Property Description

Roujiya will make you feel right at home in the heart of Kyoto.

Roujiya is a cozy and modern (yet distinctly Japanese) family-owned guest house in the heart of Kyoto.

We are situated in a quiet area just a short walk from Nijo Station and close to......
- Many historic sites, including Nijo Castle
- Huge market for local people
- Delicious restaurants for local people
- The biggest 100 yen shop in Kyoto

When you use a bicycle, you can go anywhere in Kyoto city!
We offer a bicycle rental in our guesthouse.

We have a good connection for trains (JR, subway, Hankyu line, Keifuku line), so you don't have to take a bus (it is too crowded around the touristic area) .

Roujiya offers a sense of calm, community, and harmony - just what life in Kyoto is all about!

We offer fun and inviting lodgings in the heart of a tranquil Kyoto neighborhood - not a round-the-clock party. We aspire to provide guests with a uniquely Kyoto-style ambience, and peaceful relaxation is the order of the day. Our evenings are calm and restful. So we have curfews and bedtimes, because of being in a traditional area where neighboring buildings are mere inches away, we ask guests to keep noise levels down, especially after dark. If your picture of a great time in Kyoto involves staying up late into the night and partying hard, we strongly suggest that you to seek accommodations elsewhere.

No curfew. No lock out

In addtion we don't offer the children fare.

In Kyoto City, a new accommodation tax will be implemented starting October 1,2018.
Accommodation charge under JPY20,000 (per person per night), the tax amount is JPY200 (per person per night).

    Really kind and accommodating people working there. Easy to get around via bicycles, next to a neat arcade market area that smells like incense and food :) cheapish supermarket nearby as well.

    The staff lady was so fantastic. I was also impressed by how little noise the bunk bed made when climbing down, convenient for not waking people up. Appreciated no charge to keep bags there after checkout. To note: There isn't anywhere in the room to lock your bag up if you're concerned about that, everyone just has to kind of keep their stuff in the general space in the room and there's not any organization for that.

    Fantastic location, minutes walk or cycle to vibrant city hub but set in a quiet side street with a "miles from anywhere" feeling. Very friendly, interesting and helpful hostel staff and good facilities. Especially enjoyed good value bike hire and kilometre long indoor market just a few minutes walk away.

    It was clean, the location was good and lovely space. Though the rules are too strict, the front staff told my friend she couldn't even use the washroom after 11:30 pm. Yet there was a sign in the common area saying that you could. Maybe this was a miscommunication but it left a bad taste in our mouths.

    Very Good

    The staff of the guesthouse was so nice and the showers had warm water. But the whole house was cold all the time, even when they turned the aircon on warm. The beds were really uncomfortable(like some beds in Japan), and the fridge smelled really bad. The atmosphere were really nice because of the people, and you could rent bicycles which was nice. If you want to come before check in or stay after check out, they charge you like 500-1000 yen. Our stay was fine, but we would not come back.

    The guesthouse is lovely and the staff were very helpful. It is a peaceful and small guesthouse so if you are looking for that then this is your place. The location isn’t amazing but you can get across Kyoto in about 30 mins on foot. The facilities were fine, but there is no drying machine. Also you have to pay for towels which I think is a bit ludicrous considering the hostel is very pricey.
