Absolutely the best place I stayed during all my time in Japan. I was only at this guesthouse for one night, booked last-minute to fill in space between other plans on the basis that the reviews seemed good (I didn't even read all the information), but was somewhat humbled by what I found. When I arrived the guests were all sitting around the table talking and the atmosphere was very friendly. The staff are among the nicest people I've met and I felt right at home and in safe hands. I definitely would have stayed longer if my next accommodation hadn't already been booked. The guesthouse is a beautiful old Kyoto house that even has a tiny courtyard garden. Just being here is nice, and if you stay here I'd even advise that you leave some time in your day to spend with the staff and guests! I wasn't there for very long, but I enjoyed my time there a lot and even left with my name in amazing calligraphy. I will definitely visit again. Thank you.
The only thing I can think of at all is that maybe a space for hanging a soggy raincoat more out of the way would be nice, but you can't have everything!
Best stay of our trip through Japan! The amazing hosts made our time in Kyoto unforgettable and it was hard to say goodbye, thank you Mama & Papa & Koko!
Everything! It was a pleasure to stay there. Mama and Papa are the best host ever! They treat you like part of the family and they care so much for you. Plus the experience of staying in a old traditional house is unique. The breakfast is the amazing too!
Nothing. It was perfect!!
The hosts are the nicest people you'll ever meet. They are beyond sweet and will help you with any problem you face without hesitation.
Beyond any expectations! Mama and Papa made my stay so enjoyable and comfy, I couldn't ask for more. Warm-hearted and sincere people who love what they do. The place is just awesome, I felt I'm in an old Japanese fairytale with modern facilities :) and I guess the place attracts like-minded people, all the guests I met were super nice and we spent great time every morning sharing our experiences and having delicious breakfast. Thank you Mama and Papa, you are amazing!
The location may be a bit confusing for such dummies like me :), anyway there are a few bus stops around from where you can get to literally anywhere in the city.
