Cool Japan style experience!”

Close to Kyoto Train station, and a short walk to the Kyoto-Kawaramachi station (which is the shopping district). Neighborhood is quiet, and there is a temple, and a Tea-house Garden on either side of the block. The room itself was clean, comfortable and well equipped - Dryer in the shower room, Laundry Machine, Fridge, T.V, everything you'd need. There's even a vending machine on the ground floor if you need a drink. Staff are helpful, they have English guides in the rooms, which are a big help to navigate the air con & laundry Cons - - There was an unexpected tourist fee when we checked in, 200yen per person per day, so be aware. - The Tatami Mat space is raised, so I kept tripping over the step, stubbing my toe on it, and even fell off of it as I was getting out of the futon -- so just be aware, or if you can, rearrange the futons so it's easier to move around the space. - No lifts, so just be aware especially if you have lots of luggage with you, as the stair well is quite narrow.

Great stuff and facilities ”

I and two of my friends went to Kyoto together. We including me had stayed at BochiBochi for the first time. The guy who did the check-in for us on the first day was so nice to us. He did research some places to visit in Kyoto for us and was impressive. The room was tiny but so clean and comfortable to stay. I will come back here again soon in the future. Highly recommended:)!

Very convenient, quiet and comfortable.”

The building is an old fashion without an elevator. Facilities are amazing convenient! Although the living room is a little narrow but is also OK for big luggage, the bedroom is capacious. There are washing machine, microwave and induction cooker. They provide bowls and plates. Washing room is very clean. Bathroom with a heater in the ceiling, which can be used to dry your washed clothes. You can have a shower and take a bath in the bathtub, it's very Japanese. People here are friendly. Almost no room service, except change towel and college garbage which you should take it out by yourself and put it in the corridor beside the door. Quite different from China. You can borrow umbrellas and they can help to keep your luggage after you check out. Location is perfect, less than 10 minutes to TOKYO STATION on foot. Shosei-en Garden(渉成園) is at the across. 5 minutes to Higashi Honganji (東本願寺).Quit near to Kyomizu Temple(清水寺)and Kyoto National Museum.

Will go back here again”

Location is a bliss. Short bus ride or a long walk from Kyoto Station. Staff comes in by 9am. Though you can't checkin before 4pm, you may leave your luggage and freshen up in washroom outside before heading out the majestic Kyoto City. I got a triple sharing room. It is BIG in Japanese standards. Kitchen is full (not the typical one-shelf-kitchen in Tokyo). Beds has a separate room. A PC. A washing machine and iron board. Residential area. You have to walk a little for restaurants. Some vending machines on the road for drinks. Downside, no elevator. They are willing to help with the luggage. Check out is 11am. They can keep your luggage until 5pm. If you're leaving after 5, luggage storage near Kyoto Station will be offered for FREE. This saves you from getting coin lockers.

The location of guesthouse is exactly same as the map provided. It's very easy to find, about 5-10 mins walking from Kyoto Station. The guesthouse is clean and spacious for 5 of us. We were allowed to keep our luggages at the guesthouse before check in. The staff are very nice, they helped to move all our luggages to our room. After check out, we kept our luggages at i satellite, which is very near to Kyoto Station. I satellite open until 9pm. This guesthouse is recommended.

Experiencing the best of Kyoto guest house”

I would say YES. Everything is WOW. Location: 8 min to JR Kyoto station, yet super quiet in a small street. Facility: about 200 sq.ft for a 3 beds room including kitchen and bath. Everything in detail is fantastic. Service: floor duty 9-5 for check-in/out, self check-in after 5 looks pretty easy as per instruction. I will definitely recommend this guest house to my friends and will stay again next time in Kyoto.

Spacious room. Good for those with family!”

We were amazed by just how big the room was. We love the entire room layout. I was particularly impressed with how there was a tap fixed on top of the toilet bowl such that after you flush, the water you used to wash your hands will go into the toilet bowl for use. The toilet was huge and you could play with the temperature (especially when it's cold to bathe). The bedroom was big with comfortable beds. There was a huge wardrobe space for us to lay out luggage. The staff was friendly and approachable and recommended good food. Only wished we had decided to stay here longer. Would definitely recommend this guesthouse to other friends if they are heading to Kyoto in future.

The room was spacious, functional, clean and comfortable. The surrounding area is quiet. ”

We really liked that the place was clean and well equipped. It's about a 15 min walk from Kyoto station -- could be a bit of a struggle with big luggage bags. Also there are no lifts but the highest you'd need to walk is 2 floors up. We stayed in a room for 4 people. It was spacious with generous wardrobe space. There's no housekeeping but the place is equipped with extra towels and linen. The surrounding area is peaceful and quiet. There are some restaurants and convenience stores nearby.

The location is 10 to 15 mins away from Kyoto Station JR with various amenities nearby. The rooms are clean and the layout was well thought out. Adding a laundry line in the bathroom or living room would make it perfect (there is a closet already but it’s hard to dry clothes there).
