    The place was excellent, great location , a few blocks from the kyoto station, if you want to experience the traditional japanese ryokan stay this is one of the best options. Also you can use a bicycle for free.

    Everything was great.

    The Staff was great, friendly and helpful. They filled my Waterbottle every Day and I'm very thankful. The Room was large and adequate. When leaving the Hotel you can leave the Keys on the Reception, if you come back after 9pm. If you are come back in the Hotel before, the Key can be packed. A very sweet but slightly shy cat walks through the aisles in the morning and evening. Also the Bedlinen and Towels are changed regularly.

    it is unfortunately rustic and in the years like dusty and worn in many places (not dirty!) Not the Hotels fault: - loud Neighbors - loud Door slamming, loud and long Talkings and other Noises between 6 and 7am - Some of the other Guests left a lot of Hair on the Sink and didn't clean up. - No functional Window to use forVventilation or Daylight.

    - Clean facility - Centrally located - No fuss check-in and check-out - In the summer the common area downstairs is probably nice to sit at - Free bikes to borrow from the owner - Free Wifi

    - Common area was not in use much and therefore not heated - The bikes are free but were to small for us, maybe they will be a better fit for you - Wifi only works in the front rooms and common area

    The whole place was great, quiet and comfortable. We loved that we could borrow bikes for free, it was awesome in Kyoto!

    Walking distance from Kyoto station which was very convenient. Good size double room. If you like to experience Japanese ryokan at affordable price this property is a good choice.

    The shared bathroom could be better.
