Compact, 1-room studio apartment, redecorated, with a SUPER view directly onto Nijo Castle. Just 5 mins on foot from Nijo Station, (JR, Subway and many bus lines). 2 stops from Kyoto Station. Direct line to Arashiyama
Supermarkets, restaurants, all nearby in this clean, safe area.
2 FREE bikes and free portable MiFi*
This little jewel of a studio has everything you should need to make your stay in Kyoto enjoyable. Just opening the curtains and looking at the castle across the street is pure KYOTO!! Peace and green in the city.
The balcony is the perfect place for a well-earned beer! You can put a tray out (sit it on the clothes rack), lean on the balcony edge and watch the world go by or relax on the chairs, sip your morning coffee and drink in the amazing view.
Watching all those joggers will make your beer (or coffee) taste even better!
Coffee and Japanese tea provided!
There are plenty of dishes, a toaster, electric kettle and microwave oven. Buy your fresh ingredients at the nearby supermarket and make a delicious, healthy breakfast! (or lunch, or dinner :-)
Feel like joining the joggers? No problem, you have a washing machine to wash your gear and a separate dryer to ...um...dry them.
Feel free to pop your towels into the dryer pre- or post-shower to fluff them up!
Bathroom and toilet are separate, so no soggy toilet paper problems ;-)
Unlimited high speed WiFi in the room.
A separate MiFi router* for outside! (Don't use it in the room :-)
Bluetooth speaker to stream your music to :-)
*(see notes below)
The apartment is ALL yours!
Interakcija s gostima
I work, so can usually not be contacted before 1pm on weekdays, but can usually manage to reply with the hour.
If I can, I'd love to meet up for a drink, coffee, chat... if your time in Kyoto allows. There SO much to do, you probably won't have time! lol
I'm very happy to answer all your questions, so don't hesitate to ask.
Je parle francais aussi, si ca peut vous rassurer :-)
The apartment has unlimited WIFI, so you can watch your favourite Netflix / Youtube or streaming site etc whenever you want!!
There's a Pocket router which is yours to use outside (use the regular WiFi IN the room) during your stay, free of charge.
* However, just a few points:
- there's a 5 Gb monthly cap. Plenty to allow use of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps, social media etc, but NOT to stream movies while on the train.
- If a previous guest has used up all the bandwidth, I will do my very best to get you sorted, but can't make any guarantees.
- If you NEED to be online while out and about, I strongly suggest finding an alternative online service and using THIS router as a bonus, allowing a second person a bit of independence. :-)
I really want you to feel at home, so not many rules:
-shoes off in the apartment
-no smoking in the apartment (but ok on the balcony - just use the ashtray)
-be considerate of the neighbours and the environment
