Kyoto apartment description

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.

Winner of 'Certificate of Excellence 2014''

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.

Several of the units are made available for short-term vacation rental (minimum 5 nights), so this property can be ideal for groups traveling together.

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.
