It's great location makes up for its small size. It is amazing place for a one or two week stay in Kyoto.
Come and stay in our lovely Machiya house in total privacy and experience the real Kyoto!
Great accommodation. Clean, well appointed rooms. Very good location. Excellent information pack with maps, restaurants and important information.
Nobuya is an excellent host. He met us at the machiya guesthouse an hour after our expected arrival and gave us a good overview of the property and surrounding area. Kyoto is lovely and the guesthouse is well located in the middle of town. We really appreciated the traditional deep Japanese bath and tatami mats. We all slept well at the house.
It was very pleasant to stay at Nobu's house. My parents told me it's very memorable experience to stay in an authentic Japanese townhouse, even better than the Crowne Plaza in Osaka and Hilton in Tokyo!!!FACILITY: good. You can even wash your clothes and cook meals. Very clean and tidy. There is a small garden in the house that you can smoke. LOCATION: good. It's very convenient to go to scenic spots by bus or subway. There is a supermarket and convenient store nearby that provide everything you need. OWNER: good. Nobu San is very nice and helpful. He gave us the city map and taught us how to use the facilities in the house. I highly recommend people to stay at this lovely townhouse especially if you are traveling with families.
We loved our stay at Nobuya's house. The house is lovely and comfortable for 4 people. It is clean, exactly as described, and well stocked. Nobuya is a great host. He was quick to respond to our messages. He met us at check-in and gave us an orientation of the house and the neighborhood. The house manual is very helpful, especially the restaurant list. The location is great. Within a few minutes walk from the house are a supermarket, post office, bank, restaurants, etc. Highly recommended!
