This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is a 5 minute walk from JR Uzumasa Station. Uzumasa is 15 minutes west of Kyoto Station (on a local train) and 1 stop before Arashiyama. It is off on a quiet street off a main road. The owners are hospitable and speak English fairly well. The hand-drawn maps of the immediate area + western part of Kyoto is so helpful. They also have various maps for central Kyoto. It is clean, comfortable. The free wifi access is wonderful, as it was the only form of outside access (no TV, no phone). Not that you need those things, but good to be able to email and such. However, there are thin walls. If you have noisy neighbors, you will hear everything. There is a train that runs through the back of the house and the "bing bing" sound that goes off every time the train passes is difficult, particularly if you are sensitive to sound like I am. However, the train stops around midnight and starts again around 5AM. I slept fine during those times, but had difficulty otherwise. I think that if you go at a time that is quiet, you will have a very tranquil experience. The western part of Kyoto is beautiful, enjoyed it as much, if not more, than central Kyoto.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We had a quick stay at the guest house, we did not use much the facilities (wifi only). The owners were nice, the room was big enough and the air conditioner worked well (temperature need the owner to be set, just ask). The location is not perfect since it's between 10 and 20 minutes of train from kyoto station, but it is a JR line (for those having a JR pass). If you stay there, there are many thing to see around and at about 1 train station too. And the hot spring is great too !
