My friend and I had an incredibly lovely stay at OKI's Inn. The owners of the guest house were delightful and happy to help us with any query! The location was excellent given the subway was practically next door and there were numerous sights within walking distance. The bedroom, bathroom and kitchen were all impeccably tidy. I would 110% recommended OKI's Inn to friends, family and fellow travellers :) Pick this guesthouse if you're seeking serene atmosphere within the heart of a city.

Oki's Inn was a great place to stay, that I would highly recommend to anyone. It's close to central Kyoto, within walking distance to many things, it was always clean, and the owners were very kind and always went out of their way to be friendly and helpful and make it a homely place to stay!

Even though we stayed for just one night (in transit to Tokyo) we definitely won't forget it. We we're recommended by a friend of a friend to try it. The staff are really nice and friendly and it actually was a pity we could not stay longer. We will be back!

This is a really lovely hostel. The couple who run it are so friendly and helpful and speak really good English. Only downside was there was only one shower which you had to wait for sometimes but other than that was excellent!!

The atmosphere and staff were great! It felt like a traditional Japanese guesthouse. The staff were very helpful and friendly. I was given a good recommendation for shopping and site-seeing areas! There's a local bus and subway stop less than a minute away from the Inn.

We stayed in 5 different places on our holiday in August and this was by far our favourite. Yuka and Taka were amazing hosts, made us feel at home and Taka recommended us awesome restaurants (Ichiran!). They went above and beyond to help plan our days like phoning places to check if they were open, or recommending alternatives. We did our laundry here (godsend!). Location great (near shop and subway). Thin walls but we will definitely stay here next time. Yuka and Taka you are amazing =)

This is a more traditional location, lots of wood and traditional style walls. the Internet is fine and Takka and Uke are very helpful. There are plenty of good restaurants you can walk to in 5 minutes and the metro is 2 minutes walk away. We enjoyed are stay at OKI's Inn

We had a fantastic stay here. The owners, Yuka and Taka, are extremely friendly, knowledgeable about Kyoto, and speak flawless English. The guest house has a lot of style, is spotless, and has all the facilities required to have a great stay. The location is also perfect!

We felt very lucky that we chose OKI's Inn for our short stay in Kyoto, everything was just perfect. The private room we stayed has a very elegant and traditional taste of Japan, we absolutely loved it. The whole ryokan is an old house and the owners (OKIs) readapted it into a place where the guests can have both great social time and peaceful solitarily. Last but not least, the owners are just a wonderful couple, extremely hospitable, knowledgable and helpful. Strongly recommend you to go there

We had the most amazing stay at Oki's Inn! The location was great - walking distance to a lot of sights or just a short train ride away. The couple who run this place are the loveliest people you're likely to meet in all of Japan... They could not have done more to make us feel welcome. Would definitely recommend staying here, and I plan to come back when in Kyoto next!

Hello, Rongrong Yu! It was very nice to talk to you and your parents. By the way, you put 1 for all categories even though you sound satisfied with our guesthouse. We wonder you made a mistake in rating... Could you check your review again, and reconsider it? We are looking forward to hearing from you soon. Thank you. Taka & Yuka OKI's Inn

I really loved staying at Oki's Inn. The hosts, Yuka and Taka, speak good English having studied in Australia and were so charming, fun and helpful. The position was great, in a small street full of fresh food stalls and close to the subway and a short walk to the edge of the city with beautiful temples and hillside walks. The hostel is a lovely small traditional house with a large communal tatami room and good cooking facilities. I am planning to return for longer!
