A Home Away From Home

Guesthouse KYOTO COMPASS was founded in 2014 to serve as a signpost for travelers like a “compass”.
We took a traditional Kyoto house (Machiya), with it’s 100 years of history, and turned it into this guesthouse.
It takes 15 minutes from Kyoto station by bus.
We are surrounded by not only sightseeing spots but also warm local atmosphere, public bath houses and a shopping street.
You can travel like the local people live.
