Kyoto's best value. We loved this hotel.”
We stayed at RESI STAY Owan Hanami for 2 nights with my family. We stayed at the 4th floor unit,; top floor; with 5 adults. We have plenty of space and open air Terrace. The unit had Washer(w/ laundry detergent provided) inside the unit with the dryer located in the second floor. The bathroom has a large bathtub and shower. We opted out of the hotel's box breakfast, so that we could explore local Cafe around the corner (step out the hotel and make 2 left turns and you are there. The bus stop is 3-5 min walk, step out the hotel and make 2 right turns and you will find the Bus stops. The bus is best way to explore Kyoto, purchase a Bus only day pass at Kyoto Station or FamilyMart for 600Y/person and you are set for a day. We loved this hotel and we will defensively stay the Owan Hanami again next time we are in Kyoto.
Thank you so much for your comment. We are so glad to hear that you love our accommodation. The room which you booked has a large balcony so you must have been relaxed! Only 2 rooms on 4th floor have balcony. It's nice that you enjoyed local cafe. We are looking forward to seeing you again in the future. RESI STAY reception counter
I had a wonderful experience at Resi Owan Hanami. The staffs were so helpful and friendly. Our flight was delayed almost 1 day due to a typhoon and when rushing to Kyoto, it was 1 day late for checkin. But the reception staff was very supportive at replying us and arranged shuttle bus to take us to the hotel. I would like to thank them so much for helping us. The location is great! I even just needed to walk to Nijo Castle and Nishiki market. The neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful, which made me feel more about Japan life and people. There are many supermarkets nearby. It’s also near the bus station, just 2’ from the stay (It’s more convenient to take the bus than train for transportation in Kyoto) The room is super clean and get everything I need. I will recommend Resi for anyone having a travel plan to Kyoto. Thank you!
Thank you very much for your comment. We are glad to hear that we could help you your stay became shorter because of typhoon though. We hope you to come back to Kyoto in spring or summer to no to get involved typhoon next time! We are looking forward to seeing you in the future. RESI STAY reception counter
Fantastic Place with lot of amenities ”
Resi Stay Owan was an ideal place for our 2 nights stay in Kyoto. Though it has its check-in desk right in front of Kyoto Station and the accommodation is bit far from that place (around 15 minutes ride), they provide a free shuttle bus at check in. Though, it's not provided at checkout, we were lucky since the shuttle just happened to be there at our checkout and the hotel staff offered us a ride back to their check-in office, which was truly awesome. The accommodation provide free laundry service onsite, which is quite handy and i haven't come across a free service at any other place in Japan during my stay. Further the train station to Arashiyama, bus stop to Nijo castle, Imperial Palace and other major attractions are just under 12 minutes walk. Also Nishiki market and a busy shopping district is just an 8 minutes walk away. Also they provide a baggage drop service in case you need to stay in Kyoto after your check out. Room is small but okay compared to Japanese standards.
Thank you very much for your review on our service and accommodations. Hearing about your experience is very helpful for us to increase our guests’ satisfaction during their stay in Kyoto. RESISTAY has several kinds of accommodations in Kyoto, from apartment-style rooms to Kyoto Townhouses. We would be happy if you come back to stay with RESISTAY again in the near future.

Good Value for 3 friends”
Hotel is near bus station, and walking distance to train station and many restaurants. We booked Family B of Resi Stay Owan Amaterrace, stayed in rm 105. Despite being on the first floor right by reception area, it was really quiet and did not hear any coming and goings of other guests. The room was spacious, bunk beds firm and comfortable, with its own outlet and light; AC worked really well. The windows were opaque, so no views, but with plenty of natural light. Bathroom was spacious; toilet, sink and shower/tub areas are separated by doors so each of us could use toilet,bathing, or brushing teeth in privacy at the same time. Toiletries and plenty of towels provided, there is no housekeeping service, but you may switch out for fresh towels if needed. Vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, iron/ironing board, electric kettle, smart tv also found in room. We were out most of the day and ate out, so we did not use the kitchen facilities other than the fridge/freezer for storing water.

5 stars quality & service with affordable price”
The room is big and spacious, beds are comfortable and clean. Location is strategic, walking distance to bus station that can easily link to Kyoto subway station. Upon check in, the front desk helped to arrange shuttle van to send us back to our homestay which is very considerate and helpful. The check in and check out instruction are clear and very easy to follow. Resi Stay was the last hotel we stayed for our 2018 autumn trip, and we ended up our Japan trip with lovely memories with these cozy, comfortable and value for money homestay. I would definitely recommend my friends and will come back to stay again. :)
Thank you so much for your comment. We are glad to hear that you had a good time in our accommodation. We are looking forward to your next stay with us in the future. RESI STAY Reception Counter Kae
Keep in mind, check-in is not done in the corresponding hotel location. But great place to stay.”
Check-in is done in their office near Kyoto Station, regardless of which location you're staying. They will send you the details via email. Plan your trip with this in mind, so you don't have to make a detour all the way to Kyoto Station to check-in at their office. Their office staff was fluent in English, although the ones in the hotel might not be as proficient with it. However, the location staffs did their best to try to understand and accommodate us and we're happy with them. The hotel itself was a great experience, I'm more than satisfied with the stay. The room was comfortable and clean. They have all the amenities I needed, and also easy washing machines to use. While there was nothing fascinating to see from the room window I stayed in, I enjoyed the location which is in the middle of residential neighborhood, I love the ambience. If I were to visit Kyoto again I would consider staying here again, or maybe try their other properties.
Thank you for your review. We look forward to your coming to Kyoto and staying with us again soon.
Good enough for the average traveler”
Apart from the confusing and difficult check-in process (where you're required to go to the Kyoto Station branch of RESI STAY to check in even if you're staying at other branches), as well as the slightly hard to reach (but cozy suburban) location, the stay was pleasant. It's relatively spacious and well furnished. Ideal for short stays as there is no housekeeping service.
Thank you very much for your review on our service, and thank you for your cooperation for our check-in procedure. Hearing about your experience is very helpful for us to increase our guests’ satisfaction during their stay in Kyoto. Thank you very much for choosing us. RESI STAY team
Lovely and clean!”
I absolutely love this hotel. Spacious rooms (by Japanese standards), clean, spotless, bright, compact yet functional. Super comfy beds and location is close to bus stops, and just 1km walk to the Nishiki market. The only thing to remember is you need to collect your keys in the hotel office located near Kyoto station before you can go to the hotel. Will stay here again next time I am in Kyoto.
Thank you very much for your comment. We are happy to hear that you love RESI STAY. Kyoto has beautiful scenery in every seasons. We look forward to seeing you again in Kyoto!
Feels like your staying in a hotel!”
As I said, feels like you are staying in a hotel. Staff are very accommodating. And it was really nice staying here for 2nights. Maybe nextime if I visit again kyoto. Will stay for longer days. I would really highly recoommend it. And they have also lots of branches around kyoto.
Thank you very much for your comment. We appreciate you gave us 10 points! As you mentioned we have 20 accommodations in Kyoto City and 2 more accommodations will be opening soon. We hope you to choose us again when you come back to Kyoto. RESI STAY reception counter
Because the delay of the flight, we could not check in in the Kyoto Station but the Staff at the hotel is very helpful to checking-in, so we did not need to hurry up to Kyoto Station at the morning to Kyoto Station for check-in. Room is very clean and new, bathroom is good and big enough.
Thank you so much for your comment. We are glad to hear that you like our accommodation. Basically that staff doesn't do check in but we can arrange it sometime for special cases. Your tired body must have been refreshed in the big bathroom! We hope you to choose us again in the future. RESI STAY reception counter
This is by far my favorite hotel of my whole Japan trip. The design of the hotel is great. The room has washing machine and you also have a balcony for you to hang your clothes or chill. The room has everything you ever needed in a hotel. I'll come back if I ever visit Kyoto again.

Live like a local in Kyoto”
Very reasonable price. It's right smack in the heartlands so u will feel as though you are living like a local. I chose the room with a combination of futon n bed. There are 3 washing machines n 2 dryers which are free of charge but we were not allowed to use between 11 pm to 7am. That's actually when most people are back. The washing process causes minimal noise disturbance so I would propose the management allow the guests to use it anytime but with the advice to minimise noise. The property is easily accessible by bus from Kyoto station, about 20 minutes. Taxi fare is reasonably priced. So if u have heavy luggage and have 2 to 3 persons, it may be better to take a cab instead. It costs between $USD 12 to 15.
Thank you for your comment! Hearing about your experience is very helpful for us to increase our guests’ satisfaction during their stay in Kyoto. As for the use of washing machine, we would like all guests to sleep well at night not by bothering from the noise. But we will try to keep improving our service and we are looking forward to your next stay at RESISTAY again in the future. RESISTAY Team Megumi
Good Accomdation Experience”
We stayed here for two nights, the friendly staff at both the accommodation and reception were very helpful and patient. The room was new and beautiful. Thank you for such a good experience during our stay in Kyoto.

Resistay Owen was the best!!”
I thoroughly recommend staying here, it's clean, has everything you need, great location and is a home away from home. I won't be staying anywhere else when I am next in Kyoto. Thank you Resistay for such a great quality property.

It was a nice room and clean. There was usually a staff member at the desk even though we check in at Kyoto station. They spoke English and were very helpful. It's located a short walk away from the main parts of town but far from a train or metro station so a taxi is necessary if you have luggage. It is close to bus stops so in Kyoto that's a big deal since everything runs mainly by bus. The complimentary washer/dryer is definitely a highlight and well used by everyone. The bathroom is great! I'd come back.

Nice and decent room. 5 stars for cleanliness ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️”
Stayed for 3 nights. Very convenient as there is a bus stop nearby. Easily accessible around Kyoto area and recommended to buy day pass. Toilet is clean but lack of hanging bar. Suggest to install more hanging hooks.

A good room with good price”
We booked a family room, which is cozy, with kitchen and a good bathroom. Cookies, coffee, towels , and even dipping supplement are provided. Shortcoming: need to check-in at another place (hand in passport and city tourist tax). Apart from that, very good experience in KYOTO...
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We hope to see you again in the future. RESI STAY team
Room was clean and facilities new. Nested in a quiet neighbourhood area.”
Location was a 10 minutes drive away from Kyoto Station, which costs you around 1000 yen. The only complain will be a lack of hanging channels for clothes in the bathroom. Further, the door for bathroom is transparent, which maybe embrassing for some.
Thank you so much for your comment! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed staying at RESI STAY. We are looking forward to seeing you again in Kyoto!
Nice room with good location”
This hotel is not far from bus stop or subway, hotel staff at the counter can speak English. They also provided us a Kyoto map and the bus information that really useful.
