Good location and lots of space

  • 5 of 5
The location is very convenient (5-7 mins walk to 2 train stations). The Machiya is very big, so definitely enough for 4-6 pax. It was well equipped with a full kitchen, washer/dryer and all necessary amenities. The many bathrooms and vanities were great. However, the bathrooms being outside the main Machiya was tricky....just run!

Mimi was very responsive with all my enquiries. There was a slight problem during check-in...which we really couldn't tell if we were told ahead of time! The cleaners couldn't clean the place properly due to some plumbing issues but Mimi was fantastic. She emailed, called and sms-ed to alert us of this issue. We dropped our bags and the cleaners then did a thorough clean up.

I definitely will recommend this Machiya for a family or a group of 4-7 pax. As I write this review, I have already contacted the owner for my next trip.

Comfortable, Traditional and Convenient

  • 5 of 5
What a lovely traditional Japanese Machiya to rent when you stay in Kyoto. We were 7 people and our group included teenagers. The 2 bathrooms are fantastic with plenty of hot water and showering/bathing every morning was a great start to the day. The kitchen has everything you need. The beds both Japanese style and western are comfortable. Renting this house was easy as Mimi is helpful and friendly. The house is centrally located and the station is only a short walk away. A fantastic find!

A lovely week-end in a charming Kyoto Machiya

  • 5 of 5
Spent 2 nights with a group of 7 friends (almost all Japanese residents) and had great time in this charming traditional Machiya. Very spacious, well equiped, good location in a lively neighborhood with easy access to city center, very nice and beautiful little garden, excellent and confortable sleeping arrangements, definitely a place to come back. Was not in charge of organizing this week-end but understand the owner has been very nice and accomodating, just like this home :)

This property is lovely unfortunately though the beautiful contemporary interior is very hard to heat hence we were all very cold but only on the first night. All amenities clean, modern and well equipped. Mimi was a pleasure to deal with and provided us with excellent communication and would definitely stay there again.

Disaster!! Ruined our Kyoto experience

  • 1 of 5
This property is not well managed and we had a lot of trouble. We were put in the wrong (one bedroom) house and when we tried to call there was no one to answer the phone. We had to go and stay in a hotel as we could not all sleep in a one bedroom house. Finally the next day we heard back from the owner and had to pay our own way to the correct house. This was a huge mix up and the owner didn't really seem to care. We were a group of family and friends travelling with a baby and we paid for a baby cot which did not exist and we had absolutely nowhere for our baby to sleep. On top of all this the house was not well heated so we were all freezing. It did look cool, like a traditional Japanese house but hardly worth it. I would advise against staying here and book somewhere with better management. Having lived in Japan for a couple of years, I expected the usual outstanding hospitality, but this place did not have it.

Owner's Response: There was a miscommunication with the person who was in charge of making the reservation(not the person who reviewed), but we did respond to the issue right away (right after their check in time around 4pm) through phone calls/texts/e-mails, and the house was completely ready on their arrival day. It is 100% sure that it was notified right away not the next day. We also refunded the first night fee.
About the baby cot, I was told that the baby does not need an extra bedding so the regular additional fee was not charged. I am aware of the house being cold since it is an old house, but each room has a heater and also extra portable heaters are prepared in the house.

I was asked for full refunds so we communicated through e-mail explaining our points, but unfortunately we couldn't satisfy our guest and received a negative review. We believe that we did everything we could, but I am truly sorry for the disappointment.
