"Located along the little Nishi-Kiyamachi street, a short 8 minute walk from Gion-Shijo Station. Hidden away in the old quarter, just minutes away from the city center's hustle and bustle. Enjoy a drink at our lobby bar, reflective of the warmth and nature of Kyoto. It is our pleasure to welcome you, with our international staff and Japanese hospitality.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

Excellent location. Spotlessly clean. Beautifully furnished with traditional accents such as the paper window screens yet very well-equipped. Nice touch with the kimono and smart phone. Wonderful place, would very much like to return.

The apartment had everything necessary and in excellent condition, thoroughly clean. They had instructions for all the appliances. Only problem: Understanding signs for the washing machine and climatization, which were written in japanese symbols, which they solved. The staff was extremely friendly and tried always to help. They told us to ask for anything additional we could need. When we asked, they complied ! We felt very welcomed.

Dear FGC1356, Thank you for your kind feedback. We are happy to hear you had a good experience with us. Yes, washing machine and AC can be a bit tricky to handle, that is why we make a point in offering English, Chinese, Korean, translations on how to use them to our guests. Of course we are always eager to help you in person, too. Thank you again for staying with us during you time in Kyoto. We hope you can come back, soon. Kind regards, My K House Team

We loved this place - it was just beautifully and thoughtfully designed. It was the first place we stayed in which felt like someone's home, but where that someone had impeccable taste and had also provided for your every comfort! We booked a Deluxe Twin Room and were absolutely blown away by the serenity and spaciousness of the room, plus the laundry facilities, huge bathroom and kitchen. All the staff members we met were friendly, helpful and had perfect English skills. We even tried umeshu for the first time on the house! It was the perfect location - quiet but well within walking distance of the famous spots. This place is a gem and we would highly recommend it!

Dear dominiquemullon, Thank you for your kind comments. We are happy that you liked our complimentary smartphone! Free wi-fi can be surprisingly difficult to find in Japan so the phone can be very handy. We hope you can visit us again, soon. Best regards,
