We were 4 in our family travelling (all adults). We got the 4 tatami room. Sleeping on the tatami was fine though by the 3rd night my spouse said her back was hurting. Did not use heat or AC as outside temperature was perfect. Room and bathroom were clean though the balcony was a little dingy. Also you had to...

Staff did minimal to make one's stay a memorable one. Breakfast was poor. Coffee was poured for us, with only 1/3 cup. One time a quarter cup was poured. You have to use taxi to get here, or a healthy walk. Plus: this place is in a neighbourhood and you see locals as you walk to station. Also the cost...

We stayed here in November, Keiko was a fantastic host and the breakfast was a great way to meet fellow travellers. You could get anywhere on the bus, and you were close to the station for Nara (beautiful). If you want a taste of real Japan, try here!

Hennka is a simple no frills Japanese run bed and breakfast accommodation. On the plus side, the bed room is rather big and there is adjoining bathroom and toilet. You also feel that you are living in an authentic Japanese neighbourhood. On the negative side, the place is out of the way and not easily accessible. Twice, the taxis that...

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely guesthouse. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It was a 20 minute walk from the JR line and a 10 minute walk to the bus stop. The place is located in a quiet neighborhood up a hill. You felt like you were out in the countryside and not near a big city....

We stayed in the guest house behind the main property, which is quiet and surrounded by beautiful landscaping. The hosts couldn't have been nicer, and it was really cool staying in a local neighborhood rather than right in the middle of the bustling city. Yes, it's a hike up the hill, but it's worth it, and there's a bus stop...

My partner and I were pleasantly surprised by our stay. It was our first guest house experience and it was awesome. It's family run and you see them throughout your stay. When you first arrive, the wife provides you with a map of Kyoto and helpful tips to get around the city such as bus routes. The room is much...

This was the highlight of our trip to Japan. First, my apologies to the staff at Hennka that it has taken so long for me to write this review. When looking for Ryokan's in Kyoto, this place caught my eye due to its location. It is far enough away from the city center, yet close enough we could be at...

We stay in family room. The room is super clean and nicely decorated. Japanese Futon bed is super comfy. Unbelievable price with breakfast. The couple is the best host I ever met. They tried to help us as much as they can. Very nice view for Kyoto night. The guesthouse is not far from Gion, just JPY1,000 by taxi. Will...
