            Excellent for tourism within the area”
            The location is good for JR pass travelers, there are JR bus stops (for Kyoto station) across the street and a train station at 5 min walk. Kyoto station is like 25 min walk. They also offer bike renting for 500 JPY a day, which is AMAZING for Kyoto. I booked room with breakfast included but I didn't realize that there is a proper kitchen in the room, so it would have saved me some money to buy my own breakfast at the 7-eleven across the street and have it in the room. However, breakfast is in the Cafe Root close to the apartment and it was wonderful. Both the room and the bathroom are big and clean. I would definitely recommend it.

            Maybe we were too much for such a small place, but we were disappointed. We didn't really know what to do with our luggage since we we're missing place and we realize on the last day that there were drawers under the bed that could have helped us. My boyfriend and father couldn't close the toilet door since the space was too small for their legs. Also, maybe we're used to more luxury hotels but we find it hard to sleep well with just 1 pillow. We liked the washing machines in our appartement & The staff was nice and spoke a decent english.

            The hotel is like an apartment equipped with all the things a traveller would need. It has a washing machine, kitchen, own cr and shower, a drier for wet clothes and shoes incase it will rain. It is very spacious as well. You can open 4 luggages at the same time. Would definitely gooo back.

            Perfect Facilities and Self Check In Service”
            The house I lived in is just like a suite equipped with full facilities which are able to satisfy the necessary requirements for living, such as, full-automatic washing machine, cooking bench, microwave oven, television and air conditional. Such facilities above are exclusively used by my own rather than shared with others. Thanks to self check in service, I missed the breakfast time without any staff or info card reminding me of when and where to have breakfast, although it was informed on the info page of agoda websites. This is the cons I have to point out.

            We had a good stay in this hotel as the price is very reasonable and they have kitchenette, washing machine, dryer and separate toilet n bathroom. Cleanliness can be improved but other than that everything else was good. I left my phone in the hotel upon checkout and they emailed me through agoda to inform. Keep up the good job! ☺

            It's great value of money! The apartment is clean and spacious. There's a washing machine and cloth drying heater in the bathroom. The staff is very kind and even helping me to make a reservation for a popular restaurant! There was a big problem of check-in. The front desk opens from 09:00 to 18:00. The apartment gave me self check-in instruction because I will checked-in after 18:00. When I checked-in at 22:00, I was shocked that my room key in mailbox was taken by somebody else (passcode of the locker is so easy to guess)! I messaged the staff via Agoda App and didn't expect them to reply because they were supposed to be off. I had no choices but to take the key of the room next to mine (again, simply guess its passcode). One hour later, Apartment replied me via Agoda App and we settled to stay in my "new" room. I will definitely stay again (will guess them to change the passcode of the mailbox).

            Great place, highly recommended”
            Perfect place for a couple and/or small family. Close to public transportation. Convenience stores, Aquarium, some local eateries/shops within walking distance, (10-15 minute walk) to Kyoto station. Check-in/check out was very easy and staff was very helpful with any questions. Small, hipster coffee shop right next door was nice (w/discounts for Apt guests) We did take a taxi from Kyoto station on arrival (to get our bearings) and also when we were heading back to States (too much luggage!), other than that we took the bus, pretty easy system, nice way to see the city, cheap and everyone was helpful if we had any questions if we were unsure of where/how to go. We especially liked the little local places right near the hotel that we discovered. One was a tiny noodle counter, out the door to the left (if u blinked u missed it) and then the other was out to the right and around the corner, a family owned/run little store w/restaurant next door. Highly recommend staying here!

            Excellent access to transport - the bus from Kyoto Station stops right in front of the hotel, bus to Kyoto station and Kawaramachi area is either opposite or at the other corner of the hotel's block. The bus ride to Kyoto station is less than 10 minutes while the ride to Kawaramachi varies between 15 to 30mins depending on traffic. The unit is surprisingly roomy for Japanese standard. I had the double room unit, there is a small kitchen, toilet and showers are separated, the bed is a queen size rather than the semi double size in Japan. Soap and towels are provided, very strong shower, modern shower room that can heat up before you shower or dry up the shower. Will definitely come back again when I visit Kyoto next time!

            We stayed a night with 3 young kids (4/6/9YO). Kyoto City buses are very handy, and there are many bus stops right at Kyoto Ann’s front door. There are direct buses to Nishiki Market and Kyoto Railway Museum. A big 7-11 across the street took care of the next day’s breakfast as well. The room was fully furnished with a small kitchenette, microwave, kettle, washer and bathroom ventilation dryer for overnight drying of clothes. The tub even had a mini-tv 😂 The WC was incredibly tiny though, so don’t expect to shut the door when you’re sitting on the throne!

            The apartment was quite spacious, comfortable enough for two people to cook, place belongings etc. Washing machine and bathroom dryer were great bonus but one downsize was the toilet was a bit small for tall people. More than 1km from the Kyoto station but city buses (with flat fares) are easily accessible from Kyoto station. The staff were also very helpful. Suggestion: It would be great if the info on how to take the city bus from the Kyoto station( which bus platform, bus no, name of the bus stop, fares etc.) could be emailed first beforehand, especially for those who arrive for the first time. Although they provided bus no. and map of the area at the receptionist, people would still get on the bus from the wrong platform because the departure and arrival platforms of the 205 bus are not at the same place. Thank you.

            It's easy to get to different temples by bus. The thing is that getting to the Kyoto Station is only one stop by bus but it costs 230 yen. If you walk to the station, it takes ~20 minutes, which is not ideal. Other than this, our stay was good in general. There is a small TV near the bathtub so you can watch Japanese TV shows while showering.

            Stayed 3 nights in September 2018
            Nice cosy apartment and value for money”
            The room is surprisingly clean and cosy, with a nice kitchen with washing machine/powder, and separate bathroom and toilet. It’s ideal for 3-4 pax looking for a budget stay. The down side is the room is quite small so there might not be enough space to pack your luggage. Another inconvenience is it is far from Kyoto station and need to take bus 205 or 208 if making day trips to other cities. If just travel within kyoto, the bus stops are just super accessible and we could easily purchase one day kyoto pass directly from the bus drivers.
