“Very equipped apartments, excellent location for discovering Kyoto on bike and foot”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Very well equipped modern Japanese apartments, very clean and very quiet. Very conveniently located for discovering Kyoto (biking or walking). The path along the river makes an excellent north-south connection for bikes. Bikes were available at the property.
We had a small problem with the lock of one the bikes, but this was solved immediately. There may be more 'typical' accommodation available, but this one is really value for money

“A wonderful week in Kyoto”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

The Gion Apartments provided an excellent base for our visit to Kyoto. The apartment we stayed in was exactly as described, and all of the appliances and furnishings were clean and worked well.

We were very impressed at how easy it was to make the booking and, once in Kyoto, to find the building and to use the self-checkin system. The location is fine - we were able to walk to many of the places we wanted to visit, or find bus or train connections within walking distance.

The apartment is small, and is most suited for two people. We were joined by a third person for the last three days, and found we had to juggle the bedding and luggage a little, but it didn't detract significantly from our stay.

I would certainly recommend these apartments to anyone visiting Kyoto. It is much better than staying in a hotel if you are spending more than a few days in the city.
