Great location in a quiet street. The building manager Mariko was fantastic and was so helpful. Our two teenage daughters loved the apartment as well. Nice to have some space after the confines of Tokyo.
We had a real good time in Shofu-an. Being located very conveniently to do a lot of sightseeing by feet and really dive into old Kyoto at times where most of the tourists are already gone. It's also good place for coffee-lovers as a Nespresso machine with free capsules is provided and this hidden gem is very nearby: http://www.arabica.hk/#cafe-kyoto
Mariko recommended us a very oishii oil-soba place 1 mins by foot, where we went back frequently.
It's definitely a perfect location, if you want to experience a traditional stay in a townhouse without having to compromise on modern comfort (two real beds, very nice bathroom). We enjoyed especially to have a living room with nice inside garden and balcony to hang out and recover from sightseeing. All of that for a more than reasonable price.
I would choose this property again any time!!
