My family and I stayed at the guesthouse for 4 nights. It is located in a residential area at suburb of the city, quiet a distant walk from the nearest subway, Kitoaji Station. There is no road sign, so follow closely to the map given on the website. It will take about 1/2 hour to travel by bus from Kyoto Station and walk about 5 mins from the bus stop at the main road to the guesthouse. However, going to all the tourist attractions from the guesthouse by bus is very convenient. There are restaurants, supermarkets and convenient stores nearby.
We found the guesthouse quiet complacent and comfortable. It like staying at home
with a small shared kitchen where you can cook and make your coffee and tea and a a small common room where you can sit down relax and meet up with the other guests.
We stayed in two rooms with a coffee table, which is big enough to have the mattresses laid, put your luggage.
The owner, taniguchi san, stays with his family next door. You just need to ring the door bell whenever you have any query or need help. Just tell him where you want to go and he will give advice on the most convenient ways and other suggestions.
If you want to experience Japanese way of living, try staying here. We find our stay a pleasant and a memorable one !!! The place is warm and cozy and it is a different experience compared to staying in a hotel.
