Professional Review of the Tour Club Kyoto

Lonely Planet

Run by a charming and informative young couple, this clean, well-maintenanced guesthouse is a favourite of many foreign visitors. Facilities include internet access, bicycle rentals, laundry, wireless LAN and free tea and coffee. Most private rooms have private bath and toilet, and there is a specious quad for families. This is probably the best choice in this price bracket.
