An excellent choice. Great apt. and location

  • 5 of 5
Great location near Kamo River, Gojo Dori (street) good public transportation and easy hailing of taxis. Quiet street and quiet building with excellent security. Owner has put great thought into the design and furnishing of this apt. Small but really well deigned. Nice patio if weather permits. The owner and local management co. are very quick to answer any questions. The unit has good wireless access but the cellular telephone service is weak (better near main street). 7-11 Store on Gojo street, is open 24 hrs. and has all you will need for food supplies. (7-11) in Japan is totally different from convenience stores in the US) they are top notch in ready made foods, desserts, yogurt etc. It is more like a little food store with other drug store items, paper goods etc. Chinese ramen/fried rice/gyoza shop is 2 doors close. We stumbled into 2 Geiko (in full regalia with aprons and bib to protect their extremely expensive kimonos) having a meal before they went to work! What an experience since they are hard to see.
We have rented apts. in many places in the world and this was absolutely a first-rate experience.

Great Apartment Stay: Accessible, Convenient

  • 5 of 5
It was a fantastic apartment to base our exploration of Kyoto. Just outside of the busy central area, while accessible on foot (18 min walk). Or one stop by train from Kyoto Station. All the key temple and garden attractions are within mins by trains or on foot (highly recommended). Kiyomizu Gojo station is 3 mins walk away. From the station to the Kiyomizu-dera temple complex, you'd have to walk past the road the Gion Apartment is on. The street is off-the main thoroughfares, assuring of peaceful quiet nights.

The Gion Shopping district is 10-mins walk from the apartment. The pubbing and restaurant district is where the Gion is too. Amenities are facilities (drugstore, 7-Eleven, Lawson, Subway and eateries are around the corner.

Great for couples and families.

Fantastic apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent six night in this marvelous apartment. The booking process was friendly and efficient with Curtis (the owner) taking the trouble to follow up when he sensed (correctly) that one of my emails to him and gone astray.
The apartment was exactly as described, fully self contained and quite generous in size by Japanese standards. Everything was immaculately clean and the beds very comfortable. The check in and check out process was flawless.
Location to local restaurants, shops and many of the main attractions of Kyoto could not have been better. Walking from the apartment in the evening to restaurants and to the historic areas of Kyoto was a particular pleasure.
We have already recommended the apartment to several of our friends and would not hesitate to stay there again should we return to Kyoto.

Highly recommeded

  • 5 of 5
You can be confident with the rental process and owner. Everything is personal and yet professionally handled. Very convenient location to stores for supplies (we stayed 10 nights so needed mostly breakfast items and snacks). Walking distance to Kabuki Theater, some temples, and the river area for restaurants. Unique eating establishments on the street the apartment is located. Very close to bus and subway for transportation to local destinations or to the train station for a day trip. Apartment is small but has everything you need. Very clean. We were two women staying there and felt very safe. There is a friendly and helpful local agent to call with answers to any questions. Highly recommended.

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.
