Guestbook comments from the owner
"Cozy Home-Away-From-Home in an Excellent Location"
Kyoto Nene House is a quaint and cozy home-away-from home located on a quiet street just steps away from the beautiful Kyomizu Temple and the historic streets Ninenzaka and Sanenzaka (full of tourist shops, to be sure, but excellent treats, nice little lunch places and not a total assault of kitsch as it could be). Also not to be missed is the Kodaiji Temple right next door - probably overlooked a lot because of its proximity to Kyomizu, but featuring beautiful gardens and some fun rub-my-belly-for-good-luck sorts of statues. Also an easy walk to Gion (though don't bother visiting there until evening). We also took a "scenic walk" from the house to Ginkakuji Temple via the Philosopher's Walk - even with 2 babies it was lovely and doable in an afternoon.
We stayed comfortably with 5 adults and 3 kids (one two-year-old and 2 10-month-olds) - though sharing a room of futons with ordinarily crib-bound kids wasn't always easy. The bath was delicious after long days of being a tourist, and the kitchen was large and open and a nice place to hang out in the evenings (though with all the excellent nearby food options, we ended up not cooking a single meal there).
Taking a cab from the train station is highly recommended - but make sure to bring along a printout of the map as well as the address and phone number. Our cab driver wasn't quite sure where to go but figured it out after some time on the iphone. We ended up walking back to the train station for our return - a long walk, but nice to see a different part of the city.
One thing to note for the jetlag prone - nothing in the neighborhood opens before 10am, and everything shuts down around 4 or 5 (except for a few of the small restaurants). Early dinners are a good idea, and the nearby 7-11 (5 minute walk to the main drag) was where we ended up getting breakfasts (actually, don't knock it - they have really good rice balls there and some prepackaged meals that are pretty tasty).
We stayed for 4 nights and Nobu (who speaks very good english and was quite helpful) came once in the middle of our stay to refresh towels and empty the trash. We felt very well taken-care-of.
I highly recommend Nene House - I will sing its praises to anyone who will listen and I plan to go back and stay there longer next time!
