I would not recommend staying at Kyoto Machiya Fukune. The staff is very nice, the tubs are pretty, and the place is clean and well-located. But if I was staying in the area again, I would book an upscale Japanese hotel with a bath instead. It was loud. The tea ceremony was not actually a tea ceremony. Dinner was nicely presented and tasted good, but the parts of it that were intended to be hot were cold. The Japanese style breakfast was great. But still, the overall experience was average — and it is too pricey to justify the expense.

Location is a far walk from train station, its subjective but it’s about a 12 min walk. We paid about $950 sin dollars for a night to accommodate 2 adults and 2 teens. Two persons have to sleep on level 1, at living area while two others on level 2. The stairs up to level 2 is way too steep, especially when you want to get down. Be really careful. The wash basin area on level 2 was not cleaned properly. It was dusty and have mold-looking stuff in corners. It is otherwise quite modern as it has toiletries and stuff. I find the place tight with not much room for 4 luggage. The staff are friendly although you don’t know where they are stationed as you could only reached out to them over phone at a unmanned reception station. The lady whom came over to teach us how to make green tea was very nice and speaks good English.

Wonderful wonderful property. We only stayed one night and it was not enough. Great location off the beaten track but close enough to the subway and buses and also within walking distance to Nishiki and the main shopping area. Our welcome was awesome, as was the breakfast. The complementary drinks are a really nice touch. A really beautiful building, my seven year old nephew wanted to live there! Lovely outside bath, great inside bathroom with a wooden bath tub. We could not fault this wonderful local business - just don't stay for just one night!!

After staying at minshukus, ryokans and western-style hotels over the last several days, it was a pleasure to end our Japan stay with 2 nights at Kyoto Machiya Fukune. The 2 of us appreciated the extra space of the Sangen machiya compared to our previous lodgings to just chill out, especially when soaking in your personal outdoor hot water (not onsen) bath or the indoor hinoki bath and looking out onto the compact zen garden. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms modern and clean. The included mini-bar (Asahi beer, sake, soft drinks and water) was an unexpected bonus! The welcome tea ceremony with traditional sweets (much better than that offered with the included entry price at the Okochi Sanso Garden in Arashiyama) was a far superior greeting than fronting a hotel reception desk even if one has to wait (about 10 mins) for Miki to arrive (which was forewarned in the pre-stay info); we were informed of our security code when we rang (using the complimentary phone in the separate arrival area) and could access the machiya while waiting. Miki was very helpful with local restaurant and sightseeing tips. Excellent pre-stay information was provided via email from Kyoto Machiya Fukune. While we didn’t use the laundry (complimentary) we did make use of the locker, which we found could store 2 large suitcases and 2 carry-on luggage with room leftover for shopping bags. It cost us ¥1500 for taxi/uber from JR Kyoto stn to the machiya. Once there it is only several minutes’ walk to various train stns or bus stops. Nishiki mkt’s western entrance is about a 10min walk away. This was my 3rd time in Kyoto with the goal to visit sights we hadn’t seen previously like Arashiyama’s bamboo grove and Fushimi Inari shrine. The Randen line’s Shijo-Omiya stn is just over 10mins walk away and the tram takes you into the heart of Arashiyama’s shopping strip, the Kimino forest and near the Tongetsu-kyo bridge. Then take your time to walk to the bamboo grove via Tenryo-ji shrine. They say it best to get to the grove early to beat the tourists, but it rained in the morning, so we took our time and got to the grove about lunch-time. While crowded, it wasn’t as packed as what we thought it would be, given it was a Sunday and also ‘golden week’ (maybe people were eating lunch). We also walked to and visited the Nison-in temple that was recommended by Miki; she highlighted the moss that covered a lot of the grounds; a very worthwhile diversion and IMHO better than the Okochi Sanso Garden we also visited). Had a late lunch in the local area then walked to JR’s Saga-Arashiyama stn; ¥220 to JR’s Inari stn (simple transfer at JR Kyoto stn) with the Fushimi Inari shrine entrance across the road. The place is pricey, but we’re glad we stayed here.

This is our 6th time in Japan and Kyoto is my favorite city. We loved our stay here and would definitely return. My husband and I stayed in the Kokyu machiya. Before we even arrived the communication from the property was responsive to questions The property itself is an 6-7 minutes walk from exit 6 at Karasuna -Oike subway exit. Note there are lockers right by the exit. We arrived super early and just dropped our in there to save time so we could continue exploring before checking in. The matcha tea ceremony and little gift upon arrival and local tips were appreciated. While on a residential side street, the property is centrally located and its easy to walk to many tourist areas or catch a subway and transfer. There are so many restaurants nearby (including my favorite place in Kyoto for shirunashi tantanmen - Gouriki w/iwalking distance). Also, Uber works great here and the drivers are just amazing Japanese taxi drivers, not regular gig workers, it seemed. We loved the Kokyu unit. bed was super comfortable and then sliding screens open to let tons of fresh air inn if you want. It does have traditional buckwheat pillows. There is an outdoor bath, cedar bath and shower (do this before getting in either bath to clean yourself first) and two toilets (one up and down). There was a microwave and utensils in the room and a rather big flat screen tv if you are into that. I loved the high ceilings and open feel. My brother and his wife were in Kinsho next to us, which was equally as lovely and had its own unique advantages such as regular sofas. A couple of tips: if you order breakfast keep in mind it arrives between 8-8:30 in case you have an early train Also, while there is a washer and dryer on-site, the dryer does not use heat and WILL take over three hours to dry. As an alternative there is a 24 hour coin laundry 7-8 minutes away on foot. I can’t wait to go back and stay a bit longer. It felt like we lived here for a minute and I loved it. Thank you !

We stayed 4 nights in the double-storey suite: Upper storey has a bedroom with framed beds and a private toilet; Lower storey has a living room, a well-equipped kitchenette with tatami seats (including a coffee maker, microwave oven, mini bar, utensils, bottle openers, cutting knife and board), a bedroom with futon beds with a garden view, ensuite bathroom with a hot tub with a garden view. Quality toiletries include face cleansers and lotion! Sets of Yukata and extra pillows and beddings are provided. There's ample wardrobe space in the rooms and luggage space in the corridor. Before arrival, I was concerned about the check-in since I read there was no reception desk. I messaged the host but did not receive any reply. However, the instructions were clear when we arrived at the machiya. There were only 4 units in total, a notice was written at the vicinity to call the manager using the phone provided. We were given the access code to the electronic door lock to our unit over the phone. The hosts came to our unit 20 minutes later with a welcome tea ceremony and they brought along a tablet to complete our check-in. Keith-the manager, his wife and an assistant are all very friendly and helpful. He gave us a map and recommended us many places of interest and restaurants. Overall, the location isn't the most convenient but the machiya is a gem for comfort and luxury. A Kyoto-styled breakfast can also be booked and served in the room between 8am and 8.30am... If they could offer daily housekeeping, we would have given them 5 stars!

Staying at Keith-San’s place was the hi-light of our Kyoto Trip. The rooms are all independent 120 years old houses right next to each other, called machiya’s. First of all, we were greeted, by the kindest people we've met, with a traditional japanese tea ceremony. This was by far one of my favorite moments in our trip, as it was relaxing and mesmerizing. The house itself was spectacular. Every details counts in the art of hotelier and everything was immaculate. A futon was layed out, as requested, in a tatami room where yukata’s were also provided, if you want to experience the japanese way’s. If not, there is a queen size bed upstairs. The gem in this house is the outdoors bath (Onsen) adjacent to the living room, where you can relax and enjoy your stay. As a couple this room/house is perfect because we would had to pay for a private room in an Onsen with a time limite to experience this together, as most Onsens are separated by gender. There is also a shower and a second bath with all the necessities. All were Shiseido,a a luxurious japanese brand. As for location, it is a quiet neighbourhood away from the many tourists. Walking distance of any transportation, subway or bus, to access all the main attractions. Keith-san went out of it’s way to suggest restaurants and activities for us to do in our stay, even after we check-out. He even reserved a traditional kyoto breakfast (if you don’t book the included one) and a japanese sweets making class, which we thurley enjoyed. If you would like to enjoy the hotel’s breakfast, you need to inform Keith-San before 3:00 PM the day before. You can’t find a better place then this! We wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for letting us experience your culture, Kalianne & Olivier

We didn't know what to expect when we booked this hotel but it totally exceeded our expectations. It is a traditional Japanese style hotel but nicely decorated with very fine facilities and appliances. My family loved the complimentary tea ceremony and sake tasting. Will definitely return for our next trip to Kyoto!

Stayed in the room with the outdoor bath and it was pretty impressive. We love the room design and their welcome tea ceremony. Their location is also perfect to walk around and explore. Wanted to extend another night but they were booked out. Hope to visit again soon and would recommend to those looking for nice accommodations in Kyoto.
