Gojo Machiya Samurai Machiya was an place to stay. It was walking distance to most of the main attraction and when a temple was a little further, the house was located within footsteps to the local bus stop. The house itself has everything you could possibly need and it's very comfortable and warm during the colder months. Definitely enjoyed the floor heating and the option to choose between a western bed and tatami. What pleased us the most was how authentic it looked like. Anything from the wedding kimono, samurai armor, and the geisha doll, and antiquities really added to the this unique experience! The hosts Akiko and Patrick were extremely helpful and I would highly recommend staying with them!
Our family of 4 loved our stay at Kyoto Gojo Samurai Machiya. After our tiny Tokyo hotel, the house felt wonderfully spacious. Warm, comfortable and fully equipped to make our stay memorable.
A great place to stay for a family for a few days or a week in Kyoto. In the direction of Higashiyama, close to the Gion area full of traditional houses and costumes. Highly recommended.
This townhouse was as good as advertised and very conveniently located relative to the train station and some of the sightseeing attractions (i.e., within walking distance of the Kyoto National museum and the Kiyomizu-dera temple). We booked through Tripadvisor and the process was safe and easy. The owner (Akiko) and the staff was very responsive to our needs, first to our questions prior to and during our trip, and later to our requests during our stay. The townhouse was furnished with modern amenities (such as floor heating) and all appliances and systems were in good working order, and that made our stay comfortable. We highly recommend this place for a Kyoto stay!
Close to park for kids, good access taxis, trains etc..Well equipped with modern amenities- nice Japanese bath. Quiet and plenty of character. Loed it=for the family.
Good to see such a wonderful restoration- & being able to stay in it.
