The ultimate base for exploring Kyoto. Smack bang in the city centre, 400m from the main transport hub of Kyoto (Shijo Subway, Karasuma Hankyu Stations + major bus stops). A short stroll to hundreds of top restaurants/bars and primary shopping.
51m² of modern and comfortable floor space.

The space

The apartment is a newly renovated, stylish modern Japanese apartment with a minimalist design, located in an upmarket area of Kyoto, with unparalleled access to transport in the city.

The listing is 51 m² in total and features one separate bedroom, with the other bedroom being in a large combined space with the living room (separated by partition). The living room also features a large sofa-bed (for additional bedding requirements) plus a coffee table and other tasteful furniture.

Entertainment options include a smart-TV with hundreds of English movie and television series options, plus a bluetooth home theatre sound system including subwoofer, to enjoy your favorite tuned streamed from your phone. A brand new, compact kitchen with complimentary condiments provides the convenience you are looking for during your stay.

The space is very comfortable for four persons, but has enough bedding for 6. Nevertheless, we also highly recommend reservations for couples or solo travelers who would prefer a little breathing space - something which is not always available in cramped Japan.

The room features both fixed wifi in additional to a mobile wifi device to ensure high speed internet access in the room but also to ensure the convenience of being connected you travel around town, so you can plan your trip on the go!

Smoking is permitted on the balcony.

As soon as we made our booking the host made contact and emailed a very detailed manual about the apartment and Kyoto sights. Communication via email was always prompt. The apartment was exactly as described, very clean and plenty big enough for our family of four (5 year old and 2 year old). The location is fantastic, very central and waking distance to restaurants, bars, markets, trains, buses and Gion District. We would definitely recommend to friends and happily stay again if ever back in Kyoyo. Thanks a lot!
