese environment.

Reception is closed from 13:00 to 15:00 and there will be no-one present at
this time. During this time, if you wish to leave your luggage somewhere
safe before you check-in or until your departure, you may only do so at our
main building: Gojo Guest House, a ten minute walk from the Annex on Gojo Street.
Thank you for your co-operation.

    I really did enjoy staying here, and although when booking through Hostelworld there was a little bit of an issue as to which room i ended up booking, the room was still pleasant. Air conditioned which was a blessing, and the bed was very comfortable. The place is old, so you do have to bear with the rickety door handles and such, and the clothed dryer basically isn't worth the money (but they do tell you this!) Otherwise really good location, near enough to main roads but still quiet!
