Just to be able to see how a traditional house is like inside and out is worth the stay at Koiya. Super friendly staff. Genuine japanesse garden inside and genuine architecture. Loved it. If you can get the triple room you are in heaven.
Excellent traditional guest house in Kyoto”
I went there in the middle of December. The house was located among the traditional japan-style houses, which was not so easily found if you went there for the first time. After settling down, the staffs were quite thoughtful and friendly, we can communicate very even my Japanese was poor :). The facilities were well-maintained and laden with history, the living room, kitchen and japan-style backyard were excellent. Help yourself with a cup of hot tea or coffee, sit in the living room watching the stone trails covered with maple leaves, I am sure you can find peace and harmony in your heart.
In the last, I must say the two-days stay was an unforgettable experience in Kyoto. Undoubtedly, I will still choose this guesthouse if I came to Kyoto the next time.
P.S. The Funaoka Osen is just within 10 minutes walk from the guest house. You can warm your body and have a good rest after your one-day adventure in this cultural city.
Friendly staff. Useful advice. Warm feeling.”
Not quite easy to reach but it is very reasonable given the price and quality. Staff are friendly and give us a few recommendations during the stay and let us taste the daily life of a Japanese. Very different experience from staying in hotel.
Excellent view as well but it is not the core point given other advantages.
But the mosquito is quite annoying. Sad we are here in summer but the staff also give us some medic for that :)
Quiet home like space.”
The staff are super nice and the house basically matched the pictures. I could live here. It's a little cold in the winter but they have heaters everywhere. We had two heaters in the room and originally had them both on, but turned off one because it got really hit.
Different types of pastries are served for breakfast, and having a cup of coffee or tea in view of the garden is a pleasant morning experience.
일본 전통가옥 체험”
일본 전통가옥 체험하기에 매우 좋습니다.
마을 전체가 조용하고 평화로워요. 실내도 오래된 일본 가옥 그대로입니다. 집안에 있는 정원이 매우 아름다워서 차 한잔 마시면서 정원을 바라보니 기분이 좋습니다.
스태프도 매우 친절하시고 숙소도 매우 청결합니다.
다만 방음이 조금 덜되어서 옆방에서 시끄럽게하니 다 들립니다. 그리고 밤에 약간 무섭습니다...ㅎㅎㅎ
