    Perfect spot in Kanazawa”

    I took the tatami room for a couple. The house location is ideal quiet location between Kanazawa station and Omi-cho market and Kanazawa castle. The house has a very cozy feeling with reception area for free drinks and TV. Bathroom and Kitchen areas were very clean and the check-in, check-out was very easy. I will stay there again for my next trip to Kanazawa!

    I stayed here for three nights and really liked this place. It’s clean, there’s a nice kitchen you can use, enough showers, the beds are comfortable, and you can sit in the backyard. Every bed has outlets and the WiFi works fine. The hosts are extremely lovely and helpful. But the cutest of all is the little daughter - one of the sweetest kids I’ve ever met. She’s a sunshine! 💛
