This guesthouse has very good reviews which I made the decision to book it. We stayed here for 3 nights from 7 Nov to 10 Nov 2015 at SGD116 per night. Triple room with attached bathroom. Breakfast included. We stayed at the annex building of the guesthouse. A 4 storey apartment just a few steps away.
From JR Kyoto Station, we took the subway Karasuma Line to Karasuma Oike (K08)- then transferred to Tozai line – got off at “Higashiyama” station (T10) – coming out from this station – turned right and walked to the exit – out of th exit, crossed the main road and walk about 4 minutes
Room is clean and big enough for 3 adults. One bunk bed and a double decker bed. There is a wash basin in the room though there is another one at the toilet. Toilet also comes with a heater. Kettle provided. No towel provided. No housekeeping for the 3 nights we were there.
Breakfast is at the main guesthouse. Quite a wide spread of bread, fruits, scrambled egg and the delicious Japanese rice which I liked it very much. Owner was there every morning to make sure his guests are happy at the breakfast time. Good job.
Nearby are many cafes and restaurants. Of course, convenient store Lawson is just round the corner where we bought our water every night.
It is good value if you do not mind the subway transfers from JR Kyoto Station. I find it a little waste of time and money for the transfers.
