This is a self sufficient Machiya. Location is great with less than 2 mins walk from subway. Serene surrounding in Gion district. Would definitely recommend and stay again.

“4 nights at Hatoba and 1 night at Tokiwa house”
Reviewed 17 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Hatoba is a roomy house for 5 of us.
It had a large area for luggage and a separate living room for TV and eating area. We had to moved to stayed 1 nite at Tokiwa as Hatoba was booked earlier on. We were recommended to stay in Tokiwa which is half a size smaller. We enjoy the traditional wooden houses and they have mobile phone in every house for you to contact them if you have queries. Very convenient. They have everything in both houses, and it is really nice and comfortable stay if you like to experience japanese houses. We really enjoyed our stay.

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Hatoba-an! What sets our Machiya apart from other typical hotels is that we are able to offer traditional aspects of Kyoto with modern conveniences!
Also, you are right in noticing that the location of this Machiya is quite conveniently close to many restaurants, sightseeing attractions, and transportation options. Thank you again for your review, and we hope to see you again the next time that you visit Kyoto!

“one of the best stays ever”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I and my family stayed at the townhouse hatoba-an for 5 days. The house is old and traditional, but beautifully and stylish renovated. I could feel how much the Staff of Machiya Residence Inn tried to make the house perfect in every detail. It was very comfortable to stay here, as if I were staying home, at the same time staying here gave me the feeling that I was really in Japan. I travelled with my babies (one 11 month, the other 30 month old), so the fully equipped kitchenettes was very useful to prepare baby’s meals. There is a small convenient store near the house, but if you make your foods or prepare baby’s meals, you had better go to fresco or Aeon jusco. Fresco is 10 minute, jusco 15 minute walking distance from the house. This house is spotless clean and very spacious. There are two rooms on the second floor, but we used only one room to sleep (5 persons and 2 babies). Overall, I love this house, when I go to Kyoto again, I will definitely stay here, or in another Machiya Residence Inn.

Thank you for your kind review. It's good to hear that you were able to enjoy your stay in Hatoba-an. We truly take pride in bringing together the traditional and modern for a unique taste of Kyoto that you might not experience staying in a hotel. We are glad that you were able to prepare your baby's food in the kitchen as well. We have several other machiya, located in various areas of Kyoto, all offering a slightly different taste of Kyoto life. Thank you again, and we hope you'll stay with us again in the future!
