Your opinion on this Machiya please!

Hi

Thanks in advance for your help. This is our first time to Japan and 2 couples would like to share a Machiya. Location is our first choice, prefer to be able to access to central train station for day trip. Currently we are inquiring about the Seiun-an property. What would you think or should we choose other properties?

I have no experience with this facility, but the reviews are good. However, in looking at the map on their web site, it is a bit of a walk to a subway station and then one transfer to get to Kyoto Station. Just mentioning that because you indicated that location to easy transportation is your first priority.

I think the location is superb. It's in the middle of Gion, very close to Shirakawa, Chionin, Hanamikoji and a bus stop. This area has really Kyoto-like atmosphere and tons of dining options. You can walk to many attractions from this Machiya.

It's a bit of a walk from train/subway but you'll not find many (if any) Machiya right on a subway/train.
