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 More

Unfortunately, I only had 2 days in Kyoto, but my stay at the Gojo Annex made it a fantastic experience with the friendly and helpful attitude by all staff. Located in small narrow streets and close to a wealth of ancient attractions easy and local restaurant accessible by foot or bike, More

The hostel is a little hard to find. It is not near metro station, but it is quite near to Yazaka, Kiyomizu area. The hostel building is a traditional domestic house, this attracts me quite a bit. The area is quite quiet, a good place to rest. No TV in the room, toilet is clean, staff More

Very nice guest house with friendly and helpful owner! The guest house is situated in the Gion district and it is easy to see Geishas on the street which is amazing! It is also close to Kiyomizudera and close to other sightseeing spots. The room was simple but clean and nice! The perfect More

It's was such a nice stay in the hotel: friendly and helpful staff (even help me to call a local restaurant for checking availability), spacious room, and excellent location which makes you feel like part of the local community but still not far away from the underground. With such a More

I really recommend this hostel if you plan to stay some days in Kyoto. The location is good ( not excellent though), but the hostel itself is really nice. The staff is among the most helpful and friendly I have ever met, making your stay quite comfortable. They are really good at giving More

Great place to stay whilst visiting Kyoto if you're looking for a traditional Japanese experience. Only criticism I have is that the location is a little out of the way, however the bus stop is just at the bottom of the street. Rooms are traditional, relaxing and clean, which is all you More
