What a lovely old house, super charming, elegant and well-maintained. We booked the whole place for just the two of us, but I can see six people staying most comfortably here. The location is superb, with many major tourist sites within walking distance. Maeda Coffee Shop is just a few steps up the street and it serves the most amazing breakfasts -- croque monsieur, BELT sandwiches, etc. The futons were fluffy and comfortable and we didn't miss our beds at all. But my favourite part of the house is actually the bathroom, specifically the soaking tub, which I used every night. I would love to install one back home! The host was also very gracious in sending us some strawberries and a small souvenir during our stay. The only minor quibbles I have are with (1) the complicated check-in process, which involves getting to a cafe to meet someone before being put into a cab to go to the actual house, (2) lack of maps of the surrounding area (we wandered around quite a while looking for a laundromat and dinner the first night, and had problems getting back when we tried to take a taxi), and (3) lack of wifi (think we were too spoiled by the previous place we stayed in in Tokyo which provided pocket wifi). But overall, we are very satisfied and happy with our stay and would highly recommend this to all our friends headed to Kyoto. Special thanks to Hiroko for being so nice and helpful!

The house has a superb location as it's just 2-3 mins away from a few must go tourist spots. The proximity to supermarkets and a range of restaurants which means that we can either cook in the house or dine out. The owner is also kind and helpful - we met him at his café and he has prepared all the instructions and paperwork for us to use the facilities in the house. Worth mentioning - the hot bath in the house is excellent. It's clean and automatic with constant temperature! My husband didn't even want to come out of it!
