Fantastically located little old guest house

very special place

the building, location, climate
The house itself its amazing - small, cute and really old. Nicely restored, located in the coolest part of Kyoto (Gion), but also walking distance from the station. The only minus was the traffic outside our window (the other side of the house faces a quiet little street).

Beautiful friendly traditional guesthouse

Culturally appealing, close to everything, comfy
Rakuza is situated in the centre of the Geisha district, Gion, which also holds many festivals and is home to many great souvenir shops and shrines. Staff were good at English and very helpful - they will have a map for you to see what shops are around. I was here in winter and the heaters were great even though I have chronic bronchitis I wasn't even cold at all when I slept. Highly recommended.
