Great location and huge space!
Loved the area and really enjoyed how close this place is to the train line.
Cool spot, excellent host, great location.
My sons and I really enjoyed staying at this location. We are big guys and had no issues with the space. The beds were super comfortable. The shower was great, really hot water with excellent pressure. The apartment is less than 5 mins from the metro and finding a taxi was never an issue. Super markets and drug stores are 5 to 8 mins away respectfully.
Sean, the host, is really amazing very accommodating and helpful. He’s even created a website with his recommendations for food and the like. You can’t go wrong, if I ever find myself in Kyoto again I hope this apartment is available.
Sean, thank you for everything your apartment made our stay in Kyoto that much better.
Top place to stay
Really amazing space which is very well positioned for sightseeing. The host was great at communicating and was very helpful with local information. We would stay again
Great location and host - highly recommend!
The apartment is exactly as advertised. It’s in a quiet neighbourhood, within walking distance to a number of attractions, and on the main subway & bus routes to get to the vast majority of attractions and hang-out spots. There's plenty of room (especially by Japanese standards) and all the basics. We especially appreciated the coffee and cream, and all the soaps/shampoo/etc. Sean is a wonderful host. His electronic site/map was super helpful throughout our stay, and he was incredibly responsive both before and during our trip.
Some general Kyoto tips:
- Subway and busses were super easy to use, and the combo pass paid for itself
- If you want to dine at a specific restaurant, I highly recommend making reservations. You’ll never go hungry as there are tons of options, but you may not get your first (or third) choice if you just walk in (although maybe Golden Week made things worse for us). Sean is more than willing to help with reservations if the restaurant only speaks Japanese (and you don’t).
- Even in crowded touristy places there are amazing spots of peace & quiet. Ask Sean about his favorites before you head out.
Enjoy the stay!
Overall great place & super hospitable, helpful host
Moon Room is conveniently located & charming & modern in its decor. It’s perfect for 4 adults or less. I would say any more would be a tighter squeeze unless everyone knows & likes each other a lot! A full sized bed next to a twin are shown in the main photo & behind the brick wall is an additional small living room/sleep space. The kitchenette is truly a small kitchenette with an electric burner, toaster oven & mini dorm size fridge. No microwave. Good for breakfasts. Not for preparing say a dinner for a few people.
The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is while the space was mostly clean, the areas under the bed & on the shelving area (dishes, cookware) were dusty. I know Sean has the room cleaned professionally but his cleaning crew could be more thorough. It’s obvious that the kitchen isn’t used often with many good, nearby food options, but it would be nice to have clean cookware when it’s needed & not have dust when something drops under or at the head of the bed area.
Otherwise, Sean is a gem. He is the most responsive, kind & gracious host. He was quick to respond to every and any question or issue we had prior & during our stay. He also provided lots of info about the area & detailed instructions on how to locate his place giving options should we be traveling light vs carrying lots of heavy luggage. He also offered to help my daughter who inquired about getting tickets printed to a venue. We SO appreciated his conscientiousness, accessibility & his follow up. For that reason, we would happily rent from him again. Thank you again, Sean!
Great apartment, good location and attentive host.
Fairly large apartment, very close to Imperial Palace, Nijo Castle, subway station and major bus routes. Sean was very attentive and responded quickly when we had a question.
Nuestro apartamento está situado en el barrio de Nakagyo-ku de Kyoto (significado literal es el centro). A diferencia de otros B & B y casas de huéspedes cerca de la estación de Kioto o Higashiyama, Nakagyo es bastante central en lo que se refiere a restaurantes y lugares de entretenimiento (y he preparado wifi de bolsillo, así como una guía en línea / un mapa casero con destinos gourmet / cafés / bares / tiendas recomendados). Nuestro espacio está a sólo cinco minutos a pie de la estación de Marutamachi, en la principal línea de metro norte-sur (Karasuma), y unos diez minutos de Karasuma-Oike, donde las dos líneas de metro se cruzan, marcando así el centro de Kyoto.
Castillo de Nijo y Palacio Imperial están a sólo diez minutos paseos, mientras Higashiyama y sus complejos maravillosos templos están a menos de una hora a pie (más rápido en autobús).
El barrio en sí, aunque muy cerca de Centro de la ciudad y sus atracciones vertiginosas, es tranquilo y tradicional y no es raro ver a mujeres en kimono o monjes cantando. Muchas de las casas Machiya del barrio se especializan en las industrias de los viejos tiempos, como el grabado, la tala de árboles y de tatami-productores, así como tiendas de venta de té, marfil, las muñecas, las hierbas medicinales, y el más antiguo productor de incienso de Japón.
Sin embargo, la sala de Luna es también un lugar maravilloso para relajarse en un día ventoso o perezoso, contemplar, relajarse, o placer en el romance de la vida. Diseñado específicamente por un artista local, no hay nada como nuestro espacio en todas Kyoto. Es parte de una primera ola de lo que esperamos que sea el renacimiento de un diseñador en esta ciudad tan antigua.
