homely and traditional accommodation! adorable host!
They kick you out 11am-4pm every day!
The teen girl who worked the counter was hugely helpful. The location was central to Geisha district. The place was very pretty.
The walls of the room are made of rice paper so don't expect any privacy. Although you have you own room it feels like you are in one room with everybody as you can hear their every move. If you have considerate neighbours it is kind of ok but the first two nights we had horrible neighbours shouting till late night and doing their spanking games (maybe interesting for someone who likes to listen to this kinda stuff...).
Very friendly and helpful staff. Room bigger than the usual hotel room in Japan. Amazing location right in the center! Lot of restaurants and shops close by.

A taste of traditional Japanese house
It's a traditional Japanese house so you can hear clearly the conversation from other rooms.
Location is excellent, in Gion, very near to the bus stops. You get to experience a traditional Japanese house.
TOTALLY OVERPRICED! No cleaning, you pay for renting small towels, bad lightning in the rooms, everything is a bit worn-out and seedy, friendly staff, but they are only two, and they speak very poor English. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO STAY AT THE PREMISES BETWEEN 11 AM AND 16 PM!!!They say that it is normal in Japan (no it's not), and that it is due to "cleaning". Well, there was a big, gooey, brown stain of some substance in the common fridge when we arrived, and when we left three days later, it was still there. I wont call the place dirty per se, but neglected and with stained walls - and a shower curtain with mold!!! You also have to make your own bed, and you are asked to unmake it when leaving (we didn't). The duves smelled, by the way. We paid 20,000 yen a night for a private room with bath for three - the same we paid for an APA hotel with all facilities and amenities in Hiroshima. Just don't!
Good location, friendly staff.
The location is great. 八坂神社, 祗園商店街 and 茶寮 within 10 min walk.
The staff was great. They were super friendly and did everything they could. The room was also very clean. I'm sure it's one of the best options in Mirador Mansion.
