I was in Japan 3 1/2 weeks staying at a combination of ryokans and hotels. The stay at this house was one of our favorites and the most memorable. The owner met us upon arrival to orient and show us around. She also arranged taxis and took calls from drivers when they had difficulty finding the house. It turned out to be an excellent location to walk around downtown Kyoto. Everything in the house worked beautifully and was excellently maintained. We so appreciated laminated large font instructions for heating, AC and washer/dryer. This can be a challenge in Japan for non Japanese speaker/readers. The beds were heavenly. It is obvious that the owners take extreme pride in this property. I could not think of anything that could be improved.
One of the best experiences in a travel rental yet. We we're truly blessed with all that this home offered we would highly recommend.
This property is in a great location. has great facilities and is very clean.
Access to the property was easy.
Our host Rieko is lovely and very helpful, thoughtful and kind. She went above and beyond to ensure our stay was pleasant. 4th time visiting Kyoto. Best accommodation yet.
This rental house is in a convenient location that is 10 minute walk to Nishiki Market, Ippudo ramen, Daimaru Department Store with huge basement food store and many other restaurants. Rieko is very responsive to all questions/emails and try to make our stay as enjoyable as possible, The house is nice and clean and has everything we need for a comfortable stay for 3 of us.
We really enjoyed our stay in Senraku. It is in a quiet and secluded spot within walking distance of central Kyoto. The facilities are of a high standard and in very good condition. The beds, although on the floor, were very comfortable. The dining table is Japanese height (low) so may not suit all western travellers, but we managed fine. The only negative was that there was very little hot water flow in the bathroom basin - but there was plenty of hot water for the shower and kitchen. The written guidance provided by Thomas and Rieko was excellent and they were very welcoming and helpful.
