Lovely modern home
This place is beautiful and quite spacious. Our family of five adults had plenty of room. The kitchen and bathroom were well-equipped, and the owners provided bicycles for each of us. There was construction going on next door when we went, and the owners even provided earplugs! We spent most of our time out of the house, so it wasn't an issue. The home is a short walk from Kyoto station, a major transportation hub. There is also a large shopping mall nearby. The owners were prompt and helpful with communications. All in all, a great stay!
Highly recommmended; all home comforts
We are a family of 4 with a 17 and 18 yo. The place was perfect and very spacious for us. Only 15 minutes easy walk from the station and right near a mall with a great supermarket. As a guest house it is actually a stand alone regular sized house on a Main Street right near Toji Temple. 15 mins to JR station, 2 minutes to the local trains and buses around the corner. So easy to get around. Great communication from staff regarding location and how to access key. When you get inside there is a large foyer so you can leave your shoes etc. they provide courtesy slippers and 4 push bikes (handy). All the creature comforts of home are included even a foot massager! Upstairs was the bedroom area with a double bed and 3 singles. Apparently this hasn't only recently been converted (July 2016). We stayed for 7 days and can only Highly recommend. It is like having your own home. Being on a main road you will hear traffic - but in the scheme of things not too much of an issue. The only negative would be that there is only a small mirror in the bathing area and in the small table. If I ever stayed in Kyoto again I would definitely stay here!
Thank you for staying in An-kona Toji, we are happy you like our facility, thank you for your comment and we will be keep improving, hope to meet you again in Kyoto.
