A return to the past, in a perfect location. This townhouse ( Machiya ) was rebuilt a few years ago. Everthing is fairly new and it all works. For two of us it was perfect, much larger than a hotel room and in a very central location. We could walk to most places, and on occasion took a combination of taxi's and subway. Within 15 minutes walk are temples, gardens, Geishas, ( If you are lucky ), restaurants and shopping. There are food outlets close by so we used the well equipped kitchen for breakfast and snacks. The bathrooms are Japanese. Shower outside the tub, then get in and soak. TV on the wall in the upstarirs bath. Automatic toilets, with heated seats, very comfortable, and easy to get used to. There is a computer available in the small hallway for internet connection. No Wi Fi. The new Tv was nice but only available in Japanese. We got used to it, sports were easy ( Sumo Competition).
We would certainly return to this unit if we return to Kyoto. Dont come early for check in, the code you get is on a timer, 3 PM means 3 PM.
