It is a basic place to put up which you don't expect much. The location to nearest shops and restaurants are walkable, about 10 to 15 minutes walk.

We stayed at Massayuki and Friend's apartment for one month. The apartment is in the perfect location right between northern and southern Higashiyama, near the Sanjo Keihan subway and train lines. You can easily walk to Gion, the Geisha district, within 20 minutes. The apartment has a couple of Family Marts, Lawson, Seven Eleven and a Fresco Supermarket nearby which is very convenient if you need snacks or want to cook your own food. The apartment itself is bright, quiet, relatively spacious, and has a good kitchen setup. The kitchen and bedroom can be separated by an accordion door. There are actually two apartments next to each other. While we booked apartment 201, we were given apartment 202 which is almost identical. One thing that could be improved is the couch. It's a foldable foam mattress which is comfortable to sleep on, but not to sit on. Masayuki was quick to respond when we asked for a rice cooker and a new frying pan (the old Teflon pan was scratched up). They immediatedly came by to provide us with those items. We had some issues with the Internet in the beginning, but they provided us with a mobile router which worked very well. We would definitely stay there again on our next trip to Kyoto.

Very wonderful place to stay. Ideally located in the heart of Kyoto with major atrractions and shopping in walking distance. Quiet location and room enough for the four of us. Masayuki & Friends responded to any of our needs immediatly. Great host, great place. Would highly recommend. We'll be back. THANK YOU!

It was ok globally. We liked the location (near major attractions and metro but far enough to live a real local experience), the apartment is cute. However we did not enjoy: - having only internet connection for 1 device (we nornally use 4). There is a provision for 2 but one did not work and could not be fixed as it was public holidays. - waking up around 5:30 am daily as there is no black out curtains - bathtub is not draining well at all - bed linen is not comfortable

This place was in a superb location, with easy access to all of the main sights in Kyoto. Apartment was large by Japanese standards and could comfortably accommodate 4 adults. Great amenities and the room was very clean as well. I would definitely stay here again when I return to Kyoto.

Just a normal Japanese guy living in Kyoto. I have one apartment which I want to share with people from around the world. The building is a little old but it is very close to the station and main tourist areas of Kyoto such as Pontocho, Gion, Yasaka Shrine, Nanzenji, Kamogawa Riv…
