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.
49m² of modern and comfortable floor space.

The space

The apartment is a newly renovated, stylish home with a modern Japanese sensibility. The apartment is located in an up market area of Kyoto with unparalleled access to transport in the city.

The listing is 49m² in total and features one separated bedroom with a single bed, with the other bedroom being in a large combined space with the living room (separated by partition). The living room also features a sofa bed (with additional bedding) plus a large coffee table and other tasteful furniture.

Entertainment options include: a smart-TV with access to English movies and TV series options via Netflix, plus a Bluetooth home theater sound system to enjoy your favorite tunes streamed from your phone. A brand new kitchen with complimentary condiments provides the convenience you are looking for during your stay.

The space is very comfortable for 3 to 4 persons. 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 addition to a mobile WiFi device to ensure high speed internet access in the room and also to ensure the convenience of being connected while you travel around town so you can plan your trip on the go!

Smoking is permitted on the balcony.

The apartment is in a good location close to restaurants and handy to the Shijo subway station. The double bed is very comfy and it is a good size apartment. The manual contained lots of handy info and one of the most comprehensive ones I've seen. The portable wifi is very handy to have when out and about. It was a treat having Netflix to watch. Ryan and the team very helpful and polite with all correspondence.

The host has provided a very detailed manual including all necessary info regarding access, check-in, getting around, local tourist info as well as eatery/restaurant recommendations. The property is only within 5 minutes from the subway station. The room is very new, tidy, spacious and quiet. In fact it beats a normal three or four star hotel room easily in every way. The host is easy to communicate with and responds to all enquiries prompt and gives sound advice when it comes to exploring Kyoto. They also kindly helped us with booking at local restaurant for some wonderful experience of Kyoto Kaiseki Ryori! The host even provided some free Nespresso capsules in the room. The whole process couldn't be more smoother and straightforward. This is certainly the best accommodation we had during our 3-week holiday in Asia. It deserves a five-star recommendation for anyone travelling to Kyoto!!!

The apartment is lovely, very well located, close to pubic transport and lots of nice eating places around. It is very spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. We had a problem when we checked in as one of the beds wasn’t made and the covers were nowhere to be found! It was past 12am before we could all finally go to sleep. The bedding on the double bed also had a very bad smell. Thankfully, Chisa had someone come in the next morning to fix everything and we could finally enjoy the rest of our stay! Thank you!

Chisa's apartment blew our expectations out of the water. The check-in process went extremely smoothly, and everything was perfectly outlined in a comprehensive guide. The amenities were great, and we loved our stay. The location is also very optimal (~5 minute walk away from the metro), and the neighborhood is quiet! Would definitely recommend.
