Reviewed 21 July 2011 for a stay in June 2011

We loved staying at this japanese style apartment, perfect tonic after a a week at hotels & we certainly missed it when we checked out.
The location was brillant & everyday we discovered something new about the area. Loved the bakery across the road !! Such a good donut pastry thingy that we tried to find a replica throughout Japan & couldn't find a mtach :(.
The apartment was well laid out, tastefully furnished & had all we needed in there. Only negative was bed was hard & pillows were hard, but between so much walking, cycling & asahi's sleep wasn't an issue. Also would be a positive if owners left some cooking oil or spray (as it took us ages to work out what oil was in store) as they left all other condiments.
Don't hesitate as a wondeful stay & great area to discover Kyoto.

Thank you so much for your kind words about Gion Machiya. We are sorry about the oil... We leave most of the things the guests leave behind if we find them reusable and clean enough, but we don't normally stock the house with any food items for hygiene reasons. Hardness of the beds and pillows is also controversial as each person has his own preference! In any case, we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to accommodating you again on your next trip to Kyoto.
Warm regards,
Yukiko, Rob, and Hiromi
