Good 6.0
Just ok. Yes the location is great. But the place itself is kind of underwhelming for the price. Nobody checks you in and after a long day of travel it’s a bummer to have to figure everything out yourself without any human interaction. The place is smaller than the pictures look. The set up is just not that comfortable for the price. The open air tub isn’t that useable as it’s in a bedroom and not a bath area. The toilet and shower space is small and the outdoor table is unusable in colder seasons like November. It’s also awkward that one bedroom is outside the rest of house and other bedroom shares wall with toilet & is super small. The washer/dryer worked great!

Nice clean house. Too expensive compared to hotels in area. Great area close to shrines, restaurants, and subways. Not enough privacy shades in 2nd bedroom separated from main living area.

It advertised 2 bedrooms, but the second is the living room that needs tables and chairs to be removed and futon mattresses laid down

An amazing machiya style house located in the heart of Gion. We spotted geishas walking down the street while wandering around the neighborhood. Super interesting experience and two thumbs up for the relaxing bath salt and deep bathtub!

Great place
It is a beautiful place that is close to everything, has plenty of space and a fluent check in/check out process. Highly recommended! The host replied email really fast and the whole communication process is very smooth. We stayed at the second-floor. The first floor entrance does have a lot of mosquitos so be careful. Overall we are very satisfied with the place.
