Amazing place, location and service
If there’s space, book this place, you will love it! Traveling with a family of 5 we booked a private room for 4 nights. Room was clean and spacious. The place is located one step away from the train station and the beautiful historical district of Gion, super close to the action but still located in a quiet street. Location is so great that we even saw Geishas on the very first day whilst walking around. There’s a convenience store across the street and is walking distance from restaurants and main sightseeing spots. WiFi in the room worked perfectly and the staff were very helpful and nice. This has definitely been one of the best places we’ve stayed during our 15 day trip through Japan. A couple of hiccups, the private rooms are located on the ground floor next to the reception so it can be a bit noisy if there’s people speaking loud at the lobby or the TV is on, but in general everyone is very mindful of the noise. Also, although there was a curtain trying to block it, having the light of the WiFi router flashing during the night in the room was annoying. But these were small things compared to the overall stay. We’d definitely stay here again!
