Lovely, traditional-style Kyoto guesthouse”
PROS: - extremely friendly, helpful, multilingual, efficient staff/owner (She was so sweet!) - gorgeous house - nice facilities - excellent location - less than 10 mins’ walk to Gion area CONS: - glass-panelled sliding doors on single room allowed in light from sensor lights every time another guest walked around the house - other guests somewhat disregarded the nighttime noise reduction guidelines put in place by the owner Overall, I had a lovely stay at Kyoto Guesthouse Lantern in Gion, and would gladly suggest it to anyone! 😊

Overall it's very clean, but as its typical Japanese old style house, quite noisy if your room is closer to public area. However, location is super convenient, can reach some landmarks and Kyoto center by walking.

Alright (list of pros and cons)”
PROS - The best thing about this place is it is so convenient. You walk to Yasuka temple, kiyomizu-dera, maruyama park (one of Kyoto's biggest gardens) and you can walk through many "alleys" (instead of the main street) for traditional-looking shops, most beautiful at night where you can even spot geishas and maikos. It's close to Gion, which is bustling with many shops, restaurants and temples plus a subway station. And it's a 3 minute walk from the bus stop.There's a list of places you can go with helpful bus info too, and a map of good restaurants around (including Okutan for the tofu dishes and Tsujiri main store!). - the lounge is pretty nice - there's books and a big flat screen TV people sometimes watch the news or sports on, and it's very conducive to meeting people (I met tons!) BUT it closes at 11pm and you get kicked out by the manager who murmurs "sorry for the inconvenience" with an annoyed, sarcastic expression. (more on him later) CONS - Dirty. The first bed I slept on was in the girl's room (8 people), and had blood stains on it, gross lol. Nothing I can't handle, I just spread the sheets on top of it. There was dust and garbage in the gap between my bunk bed and the wall (a pretty big gap, dunno why). And this is not their fault, but people's clothes and bags littered everywhere on the floor. No lockers of course, and not really much space to put your luggage in the rooms. The second bed I slept on was in the mixed dorm (12 people I think) and it was cleaner but a lot noisier. They also forgot to give me sheets so I had to ask for it. Washrooms are generally alright, the fan is super dusty and gross to look at and there's hair in it sometimes. I mean, 3 showers for the entire place is not very many. Sometimes I'd have to wait but it's not so bad. They also have hairdryers, yay, but you can use them only up till 11pm due to the thin walls. I had to use it once at midnight but because of the rule I headed to bed with wet hair and, surpri

Worst place ever terrible host ”
We came in early to leave our baggages. The location is not easy to find. When we arrive the host asked us to come back later. when we arrive around 10pm , he voiced with sarcasm and demand extra money for expecting host to await for check in which is inappropriate and stated that it is the house rules and it is in the website. THe worst case is I have arranged for my SIM card to be sent to this guest house and the host has denied having receiving it and upon checking with the SIM operator , the host has received and tell lies . Do not stay in this FAKE HOST GUEST HOUSE. the house rules is also very unfriendly , if you wanna take a nap in the afternoon, the house rules stated the cleaning session is the whole day session after noon hence you are only using the place for 6 hours. This is the worst ryokan guesthouse I have ever stayed in . FAKE SMILE indeed.

Nice Guesthouse in Gion”
The location is very good. With the bus 206 it is not far from Kyoto Station. And you do not have to walk far for the many things to see in Gion. The place is nice an thr owner friendly and helpful. The only thing is that the curtains in front of the beds could be thicker to create more privacy. And the coffee and tea is not for free.

The hotel is very near bus stop. It's easy to travel around the city. The environment is very clean and it's Japanese style house. I like the lovely front yard in the house. The space for each person is big and comfortable. The owner is very patient and kind. He tried his best to help me and offered me a lot information. It's really nice to meet the owner and staffs. It's the place that I want to back and to recommend friends.

This is a great place to stay in Kyoto. The price is decent, and the staff is very friendly. The room is clean and very traditional. The wall is quite thin so if you plan to be loud, then it is not a good place to be. I love staying here with my family. It is really peaceful.
