Decent place for decent value
Friendly staff, home-feel, relaxed and convenient for more residential area feel
Good place with very friendly owner trying to help and assist. More a converted house into hotel but feels nice. Value is good, easy access to many places and feels nice to live not in a touristy place. Overall - good place to stay.

inconvenient but comfy
the room is clean and comfortable. but you have to climb up the slope for 10 minutes to reach the hotel. the bakery nearby is excellent. it's quiet and the bread is of high quality.

Great staff and wonderful atmosphere
Staff, Comfort, Friendliness
We had a lovely stay at Kyoto Inn Higashiyama. Upon arriving, Marisa gave us a binder of tourist information and also highlighted on a map all the key locations we should visit in Kyoto. We also were there just in time for the Gion Matsuuri, so she also gave us information about the parade that would happen the next day. During our next few days there, Taka (hope I spelled it right) gave us rides to the subway/bus stations as well our next location, which we felt so grateful for. The Inn is a bit hard to find, so I recommend allowing enough time to navigate. Our room and the rest of the Inn itself is so comfortable - the kitchen was spacious and clean, and the dining and living areas were great to have meals at and to have nice conversations with the other guests. We were also able to use the laundry facilities there, which was great. The only thing we might have wanted in our room or in the Inn was some type of locker or safety deposit box to use during the day (There may have been one in the staff office on the first floor but we were not able to find out before we left.) They were also really gracious in letting us store our luggage there and taking us to our next hostel :) Thank you for the wonderful stay!

Good Memory
Staff, Location, Warm
This is Little warm place for family and group travelers. I want to thank you their staff 'Taka' and 'Koro' (Sorry if I type wrong name) and all of them for taking care of me and my bff. They can advice all thing you should know for staying in Kyoto. They are professional and very good in English. This place is like a homestay more than a hotel if you want to live like you have your own house in Kyoto... Please start from here.

An ok stay
Super service, nice room, cozy feeling
The stay was ok overall. It wasn't the cleanest place, but I was fine with it considering I stayed at other hostels/guesthouses before that were not this standard. Location wise, I didn't find that it was very convenient to get to the inn. We had to take a taxi in and out of the area which was residential. Not recommended for elder people to stay at as the stairs are very steep. But I do applaud the 2 service staff there. They were very helpful and provided us with a lot of useful information. They were always quick to assist us in any way.

Above and Beyond
Friendliness, Hospitality and Comfy!
If you're looking for a place that is close by to rail or bus services, this is not it. But if you're a traveling couple and wish to have a little space and privacy all by yourself, this is it! It is about 10-15 minute walk from the nearest bus stop, but don't let this be the deal breaker, buses come frequently and the Inn is even within walking distance to the Museum. If you're coming during autumn (like me), there's even a temple nearby (walking distance) with amazing fall leaves, it felt like our little garden as there weren't many tourist. We even found a local gem serving delicious Udon and Soba nearby, you'd miss it if you were to take the bus or rail. All in all, it was an amazing experience staying at Kyoto Inn, we even got a car ride to the nearest rail station when we left, there's little else to ask for really. If I were to come back to Kyoto, I know exactly where I'd stay next :)

Cozy guesthouse in a residential area
Coziness, price. and staff
It was good. The place was cozy and the staff were very helpful. It was quite a walk from Tofukuji Station though.
