      The location of the house, environment nearby and prompt reply of staff were the best 3 things of Aoi Kyoto stay.

      Excellent stay. Everything perfect, I think it is one of the best place to stay in Kyoto. Very easy to find the house and it felt like home. One thing was that yhe stairs were rather small so families with elderies may not be suggested to stay.

      The most beautifully designed Ryokan we stayed in on the trip. Unlike the more traditional Ryokans, no food was served which was fine as Kyoto has so much good food. We enjoyed staying in a historic building, tastefully designed. Will be back and stay longer.

      Friendly staff, beautiful room and view, great location

      It was an amazing stay and my husband and I would like to go back to stay there when we visit Kyoto next time. It is a 2-floor house with quite satisfying room size. All the furnitures and facilities in the room are perfect. The location is great, quite near to a lot of major sightseeings and a lot of restaurants and bars nearby. Although that, when you are in the room, it is very quiet at night. What I love most is that there is a small greek just outside the living room and you can hear the water flowing and see the ducks swimming in there.

      Location, staff, decoration

      Great place to stay for those on a romantic holiday and interested in some sightseeing. We stayed for 1 night only, wish it could have been longer. Location is very nice (you have to get used to people walking by looking at you through the window though), small stream right in front and bars and restaurants within walking distance. The staff is very attentive, helped out with last moment bike rentals and were very helpful overall.

      This was one of our best hotel stays anywhere in the World. Almost sublimely perfect. ”

      My wife and I travel abroad quite regularly and she likes to stay at nice places. We were very glad to have found Aoi Kyoto Stay and this particular house. It is small but very tastefully done. We loved the decor and how the furnishings and accessories maximized the space and elegantly appointed. The location is also perfect with lots of restaurants and bars practically next door and across the street. It gave us a sense of being locals living the Kyoto life. I cannot say enough nice things about the staff at Aoi Kyoto. Everyone we were in contact with before we got to Kyoto and during our stay were gracious, available and ready to help with anything we needed. In particular, Sven was amazing. I had been in touch with him weeks before our trip and he always responded within a day with recommendations and suggestions, and making dinner reservations. His service was superlative. We loved Kyoto and plan to be back and we wouldn’t stay anywhere else but here everytime.

      Rooms are located everywhere in the city! Location is hard to tell”

      Have been living in two rooms in this hotel. Takasegawa and Shinmachi. Takasegawa has better location, that you can walk to Kiyomizu temple, Keon, and the most prosperous business area in the city. The house is small with a very narrow & cliffy stairs that my parent can not go upstairs and have to sleep in the living room. But it has a beautiful view of the river running in front of the house. The second room is Shinmachi. Shinmachi located in the center of local residence area. It is between two railway stations, to either of the station is with the equal distance. You have to walk anywhere, and it is not a short distance to me. The most annoying thing is this room has no heating in some of the room. Even there are air-conditions, you still feel cold because of the structure. The hotel definitely knows about this and brought a "heating fan", and told me to bring with me to toilet and shower room etc when moving to other rooms...

      Good”

      Helpful staff but downside is the restricted check-in time (afternoon until 1800hrs) and slightly dusty interior. No washing facilities which I expected for renting a house. Access can be an issue for the elderly/ disabled or those with plenty of luggage which we thankfully did not encounter. Will consider staying again if more appropriately priced.

      Great Place to Stay in Kyoto”

      Excellent Location. Charming Environment.

      An overall excellent stay. The reception for the hotel is about 50m from the actual suite that I stayed in, so if you do not have an active cell phone line (which I did not, nor is there a phone in the hotel) and you need any assistance or would like to ask a question to the Aoi staff this is impossible. They close at 11pm at night and there is no form of room service or bar etc, this is not so bad considering there are many good restaurants close by. The stairs up to the bathroom and bedroom were so steep that they may prove difficult for an older person and the front door was exceedingly hard to close. For the same cost one can stay in a well appointed hotel in the middle of the city with all the services that the Aoi does not provide. Although, the location was hard to beat. My suite was right on the river. I guess you sacrifice usual hotel service for such a beautiful location.

      location, decoration, staff

      Aoi Kyoto was exactly what we were looking for - experiencing Kyoto like a local and not staying at a typical hotel. The house was decorated in a very modern way while maintaining the original esthetics, it was also surprisingly a lot bigger than we imagined! Their staff was helpful and accommodating and the location of the house could not be better. Would definitely recommend.

      Very pleasant stay, it's a beautiful traditional Japanese house modernly furnished, located in a quiet local area, great for those who wants to really experience the local japanese neighbourhood. Staff were very helpful, when enquired about a nearby pharmacy at late night, they promptly provided direction over email, their effort was very appreciated. The house is situated along the creek and its amazingly beautiful, makes sitting at the balcony door an absolute joy. Be mindful that parking is not available at the premises, however the friendly staff were able to guide us to a nearby parking lot.

      it was a pleasant stay at Manjuji bashi and spacious enough for 4 adults. The ceiling is quite low. It's a perfect fusion of traditional and modern Japanese culture. It's ideal for those who are intrigued by Japanese culture but not for those who are used to hotel rooms and require concierge assistance. The hotel staff are easily contactable via phone and email.

      Amazing place. Well worth it. This 2 story house in the heart of Gion, kyoto was incredible. The house was very old but fitted with modern comforts so you get the best of the old world with the new. Minutes walk to restaurants and the Yasaka Shrine. Highly recommend the Alio garden nearby to eat. this place has everything. Wifi, music, traditional feel, bathtub that can easily fit a couple, kitchen, laundry (washer and dryer), close to restaurants. We didn't arrange food 3 days prior to arrival so didn't get to enjoy that but I imagine it would have been amazing. The staff greeted us at the taxi with umbrellas, they were delightful and their English was outstanding. Highly recommended.

      It was really nice. The location of Aoi Kyoto stay is superb, so close to the Main Street but hidden in a quiet street. Loads of restaurants near the place. The house faces a little stream with a small bridge. I feel so calm by just chilling in the lounge and watch the water flows with a nice Japanese Matcha in my hand. This is exactly what I wanted to experience in Kyoto. If u want your own place and be a local in Kyoto, Aoi Kyoto Stay will be your choice .

      Nice design, close to interesting areas, close to shops and restaurants

      We enjoyed our stay but the place was a bit difficult to find for the taxi driver. The staff was helpful but I think this stay would have been better for a local person who had a phone. The place does not have a phone and might have been easier for us to stay at a hotel where they could book things, make reservations for dinner and give use some advice. Kyoto was more difficult for a tourist than Tokyo (in finding restaurants, sites, etc.). It was a cute place but I would not recommend it for a stay longer than a couple nights as the stairs were very narrow and a bit cramped for the two of us and our 7 year old son. Having said that there was a little playground and awesome pizzeria down the road which my son enjoyed. A lovey place and great area.
