Very nice and quite interesting place for whom wanna try traditional japanese style. The staff very nice and speak english, the place is clean and very quite. We had a very nice stay there, even the location is not really at the central but easy to access by metro.
The staff were excellent and welcoming. We met some nice people in the common area and our room was large! The tatami mats were very comfy.
The soundproofing was quite poor (although the host did provide earplugs)
Lovely and helpful staff
It was a great choice to stay here! Extremely nice welcome despite our late arrival we got cute note and instructions for checking in. Our room was very clean and had little fresh flower bouquet on our table, with a lot of information on the area and the house itself. Both our room and common areas were clean and well-kept. We loved how cute and cozy was this house! We were treated to traditional Japanese New Years breakfast - super nice experience and Very friendly and helpful staff!
This is a very old house so walls and everything is old and fragile - this is great but you need to keep quiet at all times and treat things with extra care to avoid breaking it.
very good and warm environment, clean bath rooms and living rooms, shared sockets and dryers, free coffee and tea in a shared kitchen, convinient transportation with buses, easy to go anywhere in Kyoto.
there is no towels for customers, if you need one you should pay for rental. we lived for three nights and they did not clean up the room during our whole stay (they just clean before we check in and that's it!). They even barely clean up the trash bin. Staff should be more diligent.
With a stay at Higurashi-Sou in Kyoto (Central Kyoto), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Nijō Castle and Kyoto Imperial Palace. The front desk is staffed during limited hours.
