GION APARTMENTS - SLEEK AND MODERN, EXCELLENT LOCATION

Kyoto Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

For the independent traveler to Kyoto looking to live very much as a local, 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.

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.

everything was just perfect !
The location is great, close to the main streets but still very quiet, so you have access to all of the shops and launch point for sightseeing, as well as to the iconic Kiyomizu-dera. The apartment itself is modern, simple and very comfortable, especially after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. You'll get all of the amenities too, including a high-tech bathroom, washer/dryer and speedy WiFi. It is a very comfortable home, with all the western facilities. You can buy and prepare your meals, and eat the food you like if you don't want to eat Japanese food all the time. We will come again for sure ! Highly recommended.

Gion apartment Kyoto

This apartment we stayed at for 5 nights was perfect for us both. It lies at the doorstep of the KiyoMizu-Dera precinct, which is a must-visit for anyone taking a trip there to Kyoto. It is amazing that such a short walk will lead one up to the temple itself, and cutting across it will bring the traveller to the main Gion street. If you're able-bodied, all this is accessible by foot. As for the apartment itself, it is secure, and extremely well-appointed. Everything you could possibly want, is in it. There is even a automated intercom system in the living room to announce that your hot waterbath is ready!

Clean, comfortable apartment in superb location

This is a great apartment in an ideal location. Right off of Gojo-dori, so taxis are a snap to hail. An easy walk to Shijo-dori, so you have access to all of the shops and launch point for sightseeing, as well as to the iconic Kiyomizu-dera. The apartment itself is modern, simple and very comfortable, especially after a long day of sightseeing and shopping. You'll get all of the amenities too, including a high-tech bathroom, washer/dryer and speedy WiFi. We loved that the apartment was in Gion, with temples and picturesque streets so close by. Highly recommend.

Our second stay at the Gion Apartments was as good as the first stay 18 months ago. The apartment is well appointed, comfortable, clean and in a great location in Kyoto. It makes a great base from which to explore by foot as well as being close to train and bus lines. If you want to shop and cook instead of dining out, everything you need is in the kitchen. Beats staying in a hotel any day.

Lovely, Comfortable Apartment in a Great Neighborhood

  • Submitted: Dec 7, 2013

We stayed in the Gion Apartment for 5 nights in November 2013, and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. I would highly recommend it to anyone planning to visit Kyoto. It is well-located in central Kyoto on a quiet street with easy access to major bus lines, just down the hill from the Kiyomizudera Temple. The neighborhood was ideal, offering easy access to some major sights as well as back streets that were fun to explore. I'm only sorry we didn't have longer there. The apartment is very pleasant with comfortable beds, and while it is not large by American standards, it felt like we had plenty of room. It is just as described on the website, clean and beautifully maintained, and the check in procedure was easy and efficient. I particularly enjoyed the soaking tub and found soaking in hot water the perfect way to relax and soothe sore muscles after a day of sight seeing. If we are fortunate enough to return to Kyoto, I would definitely stay there again.
