A long bus ride from Kyoto Station

Pros: The proprietors were lovely and super helpful. Went out of their way to answer questions. The area in NW Kyoto is a long (35-50 minute?) bus ride from Kyoto station, but once you are out there, there are several temples within walking distance. We visited Ninanji, Roanji, and Kinkakuji all within walking distance. We are big walkers so it might be far for some (1-2 kilos between?), but probably an easy cab ride. Good internet. Cons: There was a bit of a "hostel" feel to this hotel. I can't put a finger on it... the low ceilings, the plywood doors, the shared bathroom. Not sure. And, it is kind of far from Kyoto station. I speak Japanese but I can imagine it might be tricky if I hadn't.

Amazing Hosts!

I was looking for a quick, reasonable, no frills place to stay so I could explore Arashiyama when I found LeBlanc. The rooms aren't fancy but they're clean and comfortable, which was exactly what I needed. The best part about my stay? The host and hostess were completely warm, friendly and wonderful making me feel like home. If you're from the US, it was as close to a New England B&B as you could get! I'd highly recommend and will be back on future business trips when I have a large block of time off. ™
