good location near the JR station, nice decor inside, rooms are spacious by Japanese standards. good communication between the owners and renters, would definitely recommend this property to anyone
We loved our stay at Machiya. The apartment was spacious by Japanese standards with separate bedrooms and lounge/kitchen area. The bedding was a combination of western and Japanese bedding, both of which were comfortable. The living area had a lounge, large TV, western style dining chairs and table and well equipped kitchen. The bathroom/laundry downstairs was a good size with generous bath and 2 separate toilets were a big bonus - one upstairs and one downstairs. The area was residential and quiet but with good access to public transport. It was only a short bus ride to Kyoto's main shopping/entertainment area and walking distance to some of the temples and museums. The check in process was easier than I had anticipated and there was a quick response to the minor issues we encountered e.g. the missing hair dryer was promptly replaced.
Our group of five friends just had the most enjoyable experience in this Kyoto machiya. Great traditional atmosphere with modern luxury comfort. We couldn't be more pleased -- everything was well thought of and it's just perfect!
The rather good photos of their web page do not do justice to the beauty and quality of the place.
With bus stops around the corner, the location is great as a base to visit and explore Kyoto. And the owner was always so responsive and helpful.
We all would love to come back. Highly recommended.

We stayed here for 4 nights in mid may 2015. It's a wonderful place with beautiful rooms and very comfortable beds. The kitchen is fab and well equipped with modern appliances. The bathroom has a great deep bath and good water supply. You can catch a bus to Gion20 minutes (walk) 10 mins bus away. Supermarkets are close by. The apartment is beautifully restored with terrific modern Touches. The Italiancafe over the railway walkway is brilliant. It's called cafe nido.
