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.
Free bike rental for short hops around. The hosts, Mama and Papa, are very lovely.
Definitely our best stay in Japan! The hosts are very kind and fun, making our stay a very exceptional experience. They are a couple that always went the extra mile for us, taking care of every detail. Mama is a magic woman, she connects herself with every guest and make everyone enjoy themselves together. This is a place that makes us want to get back from downtown earlier just to catch the happy hour time. We stayed in the private TATAMI room between 2 green gardens and enjoyed the traditional Japanese flair. The area is residential, so you could go to local restaurants and supermarkets nearby to get good food. The breakfast exceeded our expectations. We will definitely book here again if we ever come back to Kyoto.
Really nice breakfast is included. During the trip in Japan, this guesthouse is the only place i feel like a cozy place to make some new friends when I came here alone
Papa, Mama and Coco were really great hosts. They make you feel so welcome. The extra miles that they put in such as calligraphy by Papa as gifts, sending us to the restaurant and Kyoto station were all appreciated. I stayed in the private room and it was so clean and comfortable. Breakfast was simple but it's the company of Mama that does the magic to make it great. Will definitely stay here again the next time I visit Kyoto!
Nothing! Maybe the location is a bit far from the train station but Papa and Mama had made up for it with their welcoming. The area is very quiet and serene, away from the bustling.
With a stay at Guesthouse KYOTO COMPASS - Hostel in Kyoto (Central Kyoto), you'll be within a 5-minute drive of Toji Temple and Katsura Imperial Villa. Featured amenities include microwave in a common area and refrigerator in a common area.
