The location is good, near the main train station and the place is very clean.My biggest complaint is about the booking process. At the moment of booking you are told you may be placed in another building. It never tells you it is of a total different nature. It is not at all like a ryokan or a machiya, but a modern built house. There is nothing wrong with it, but it was a big let down since it was not what we were expecting. Also, they could not keep our luggage for a few hours after check out.

Super sweet small hostel/hotel/house in a residential area pretty close to Kyoto station. Public transport easy to reach in 5 minutes walk. It was clean and cosy al over the place and the personel were all very nice. A small cafe & restaurant where you can enjoy Japanese dishes and even a small Japanese garden. Good kitchen facilities, a laundry machine and umbrellas available. Really enjoyed our stay!

Staff were excellent giving us a good explanation on the rules of the hotel and a little book with all the instructions even how to turn the a/c on! All with cute drawings handmade. Our room was ryokan inspired so we had futons clean and comfortable! Has good kitchen facilities although we never cooked ;). Great location, very close to the train station

We were saying in a double private room in number 16. The room was clean but extremely small. We had nowhere to put our suitcases out when we laid out the futons. The walls of this place were extremely thin and we could near everything going on in the building at all times. The biggest thing that we thought was an issue was the location whilst close to a train station wasn't close to the JR. Also the map on the door to reception was actually incorrect and led to nowhere wasting 30 minutes!

Thank you for your stay and comment. Please excuse us to explain our place from our side, too. First of all, the rooms are not spacious as western hotels. This is because we would like to offer our guests the casual joyful at reasonable cost in comparison with other hotels or Ryokans in Kyoto. Also, your room booked is the economy twin room, which means economically friendly and small for a 2 people use. Regarding the sound trouble, these problems sometimes happen even we forewarn every guests to keep quiet at check-ins. However, we are very sad that we could not get asked for any helps during your stay, but after your stay. We are always ready to help our guests to sort out the problems. Thus, we would like all to feel free to ask us for helps. Although we get these downward comments, we thank you for your positive comment for the cleanness. Concerning the map or access, it might be difficult for some people to read the map precisely in Kyoto. This can be same that we can assist you with. If you do not have confidence to find our reception yourself, you can ask us to pick you up in front of Ikoi-no-Ie. We are willing to do so. If you cannot figure out the way from Kyoto station, we are more than happy to back you up in advance by e-mail or phone. Therefore, please do not hesitate to ask us for any helps even it is a minor concern. We appreciate again your stay this time. We hope that you could have enjoyed your trip in Kyoto at least.

Very nice but small private room in a traditional Japanese style with shared (very clean) bathroom facilities. We hired bikes which were very handy for exploring Kyoto. I stayed for 3 days but would happily have stayed for longer.

Two elderly Grandmas visiting Japan for the first time--staff here couldn't have been more friendly /helpful. Changed our room to accommodate bad backs etc, provided extra futons, yukatas to lounge in, helpful info about internet access. Lots of families staying there-from various countries. Everyone treated with equal efficiency and kindness. Excellent value for money. AND Very Clean!!
