Historic charm in a great location
We stayed at this machiya in December. It is a historic building, with all the charm and practical problems that one would expect of a historic building--wooden beauty, classic design, sliding screen doors, tatami rooms on the upside, and poor insulation, bathrooms only on the ground floor, and a very steep staircase on the downside. Of course, the advantages are well worth the disadvantages, so long as no one in your party has a mobility disability. The machiya itself is gorgeous and well maintained. It has been modernized with two nice bathrooms (note that the AC/heat extends poorly to both). The beds are on the hard side, but comfortable. There is a flat screen TV and a computer to use, as well as wifi. Maid service comes daily. The machiya is smaller than we expected. The main living room is only 4 tatamis, and the side room is even smaller. It is perfectly good for a couple, but not much more. The customer service was fantastic from reservation through the very last day of our stay. Their English is excellent--including at least one native speaker of English--a luxury in Japan! The location is great, about a 10 minute walk to the historic Gion district and Shijo Dori, with many temples and shrines are within walking distance, and restaurants & a grocery store 5 minutes away. We definitely would recommend this machiya. Even more strongly than the machiya itself, we recommend Machiya Residence Inn, which manages quite a few machiyas.

Good place to stay
The most great thing about the hotel is the location, it is perfect for anything you want to do in Kyoto. The house itself is good and clean, has all you need regardless of how long your stay is. One downside of the house that prevent me of enjoying the place, the house is divided into two floors by a very steep satirecase, bedroom and sitting room upstairs, bathrooms and kitchen downstairs if you are tall and big you may find it difficult to use it, either you stay up with no bathroom (problem with sleepy eyes in the morning or midnight or have children), or stay downstairs with no TV or sitting room if you can not sit on the floor until bedtime. The place will be perfect if a bathroom built upstairs, or get 50% of the problem solved by getting the sitting room with the tv downstaires. Other than this problem, the place is perfect.

Quaint little hidden gem
It's close to everything & a beautiful neighbourhood, have no complaints about this little house other than to suggest that for larger people (ie: over 175cm and/or over 80kg), this little house will prob be slightly uncomfortable to live in. There is also no bathroom upstairs and the climb down those steep stairs in the middle of the night is a bit of an a adventure in itself >_<
