About Machiya Residence Inn
A place in Kyoto just for you
At Machiya Residence Inn, we rent a house out to only one group at a time. This means that you have an entire house for yourself and your group. With an entire house at your disposal, you will have room to truly relax.
If you are seeking a space to call your own during your time in Kyoto, our machiya are a perfect match. You choose how you wish to spend your time, be it going out into the city or winding down by gazing out at the Japanese garden in your machiya house. Your machiya will provide a central location from where you can begin your Kyoto vacation
Various locations to choose from
With machiya spread throughout Kyoto, you'll be able to find the machiya that fits best into your travel plans. From the quiet neighborhoods of the Gion district to the central and convenient location of Shijo-Karasuma, you'll find a different experience in every machiya.
As well as different locations, each house offers a different style as well as history. From the antique furniture to the styles and build of the machiya itself, the various eras and time periods have left distinct and special marks on all of the machiya. Each machiya presents a different face of Kyoto for your enjoyment.
The houses are the perfect way to melt into life in Kyoto, while also enjoying the abundancy of attractions and sight seeing locations the city offers. You might find beloved local restaurants, hidden specialty shops, and secret sight-seeing spots just around the corner from your machiya!
The luxury of a home away from home
At Machiya Residence Inn, you will be able to enjoy the machiya townhouses as you would your very own home. A home away from home, you will find the privacy and comfort that will allow you to indulge yourself in your own personal space.
From couples, families, and friends, the machiya can accommodate 4 to 8 guests, depending on the house. The houses are also all equipped to accommodate the needs of both mid-term and long-term guests. A fully furnished kitchen will give you the option of dining out or cooking yourself, and a washing-machine and laundry detergent are provided for you. Free WiFi internet is also provided for your convenience.
Each machiya is equipped with a staff phone which you can use to contact a member of the staff 7 days a week. In case of problems or questions, our guest services information office, located by Kyoto Station, is also available from 10am to 7pm daily.
