Very nice place with great hosts!! Thanks you for your kindness and your time, the calligraphy with mami-san, the tour in the geisha district. Even if we stayed just one night, we will definitely remembered it! Romain-san and Aurelie-san

We were first interested with Guest House Pongyi due to its reviews - small modest beautiful place that was given 5stars by most of its guests. So there we go, stayed at Pongyi for two nights - and never wondered that we would get something really special. First, the hosts. Masaki-san and Maru-san treated us just like family. On the...

The hostel is litlle but very nice, only ten guests. The amazing of the stay is the friendly staff, you feel like if you were at home, every night there are activities you can join for free. It was a great experience staying there, I would repeat if I were again in Kanazawa.

We really loved staying at Guest House Pongyi! The house is ancient and with character, is pretty close to the main train station and in a quiet street. Masaki and Maru welcomed us with tips and handy information to help us visiting Kanazawa, and we really appreciated it. We'd love to come back to Kanazawa, a charming town, and we'd...

A wonderful staying in Kanazawa. Masaki has welcomed us in his little pension with kindness and joy, giving us advises on how to enjoy this beautiful town. In the evening we joined him and the other guests at the hot pot party. A truly Japanese experience that made my visit in Japan unique. We stayed in the private room, sleeping...

My family stayed here recently based on the wonderful reviews I read on trip advisor. I agree with pretty much everything that has been said. The staff are kind and friendly, the location is perfect, the area around the guesthouse is lovely. The building itself is fascinating, and it's great to stay in such an old building, but..... Somehow I...
