Had a good stay at Saya's. the location was fantastic, I loved the little laneway and the canal. The house was very old, and the we had a little trouble with the tap water (rusty), but overall quite comfortable and we thought it's spacious.

The apartment is in a fantastic location, by a scenic canal, in a quiet cozy alley, but easy walk to all the action, restaurants, night life and scenery of Gion, and the sights of Higashiyama. It was also quite spacious and stylish inside. Really nice! The microwave and toilet weren't as clean as they could be when we arrived. There was no hot water in the kitchen, and the water was a bit brown until we ran it for a while. The ceilings and especially doors were low - if you are tall then you have to be very careful with your head! :-) It wasn't very well set up for self catering... no knives or plates or mugs... just very small cups and bowls. Which of fine if you plan to eat out of course! :-) Overall we enjoyed it lots and would stay there again.

Awesome place to stay - would comfortably sleep 4 and up to 6 but with 2 we found it spacious and lovely, the air conditioning was great, it was very close to the station and we loved sitting by the nearby creek in the evenings. Great stay and excellent for all types of guests.

Great location, nice traditional home. Only negatives are a shortage of kitchen utensils. Had a blast of a time.

Very nice location along a romantic canal at walking distance from Gion. Very quiet and near small authentic restaurants (which is a good point after the touristy Gion streets!). Saya is very helpful and ready to help. The place is rather small and would perfectly fit 4 persons or a family. Beware of the steep staircase if you have small children though. Amenities are simple but everything is very clean. You may be surprised by the faint smell of the tatamis (which, besides, are very comfortable) but we assumed that it is due to the fact that they are brand new. Overall, a nice place that is very well located.
