Great budget friendly spot!

Very cute place to stay! Staff were friendly and helpful, coin laundry available for 200 yen per load, and close to train stations. About a 30 minute walk from some of the major tourist spots and cheap bike rentals on the property! The room we stayed in was basic, with only a small table and fold out floor cushions for the beds, which was just fine for us. The shared bathroom was one floor down and was very clean. There was a private Ryokan available to rent out as well which was super cool!

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Property provided basic needs with futon in bedroom and clean bedding. I paid extra for the private bathroom inside bedroom option. Small tv, small table and cup set for tea inside room. Shared kitchen and refrigerator for all guests. Being this was a ryokan style hotel i thought that yukata's would be complimentary to use during stay but they charge for it and almost all amenities even a towel!. The staff was friendly and helpful. Onsite washer and dryer is a plus. Only downside is the amenities rentals and office for check-in is at another location around the block.

    good enough but there is better alternatives

    The place is okay, it has an overpowering smell of basement or mold but you get used to it. The staff is friendly, the breakfast overpriced but nice and owner a bit paranoid - there is signs with rules everywhere! Even the most obvious things has has a handmade sign. We did not really feel wellcome and did not return second time in Kyoto. Expect to 5€ for towls and such.
