The SpaceThe apartment is a spacious 62sqm, with one large bedroom/living room housing a full double bed and a sofa bed which can cater for a third guest when necessary. The apartment also features a separated kitchen/dining area with the shower/bathroom and toilet facilities on the opposite end of the apartment. It is an extremely comfortable space for two persons while also being sufficiently large enough for three persons to use as an economic way to explore this great town!
The apartment is in a premium location, in the heart of Kyoto city - 9 minutes (700m) walk from the primary Shijo Subway and Hakyu Karasuma Station hubs as well as an 8 minute walk from Karasumaoike subway station. Both subway stations can be reached directly from Kyoto JR Station, although the recommended option if you are with luggage would be to take a taxi from JR Kyoto Station (around $10).
The apartment is in a prime location from which to enjoy the town - a lot more convenient than the location of the main JR Kyoto Station, a common mistake from first time travelers to Kyoto.
A pocket wifi device will be provided to give you both internet access in the room and also as you travel around town, so you can plan your trip on the go!
Smoking is permitted on the balcony.
