“Awesome accomodation !”
Reviewed 21 March 2018 for a stay in October 2017

If you want to experience a unique japanese living, do not hesitate to book! We loved this flat with its balcony over the small channel! We loved as well the surroundings with some typical old houses and narrow street. In 10 minutes you're in the old Gion neighbourghood wtih it fascination.
Last but not least, we very much appreciated the helpfulness of Andrea.
March 2018. As I wanted to recommend this accommodation to a friend travelling to Kyoto, I noticed that I missed to place a comment on TripAdvisor as I booked through Airbnb. An unforgiveable mistakes which I make up 6 months later...

“Couldn't ask for a better place!”
Reviewed 28 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We loved everything about this apartment! The apartment itself has been beautifully renovated in the traditional Tatami style of Japanese living. It's equipped with everything you can possibly need during your stay, but in case you're missing anything, you are also within walking distance of many convenience stores and supermarkets. The view from the balcony really adds that extra touch and makes this apartment truly special.

The location is exceptional, transportation to every major sight in Kyoto is easily accessible. You are also walking distance to Gion and Kawaramachi, and have a multitude of restaurant options within easy reach.

Mayumi and Andrea are fantastic hosts. Andrea was even kind enough to meet us at the bus stop and helped us with our luggage when we arrived. We loved our stay at Sakura River and hope we can return in the very near future!

Excellent location and spacious by Japanese standards. Andrea was very friendly and gave good recommendations. Rooms were well heated. Only the toilet gets a little chilly.

“Marvellous!!”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The location of the apartment as well as the facilities provided in the apartment were superb. The apartment was very clean and very much the same like the advertised photos. Andrea gave us pretty detail instruction on how to reach the apartment and even he already gave us the instruction we were quite surprised that he waited us in the corner near the bus stop to walk us to the apartment and show us the surrounding. He even gave us his suggested itineraries.
The apartment is located next to a small river so we could hear the duck in the morning as well as the calming sound of water stream in the small river.
This place is totally recommended!

“kyoto perfection”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

Andrea and Mayumi's Place is simply awesome. They are excellent hosts check in and out was no drama at all and Andrea offered to show us some maps when we arrived to some of the local highlights of Kyoto (which were absolutely invaluable ) , the apartment is clean and tidy and functional, the beds (japanese style) were super comfortable and pretty big actually ( and i'm 6'3" ) The Location is absolutely perfect - one 5-10 min bus ride from Kyoto Station, in the middle of the dining district of Kyoto and about a 10 minute walk to the main shopping street of Kyoto and the Nishiki food markets. From there its an entertaining walk down the main street to old Gion. Perfect place to stay - Cannot recommend it enough.
