Very Good

“Very comfortable stay for our family of six”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2012

Our family of six stayed here for three nights. We arrived in the early evening, and the townhouse was very easy to find, thanks to the directions that had been sent before our trip. We were greeted by someone who was very helpful in getting us settled. The townhouse was as nice as the pictures looked, but I was a little worried about traffic noise because it is situated on a busy street. However, this didn't bother us at all, the way the floor plan is set out. The kitchen was well equipped, and the bathroom was beautiful, especially the shower room. The laptop, WiFi, and washer/dryer were all essential for us. The twin beds were very comfortable and all of the linens for the beds and futons were clean and crisp. Having a grocery store around the corner was very convenient.

Response from the manager Thank you for staying at Kohakuan and sharing your thoughts about your stay. We are incredibly pleased to hear that you had a comfortable stay. We hope that you will chose to stay at Kohakuan again and look forward to the day when we can welcome you back to Kyoto!

“Great to experience genuine Japanese house”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2011

We had 2 nights in Kyoto and enjoyed this experience and comfort. Beds were welcome for mum/dad and our girls had the futons on the floor in second bedroom. Service provided was terrific and great to have laptop for access to internet/Skype. Would recomend strongly and stay again if circumstances arose!

Response from the manager Thank you for the comments. I’m happy to hear that you found the service and the place to your liking. I also want to mention that we also now offer free Wi-Fi for easy access to the internet, making it easier for people to use their iPhones or iPads or other electronic devices. I hope that you will have the chance to come back to Kyoto and stay at Kohakuan again. All the best.

“Memorable snapshot of anicent Japan”

Reviewed 21 Sep 2010

This was the first time we had visited Japan so I wanted to avoid staying at a hotel and get a "real" taste of the country. Initially, I was worried that the house wouldn't live up to the website's pictures but I'm happy to say it was actually better than I had expected. My husband and I took the regular beds while the kids slept on the futons, which was great because the kids got to have a sort of sleepover party while we relaxed in our comfy beds, I think the pillows contained camel fur or something fancy like that which was a nice plus. We definately felt home there and probably saved a lot of money by cooking a lot of our meals. We decided to be adventureous and try a lot of different Japanese foods, some of which we had no idea what it was, let alone how to cook it!! The person who checked us in was really helpful, which made me feel better because the only Japanese I know is konichiawa and sayonara. Not only did he make sure we were settled but he helped us arrange a couple of fun "experience Kyoto" type tours so we got to experience a traditional tea ceremony and do Japanese calligraphy. He also helped us find the supermarket and a couple of places that would be fun for the kids. But I think my favorite memory was just walking around the neighborhood and being away from the real touristy areas. Don't get me wrong, the place is just a short bus ride to kiyomizu tera and other historic places which are fun to visit and all, but if you want to experience every day life and enjoy having privacy and some down time than I really think you'll like this place. It was a home away from home.

Response from the manager Thank you for your valuable feedback. I’m incredibly pleased to hear that you were able to make the most of your stay and took the opportunity to experience what everyday life in Kyoto was like, along with some of the traditional arts Japan is renowned for. There are many hidden places in Kyoto that are not mentioned in the tourist books so I would be happy to help direct you to these areas on your next visit. I hope that you have a chance to visit Kyoto and stay at Kohakuan again in the very near future! All the best.
