Overview

Kyoto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

For the independent traveler on an extended stay in Kyoto, the Gion Apartments are a perfect alternative to run-of-the-mill hotels in the same price category. Each apartment is outfitted with the same basics that one has for apartment living…a fully stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, and more space than one finds in a typical hotel room. The apartments are furnished with a careful eye to aesthetics as well as comfort.

Winner of 'Certificate of Excellence 2014''

The location is within a modern residential apartment building located in the southern part of Gion, a historic neighborhood located in the Higashiyama district, in central Kyoto. Gion is recognized as one of the most desirable areas for visitors to stay in. As one of the best known geisha districts in Japan, it has many carefully preserved historic buildings, as well as an abundance of temples and tourist sites within walking distance. The back streets of the Gion area are about as charming and atmospheric as you’ll find…perfect for a romantic evening stroll. Shops, restaurants, and access to trains, buses, and taxis are just steps away. Kyoto’s bustling commercial district (Shijo/Kawaramachi) is just 15 minutes’ walk away. Kyoto Station is 15-20 minutes away by bus, or 10 minutes by taxi.

Provided for your comfort are two twin beds, with an additional single futon available upon request. In addition there is a sofa with coffee table, a small dining table with chairs, fully equipped kitchen, and washer and dryer. Also there is a television as well as a high-speed wireless internet connection.

Several of the units are made available for short-term vacation rental (minimum 5 nights), so this property can be ideal for groups traveling together.

In terms of size, the apartments are roughly 25 square meters. It’s just right for two persons, but will also work for three persons (the third person sleeping on a futon placed in the living room.)

Guest services are handled by an American/Japanese team, ensuring smooth communication for English-speaking visitors to Kyoto. We strive to provide quick and clear responses during the reservation process, as well as during your stay in Kyoto.

Come stay with us, and you'll find out why we have a high rate of loyal repeaters and long-term guests.

Very comfortable apartment. We found the apartment to be spotlessly clean, well appointed and very quiet, much appreciated after having been in Tokyo for a week. As previously mentioned in another review, the photos and description are perfectly accurate, and the self checkin works very well.
Being December it was quite cool - the heating works well and the down comforters were lovely and cozy.
We had no problems at all and found the details of grocery stores, etc in the information book to be very helpful. There are a number of little restaurants on Gojo and we particularly liked the Udon Sanshiki, where we ate on a cold rainy night. Very welcoming, average prices and decidedly above average food and attention to detail. A young chef who deserves to do well.
I would love to have the opportunity to stay here again.

An Excellent choice, Great location

  • 5 of 5
Very completely supplied with excellent instructions. Quiet street and quiet and very secure building. Owner and local management co. quick to respond. Good wireless access. The owner has put great thought into the design and furnishings of the apt. and we enjoyed the effort. Location is great, close to public transportation, easy hailing of taxis and in an area with diversity of stores and residences. Wonderful area to walk to get the feel of how people live in Kyoto. Going west will take you to the Kamo river, from there you have many choices to explore the shopping, restaurants, Gion etc. NE will give you many temples shrines. We have rented apartments in many places in the world and this is absolutely a first-rate experience, akin to having close designer friends letting you stay in their place.

Fantastic Base to Explore Kyoto's Heritage & Culture

Fantastic Base to Explore Kyoto's Heritage & Culture
  • 5 of 5
If you really want to explore Kyoto, a couple of days isn't enough. You need at least five days or more, to really soak in the history, the heritage and the culture. For extended stays of a week or more, the Gion Apartment is the best bet for your stay. Five minutes walk to the Kiyomizu Gion MRT station (with lift access) and smack in between the station and the key attraction of Kyoto, the Kiyomizu-Dera temple complex.

From the Gion Apartment, you'd make your many walks and trips to the heritage areas, the Pubbing streets and the Gion shopping district. It is walkable from Kyoto main station (20mins, scenic walk along the river).

The apartment had everything you need in a one-bedroom-one living-dining room setup. Beds, futons, induction cooker, family-sized fridge, microwave, washer-dryer, shower and bath. It is clean, well-maintained and safe (with 24-hours security access) without the hassle of a registration-desk for check in. Everyting is via the phone and the internet.

The good thing about staying at Gion apartment is the freedom and flexibility one gets when staying in an apartment. And it's so convenient to stay in an apartment with everything provided for. I appreciate especially the washing machine as I travel light and I need to launder my clothing. Besides, one gets to communicate personally with Curtis and he has been great. He was most prompt in handling all my mails and requests.

Great location in Kyoto

  • 5 of 5
After leaving Tokyo, we traveled to Kyoto to stay for a week in this apartment. The photos and description are accurate - safe, clean, and everything you need to enjoy your time in Kyoto. The location was perfect as there was a subway and bus stop within short walking distance - we hopped on the subway many times to get to temples and to go out to dinner (there are restaurants near apartment however one stop away is the area with many bars and restaurants - which is nice because the apartment is in a quieter location). We used cab from Kyoto station upon arrival which worked out perfect, but not necessary again (although available easily one block away). The self checkin and checkout was seamless and communication prior to arrival was all good. I love VRBO and have had many great experiences - this was another one to add to that list.

FABULOUS place to stay

  • 5 of 5
we had 4 1/2 days in Kyoto and i can not imagine a more outstanding place to stay than the gion apt. It had everything in a very efficient apartment. It was clean, beautiful and so incredibly convenient to everything one could want. We rented bikes and could keep them there. We made breakfast each morning in our apt. We loved every minute of it and felt like it was our home away from home. we would HIGHLY recommend this VRBO as THE place to stay in Kyoto!

Perfect location, lovely little apartment, everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5
When we travel we try to rent apartments and this one was recommended to us by friends from Australia. It was ideally situated. It's tiny, but, as it turns out it's the same size as the first apartment that my wife and I lived in 40 years ago, so, we were quite comfortable. Dishes, pots and pans, washing machine, steps to the metro or buses, supermarket nearby, restaurants. From here we could either walk anywhere we wanted or travel easily by bus or metro. Two weeks wasn't enough. What more could one want (more time).
