This was a great place to stay! It was clean and roomy. Within walking distance (about 15 - 20 minutes) of the Kyoto Train station and a much shorter walk to the subway. The host was very helpful. We contacted him regarding a slight problem with the internet and he took care of it immediately.
I would highly recommend this property and if I were to visit Kyoto again, we would stay here for sure!
The place was lovely. Sitting and sleeping on the floor was a new experience and I was a bit hesitant, but it was very comfortable. The host was great. He was available and helped us a lot when we were lost. Came over within 10 minutes when we couldn't figure out how to work the stove. The house is comfortable. It's further than I am used to from the train station but a comfortable 15 minute walk. It's also about 15 minutes to the amazing fish market and shopping street. I would recommend staying here if you like a quiet place to stay that is spacious. The bathroom is a large 2 room. There are grocery markets around the home to buy food for cooking, but they close around 5. Go early. There is only 1 stovetop to cook on in the kitchen, plan accordingly.
The Townhouse was in perfect. The location is truly in the middle between downtown and the Kyoto Staion. The neighborhood was quite but plenty of coffee shops and small restaurants. The 4 bikes where in good working condition. Our host was available to answer questions and very helpful. Great stay in Kyoto.
We had a great stay at Nishimura's townhouse. He was very helpful and quickly responded to any queries we had, for example: regarding opening hours (it was over the new year period).
Having the bikes as a loan was fantastic.
The house is clean and everything you need is provided. The heating worked very well and the shower was great :)
We would defnitely stay here again.
Perfect house, good location, very responsive and timely host.
Everything, including hair dryer (Thank You!!) was provided.
Even provided portable hotspot free of charge, along with freebie maps. Detailed instructions for every necessary appliance in the house was provided in a notebook.
Bicycles were also provided, though in need of a little tune-up.
But for the price, this house was a great deal!!
Very sweet townhouse on a quiet street in Kyoto. The first floor enters onto a small kitchen with refrigerator, sink, microwave, and toaster oven. Off of the entryway in one direction is a sitting room with a large, low Japanese-style table, a TV, and a view of a charming, small outdoor garden. Also a map of Kyoto and some helpful guidebooks. Off the entryway in another direction is a bathroom with a Western-style toilet with heated seat and a small but deep bathtub with a handheld sprayer.
The entryway also has a spiral stairway that leads up to the bedroom. It's a large space that accommodated our 3-person family nicely, with a small closet and dresser for clothes. It helped that there was a small storage area on that floor where we could stash luggage, and that the Japanese-style futon beds rolled up easily for more room during the day.
We were there in winter, so heat was key. The sitting room, bathroom, and bedroom all had heaters. The kitchen/entryway did not, which worked fine for us.
The locations was great, in walking distance to many sites (Kyoto is so walkable!) including ultra-modern Kyoto Station, classic Nishiki Market, the Manga Museum, many temples/shrines, etc. Also close to the 50 bus line to the popular Kinkaku-ji Temple (Golden Pavilion). Plenty of restaurants nearby if you want a solid, tasty meal, and close to several grocery stores (closest is small and 1/2 block away) and the ubiquitous Japanese beverage vending machines.
WARNING: we used the bicycles provided and were thrilled, until we realized we had parked in an illegal area and got them towed. The fine is steep (2,800 Yen), so make sure you research legal bike parking options if you use them, and don't just park where you see lots of other bikes (like we did) because those folks might be risking a short illegal park (especially near Downtown). Luckily the owner was able to retrieve them, a testament to his kindness.
Overall we were happy to step out of Western-style hotels and spend four nights in a real Japanese townhouse. It was comfortable, convenient, and cozy. We would gladly stay there again.
