    A hidden treasure! Just like coming home ;)

    I cannot say enough about Tsubame-ya, the guest house and staff were exceptional. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend. Personal, genuine welcome, with attentive staff, a real family feel. I felt like I'd been invited to stay in someone's home. We will definitely return to Tsubame-ya x

    Pros: Compact, great value for money, easy walking distance from the tram. Bike rental available. Kitchen facilities immaculate.

    Cons: I don't know that there is anything they could do to improve this fabulous guest house.

    Location: Supermarket 7-11 style within a 3 minute walk, restaurant directly opposite. Fabulous location for trips into Arashiyama and temple hunting!
