Excellent location in a quaint and quiet but well connected part of Kyoto, nice cafes, convenience stores, unique shops and pharmacies all a stone’s throw away.
Room was incredibly clean and surprisingly roomy with a booth-like seating area and a kitchenette with an electric cooktop, some pots and pans, utensils and sink wi th sponge and dish soap!
If you’re an English speaker, staff are mostly internationals and are all good with English.
The nonexistent pillows!!!!!! So flat, was just like an empty piece of cloth. Pretty ridiculous. We asked for more pillows because one per person was insufficient but the staff said they couldn’t offer more, gave us more towels to prop up fhe pillows instead. I appreciate the effort but ..??!?
They don’t offer daily cleaning services, only after you check out, so you need to take out your own trash everyday, which was fine for us but may be frustrating for some.
Staff are all very young, most internationals, they seem like they’re university students on a gap year. Interesting mix but may not offer the most attentive service that people who stay at regular hotels may be used to.
