This house is located in traditional quiet street. The day we arrived, a very nice neighbor who work in a restaurant leaded us to house. Every part of this house is exactly same as pictures that we saw on internet. Even more than our expectation. The equipments are advance in a historical house. Decorations and daily things are delicate and thoughtful. Tableware in pantry provided all things you may need. We are so enjoy to be here to feel how local Kyoto people live. The Japanese style garden is my favorite part in this house. First floor has one room for guests to sleep on floor(2-4persons). Second floor has one bedroom with two single beds. And one room empty(could be bedroom). Two washroom in first floor. Okay, hope that you guys could come and discover by your own. we are strongly recommend to stay in Akane-An. light-proof curtain in second floor room has not been provided. 這棟房子隱匿於京都交錯縱橫的街道中。我們到達的當日,找不到房子時,恰巧一位在附近的料理人多次幫助,帶領我們找到房子。他真的超好人。這個房子的每一部分都與網絡提供的照片一般無二。甚至是超越我們的期待。這傳統的房子裡所有設備器具都很先進。裝飾和日常用品都是精緻而貼心的。在廚房的餐具廚具應有盡有。如果你想體驗日本本地人最傳統的生活方式,應該選擇這裡。房子的日式庭院是我的最愛! 一樓有一間和室可以供2-4人打地鋪睡覺。二樓右手邊有一間房,有兩張單人床。還有一個房間在左邊,是空置的和室可打地鋪。一樓有兩個洗手間。剩下的就交給大家來感受和發現了。我們非常推薦這家京都的民宿。二樓房間沒有完全遮光的窗簾,早上太陽升起會很亮。

The house is quite impressing, cosy and full of historical flavour, made of woods but well equipped and easy for going out as well as self-service. It takes 2 minutes to walk to the nearest bus stops on Horigawa Dori (堀川通)or Oike Dori (御池通). You will feel very convenient if you have a bus one-day pass as you can go to almost any main traffic hubs / attractions from those bus stops. The distance for Nijojo castle (二条城) and the subway stations is also within 5 minutes walk. There is a big supermarket 2 bus stops away, and you can buy some local food and try to cook it by yourself in the house. The best time for us during this trip was when sitting together in the washitsu, drinking tea and having wagashi (菓子) bought from Oimatu (老松), and listening to the sound of rain drops from the yard, all thing quiet and beautiful. I love this Akane-an and will try more Machiya accommodations next time I coming to Japan.
