The Kawaramachi-sanjo neighbourhood is very lively and there are many restaurants, cafes and shops within a few minutes walk.
The apartment is in between Kawaramachi-dori (street) and Kamogawa River, and it is lovely to take a stroll along the river in the early evening. Just to the north is Oike street with the Kyoto city hall, and to the south past Sanjo street is Shijo, which is Kyoto's best shopping street. Heading west past Kawaramachi street you will enter an area of narrow streets with many small restaurants, cafes, boutiques, etc. Gion (the old Geisha quarter) is only 20 mins on foot to the south-east, and you can really see a lot without having to use public transportation. However the bus stops nearby can also allow you easily traveling to the major sightseeing spots.
The Shiyakusho-mae subway station is 2 mins away, which brings you to Kyoto station (via Karasuma-Oike) in about 15 mins.

This is an awesome house in the middle of Kyoto, it's very convenient to anywhere. The house is clean and warm. I appreciate you can approve my trip in your house. Thank you very much.
I would like to thank Matt and Asuka for being particularly helpful and accommodating. Any question or request that I had was answered immediately.
The apartment itself was great! Spacious, clean and in an excellent location. If you are a light sleeper, this might not be suitable for you as the apartment is located in a busy area. However, for me it wasn't a problem at all!
I recommend this apartment for new as well as old visitors to Kyoto.
Very nice apartment! Good location with a lot of restaurants, shops and beautiful scenes within walking distance. Easy logistics too! Highly recommended : )
Great apartment! Very clean and comfortable. Matt left very detailed instructions and tour suggetions in the apartment. It is really in the heart of the city. This was my 1st international trip and my experience was great. Would love to stay there again.
Matt made us feel very welcome in Kyoto, even though we booked at quite short notice. Matt is very professional and made sure to check that everything was okay with our stay at all times.
The apartment is exactly as it says - cosy! Perfect for a couple travelling in Kyoto. The beds are fantastic - super warm and soft covers are very comfortable and the rest of the house is functional and tidy.
Location is great - right near Gion and a whole lot of nightlife for you to explore. Ground floor means getting luggage in and out isn't an issue. Would have no problems staying there again.
Matts apartment was a great place to stay in Kyoto. It is in an unbeatable location and was a short distance to the Gion, great restaurants and shops. The apartment is large and spacious for two people. Checking in was easy and the provided directions were easy to follow. I would highly recommend this apartment to friends and family. Thank you!
