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.

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).

We stayed for 8 nights. The location was excellent and it was the perfect place for us to stay with our 3 year old in Kyoto. The small condo had everything we needed and was very clean and generally well thought out. My only slight recommendation is that it would have been nice to have had some low lighting in the bedroom area so we would not disturb our daughter sleeping in the living room area. Having a kitchen helped us to keep costs down and we bought food most days from the 7 eleven around the corner (not at all like 7 Elevens in UK!). The lift was appreciated as we had a pram. We would definitely stay there again next time we are in Kyoto and have already recommended it to many of our friends here in KL.

excllent !

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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!
