Guesthouse Bon offers traditional Japanese accommodation in peaceful surroundings. We have clean, cosy private accommodation in single, double and triple tatami-style rooms, all with air conditioning/heating and shared bathrooms.

We are located in north-west Kyoto, next to Daitoku-Ji Temple, a Zen temple famous for its gardens, and close to the Golden Pavilion (Kinkaku-Ji). A number of other attractions can be found within a few minutes' walk from the guesthouse, including Imamiya Shrine, the longest shopping street in Kyoto, Kitano Tenmangu Shrine (which has a huge flea market every month), Hirano Shrine, Kamigamo Shrine and Funaoka Onsen (one of the most famous public baths in Japan. There are also karaoke bars, convenience stores and 99 yen shops in the immediate vicinity of our property.

We offer a number of reasonably-priced facilities and services, including internet access (WiFi can be used free of charge), western or Japanese breakfast, laundry and bike rental.

Some of our private rooms can be made into dormitories when necessary.

All our rooms are non-smoking but we do have a smoking area.

We can only accept payments in cash.

Check-in: 3-10pm Check-out: 11am
We have no lock-out time or curfew. Free luggage storage available before check-in/after check-out.

We are located a little far from Kyoto station, It takes about 45min by bus and also From Dowtown is 30min by Bus. But Many Bus are running near by here.easy to go where you want go. The area is quiet and very nice local shoping street ,you can see. This guesthouse is very old kyoto style house.
