"Great Guesthouse" Gojo Guest House Tip by abarons

Gojo Guest House, Kyoto: 118 reviews and 2 photos


I really enjoyed this guesthouse. I had my hesitations because we couldn't lock the our room door when we left, Japanese style sliding door(we could look it from the inside). But we didn't have any problems with theft. They had tight security within the place. We went on short notice and they have availability. It was only $48 US for two people for a private room. They have showers downstairs with good water pressure and bathrooms down the hall. If you plan to stay awhile there is also a kitchen. It's a long walk or a short cab ride from the station. But it is within walking distance of Kyoto nightlife and shopping. Also, no curfew, which is always nice.
