“clean and convenient”
Reviewed 2 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

The place is a short walk to the river, subway stations, and walking distance to Gion and downtown areas if one doesn't mind walking. Kyoto downtown area is small, and the property is at about the edge of the downtown area, but the opposite side of the river. The Imperial Palace and Nijo Castle are not very far away. It's clean, convenient and comfortable, which are the most important things for us when travelling.It's big enough to hold 4 people and our many luggages. There is a washing machine in the balcony, and coat rake and coat hangers inside. The Kitchen bench is too small to operate, but that's OK as one does not do much cooking when travelling. The owner Hiroshi speaks basic English, and prepared maps and travel information for us. Before arrival the communication was with John who I guess is a native English speaker. The neighbourhood and the property itself are not fancy, and do not show much of traditional Kyoto which you might see elsewhere, but it is more than adequate for a comfortable stay.
We arrived later than expected and Hiroshi was very kind to wait for us till we arrived. Also when I made the booking, somehow the dates were different from what I entered when doing searching (one day early for check-in and check out), and I didn't double check until after the request was sent. Neither I nor the owner could make changes to the booking (how strange! I refrain from using the system for other bookings after this), but Hiroshi was kind to let us check in and check out on the right days.

“Perfect accommodation!”

This one-room efficiency was perfect for our family of four. Curtains separate the room into two different sleeping spaces if you choose. Great location near the downtown area, river and walkable to Gion and many other attractions. A grocery and pharmacy are right down the street, as are several restaurants. We would definitely stay here again!
