Ivy’s Place is great - great location for exploring the old town - and a simple bus ride from the train station.

Ivy is a wonderful host and her apartment is simply brilliant. We have stayed in Airbnb places all over the world and several in Japan. Ivy's is one of the best. The decor is modern, amenities work very well and Ivy is an accommodating host. The location of the apartment is superb – a road with plenty of restaurants and shops is perhaps a 1 minute walk away. There are also very frequent buses to many places in Kyoto. I would recommend this place very highly to anyone spending time in Kyoto. Thank you Ivy for a wonderful stay.

Neat, tidy clean studio flat. Very small but beautifully maintained. The location was fantastic - ideal for sight-seeing and quiet and peaceful at night. The flat was the perfect base for a busy Kyoto itinerary.

Ivy's places is super compact but contains everything you need for a good stay in Kyoto. It is probably only suitable for a maximum of four days stay as you could feel quite cramped. The apartment is clean and the bed is really comfortable, all in all it represents very good value for money. This area of Kyoto has many renowned temples and sights but it is really only bustling in the day. At night it is very quiet which is great but you will struggle to find somewhere to eat past 8 pm. Be like a local and eat at 6-7 pm and you should be better provided for.

We had a great time at Ivy's place. We had rented cycles so the location was perfect as a base to explore central Kyoto and temples further out. The flat was very clean and looked exactly as in photos. We had no communication issues and everything went smoothly. I'd stay there again!

Ivy's place was really nice - though very cosy for the price. We really enjoyed our stay in Kyoto and would definitely recommend cycle hire as a means to see the city. Getting around from this location was great and Arabica Coffee close by is an absolute must! The apartment itself looks and feels really nice, and there is a noticeable attention to detail. We struggled slightly as we were a couple, travelling with large bags. This space is ideal for an individual with lots of luggage, or a couple who are travelling light!
