Stayed a night in a Japanese style 2-story-room. It is a 'design room' called KAGIROI. I recomend this room to those who are not keen to go as far as traditional Ryokan but want some Japanse style for experience. Ground floor is Tatami bedroom with Futon(they do the bed making, do not worry) and the basement floor has bath and sitting room(Tatami).
The bed room: It faces the main street 'Karasuma' so the traffic may disturb you.
It is good to chat with friends in this small basment sitting room with bit of rock garden attached.
Bath room:Japanese style bath tub is specially made with wood of aroma and Separate shower booth. This may be plesant to non Japanese guests who wants a bit of Japanese taste but not very traditional, I guess.
Staircase is a bit narrow, and toilet is on the ground floor. So I do not recomend this mesonet type room to somebody who has probrem in walking. You have to go up and down.
I like their restautant. It seems popular. People who do not stay here also reserve seats and come. You can try some local wines and sofisticated type of Kyoto cuisine, I think this place is quite handy to casually yet with high quality enjoy here.
Very close to Go-jyo station(subway), which is just a few station away from Kyoto station. It makes this place a good base for seeing around Kyoto.
