I absolutely love staying at Guest House Bon. Taniguchi-san, the owner, is such a warm, friendly, and incredibly helpful host, with decent English skills. He will sit down with you and a map and explain in detail how to get to restaurants, sites, etc. He will drive you to the subway station when you're leaving. The Guest House itself is beautifully decorated, and has a very friendly atmosphere.
Some say that it is a bit far from the city center, but Kita-ku is a nice part of town, and you can easily walk to amazing Daitokuji Temple and Imamiya Shrine. And if you take advantage of Guest House Bon's bike rentals, you can easily bike all over the city. Funaoka onsen is also nearby.
I can't recommend this place enough! Every time I come back to Kyoto (3 times now), I always stay there.
