10+ Impressed for so many reasons!
10+ - The team at The Machiya Kamiumeya absolutely made our stay in Kyoto exceed all our expectations. The accomodation is superb (great beds - that's a benchmark for us) - we really loved being on a quiet residential street - yet so close to great restaurants, bars and shops. Also great proximity to a range of public transport options - which enabled us to get around Kyoto with efficiency and ease. Hands down it was the extremely helpful, cheerful and generous team who helped us with our stay not only during our visit, but also in the many weeks before we arrived that made this stay so exceptional. They booked restaurants (after suggesting some great and very reasonably priced local places), helped us get advance reservations for temples that needed to be booked before we arrived - and continued to give us advice and support through the whole trip. Definitely the place we'll return to when next in Kyoto.

A Jewel in Kyoto
As with many small, boutique accommodation in Kyoto, this hotel is located in a very residential neighborhood amongst quaint ryokan-style houses. However it is also convenient to walking into town as well as accessing 24-hour convenience stores for your daily sundries and snacks. The staff is kind and helpful, including English-speaking members. Western-style rooms are less expensive than the Japanese tatami rooms. During our entire time there we never saw or heard another guest, even though the hotel was full. A wonderful find and worthy of all the praise bestowed!

Will stay here again and again
Love this hotel! I stay here all the time between business trips. Clean rooms and bathrooms, delicious coffee provided, quiet, and fabulous customer service. Laundry onsite that makes your clothes smell amazing. The after hours check-in process is incredibly detailed and appreciated. The staff is friendly and very helpful. Fast WiFi!
