Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This is by far the most amazing place I have ever stayed at in my entire life. I have traveled to countless places around the world, but never received this kind of hospitality and great service. The location is in such a beautiful area - close to the MTR and temples which is great for anyone traveling to Japan for the first time.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This was one of the most comfortable places I stayed at while in Japan. It is located in a quiet neighborhood filled with people running little shops out of their homes. The room was quite spacious and I liked having a washer/dryer unit in the room itself. When I checked out, the staff called me a complimentary taxi to Kyoto station. Can't recommend this place highly enough.
