We printed out the instructions and had no problem finding the place. There are 2 floors and the top bedroom is really one room with a slider between, so if sharing like the 4 of us, make sure you are comfortable with this. The stairs are very steep, we had no problem but beware. There is everything you need and nothing you want. A minimalistic shrine to Ikea. The location is great.
I stayed at Matt's wonderful apartment for three nights with my partner in April. It was brilliant! The location is in downtown Kyoto about 2 minutes walk from major department stores and shops such as Loft, Muji and Flying Tiger. In the other direction is Pontocho Alley (3 minutes walk) and Gion, approximately a 10 minute walk away. The apartment is near a subway station and is situated on a canal and street lined with sakura which looked stunning as it was cherry blossom season. The apartment is spacious, modern and very clean with a living area, kitchen, toilet, bathroom and bedroom. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and the beds were super soft and comfortable. The pocket wi-fi was very helpful. We were given detailed instructions on how to get to the apartment and Matt was very prompt with communication. I will definitely be staying at Matt's apartment again when I return to Kyoto!
Cozy nice house with plenty of space for our family with 2 young boys.
Location is not very near to the station, especially if you bring small children to walk with, but should be okay for adults.
Overall stay was enjoyable.
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.
This house is very well kept. It's clean and equipped with all necessities. The location is a little far from both the train and subway station (about 10 to 15 mins walk), but you will get used to the walking. There's a supermarket nearby where we get our food.
The apartment was exactly what was described.check in was easy and located very near to a kiyomizu gojo station. Very quiet environment. My family have a very good stay here.
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.
The house is just nice for us - family of 5 in which we get to experience living in a typical Japanese household. The neighbourhood is quite peaceful and quiet. As for the location wise, it is as described - about 10-15 minutes walk from Tofukuji station (one station from Kyoto station) so it is quite convenient to take trains from Tofukuji to elsewhere. Plus, you will pass by 2 convenience shops along the way back so getting snacks or dinner at arm's reach is no problem. The cons of staying here will be that it gets cold at night even with heater on(only in the living room and bedroom) , the walls are quite thin and that space is quite limited that we had to leave our luggage near the door.
Very nice apartment! Good location with a lot of restaurants, shops and beautiful scenes within walking distance. Easy logistics too! Highly recommended : )
The instructions for getting to Matt's place was precise and exact and we found it very easy to locate. It was definitely budget accommodation with a small room only enough to fit two futons and not much significant space other than the kitchen and corridor. The balcony door is large and the cold air gets in easily, have to close the curtains and use pillows to try to trap the cold air outside. Futons were also not that thick, the listing suggested doubling up the futons but dont see how we could do that as only one was provided per person. Hot water bottles provided = good idea! The shower area is small. If you are bringing many bags or are quite bulky that this place may be quite cramped. The big plus was location. Location was excellent, pleasant walkable distance to the station and very convenient for everything.
Matt kept me updated with arrival times and he and his family were pleasant and polite. I hope they enjoyed their stay!
Matt was an excellent guest. He left the house in great condition and I would highly recommend him.
Matt stayed for a conference. Although we didn't meet communication was great.
See highly recommend Matt.
It was great to have Matt staying with us. We enjoyed his intelligent and interesting company and he is the perfect guest - courteous and easy-going.
Matt came with his family and another family friend. They were very nice and left the house clean and in good condition. I wish all guests were like them.
Not only was Matt a great guest, he also promised to share some rain with us from England. Well, it worked like a charm, and the Northern California drought was broken within a few days. Cannot thank Matt enough!!
La casa quedo en perfecto (website hidden) reservo otros comentarios.
Matt was a very pleasant guest. I just saw him the last days because i
wasn´t in town but my flatmates liked him immediately!
I think Matt is a very open-minded and educated person and it´s cool that he is travelling and hosting by Airbnb. I am sorry that your meetings didn´t give you enough time to see our beautiful Luzern again:)
If i ever come to Kyoto i would use Matts apartment!
je suis vraiment ravie que vous ayez apprécié notre maison et la région ! Vous avez tout à fait raison : on est à 30 mn de beaucoup de choses à voir, à faire... en un sens, c'est central ! ;))
C'est pour moi un formidable encouragement à l'énergie que je mets à faire partager ma maison et au souhait que j'ai de l'améliorer chaque année.
Merci pour la qualité de nos échanges, et bonne continuation.
Matt was a great guest, he was pretty busy in his trip but really respectful, easy going and godo to be around with. He is also an AirBnB host and we spoke briefly about our experiences. Nice chap.
Matt is a wonderful person and one of the most interesting travelers who will meet. His knowledge of just about anything around the world is immense and he's happy to share it on demand. He's also very respectful, open and honest and I am very happy to recommend him as a guest!
