Need advice on where to stay in Kyoto - Machiya vs Hotel?

Jump to last reply

Hi, planning a visit to Kyoto in Feb/March. Looking at the Granvia and the Hyatt. Am quite keen to experience a machiya but unsure of the bedding, heating in the bedrooms, access/proximity to sights and service. I find futons uncomfortable and am not sure of sleeping on tatamis for 7 nights. I have looked at the Aori, Machiya-Residence-Inn and Iori ones and have come across mixed reviews. While we hope to be out all day, a home may offer our family of 4 more space in the event we are stuck indoors. Any advice on machiya experiences and or reccos?
