Perfect location and traditional home
I loved staying at this property with my Mom and 2 daughters - it was quiet yet very close to the walkable Kyoto tourist area, the the house was extremely well supplied, spotless, and spacious. Just perfect for 4 people.
Wonderful location and way to experience traditional Japan!
The location of this property could not be better literally right in the heart of Gion. Gives the ability to walk all over the historic neighborhood and enjoy everything that is traditional Japan. We love being able to walk to the Starbucks every morning and to taste all the street food. The property is very clean and everything is accurate and as presented. Check in was super easy as was check out. We miss this Kyoto house as my children called it. Do not hesitate to stay here totally worth it.
Great traditional house so near tourist area but very quiet. Good water pressure, luxurious and plentiful towels and bedding, and efficient air conditioning and heat throughout.
Lovely, spacious traditional home within walking distance to many Kyoto attractions.
Comfy mattresses and nice warm quilts, very quiet yet right near busy tourist streets of small shops and restaurants.
The best way to experience Kyoto
What a fabulous way to spend a week in Kyoto. This is a traditional-style Japanese house, with three tatami-mat rooms and stacks of futons and quilts. It has a large modern kitchen and dining area, and a Western bathroom, with a clothes washer (no dryer, but plenty of drying racks). Two of the sleeping rooms are on the upper floor, reached by a steep but manageable staircase.
Somehow, even if you normally go for modern, Western-style rentals, Kyoto seems best appreciated in a traditional, yet comfortable, place like this.
The house is in a mixed area of traditional houses, tourist-oriented shops, a few small restaurants (don't miss Omen ramen) and a couple of luxury hotels. At night, it's very quiet. There's a bus stop (going straight to the JR station, and connecting to everywhere else) a 10 minute walk away, and a cab stand even closer.
Google maps knows where the house is, but seems to have trouble with directions (sending your taxi down a pedestrian-only street). The owners provide a detailed map, and instructions for your taxi driver in Japanese. Be sure to print it out at home.
Highly, highly recommended.
Traditional Charm and Great Location!
The Kyoto Nene House was perfect for the 5 of us. It offers both a traditional feel, but with all the modern conveniences. Nobu-san met us at the house shortly after arrival and thoroughly explained how to operate the AC and everything we needed to know about the house. Nobu was also very helpful in providing a map, bus route, and lay of the local area. The house is very clean, cozy, and stocked with plenty of towels, bedding, and a fully equipped kitchen. The shower has great water pressure which is always an added plus. The location is perfect as its in walking distance to shrines, temples, and lots of shopping and food. Also within walking distance are 2 convenience stores and a 24 hour grocery store which offers a wonderful assortment of sushi/sashimi and various cooked food. It was perfect for those days when everyone wanted something different and you wanted to just eat in. I definitely recommend staying here. We loved our stay here!
Other Activities: There are so many temples and shrines.
