The location of Tommy's place (SM2) is really great. It's around the center of Kyoto city, easy to get to the subway and bus stations. Actually, you can even walk to some famous attractions. The bathroom is kind of small ,but the space is enough for me. All the facilities we can use are on the lists on the website. There's a restaurant under it, some customers could talk loudly outside at night, but not for too long, so that doesn't bother. Tommy offers a detailed instruction of his place, including how to get there, how to get the key, how to use the facilities, and the information of the surroundings. Very useful. And we really enjoy our trip in Kyoto this time. Although we didn't meet Tommy in person, we appreciate him and all he offered.

Good value for a centrally located apartment in Tokyo. Apartment is small better for 2 people. 3 people with luggage was a tight fit. Close to public transportation and nishiki market! Great location. Bathroom is incredibly small and it was difficult to take a shower. Other than that it was clean and convenient.

Tommy was a great host, providing prompt and useful tips to ensure our stay at his flat can be as hassle-free as possible. The location was good enough, with many choices of eateries, restaurants, supermarkets nearby and Subway station just under 10 minutes away. The pocket WIFI provided by Tommy was certainly handy when we needed to for maps and directions to our destinations. The flat was well maintained and spacious enough for 3 of us. The only issues we had during the 5-night stay was (a) the noise level from the restaurants downstairs as well as from neighbours upstairs (heavy footsteps and general movements while they were in the flat) causing disturbance to our sleep; and (b) the lack of lift facilities in that building posed real challenges for us, 3 petite ladies, when we had to carry our suitcases up and down the 3rd storey apartment. Perhaps this is the general issues with Kyoto apartments (I'm not sure) - that is, the thin flooring and no lifts.

Tommy's place was walkable and pretty close to the subway station, which was really appreciated since we had to walk with our luggage. There were places to eat and convenience stores nearby. If you don't mind walking, Gion is do-able by foot. It's a nice scenic option. Though you can always take public transit. Tommy's place was comfortable, clean, and provided everything we needed. Rain was in the forecast and there were umbrellas for us.

Clean and basic apartment. Convenient location though apartment is better for 2-3 pax max otherwise no space to walk or place luggage when all 4 sleeping places are used. Bathroom is slightly bigger than airplane. A challenge for a EUR18. Shower does not have constant flow of hot water. Laundromat on 6th floor has a washing machine but dryer doesn't work.
