Shouan provides me with unique experience of traditional Japanese house in Kyoto. The location is convenient and easy to find. There are some convenience store and restaurants within 5-min walk. The bath tube is clean and comfortable. What makes it more amazing is the friendly staff working in the hotel. They hired exchange students from overseas to work there and the staff are so helpful and nice to chat with. But another of the coin is that you may hear the TV sound of the room next to you as the environment is truly quiet. Therefore, it is not recommended for family with children.
