I traveled with my fiancé and her parents and rented Mee's place for 3- nights. She seemed really nice when we met her during the check-in. The apartment was clean and very spacious. She provided us with towels and linens, travel toothbrushes, and other amenities. Although we were aware that the apartment was dated, there were a few things that we were not expecting.... particular water leaking out of the toilet flush handle whenever you flush the toilet. There was a plastic container placed underneath the handle to catch the dripping water. It's not exactly a welcoming sight. The location of the apartment was great since it's a few blocks from the train station... but be prepared to hear the trains throughout the day and into the late night. We highly recommend earplugs! In addition to that, we were also disappointed to find that the two bedrooms that were advertised was really just one open space. We asked for dividers to separate the room, but Mee said she only had (URL HIDDEN) we hung up blankets as dividers. Hanging up blankets isn't a big deal for us, but we definitely feel like we overpaid for the 3-night stay.

Mee is a wonderful host who has an awesome personality and has great communication! She is also very prompt and attentive. The apartment was clean and very spacious - loved the Japanese-style accommodation! Mee's place was certainly the best stay during our four-city Japan trip! The apartment is also not far from the subway station and several restaurants. There is also a convenience store practically downstairs and a bike rental spot nearby. Would definitely stay at Mee's apartment again!

We really enjoyed our stay. The location is very convenient - only a few minutes from the train station that connects to many of Kyoto's amazing temples, including Tenryuji. The apartment's neighborhood is very interesting, with lots of younger people who attend the university across the street. There are many restaurants and grocery stores nearby, and, if you want to work out, a Gold's Gym. The host was extremely responsive and helpful, and made many recommendations for restaurants. We enjoyed the apartment very much - especially the kitchen, which has very cool retro cabinets and tile. We would stay here again when we visit Kyoto.

Mee is very warm hearted and welcomed us in frond of her apartment when we arrived. Meanwhile she shows her patience when we can't find knife and wifi, though she is busy her sister send knife bowl and wifi to our room. The room itself is traditional Japanese style which indicated no bed but sleeping on the floor, we thought we were ok with it, however there is a train line next to the building and trains make great noise every a while. My parents can not fall asleep with it so eventually I booked another hotel MYSTAYs for them and I myself stayed in the room. Mee understands this and adjust the fare from 3 to 1 person. The room is quite dated and have some little smells. Bedding set is not pure cotton so be caution if you care. There is no stand up wash so I use the kitchen counter to brush tooth. Mee prepare everything you need in the room, very convenient. Overall it's not my best Airbnb experience, I wouldn't recommend to tourists if you requires high taste and quite environment, but if you are a group 3+ and need a big sleeping room, this will be a choice. In the end I pay $129 for one night. Thanks Mee, you are a good host.

This is tiny and comfortable room though it is smaller than our expectation . I think it will be suitable for 3 person but 4 person is also OK.The location is perfect,you can choose JR train, subway by walk just 3 min. And bus stop is very nearby our house.The best is very near to the supermarket named 三元,cheap and tax free. Nice host sisters,will come back again

This property is well located for JR Pass holders as it is minutes from both JR Bus and train line. It is spacious with everything one needs. However this property is older and so the finishes aren't so polished, the bathroom in particular. Please note there is no washing machine at this property. Otherwise we had a lovely stay and would recommend
