Property Details

Tsuru House is an elegant 65m² newly renovated house located in a peaceful residential neighborhood just 5 minutes walk north of the UNESCO World Heritage listed Nijo Castle. It features a separate colorful modern bedroom with 2 double beds and TV.

Complimentary Netflix gives the option of English movies and TV shows, to get you and the family through any rainy days.

The bath/shower room is newly renovated and the toilet facilities are separated from this area.

The house has complimentary wireless internet and additional mobile pocket wifi, for maximum guest convenience.

The house is a non-smoking property. We request the smokers do so down the street from the property.

Kyoto is a truly wonderful city full of culture and history. So much so, that it might be hard to know where to start. We highly recommend allocating at least 4-5 days to explore and enjoy the town, and even then you will be left wanting more!
