“Wonderful Tranditional Japanese "Machiya"”
Reviewed 19 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

people found this review helpful

This is our first trip to kyoto, we are so happy to live in Tranditional Japanese "Machiya".
The house is comfortable, and the heater is warm.
We ride the bike to supermarket to buy some food for cooking, and the kitchen is very nice.
We have wonderful memories in the trip.
And before the trip, the correspondence with K'S house staff let us have a favourable impression.
Next time to Kyoto, we will select K'S house again.

“Nice stay in K's Villa Matsumi-an”
Reviewed 2 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Although we arrived Kyoto in early morning, we can keep luggage at K's House.
Then, we went for sight-seeing till late (about 10pm) and back to collect our luggage.
The staff was very nice. He afraid it was too dark and difficult for us to find the location of K's Villa at night. He bring us to K's Villa and had a brief introduction.

Matsumi-an is a traditional Kyoto house in very good condition.
Good and modern interior design with a lovely small "traditional garden".
Spacious and comfortable.

Very good and memorable experience to stay in Matsumi-an!

“Excellent Accomodation, Friendly staff and Great location”
Reviewed 19 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

K's Villa is a comforting house with appliances to suit all needs. Great location handy to subway and train stations. Tori gates are only a 5 min trip away via the Sub. The staff were very helpful with suggestions about things to see and how to get around Kyoto. The house was immaculate exactly like the photos on the website. We travelled with a 11 and 7 year old kids and they enjoyed the surrounds especially the ability to use the bikes to ride around Kyoto. Will definiltey be coming back to K's Villa next time we are in Kyoto.

“Classic Japanese hostel”
Reviewed 18 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

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.

“Enjoyable staying at K's Villa Kyoto!”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

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!
