Very good value for super clean spacey apartment. No bathroom, but there is options available. We were happy to stay and browse Kyoto by provided bikes.

This is a great appartement. It is very central and close to station. You can use bikes and be very flexibel to go anywhere. The place is very spacious. For bath you have to go to Sento, it was very relaxed to go there and Masa provided us with all necessities to go there. Masa was also very helpfull, he provided us with a lot of usefull information and even helped us finding a vegetarian restaurant. We would recommend staying here!

Masa's instructions to find the building were very clear. The location is great and the place is really large. The sento experience was fantastic so the absence of bathroom is actually a plus. Masa's mother, who welcomed us, is a sweetheart. It was a great pleasure to speak a little Japanese with her. Masa's sister was so nice and helpful too. Excellent AirBNB !

Good location that's 5 minutes to Nijo Station (2 stops from Kyoto station). Masa allowed us to drop off our luggage earlier with his mom. When we didn't come back at 2pm to check in she got worried. She called Masa when we told her I lost my wallet. I believe the room is meant to be an office space, but regardless it is spacious with lots of natural light. Not having a full bathroom is ok for a short stay and a good experience if you want to try the sento nearby. It can become inconvenient if you plan to stay long or travel with high maintenance people.

Location close to station. But no hot water at wastafel so it's hard to wash the dishes because so cold. The toilet not same like the picture. The toilet is Japanese style (squat toilet) n outside of room (share with others room).

Great place, nice and big. Although there are no toilets in the apartment per se, it's not difficult to use them because it's literally next door. The upstairs toilet is a squat toilet but downstairs is the standard sit down one. Great value and great to try the sento experience. Good for short stays. The sento is 430 yen a pop but Masa provides everything from towels to body soap/hair products. Masa has really thought through everything, there's a cell phone for you to use and he's happy for you to call him if you need help. There's also portable WiFi and a very handy book with fantastic instructions in English and with pictures. We didn't have time to use the free bikes provided but would have loved to have taken a ride around the nearby noji castle! The room is close to noji station which is JR.

Masa's house was absolutely fantastic. The location is very central and you can easily get on a public transportation from here. Many restaurants and convenience stores around. The room is very clean and comfortable. Masa provides bathing soap and towels. The public bath experience was amazing. You get to indulge in the culture and enjoy it in the process. He also provides us to use his bikes for free which was a major plus. Thank you so much for the stay!
