The apartment is large and comfortable. It is on the seventh floor of a modern apartment building. It has two bedrooms, living room and dining area. It has a well equipped kitchen with everything that you would need. There is a large screen TV, washing machine and balcony. It is only a two minutes walk to Gojo subway station, so you can get anywhere in the city within a short time. It is located between Kyoto station and Shijo (the main shopping area) so it is very convenient. It is a quiet and relaxing place to stay in the city. This is the perfect place for a family.
This is an excellent apartment by Japanese standards. By that I mean that it is a little more compact than western apartments, but it is still a very comfortable place to stay. (After all, you won't be spending much of your waking time here, will you?) The photos don't do it justice - it actually is even better than it appears in the pictures. It even has another couch which can't be seen in the photos.
The locations is great. It is in a quiet street and has good heating and a nice little balcony. And it is clean and well maintained.
It is one subway stop from the main Kyoto station and about a 10 minute walk north to such places as the market, Daimaru etc. A 10 -15 min walk to the east gets you to Philosophers Path then not much further to Gion district.
There are heaps of eateries and bars nearby.
I recommend it.
P.S. there is a cool little wine bar just a few doors to the south if you are into that sort of thing.
Great apartment. Right in the heart of Kyoto. Had a great stay here, had everything you needed in the apartment. Everything worked fine. Clean and tidy when we arrived, owner very helpful. Would definitely use again
We had a pleasant stay in this apartment during our recent trip to Kyoto. Unit consisted of 2 bedrooms with double bed (one of the bedroom was a little small for 2 big size adults), However, there are ample spaces available at the living hall which could sleep another 2/3 adults with tatami or sofa bed.
The plus points are
1) separate toilet and bathroom (consist of shower and bath tub with very good hot/cold water pressure)
2) washing machines
3) full kitchen facilities eg. microwave, stove, fridge etc for simple cooking and a dining area
4) excellent location (just behind Citadine Gojo) with short walking distance to train station; 30mins leisure walk to Kyoto station; 30mins to Teramachi Street, Gion and Nishiki market.
5) Lots of good restaurants around the neighborhood. Very safe , clean and quiet neighborhood
6) Good size apartment with sufficient space for 5 adults without feeling overcrowded
7) Clean linens, clean toilet/bathroom.
The only faults were could think of were....
1) the bath towels provided were so small that it could barely your body (more of a hair towel)
2) The microwave and fridge was dirty; probably overlook by the cleaner.
Overall we were very happy with our stay in this charming little apartment!!
Our stay was excellent. We were a party of 5 and fit comfortably. The wifi was very useful when we didn't know where things were and it was right next to the subway station which was very convenient since we didn't dispose of a car. Hiroshi was very helpful when we first arrived as well as very informative regarding the apartment. Overall, very spacious and lots of clean linen to use.
Our family really enjoyed our 5-day stay at this apartment. This is our first VRBO rental. The apartment was clean with all the amenities we need for comfortable stay. The apartment is only 640 yen away from Kyoto station and downtown Kyoto (if you travelling with family of 4 or 5, its cheaper for taxi then subway). This apartment is ideal if you're traveling with 3 or 4 adults and children.
Dear potential VRBO guest, if you are looking for a location that is convenient to the amazing Kyoto attractions, nicely appointed, and comfortable then this location is perfect match. I was in the difficult situation of having to find an accommodation for my family (wife and 3 years old) and my parents visiting from abroad. We explored hotels but that lacked the family interaction we sought. When we arrived we were met by the owner who was very kind and explained details about the apartment, how to adjust the hot water for the bath and shower room, where the laundry soap was for the washing machine, items in the kitchen, how to use the futon couch in the living room if needed and where extra pillows and blankets are. The bedrooms were clean and the beds comfortable. The kitchen was well appointed as we cooked breakfast and a dinner during our three night stay. For foreign travelers the location is great as the subway is right down the street as well as several bus connections. Also, since the apartment is centrally located we took cabs to many of the temples at less cost than the public transportation. I would say that the apartment is a perfect spot for a family traveling or a couple that wants to have an apartment style experience of living in Kyoto. The 7Eleven has an international ATM that takes cards from all over the world and we were able to walk to “Shijo Karasuma” the famous shopping street must see for souvenir gifts and tastes of Kyoto foods. Amazing experience made all the better thanks to this apartment. We plan on staying again.
