Great place to stay!!!”
Cosy place to stay. Quiet, clean and near to Kyoto station & bus terminal.
The place is had a homely and tradional feel to it,even had a mini garden inside the house. The owner was very friendly and helped with my broken japanese. Really cosy place to stay if you want to feel local vibe.
I think you can get better value elsewhere.”
Apart from the close proximity to Kyoto Station, I believe you can get better value from other capsules or hostels. The photos shown by the establishment were very well taken. They managed to make the space look much more spacious and elegant than what it is actually.
The guest house is just okay, if you are looking for a traditional japanese guest house. Good for a night stay since its near the station
This guest house really feels like home!!”
I spent four days staying at this hostel. The rooms are clean, bed is comfortable. It has a very comfortable common room where travelers gather, there are also books/notes, you can draw anything you like or just simply write in your impressions. The most attractive spot is wall covered by Tanaka-san's grandmas paintings which makes it very artsy. But above all, this hostel is only 3 minutes away from Kyoto station by walking!! They have only 1 bathroom, but i think it is no big problem in you wake up earlier you dont have to bother yourself waiting for a shower. A really comfortable place to stay!
Super great location, nice interior design, and comfy bed”
Most of my experience is good but there are some down sides: 1) The staff is not always there so you cannot get in or drop ur heavy luguage in the early morning w/o some friendly guest let you in. 2) No air con style heater on the first floor, so it might be a little cold in the winter.
Clean, new guesthouse very close to Kyoto Station”
Very clean guesthouse in traditional Japanese style with shared bathroom and toilet. Place itself is tiny, but room size was spacious enough for two person with luggage. There is a terrace and washing machines on 3rd floor. Room is very simple, you sleep on the floor on futon, there is a built in wardrobe where you can keep your luggage and clothes and small table. Bathroom and toilets on ground floor. Guesthouse is in walking distance from Kyoto Station. I highly recommend this place, if you are looking for decent guesthouse close to Kyoto Station.
Super close to station, restaurants and clean facilities”
I thoroughly enjoyed my 3nights at Tanaka's guesthouse. Location of the accommodation is on point. Laundry service, cooking and shower facilities were perfect. Definitely see myself staying at this place when I'm back in Kyoto!
The guesthouse is very close to Kyoto station and bus terminal. It is very efficient for us and the bed arrangement is new for us so it is a great arrangement. The guesthouse is very clean and the other guests respects the cleanliness and the silence for others.
Cozy, pretty little hostel sandwiched between Kyoto Station and Higashihonganji Temple. For a tight budget, it was clean and convenient.
Very clean and near to everything”
The host was very accommodating and friendly.
perfect place to stay”
is near to the station, everything is good there
Quiet place to stay”
Simple, quiet, clean, affordable, and near kyoto station. Love this hostel. 😊👍🏻
The host is friendly and nice.”
We arrived in Kyoto earlier than expected. The host allowed us to drop our baggage in our room and he settled the process of check in. So we just went out and come back at night time again with everything ready. Highly recommended in the Kyoto Station Area which is very convenient. Few bus stops away from main tourist and shopping point. Walkable distance to the city downtown.
Clean, nice and homely”
The owner of this hostel is a nice young chap. The hostel is decorated in a homely Japanese Buddhism style. I especially like the feature wall on the main hall where he displayed all his grandma’s artwork. Definitely will come back for another stay.
A sense of Japanese Culture at Tanaka Gokurakydou Guest House”
The location is excellent and we just take 10mins walk from Kyoto JR station. Thanks for Mr Tanaka to help us on moving up our heavy luggage. The house is very traditional. Also there is a small nice garden next to the wash room. Having a memorable trip with a sense of Japanese culture ! Sally and Jasper
Poor.. Not recommended.. ”
This guest house is in a small street, little bit confuse when try to find this place.. There will be no staff when you arrived.. The staff expresion not nice and he dare to get in to your room without your permission just to turn off the room heater even you just go out for while to buy a cup noodle.. Will not go back here.. Sorry..
Thank you very much for your review. I apologize for the inconvenience. I live in this hostel at 3rd floor. If I am not in reception, please call me to use phone in front reception. I can come down 30 second. Please do not steal our towel. Please do not enter in reception without our permission. Rental towel is 100 yen. I will make further efforts in providing better service. Tanaka
Bedroom Too small”
Bedroom and bathroom are too small~ only one shower room in ground floor with many peoples to share. Always need to wait for take shower. There is no lift, luckly i stay at ground, cant imaging if i stay at upper floor with my big luggage😓
Truly convenient location. Clean/ Neat / Small but spacious.”
Less than 5 min walk from Kyoto station. Truly convenient! the place is quite newly-renovated. small but well-designed. We stayed one night in the private room for two with shared bathroom. It was really clean and spacious. However, if you travel during winter. It could be terrible. Toilets and bathrooms are located within the outdoor court. It was freezing. We need to finish everything within 10 min. T_T haha. Tanaka-san, the owner of the place, stays in the hostel as well. He is helpful and always try to check my feedback of the stay.
