Great place in Kyoto

  • 5 of 5
English subtitles and instructions on appliances very helpful.  WiFi very strong, all appliances worked as intended / excellent instructions for entry and exit.  The "BOOK" is one of the best I've encountered. Recycling was made easy.

Manager was responsive to emails. Pictures are accurate / full service grocery stores as well as a fish market within walking distance.

Easy to do day trips to Nara and Arashiyama. HINT: walk along the canal to the JR station / not the river if the weather is hot .

Bus day pass (Raku busses included) was handy as well for getting to more remote places like the palace and the botanical gardens. Owner had provided information in the apartment "book".

Such a pleasure to be located in this apartment. Recommend highly and would definitely seek this accommodation again, should the opportunity present itself.

The Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this rental was perfect. It was clean, quiet, and roomy with modern amenities. It was a short walk to the subway and the small side street it is located on is full of wonderful shops. Kiyomizudera Temple was about a 20-minute walk and major shopping is minutes away by subway. In all honesty, I cannot think of one thing I was unhappy with. We looked forward to coming home to this wonderful apartment at the end of sightseeing each day; the atmosphere was very relaxing.

A special mention to Junko Fujina, who went above and beyond to retrieve a journal my niece left behind in a Narita hotel the night we arrived.

If you are still looking for the ideal place to stay while in Kyoto, look no further. This is the perfect place.

Very comfortable and conveniently located.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for 6 nights and we loved it. It was close to a lot of sightseeing spots, and we never waited for more than five minutes to haul a taxi just outside the door. The internet connection worked flawlessly, much better than in any hotel we stayed in. The AC ('one in the sleeping room and one in the living room) was silent and efficient. We appreciate very much the possibility to have a cooler sleeping room. Well thought-out key system for self check-in and impeccable service. We will come again if opportunity knocks!

Just Another Memorable Stay

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at these apartments after a 4 year lapse.
Upon my daughter and son in-law deciding to wed in Kyoto it was an instant decision to book two apartments at Gion Apartments.
My initial expectation on arrival was to expect the property to have some aged deterioration. Wrong! As per our first stay the apartments were clean, comfortable, the furnishings and the able appliances in excellent condition, with the new addition of free WiFi.
If you are seeking an apartment that is quiet and secure, located close to convenient stores, restaurants, transport, ATM cash (Post Office within 100m) and your wanting to immerse and absorb local Japanese life and culture, be close to the CBD, look no further.
To establish your booking and your queries you will find it a pleasure to deal with the owner who is prompt, clear and friendly in his communication. Nothing is a problem.
Enjoy your stay at Gion Apartments; I know we will upon our inevitable return to beautiful Kyoto.

Nice small efficient apartment and wonderful bikes

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our one week stay in Kyoto. It was clean and well equipped and offered everything you need. The apartment is very secure and quiet and yet still in the middle of Kyoto .
We especially loved the bikes we rented from the owner. It is wonderful and so easy to cycle to all the special places.
From start to finish we had a professional and very pleasant contact with the owner.
We definitely will advise friends or our children to stay here.

Nice place to stay

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Kyoto at “ Gion Apartments”. Already the first contact while booking was very pleasant and helpful so were the Information how to find the apartment. The apartment is conveniently located so you can catch a bus, take the subway or just walk to explore Kyoto. You will find a lot of stores and restaurants along Gojo Dori or in the smaller streets around the apartment. Everything was as described. A great place to stay and we will definitely recommend it or choose it the next time staying in Kyoto.
