We spent three nights in this little villa during a cold spell in March 2014. Very welcoming staff who were happy to let us get on with discovering kyoto ourselves. Great location just south of Gion and very walkable to kyoto station and downtown. Clean, comfortable and cosy. Would highly recommend.

My Wife and I stayed here for 10 days. Thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Was easy to find, short walk to Kyoto or Gojo station.
Villa was very clean, serviced every 3 days. All facilities were above expectation.
Would recommend to anyone seeking an alternative to a hotel.

“beautiful house in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 6 February 2014 for a stay in January 2014

person found this review helpful

Takasegawa-tei is located in front of Takase river, a parallel canal to the beautiful Kamogawa. The house was a delight, a beautiful modern variant of the traditional Japanese town house....ie, all mod cons. We had no problem with the fact that there was no bath. The shower is a pulsating massage shower, and there is a traditional bathhouse just around the corner. The living spaces are designed well, so we didn't feel hemmed in, and the upstairs area where the sleeping quarters are is really quite beautiful, with a lovely full sized window with views out to the canal. There are blinds, so privacy is no problem. The doonahs supplied are the nicest we've ever experience.
The street in front of the house is too narrow for cars. This is both a plus and minus. Not much traffic, but difficult for taxi access. The house comfortable sleeps two. You could sleep extras in the smaller tatami room upstairs, or maybe downstairs is an option. Step steepness is not too bad......we've seen much worse. We'd definitely stay here again!

“relaxing stay in Kyoto”
Reviewed 6 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

We stayed at the town house by Takase river with two other friends during the new year holiday. Upon arriving at the house from a very quick taxi ride from the train station we were greeted by the cutest residential neighborhood. The townhouse was charming and updated with modern amenities. It definitely was a welcomed reprieve from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kyoto but still with in walking distance and close to a bus stop.

“Excellent Location, New Facilities”
Reviewed 23 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

Stayed for 4 nights with my wife and 2 children. Ample space for all.
Great location, near to Kyoto Station and shopping street with lots of restaurant.
While it is near those areas, it is situated in a quiet lane facing a stream which gives it a tranquil atmosphere.
The place has been newly renovated with new facilities and appliances.
Last but not least, it is near a Toyota Car Rental outlet which is useful for renting a car to explore attractions in the outer parts of Kyoto.
Highly recommended !

nice location. everything we needed was available : kichen and laundry. the staff was very very nice. when we needed their help, we just had to call and they were here in 5 minutes! there was a cleaning service for free also wich was nice.
i think it was a bit dangerous to stay at tagasegawa with small children because there was steps without protection...
