I didn't aware of the check-in time when I book. Due to we are arrive Osaka in the mid night hence we decided to overnight at the Airport and depart to Kyoto by earliest train.
Of course they allow us to check-in earlier if there is no other guest on that day, but then they offered me to check-in with a very reasonable price. Which is win-win situation. So me and my family would have a good rest after a hectic day at the airport.

We are so happy and enjoy the stay! Each of my family have a very good time!
Definitely we will re-visit again!

Thanks Kyoto Explorer

I rated all 5 stars because this stay is really worth the price I've paid!

As per describe, the house really close to Yasaka Shrine! Its just a few minutes walk to the nearest train/ bus station.

But you need to check-in & check-out at the office before you can check in the stay.
Luckily their office is just opposite of the Kyoto station, if you do not carry too many luggage,I will suggest you to take bus to the stay after you take the key.
We chose to take train and walk for 10 minutes to the keihan line. Which is very tiring.

Lastly, the tatami room was awesome! We are so happy and enjoy the stay! Each of my family have a very good rest!
Definitely we will re-visit again!

Thanks Kyoto Explorer

This house is absolutely fantastic and in the most perfect position in Gion. The large bedroom downstairs easily sleeps 4 but could sleep 5 as one of the beds is a double bed. Upstairs is a traditional room with the mattresses on the floor ( not as comfortable as a real bed). The lounge converts to a double bed. There is no toaster. The only thing I didn't like was we had to find an office building in Kyoto (across from the station) when we arrived to get the key. This was not so easy.We did not know this until we had booked and payed. We have booked many properties around the world using Homeaway and google maps will always get us there but in Japan it is not so easy. The people were very friendly and helpful once we found them but it was stressful finding them.

What a great location! Just a block away from a huge shopping area and restaurants. The subway station is about a 5 minute walk. Our host was so helpful! They even gave us extra tips of what we can do around town. They always were attentive to all of our questions. The house is big! Very spacious! We absolutely loved it!
