This is a Trusted Review. Why?
This hotel was mostly very good during our one week stay. Unfortunately on the last night there was a mouse scattering around the japanese dining area that scared a few guests away from sitting in that section lol. I didn't see any mouse upstairs, but our room had a mouse sized hole in it that was covered up.
The location of the hotel is so-so. It's near the Gion district so that was nice, there are some really good restaurants along a street next to the river and in the Gion district (although it's a little more expensive here). Otherwise transportation isn't exactly fantastic here. There is a train station nearby, but it doesn't accept the 2 day kyoto train pass. The bus that runs along the main road also does not accept the pass, so you're forced to walk to Gojo station which is another 10 minutes walk.
Other than that the stay was pretty good. They gave us some drink coupons that made the drinks really cheap. Staff were friendly and they facilities are pretty good. I was happy with the stay and would recommend it.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Very good experience at the guesthouse. Definitely more character than in the overpriced ryokans we tried. Plus friendly and helpful staff, cheap bike rental facility, and public baths just round the corner. Excellent value for money.
