            Complete with amenities”

            The place is 1km away from Kyoto station. Can we reached by walking if you don’t have much carry ons. It is neat and clean, complete with all necessary amenities and more. Aside from the usual basic toiletries, it has gas stove and kettle to boil water, refrigerator, microwave and even washing machine which are free for you to use. Although the washing machine does not have dryer, the bathroom has. Thus, you can dry your clothes in the bathroom. There’s also small tv in the bathroom for you to enjoy while soaking in the small bathtub. Good that they separated the bathroom, toilet and sink, so diff people can use diff ones simultaneously, not having to wait on each other. There’s a computer which i think can serve as tv as well. There’s also a table with 2 chairs so we had our dinner and breakfast take outs at the nearby 7-11 and mini-stop stores. Staff are friendly although they can give you wrong direction. I checked google for Inari and I didn’t know that I should have chosen Fukushima Inari. So google map gave a transit instruction that was going to Inari Shrine (different from where I intended to go) and as i was checking which bus stand to wait for the bus, i asked a person who was also waiting for the bus if this was the right direction going to the Inari place (showing her the picture of the thousand Torida gates), she shared her said and made a sign that meant the place the bus is going is far from the place I wanted to go. So not sure how to find my way, I went in to the reception and ask the receptionist, a guy, and I asked him the same question showing him the picture of the thousand Torii gates. He said yes that’s the way. And so i followed him thinking he should know better since he is in the tourism business being the hotel receptionist. After mins of taking the bus, as i was reviewing where we’re headed, I realized that the Inari Shrine and Fukushima Inari are different and they are indeed in opposite direction and so we had to get dow

            Awesome stay with good facilities!”

            It's the most convenient stay during our trip to Japan, the access is very convenient by bus from Kyoto station and the bus stop is just in front of the place, the room is spacious, very clean and the facilities are fully packed specially the cloth dryer in the bathroom. The minus thing is we need to pay some extra money to lend some cooking tools which is needed for us Indonesian to cook "Indomie" :p and this cooking tool is not available at the late night so it won't be available if you arrived late to the place. But overall is ok and value for money, for sure i will come back when i visit to Kyoto again!

            Excellence location and value for money ”

            Love this guesthouse, the minus point is only the size of the room but it is to be expected since we are in japan. All the facilities really useful especially the washing machine and dryer inside the bathroom. The location is excellence because it is near to Kyoto station and the bus from Kyoto station stop right in front of the guesthouse while the bus stop to Kyoto station just located opposite of it. On top of that there are many convenient store, restaurant and vending machine near this guesthouse including 7E just opposite of it. Overall value for money and will definitely stay here again.

            Convenient location & comfortable stay”

            We stayed for 9 days at Parkside Umekoji Guesthouse. The location was very convenient for places we wanted to visit and for travel to and from the Kyoto Station. Several buses stop right outside the Guesthouse or across the road or around the corner on Omiya Dori. We were able to reach places all over Kyoto in a single bus trip or just once or twice we had to take 2 buses. The Guesthouse was helpful with emails before we arrived and helpful while we were there. The room was as described on the website and was clean & comfortable. There was a small fridge/freezer, microwave cooker, washing machine, sink and gas cooktop. Our room was on the 3rd floor looking onto Shichiji Dori, a major road, but we heard virtually no traffic noise because of the double-glazing. Air-conditioning in the room worked fine and there was always hot water for baths & showers . The toilet was small but clean and had the usual "control panel" which we didn't touch ! Suitcase racks would be very useful.

            The best guesthouse I've ever visited!”

            Parkside Umekoji is really a comfortable place to stay in Kyoto. I think, it's not suitable to call it guesthouse. It's more like a private apartment or hotel. The place offers more than a guesthouse does. I highly recommend this place for those who want to visit Kyoto. Easily accessible from Kyoto station. Just take a bus no. 205 from gate B3 in Kyoto station, and then get off at Nanajo Omiya station. The guesthouse is just right behind the bus stop.
