“I’ve stayed at a lot of Airbnbs over the years (have been a user for 4+ years) and have stayed in various accommodations on my own account or those of friends in over a dozen countries across Asia, Europe, Africa, and The Americas. The experience I had at the Sakura River Inn was by far the best of any Airbnb thus far. The space itself is wonderful and the location is super convenient (near restaurants, bus stops, metro, bike rentals, grocery stores, shopping, tourist sites, etc.). That said, what makes this Airbnb truly stand out is the hosts. When we arrived, Andrea was waiting for us in the unit and he took the time to personally give us a tour of the space, explaining how everything worked. Moreover, he had prepared multiple maps as well as a guide book that included things like his recommended restaurants, creative ideas for daily itineraries, and even walked us through the appropriate transit options to get us from one place to another. And if that superb service somehow wasn’t enough, he was also super responsive over chat after he had left. My father was curious about a good place to buy some local tea and so we thought to ask Andrea and not only did he respond promptly, but he provided three different options (at different price points and distances), laid out the pros and cons, and provided directions to each. This was the best of Airbnb and reminded me of why I fell in love with the platform in the first place. Solid 11/10. We had initially planned to stay only 3 nights and Andrea’s fantastic input resulted in us extending our stay by an additional 2 nights (which ended up being our favourite in Kyoto). I genuinely would not stay anywhere else.”

“A house that has been renovating a townhouse in Kyoto more than 100 years old. It is old but clean, art is fused, and it was the house I wanted to stay at. Especially the porch was very nice and it was well immersed. Lol I could spend the best 3 days! Yoshi was very friendly and kind, and he taught me everything from the rooms to the surrounding sights. I will stay when I come to Kyoto! Thank you very much! PS We went tuna bowl! It was very delicious ^^”

“We spent a delightful 2 days in Kyoto at Seanacy and Kojiro's wonderful ryokan. They were great hosts and super accommodating. I love staying in places that have a rich history and this exceeded my expectations. The sleeping rooms and updated 100 year old lounge space were so cool and provided the perfect backdrop to our visit to Kyoto. I especially enjoyed sipping on a nice Nikka whiskey downstairs at the whiskey bar/cafe. Such a chill, awesome place. I'd love to return the next opportunity I get.”
