Really nice little house, comfortable and good lay out. Great check in experience! Valentine was very kind and welcoming! She gave us lots of recommendations. Bring a dvd movie you love, there’s a DVD player and not really any moves. You’ll want something to relax to at night and Japanese tv channels in English are super limited. Also, if you don’t speak much Japanese dining out can be tough here and most places needed reservations on top of that. I would plan your dinners out ahead of time (perhaps with translation help) and not just go walking around last minute. That was the only time I missed not having a concierge or reception help of hotel, but I’m sure Valentine would have helped if we had reached out. Thank you for great stay!
it is like being at home -no cleaning staff waiting for you to leave the room -very friendly introduction to the premises and Kanazawas sights by Valentine -very close to the railwaystation and Katamachi aerea -we shall be there again next year
Dream Accommodation in Kanazawa
Staying at Machiya Aburaya was, amongst all the other wonderful sights & experiences, a highlight of Kanazawa. A traditional, but modernised, Japanese house. Only a 10 minutes walk from Kanazawa station (with excellent directions provided), the property was still within walking distance of all the major attractions. It was comfortable (especially the beds!), spacious, spotless, well-equipped (washing, ironing, cooking) and quiet but more importantly warm and embracing.
And, without giving too much away, a technological surprise.
Robert, thank you so much for staying with us!
Best accomodation for our entire holiday!
Staying at Kanazawa Machiya Aburaya was an amazing experience to soak up a bit of 'old Japan'. We have stayed at other places both in rural parts of Japan and also in the bigger and busier cities - this by far was our favourite. Convenient location, easy to walk anywhere and everywhere (also bikes for no charge if you don't fancy the walk) & Chris was a great host who gave us a lot of hot tips of where to go etc. I will definitely be recommending mates to stay here when they visit Japan in the future. It was great to not be in a 'hotel' situation but rather have your own little retreat - easy to hit the Omiecho markets and bring food pack to have the following morning.
