Fantastic Stay in Inexpensive Machine

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for four nights at K's Villa's Matsumi-An. We had been looking for a "machiya" (traditional Kyoto town-house), but most were out of our league, financially. Matsumi-An was not only affordable, but a beautiful lodging, with an interior garden dividing it from another apartment in the rear. Though we feared it might be very cold because we were visiting in January, it was very well appointed with heat in the living room, bedroom, and even bathroom (not a given in Japan!). Moreover, the size was clearly adequate for a family of four (and much larger than what one could get for a comparable price at a Japanese hotel.)

We also appreciated the excellent service from Ks Villa. They made accessing Matsumi-an a breeze, allowed us to send our luggage directly from the airport, and even arranged for a cleaning mid-way during our stay.

Matsumi-an was a relatively short walk from Kyoto Station (closer to 10 minutes than the 15 minutes they quote), and quite convenient to older tourist sites in eastern Kyoto such as Sanjuusangendo and Higashiyama. Though we didn't take advantage of the bicycles left out front, they would be a great to use in warmer weather.

We hope to stay here every time we visit Kyoto!

First experience of traditional house in tranquil neighbourhood

  • 4 of 5

Pretty hassle free Chk in ; took a while to find the villa but everything in villa is clean n modern with touch of traditional decor - well maintain house ; friendly staffs though it's 15-20 mins walk from Kyoto station .. would be good if there's housekeeping for the villa . It's a good fit for folks who want upgraded ryokan stay with modern facilities; decent quality of tea n coffee beans with grinder ; pour over brewing provided for those who needs cuppa / caffeine fix daily and looking for alternatives lodging instead of hotel. Would stay there when I pop by Kyoto again !

Amazing stay at Kyoto

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't think a better place for our stay at Kyoto. A traditional japanese house with all kind of modern facilities and amenities. All is as described in pictures.

The house was very clean, owner's indications and information were great and location was also fine, 10-15 minutes walking to Kyoto main station and 3 minutes walking to nearest subway station, in a very quiet neighborhood.

Me and my girlfriend like to travel around the world and this is one of the best places we've ever stayed.

Recommended stay at a beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

Our group of four had a great stay at this Kyoto house. The only issue was the instructions had a "right" turn instead of a "left" at one point so we ended up in the wrong alley. A lady was nice enough to point us in the right direction. I hope the managers will revise their instructions. I'd definitely recommend taking a taxi instead of trying to drag your luggage if you're coming from the Kyoto station.

Other than the minor hiccup at the beginning, the rest of the stay was beautiful. The setting is quiet and very neat. The decorations were very nice touches to a modern yet traditional feel. The property is extremely well maintained. We would definitely come back for another visit in the future!
