We had a great time while staying at the Budget Inn at Kyoto.
We did a day trip to Himeji castle, we did abit too much shopping and plenty of walking around.
The information provided was terrific. The room was spacious with plenty of practical storage.
We enjoyed meeting other guests and shared some interesting times.

This was a great find and enabled us to have the Japanese experience in Kyoto than what we had enjoyed in Tokyo and Shiga-kogen.
Thank you for the team, we would come again.

The DVD was great, even though it was all in Japanese.

Dear Budget inn,
Your receptionists are very good. Thats a winner already!
The futons are warm, the place clean and the best part is the amt of info available.
You have done a lot for the sake of ignorant travellers like me and I am truly thankful.
The walking distance from the train station will guarantee good bisiness for yours to come.
Good luck! & thank you again.
