    The owner is very kind, polite and helpful . Location was convenient with bus stop and train station nearby. Room was neat and tidy. It would be great if the bed was not that hard. It is a very personal preference though

    Great place, lots of space compared to most Japanese accomodation. Very close to the Keihan line subway. The staff made me feel very welcome too. They have both public and private bathrooms for those keen on the onsen.

    To fit in Kyoto style, we chose here to try tranditional Japanese-style ryokan with tatami room. It's beyond our expectation. Staff are so nice & super helpful. Terrific room with koi pond. Brilliant!

    No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
