Recent Kyoto reviews

  • Awesome and Highly Recommend

    "I had the honor and priviledge of staying at the Gion House during my month and half stay in Kyoto. The location is excellent on a quiet street yet very close the best of Gion. Near the best Japanese restaurants and gazing at the true Geisha. Easy grocery shopping nearby and local vendors. I had easy access to taxis, bus line and trains. The owner/managers are attentive, knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. Truly the best part of my stay in Kyoto for experiencing the traditional Japanese style house--yet with some modern conveniences. For a true experience--The Gion House is outstanding!"

  • Quiet, clean and wonderful

    "We were travelling in a group of 4, with 2 of us in their 60s and 70s. We wanted to choose a place to stay that is clean and quiet and feelings more "home-like" than normal hotels. Tsumugi Inn was absolutely perfect. It is not a hotel but a temporary home, kept incredibly cosy and neat. The house is in the middle of town and is about 15 minutes on foot from the nearest train stations, tucked away in a quiet, picturesque little lane. Everything in the house is spotlessly clean, all the appliances and amenities are in perfect order. The host, Mr Kuni, is thoughtful and kind, and very experienced receiving overseas guests. This would be a perfect home for a group of friends who enjoy peace and quiet. A few tips I would like to offer: (i) there is no sofa (we sit on big cushions around a low coffee / dining table) and the bathrooms are on a different floor from the bedrooms, so older visitors should take care; (ii) our host keeps the place very neat and tidy with beautiful Japanese adornments around the house, parents should take care with very young children so they do not swallow (or destroy) anything; (iii) if you are unfamiliar with the rubbish recycling system in Japan it is worth asking a few more questions to make sure - we were sometimes quite confused although I think we did manage not to mess things up too badly in the end. Overall, a lovely place to stay - highly recommended!!"

  • Fantastic property!!!

    "The Apple House is the ideal property for experiencing Kyoto and Japanese living. The home is traditional Japanese, cozy, clean, well maintained and located on a winding road that runs along a river. The home provides all your basics and then some for moving right in, without having to buy a lot of extras.The owner provided exceptional customer service from picking us up at the station to removing trash and changing the bedding during our 3 week stay. The buses and trains are convenient, as is access to a 7-11 store with English newspapers and an ATM that provides foreign currency exchange (not readily available in many parts of Japan.) We loved this home and would recommend it to anyone who wants an authentic Japanese living experience."

  • A perfect stay

    "My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) staying here in early January. The place is perfect down a quaint ally. Acco has thought of everything and everything is beautiful and perfect. Even though there was snow when we were there we were kept nice and toasty, unlike at other traditional homes we stayed in during our vacation. Acco was the ultimate host-she helped us make a dinner reservations, gave us directions and met us near the taxi stand. Her English is perfect and she is kind, helpful and knowledgable. We hated to leave. Thanks!!"
