We stayed in the Suoan Machiya for seven nights as part as our honeymoon tour of Japan and highly recommend it as an ideal base in Kyoto. The house is stunningly furnished with traditional tatami floors and seating, alongside enormous and comfy twin beds and a luxurious modern bathroom. We loved the deep stone bath!
