Gojo Guesthouse Annex was exactly what I was looking for--right in the middle of Gion where most of Kyoto's attractions are, but also had traditional Japanese style rooms. It's a quiet, peaceful guesthouse, so those who are looking for a more social experience might want to consider other options in Kyoto. The service here was great, and the staff were very accommodating with my late night arrival--they waited for me until I arrived :) Highly recommend!

Absolutely brilliant staff, very helpful and always willing to help you plan your days. Nice and comfortable rooms and good facilities in general. Great location as only 10-15 minute walk away from Kiyomizu Dera temple, with a bus stop 3 minutes away and a subway station 15 minutes away. Would recommend all of my friends who visit Kyoto to stay in this place.

Excellent location for Gion area and temples. Less than 2 mins walk to bus stop. About 15 mins bus to/from Kyoto Stn. Very clean room, comfy western bed. Cold in hallways when going from room to basement (washrooms). Room had heating in colder months and AC in warmer months. Free drink ticket. Host provided maps and info on tourist sites.

LOVED our stay at Gojo Guesthouse!! It has been one of my favorite places I've stayed at in Japan! It has a cozy, more traditional feel and the rooms are more spacious than other hostels and Air BnBs I've stayed at. The location is excellent and the staff are really helpful! Make sure to hang your laundry out on the rooftop for an amazing view of Kyoto. Really miss this place already and would love to stay again. Thank you.

We met both Nari and Keita who made our stay very comfortable. Keita oriented us with the bus routes and recommended place nearby. The guesthouse was almost in the heart of Gion and Shijo shopping area. Very walkable. The surroundings felt very alive yet still so safe. Overall, it's so easy to fall in love with Kyoto especially when staying in a guesthouse that is so near to everything. Cannot wait to book here again!

Very friendly staff, great location to visit different places in Kyoto. 24h Store just around the corner. Excellent recommendations from staff of restaurants. I would recommend to get a traditional Japanese room with futon. We got the Western room and the space is a bit tight. We had a very nice view from our room though. Bathrooms in the basement, but basin in every floor.

A very nice hostel with super friendly staff. Nice clean room with air conditioner. Good location, walking distance from the city centre and big temple areas. The only minus was that Annex was a little bit difficult to find when coming from Kyoto train station. However, folks at Gojo Guesthouse at Gojo dori (which was a lot easier to find) gave great help.
