    Property description
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 3
    For the independent traveler to Kyoto looking to live very much as a local, the Gion Apartments are a perfect alternative to run-of-the-mill hotels in the same price category. Each apartment is outfitted with the same basics that one has for apartment living…a fully stocked kitchen, laundry facilities, and more space than one finds in a typical hotel room. The apartments are furnished with a careful eye to aesthetics as well as comfort.

    Provided for your comfort are two twin beds, with an additional single futon available upon request. In addition there is a sofa with coffee table, a small dining table with chairs, fully equipped kitchen, and washer and dryer. Also there is a television as well as a high-speed wireless internet connection.

    In terms of size, the apartments are roughl...

    Additional Location Information
    The location is within a modern residential apartment building located in the southern part of Gion, a historic neighborhood located in the Higashiyama district, in central Kyoto. Gion is recognized as one of the most desirable areas for visitors to stay in. As one of the best known geisha districts in Japan, it has many carefully preserved historic buildings, as well as an abundance of temples and tourist sites within walking distance. The back streets of the Gion area are about as charming and atmospheric as you’ll find…perfect for a romantic evening stroll. Shops, restaurants, and access to trains, buses, and taxis are just steps away. Kyoto’s bustling commercial district (Shijo/Kawaramachi) is just 15 minutes’ walk away. Kyoto Station is 15-20 minutes away by bus, or 10 minutes by taxi.

We stayed at the Goin Apartment for 4 nights - very clean and comfy beds. The washing machine with dryer was a bonus. Locating the apartment for self-check-in was a bit of a challenge but locals were very helpful with directions (street names are all in Japanese). Our stay in this apartment was a memorable experience for us as it... more

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful apartment. It was very easy to communicate and make reservation with Mr. Curtis. There was just one minor issue with the accommodation setup for a 3rd person of our party, and the Apt. manager, Ms. Junko quickly resolved it. She was also very responsive to our other inquiries that we had. Thank... more
