This is a nice small guesthouse, it is clean and comfortable. I stayed for 1 week in the women's 4 bed dorm, it was perfectly ok, comfortable beds with curtains and bed lights. There are lockers for your stuff. Downstairs are the showers and a good kitchen and dining room. It is in a quiet area but close to JR...

I reserved an accomodation at this guesthouse and I received a confirmation for a triple room at the main building. We arrived late in the evening, there was a nice girl who welcomed my family and I. She showed us our accomodation, not at the main building, but at an old house which appeared at the first to be even...

Nice neighbourhood, good locationnvery close to JR Nijo station (which is a good base for exploring west of town) and of course a very clean place. Community area was nice. We stayed in the private room which was pretty expensive for a relatively small room (9.000), futons were really too hard. We did find that staff was not really interested...

The place is near the train station and has a quiet neighborhood. It is also very clean. There are two shower rooms. The toilet rooms are separate from the shower rooms but I forgot how many were there. It is better to bring your own toiletries. You can rent a Yukata (after-bath wear) in a very cheap price. Our room...

Amazing guest house in the heart of Kyoto. The welcoming is incredibly warm and the guest house is very stylish and clean. The hosts are very helpful and you can get cooking lessons and bicycles. I strongly recommend this to anyone who wants to have an original experience.

The owners and staff of Roujiya are very welcoming, kind and helpful with tips on where to eat and visit in Kyoto. The location is brilliant - just off Sanjo market, 10 minutes walk from Nijo Castle and station (Nijo-Mae). We opted for the private tatami room which was great, the bathrooms are always clean and we never had to...

My fiancé and I stayed here for three nights. It was clean, friendly and even the bunk rooms were "private" due to the curtains for each bunk. The hostel has specific rules one must follow, but the owners and attendants are super nice and welcoming. We would definitely stay again!

I stayed in the 8 person bunk room. It was ok for comfort. The staff are very friendly and helped with washing and giving some advice about Kyoto. We rented bikes from them, ranging from 500 to 1500 yen for the day. Definitely do this if you want to see the real beauty to Kyoto's back roads. It was quiet...

Our family of 5 stayed for three nights at the Roujiya. It was a terrific experience for us all. Great location just a short bike ride from the city centre and right adjacent to markets. Would return in a heart beat

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
