Oasis in Gion
Perfect for 2 couples for 5 days in Kyoto. 2 toilets and shared bath. Adequate kitchen facilities and comfy lounge. Washing machine is also a dryer but the cycle is very long (4hours!) and clothes came out smelling dank and mouldy. Better to air on hangers while you're out. The Japanese decor is wonderful . Checkin involves 2 staff of KMI coming to show you the ropes etc. allow 20 -30 mins.v professional and friendly staff Easy access to higashiyama, gion and downtown . Would readily stay again :)

Thank you for your review of your stay with Machiya Residence Inn! We are happy to hear that you and your guests enjoyed your time in our traditional Japanese house, "Gion Minami Banka". We hope the traditional machiya was everything you had expected and more! As you have mentioned, yes, the dryer function tends to take a little more time as hang drying clothes is more common in Japan. We providing hangers and drying racks for all guests in each of our properties should you choose to do so during your next visit! Thank you again for your kind review, and we look forward to welcoming you back again in the near future. Kind Regards, Machiya Residence Inn
