        Small but ok”
        At a walking distance from Kyoto station with the equipment needed although the rooms are small. Some rooms have no windows or with the neighbour’s wall at 5 centimeters so it should be mentioned. I was lucky I could change room. But stop close to the guest house. Not for claustrophobic.

        It take about 20-30 minutes walk from Kyoto station. The room is small with indescribable smell. We got a room facing main road. U can actually hear the vehicles moving on the road. It was hard to get a tight sleep.

        So so.”
        I booked for a room for 3 people, but it was somewhat small. Maybe it would be more appropriate for two. Room was clean, but I smelled an disgusting odor that night, which was maybe from the food the host was eating. It wasn't that pleasant experience. If asked to visit her again, well....

        Clean rooms.
        The room was large and clean, but very bare. Just a mattress + pilllow + blankets, a small table and hooks on the wall for hanging clothes. For this level of furnishing/facilities, the value isn't very good. Location is average, about 500m walk to the train/bus station. The owner is a Chinese immigrant, so she speaks Mandarin as well.

        experience Japanese Tatami style room
        The room is small but clean. The manager in this hotel can speak Chinese. The living room with sofa posted in the internet is only for reference as the manager uses this space for her to fold and pack towels. However, this guest house is near to the river, shopping streets and many others attractive areas. A bit of walking is needed. If you don't want to walk you can rent a bicycle from this guest house with 500 yen per day.

        The hotel is samall with very clean room and toilet. It is a quiet place to relax and there are friendly staff who can speak Chinese to assist. I am allowed to check in early in the morning without additional charges. There is no restaurant in the hotel but there are many restaurants nearby.Free WiFi is available and easy to connect. The Kyoto station and Schijijo Keihan Ralway station are within walking distance. Keihan railway provides cheaper transport to Osaka, Kobe, Nara and Lake Biwa as compared to JR West. The JR West Haruka line from Kansai Airport stops at Kyoto station. There is a underground mall extending from the Kyoto Station to Schijijo. When we exit from the Schijijo exit, BJ Family House is just a short distance away.

        the place is located in a good place near the station, just one bus stop. but it seems they had some sort of kimchi/vinegar explosion and the place smelled really really bad. when we entered the room the smell was even stronger and the window was blocked with wooden planks so we couldn't even open the window to freshen the place. if you don't anywhere else to sleep go there.

        Guest house was not easy to locate. It is more than 10 minutes walk from Kyoto station. The pleasent & mandarin speaking desk manager made us feel welcome. A point to note, the staircase to the 2nd floor is very narrow, take care going up & down. Bus stop in front of guest house makes getting around easy.
