"Authentic Japanese style house on quaint alley"
Off the beaten path, this house is great for a family of four. It is in a great location for food, access to subway yet quiet. It is an eco-house, with many impressive energy saving details. As well, we arrived late and the the fridge was stocked with food, so we didn't have to go out late at night. It was a truly local experience. We loved it.

Shikokuan Machiya Residence Inn

Matsubara-agaru, Shimogyo-ku, Kyoto - Map
"Great Location in Historic Kyoto House"
Great location, only a short walk to the Gion District. House is in great condition, two toilets and nice shower/bath room. Very traditional with very little furniture. Looks like it should sleep 6, but only has bedding for 4. Nice little kitchen, washer/dryer takes about 5 hours per load. Stairs are very steep, more like a ladder. The directions to get to the office were very confusing. Once you sign in, you need to take a taxi to the house. Hard to find the first time, but right next to the canal and river, so easy landmarks. Make sure to rent bikes for the day, you can find a shop only a few blocks away and they don't cost much.

"Excellent value hotel with friendly service"
Had a nice room on top floor, view to Kyoto tower, vg shower etc but bathroom a bit small Good desk and sitting space. Very good staff, left my bag in morning before checking in and they had bought it up to the room before I got back in afternoon. They gave me a free ticket to the Kyoto tower and bike hire was free. Staff all had nice personalities and were very helpfull... I did not eat there

Kyoto Uji Hanayashiki Ukifune-en

20 Uji Togawa, Uji - Map
"River Front Ryokan"
I couldn't find suitable hotels in Kyoto for the family of four, so we selected Uji as an alternative. Uji was an ideal location for since we wanted to visit Kyoto and Nara. It took us 20 min to Kyoto and 25 min to Nara by JR from Uji. Staying in Uji was the best decision we made. We loved the beautiful and relaxing Uji over Kyoto for sure. Ukifune-en has charm of the traditional ryokan and the modern convenience. The majestic Uji River view from our balcony deserves 5 starts by itself.

"Located perfect for gion and kyomisu dera"
A modern japanese ryokan. Nice tattame rooms in an excellent location. Service was first class, attentive helpful and personable. I loved the way they helped us with instructions on wearing yukata, hardly rocket science but sweet. Ordered taxis arrived on time. The public bath was also good and relaxing. Also nice to have our own minitubs as well. We have stayed in old ryokan, ultra modern hotels and business hotels in Kyoto and this one suited us the best.

"Traditional Kyoto town house in excellent location"
Living like a local! The house is in the traditional layout with tatami mats in living room and bedroom and sliding screens to the living room. Kitchen and bathroom very modern high spec yet have the traditional feel. We walked to many tourist attractions directly from the house and excellent bus services are nearby. Futons are directly on the tatami mats, and the sitting room consists of just a low table and cushions to kneel on. There is a footwell under the table, so we could sit rather than kneel at the table, which was rather more comfortable for us Europians not used to kneeling and sitting on our feet. From the sitting room was a view to the delightful little courtyard garden. You have the whole house to yourself. A cleaner comes in at some point during the day, but no other staff. What we didn't realise was that we had to ring the agent to be met at the house. We turned up at check-in time but the place was deserted and my mobile phone didn't work. You need 4G in Japan. The taxi driver didn't know the address and you need a printout of the map to show him!
