Nice accommodation, 15 min walk from Kyoto station. We are tired so we took taxi from station, cost 830 yen, but the driver have difficulties in locating the place. Good Internet connection and very clean! They have kitchen with kitchen ware, can cook and enjoy the day. If you need to go to toilet, you need to walk through an outdoor coordoor (3meter), in the winter, it's a bit cold to walk outside. But overall the place is very good and I'll recommend others to book this place.
It's been a great experience staying at K's Villa Matsumi-an! Everything is convinced and our family especially love the bike that the villa provided and we sure did biking around the town! Love the modern but yet tradition Japanese house and the breakfast that was provided near by the villa! Would definitely love to stay next time we're in Kyoto!
This fabulous little house has everything you need for an enjoyable visit to Kyoto!
We stayed here for one week and found the villa to be a fantastic base for exploring this amazing city. It has umbrella's for when it rains (or snows in our case) and bicycles to explore the city like a local - which we would highly recommend! There's also nothing like coming home after a long day exploring to relax in your own place with a drink, followed by a long soak in the bath.
Location within a residential district was quiet, but if you like experiences outside the normal tourist haunts it is perfect. It has excellent transport options with a subway station nearby and an easy walk from the main train station. We were able to visit many of the popular sites in the eastern part of the city as well as the main shopping district on foot. If time permits, day trips west to Arashiyama and north to Kibune / Kurama are well worthwhile too!
The communication with the villa before and after our stay was faultless, and the entire experience was easy and convenient. Could not recommend highly enough, would definitely look to stay here again if we're ever back in Kyoto!
Convenient location.. but it will be good if parking is provided..
Rooms are clean and spacious.. necessary cooking equipments are all provided..
The stay is too short.. should have stay there longer..
Beautiful house in japanese style! All the comfort inside, plus also bicycles for free, to ride around the wonderful Kyoto.
The staff was very kind and helpful. They took us to the Villa for the check-in.
Don't forget to book few months in advance because it is highly requested!
