Recent Kyoto reviews

  • Cosy and beautiful inn

    "My family of four stayed at Koto Inn over three nights and wished we had more time there. As others have said, the inn is beautifully restored and the furnishings (kitchen, bathroom, even washing machine!) are top-notch. What struck me most was the care and pride of the owners in maintaining the inn. Kudos to David and Yoshiko for adding thoughtful and personal touches to the place. We're thankful we got the chance to stay at the inn and experience living in a 124 year-old house. It certainly made the trip extra special for my family. Keep up the good work!!"

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Great Traditional Stay

    "There are a number of positives about this small house. First, it's location is great - just a few blocks from great restaurants and shopping and just a few blocks from easy train and bus options. Next is Rieko who helped us so much with advice and suggestions for restaurants, etc. We also appreciated the huge washer/dryer which we used a lot given how hot it was that week and arriving after a week in Tokyo. The house is immaculately clean and the futons were comfortable. The stairs are steep to the bedroom so it was a bit of a lug to get our heavy suitcases up there but otherwise my tall husband was able to adapt to the short headroom with no problem. The bathroom is large and has a nice big shower. We did appreciate the small sofa upstairs and desk chair as our aging backs did get tired using just the floor seats (its the up and down that we're not used to). All in all, we recommend this property!"
