Thank you for your co-operation★
What a great place to stay! We had no problems finding the apartment and getting into it with j+d's instructions. We loved the view and light, their deep bath tub, and the futons couldn't have been more comfortable. I mean seriously so comfy! Would highly recommend this place as it is very convenient as well! Thanks again Jackie and dia!
Le logement correspond au descriptif. Il est propre, fonctionnel et très bien situé (au Nord de Gion). Il donne sur la rue mais il très bien insonorisé et nous n'avons donc pas été gênés par le bruit urbain.
Nous avons eu un petit souci logistique à notre arrivée mais Jackie&Dia ont été très réactifs.
Si nous devions retourner sur Kyoto, il est fort probable que nous choisissions de nouveau l'appartement de Jackie&Dia.
the location is excellent, which is just 5 mins walk to Gion and Shijo with a lot of good restaurants and 24 hours grocery store. The room itself is extremely small as opposed to what it appears to be in the photo. After we place the matt down on the floor, there is barely enough space for us to open our suitcase. And the carpet it's a bit dirty which makes us not as comfortable. The host is also not as welcoming as written on the older reviews. The respond time is slow and seems to be reluctant too for our inquiries. May be we shouldnt really expect any services at all when staying at an Airbnb house.
Wonderful location , nice little walk and you are in Gion.
Very cosy a apartment.
A great place in a fantastic location! I enjoyed my time here and was impressed with Jackie and Dia's thorough communication about everything. The little signs around the apartment were invaluable for a first time Japan visitor. I would definitely stay again. Thank you, Jackie and Dia!
This was my second time staying with Jackie and Dia. I appreciate the thought and care they put into their communication and arranging the apartment in a fun and convenient way. The apartment had everything I needed. They are hands-off in their management yet are right there if needed. I appreciate the work they do and would not hesitate to stay with them in the future. This location is fantastic because it is near the river, close to transportation and shopping, and yet on a quiet and safe street.
