Overview

Higashiyama Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)

***Please note: minimum stay is 30 nights.

For the independent traveler on an extended stay in Kyoto, the Gion Apartments are a perfect alternative to run-of-the-mill hotels in the same price category. Each apartment is outfitted with the same basics that one has for apartment living…a fully stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, and more space than one finds in a typical hotel room. The apartments are furnished with a careful eye to aesthetics as well as comfort.

The location is within a modern residential apartment building located in the southern part of Gion, a historic neighborhood located in the Higashiyama district, in central Kyoto. Gion is recognized as one of the most desirable areas for visitors to stay in. As one of the best known geisha districts in Japan, it has many carefully preserved historic buildings, as well as an abundance of temples and tourist sites within walking distance. The back streets of the Gion area are about as charming and atmospheric as you’ll find…perfect for a romantic evening stroll. Shops, restaurants, and access to trains, buses, and taxis are just steps away. Kyoto’s bustling commercial district (Shijo/Kawaramachi) is just 15 minutes’ walk away. Kyoto Station is 15-20 minutes away by bus, or 10 minutes by taxi.

Provided for your comfort are two twin beds, with an additional single futon available upon request. In addition there is a sofa with coffee table, a small dining table with chairs, fully equipped kitchen, and washer and dryer. Also there is a television as well as a high-speed wireless internet connection.

In terms of size, the apartments are roughly 25 square meters. It’s just right for two persons, but will also work for three persons (the third person sleeping on a futon placed in the living room.)

Guest services are handled by an American/Japanese team, ensuring smooth communication for English-speaking visitors to Kyoto. We strive to provide quick and clear responses during the reservation process, as well as during your stay in Kyoto.

Come stay with us, and you'll find out why we have a high rate of loyal repeaters and long-term guests.

Perfect for a longer stay

  • 5 of 5

Our two families (4 adults, 1 young teen and 1 older teen) stayed for a week in 2 apartments side by side...the apartments were spotlessly clean, comfortable, well stocked, and everything from the washing machine to the rice cooker was labeled in English. The owner thought of everything, including instructions to the grocery store. Good location, close enough to walk to train stations or wander nearby streets.

Woderful Rental, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here after staying 5 days in Tokyo. It was wonderful and relaxing. The washer/dryer is a plus. The location is close/walking distance to quite a few wonderful neighborhoods and temples. Local restaurants are quite good. I would absolutely recommend this place to any friend wanting to stay in Kyoto.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at the Gion Apartments. The apartment is in a quiet area while being accessible to lovely parts of Kyoto. The place is clean, cozy, and in a great location. There are restaurants, stores, and a train station all within a 5 minute walk. We also rented the bikes and rarely left home without our wheels. Communication with the owner was always quick and helpful. We would definitely return, and have already recommended Gion Apartments to friends.

Perfect stay in Kyoto

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic team ensuring smooth check-in and managing all the details to ensure a perfect stay! Apartment - immaculate, comfortable, well equipped, secure and very quiet. Location - excellent, close to public transport options, grocery stores and small shops - plus so many fabulous restaurants just around the corner. Be sure to explore this terrific neighborhood - and remember to visit the local temples at your doorstep. This experience really gives you the feeling of what it's like to be a local! We plan on returning!

We thought Gion Apartment was fabulous for our 11 nights in Kyoto. Spacious and well accommodated for our 1 year old. Not a far walk from a train station, and a short walk to the more tourist-y area of Gion. Nice little local area too with recommendations from Curtis, which were great.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I chose to rent an apartment because we wanted the feeling of living in Kyoto. We were so glad we did. After the first few days of our two week stay, it really began to feel like home. The apartment is located in a great neighborhood with many things to do and see within walking distance. The layout of the apartment is smart and efficient which makes for a very comfortable stay. With a self check-in system the process a breeze. We've already decided that this will be our first choice when we return to Kyoto.
