Looking for a beautiful & traditional Japanese accomodation experience?
We loved our stay at Yululu, it was faultless! The location of the house is great for walking around to eat locally at night, having the bikes made cruising around the city super easy and the interiors of the house are clean, traditional and gorgeous. The bath - is a fabulous way to end a day of sightseeing. We had a family of 4, and there was loads of space. Having a kitchen, fridge and laundry meant we could self cater and get laundry easily done. Yululu has a great reference book full of suggested dining and sightseeing options, and the ones we tried were all winners. A really awesome place to stay in a great city!

建文 連
Convenient location and friendly service. There is a shared kitchen to use. Overall it is a convenient accommodation. I am very satisfied with it.
JungJu Oh
The owner is very kind and speaks English very well and does not have any communication problems. The location is also good and the room was good. I go to Kyoto again if I go to the fence.
Hung Chen Liu
Convenient transportation, close to Jin Market and subway station, very suitable for backpackers! However, because this trip is a family trip, the whole tenant shares a bathroom, and the washing time is prolonged. This may be limited by the difficulty of remodeling the old house. It is necessary to consider whether it can be accepted before check-in.

It is hotel where we want to be here in Japan ... It is hotel where we can go with many friends.
판겸 김
Although the caustic rain is excellent and the dormitories, the hotel has a lot of Japanese feel and is luxurious.
수연 김
The atmosphere of the hostel was so good that I felt that it was good to have a daily trip to Japan.
The traffic is convenient and the lighting is good, but the activity space is a bit crowded. Rent a bicycle for 12 hours and 500 yen, and laundry for 200 yen.
Chi Huang
The room was very warm, with quilts and blankets, but the room was not very soundproof. The tatami floor and wooden floors were very Japanese.
