BEAUTIFULLY RENOVATED HOUSE IN CENTRAL KYOTO!! 2-STOPS AWAY FROM KYOTO STATION!

Kyoto House Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom + Den, Living Room, Well-equipped Kitchen, Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The renovation of Senraku House located in downtown Kyoto was completed in Spring 2011. Now, modern convenience has been added to its history of the house.

This small Traditional Japanese House is on a quiet lane-way in a very convenient area in Kyoto: 24HR convenience stores, 24HR supermarket, cafés, bakeries, IZAKAYA, restaurants, banks, department-stores, drug stores, a rent-a-cycle (bicycle-rental) shop, a rent-a-car office, Sento (a type of traditional Japanese communal bath house), hospital, and everything you need are close by.

Nijo Castle, Nishiki Market, and Shinkyogoku Shopping Arcade are within a short walking distance, and from the train station which is less than 10 minute walk away from the house, you can visit and see numerous historic sites in Kyoto: such as Kinkakuji (Golden Pavillion), Heian Shrine, Ginkaku-ji, Sanjusangendo, Kiyomizu Temple, Gion Geisha District, Yasaka Shrine, and Arashiyama.

Location! Location! Location!: Senraku House is located in Central Kyoto: Visiting beautiful historic sites in Kyoto is very easy from the house. You can even take a day trip to Nara, another old capital of Japan, to Ohara, an old nature reserved area with temples, hot springs and unique small shops, and to other cities like Osaka, Kobe from its prime location of Sen-Raku House.

Gion Festival: During the Gion Festival in July, one of the three major festivals of Japan, the House becomes part of the festivities. One of the prime locations of the Gion Festival is only a minute away.

Living in Kyoto!, not Visiting Kyoto!!: The house has well-appointed kitchen, laundry machine, high-speed internet connection with laptop computer, and 32 inch flat screen TV; so you can experience “Living in Kyoto” , not “Visiting Kyoto” at Sen-Raku House.

Spotless, fully featured and great location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 13, 2014
  • Stayed: Mar 2014
We loved the location as it is just a few blocks down from the center, but the street itself is quiet and atmospheric. The house itself felt like it was brand new, everything was spotless and well maintained. There were helpful annotated maps and guides and the owner dropped by to check if we needed anything. If you want a modern Japanese-style apartment at a great location in Kyoto, this will be hard to beat. We stayed for a week and did some cooking, washed our clothes with the giant washer/dryer that works very well and generally had no problems at all. Professional and pleasant. When we come back to Japan, I would come back here without a second thought.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. As you stated Senraku is spotless, fully featured and a great location. That is what we want all our guest to experience every time they stay at Senraku. We have done everything imaginable to make all our guest stay trouble free; so that one can experience the true beauty of what Kyoto has to offer. We look forward to seeing you again.

Perfect

The property is well located, well appointed, comfortable and neat as a pin. We could not have asked for more in seeking a tatami mat accommodation. We will seek to stay there again when we return to Kyoto.

Owner's Response: Thank you for a to-the-point review. A lot of effort goes into maintaining Senraku in tip-top-shape or as you put it “neat as a pin”, we do take pride in providing a neat, clean, and well-appointed house that combines the traditional Japanese home with many of the western comforts. Thank-you again for choosing Senraku for your Kyoto stay, and we hope to see you again.

Senraku House - excellent accomodation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 5, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
Senraku house was the perfect location for us. It is close to a 24-hr grocery store, ATM and within walking distance of public transportation, the Nishiki market and the Daimaru department store. We really appreciated the map of Kyoto and the welcome letter that awaited us upon our arrival at the house. The kitchen was well-equipped and the washer/dryer was definitely an added bonus. It was like our home away from home. We could not have been more pleased with this accommodation.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the excellent review. It is always our hope that Senraku house is the home away from home for all of our guests. We are delighted that you had a wonderful time in Kyoto. Please think of Senraku house as your home in Kyoto. Looking forward to your return visit.

Convenient and relaxing

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: May 12, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
This place was the perfect relaxing place to stay in Kyoto after the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. It is very convenient to almost everything Kyoto has to offer. There is a full super-market just down the street and small wonderful restaurants just outside the door on the main street.

We loved that it is off a secluded private alleyway, yet you can catch a taxi if need be by just walking about 20 steps to the main street.

It has all the modern conveniences, yet gives the feeling of living in a very old Japanese style home. Our hosts thoughtfully provided all instructions in English on cards placed throughout the house and gave us a map in English with various points of interest already marked. It was exactly what we needed. We walked to most of the shrines and parks we visited, although the subway is very close by and taxis are plentiful. We didn't get our fill of Kyoto and will need to go back.

This was a great place to stay while in Kyoto. We loved it and I highly recommend it.
Owner's Response: Thank you for a heartfelt review of your stay at Senraku house. We are so delighted that you were able to explore Kyoto in a variety of different ways, and experience the real Kyoto. We are pleased that you were able to feel the traditional elements along with the modern conveniences that are built into Senraku house. We hope to see you back one day. At that time there will be new shower room in the house. We have scheduled the renovation to start in mid-June. Thank-you once again for a wonderful review.
