I had friends staying at the Tokyu hotel only a couple of blocks away, so this was perfect for what I needed. They paid about $200/night, and I paid much, much less. Then again, I really only used the apartment to sleep. The host was very responsive when I had trouble finding the apartment building. The mat is actually pretty comfortable and the AC worked great, once you figure out how to work it since the directions on the remote are only in Kanji. It is a ways to most of the happening areas, but pretty easy to navigate with bus or cab. All in all, a really great value for the money!
This is an older apartment with a more traditional layout. Everything is functional as expected. The apartment has a wifi router but not pocket wifi. It is clean and but not spotless: The shower curtain has some mildew and the balcony door hinge wobbly from missing a screw. I wish we had storage space since the closet and wardrobe already had stuff inside. Not to worry, there was enough space around the room for a couple of open suitcases. It was convenient to grab the train at JR Tambaguchi station or bus at Gojo Omiya. I wish the host left more detailed directions about transportation (I had to ask) because (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps did not easily pick up the address; it is right next to the Esso gas station on Shimohojocho. The location had the bonus of being on a little side street with a nice amount of old Kyoto charm. Overall, it was fine for a couple of nights if you are not looking to spend a lot time indoors.
My time spent here was amazing! I couldn't ask for more from a host. Everything was provided as advertised on their profile. The neighborhood was nice and quiet and relatively close to the train/bus stations - although I regularly walked everywhere without issue. I highly recommend this place to anyone.
Nice and clean room. Roomy for 1, comfortable for 2, and a little tight for 3. Thr main room has futon bedding/table/floor chairs/hair dryer/curling iron/map of the area with area magazine/extension cord with USB charger/table mirror/tissues. Window coverings are sliding wood rollers for privacy but not really light blocking. Wifi cut in&out a bit. Smelled a bit strongly of menthol-ish. Might be the cleaning agent? Located on third floor/no elevator. Bathroom had soap/shampoo/conditioner/toothbrush/shower curtain. Just remember to clear the drain infront of the tub to prevent clogging/back up. Area in front of door has wire shelf with hangers. Next to that is a sink/hotplate with a small pot/cups/chopsticks/soap/soysauce. No mini fridge. (Do not run hot water through this sink. Might melt plumbing.) Area outside is convenient and easy to find. Room for a rented bicycle outside. Drink vending machine in front. Near a large road so can be a bit noisy if unused to it. On the same note convenience store just around the corner. Not as close to many of the sites but biking/public transport makes it a breeze to access. Would stay again!
This was a great listing my wife and I used for a single night. The hosts met us at the nearest metro station and walked with us back to the listing. On the way they suggested places to see and things to eat. They explained the buses and metro to us as well. The single bedroom apartment is great with plenty of space in the bedroom, and a great bathroom. The location was great as well, relatively close to the a JR station, which makes it a great place for those with the Japan Railpass, as you don't even need to buy a metro ticket when you roll in to Kyoto station on the Shinkansen.
