Thanks so much! We lived the area and found it the perfect spot for our stay - waking the streets first thing in the AM or at night is a real treat. We also found great eating destinations near. Y and the apartment had everything we needed. :)

This space was wonderful, and in the best location in Kyoto. We loved staying here to visit, wander Gion, and generally have a peaceful stay in Japan. Would definitely come back!

Great location to stay in Kyoto near Gion. Clear instructions to get to the room where perfect. The room is exactly as described in past reviews. The toilet has a bad odour if the room has been closed all day and height inside the room is a issue for taller guests especially in the shower. Otherwise great spot and room right near plenty of attractions.

Overall the place was pretty good. It's close to so many great sites and shops, great kitchen, working ac, great communication from the hosts, and alright beds. The biggest problem was the bathroom situation, it smelt of rotting wood and mold. There was also a sign warning that if you leaked water downstairs you would be fined $20,000?! We barely showered while we were there out of fear. You would have no idea if anything was leaking if it was. I actually manage a rental back home and I would never put a fine like that on our guests, the faulty plumbing and laziness to address the problem falls on the owners, not the renters. Looking back through the reviews, I see this has been a problem for almost a year and still no resolution? Not worth the risk on the renters end in my opinion.
