A COZY PLACE FOR 6 WITH GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We, 2 adults, 2 seniors and 2 kids, stayed comfortably in this 2-level townhome for 7 nights. The seniors slept in the bedroom equipped with normal beds, as it is easier for them to get up and down. And this bedroom was nice and quiet for their sleep. The rest of us enjoyed ourselves sleeping on the tatamis. All beds are very comfortable. My only complaints are the comforter is a bit too short than I would like and the bedroom upstairs we have is a bit bright at night as it faces the street with lights and traffic can be noisy for someone having hard time to fall in deep sleep as we were adjusting for the jet lags. Adding some heavy dark curtains should do the fix. Because of the jet lags, We hit the tourist spots every day as early as 6am, thanks for this place <5min walking distance from the subway so we avoided the commuters as well as the crowds in the tourist area. We then came back to the house for lunch and nap – two supermarkets steps away to buy fresh Sushi, Temporas and all the yummy food you can think of. We then in late afternoon explored the nearby area – like the Tofukuji, Fushimi-Inari and Sanjusangandu. All of these places are our favorites. Kitchen is well equipped considering the size of the space. The bathroom with the hot tub is amazing! It got many smart designs. The kids soaked there every day after dinner to relax, while I contemplated around the little garden. Every time after visiting Kyoto, I wondered if we Canadian really need so much space in our house. Worth mentioning, the phone provided in this house is actually a cell phone. Had we known that, we would have only ordered one instead of two from a rental company. Overall, all 6 of us were very happy about this place. We will definitely recommend it to everyone, and will come back when we visit Kyoto next time.

LOST IN TRANSLATION

  • 5 of 5
A really great place to stay! Since it's right by Kyoto Station, it's within walking distance or a short bus or train ride to famous temples and shrines like Tofukuji and Kiyomizu teru. There's also lots of shops and a supermarket nearby so we, being the adventurous travelers we are, bought a ton of Japanese food, still don't know what some of it was but it tasted great! There were four of us so we had a blast cooking the food in the mini-kitchen and eating in the Japanese style room. The western style beds were comfy but the futons were just as comfortable! Overall, it's a really clean, comfortable, and relaxing place to stay.

JUST PERFECT :)

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful, beautiful house; nice Hiro. I liked both. :)
It is a traditional house, fully renovated, charming and comfi. It was even better than we expected.
The neighborhood is nice and is easy to move by train or by bus.
We had a really good time there. It was a good thing to be in Kyoto during Gion Matsuri, but the weather is really hot and humid in summer...

Owner's Response: I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay here. Gion Matsuri is the most famous festival in Kyoto, so you chose one of the best times to visit! I hope you were able to cool down by trying some of the summer treats like flavored shaved ice that they sell during the festivities. I’m also glad to hear you were able to find your way around the city. It really is a lot easier than most people think and our machiya’s convenient location makes it that much easier. I look forward to your next visit. Take care and have a great winter holiday!

A NICE PLACE TO STAY IN KYOTO

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for almost a week with my husband and it was a great place. We've been living in Tokyo for the past 10 years, so we try to go to Kyoto at least once a year. This is the second time that we've stayed in a machiya so we knew what to expect. It was really clean and the owner was incredibly accomodating and ensured that we enjoyed our stay. Compared to the previous machiya we stayed at, this place was a lot more affordable and in a really accessible location close to Tofukuji and Kyoto Station. We plan on staying here again next year.

Owner's Response: It was real pleasure to meet you and your husband and hear about your previous visits to Kyoto. I often hear Tokyoites comment on how they love the traditional and laid back atmosphere of Kyoto over the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. I look forward to seeing you both next year during your annual Kyoto vacation! Please feel free to let me know if you would like to make any special arrangements beforehand or need help in planning anything.

HAPPY TRAVELS

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed staying at this machiya and would recommend it for families, friends and couples staying in Kyoto. The place was very clean, well kept and perfect for sightseeing since it was just a short bus ride to Kiyomizu tera and Fushimi Inari Taishi. There are also supermarkets and a lot of local shops to browse nearby. The owner was really helpful in organizing sightseeing arrangements and ensuring we were happy during our stay. Overall, I'm pleased to report that it's a cozy and relaxing place to stay.
