location and staff
I expected this ryokan to be something special because of the reviews and high price but was disappointed by the uncomfortable bed and average breakfast.
The rooms were very spacious and the location was good.
Superb staff. Couldn't have been more helpful.
We spent two nights of our honeymoon in Gion Maifukan. The location is perfect for exploring the eastern side of Kyoto. Even for Japanese standards, the service from the staff is very polite and thoughtful.
Very friendly staff
The map we could find from web is not helpful and not easy to find the hotel. We found that the map in our room is even more clear that it is suggested to post on the web for reference. No meal is included.
The staffs are very helpful, nice and always have big smile. They lent us umbrella when outside is having heavy rain. We had warm welcome from the staffs when ever we arrive or go out from the hotel. The room are very spacious, clean and quiet. No smell of tabacco. We feel like at hotel. Very relax. It's easy to travel around, bus stop is nearby. It's excellent, out of my expectation. I would absolutely stay in this hotel if I visit Kyoto.
Japanese style room was perfect Near Lawson and attractions
The location in Gion/Higashyama area is unbeatable! Can walk to many shrines/temples and shopping & restaurants just ouside your door. Very kind and helpful staff! Try the Japanese style room - very unique!
Maybe might be better if they had a more detailed map on how to get there from public transport. We wandered off to the residential area but eventually found the place. Still, plus point for me because I got to see the local residents' houses. :)
We got the Japanese-style room and it was super awesome! It was quite roomier from what I expected and came with all the nice amenities. Hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating.
Check out time at 12 noon would be great!
Hotel is within walking distance to many places of interest and lots of restaurants too.
we loved the location and the staff were so helpful and friendly and went out of their way to help us plan our day
the price is a little bit high!
futon is so cute and comfy!
clean & friendly
Have to travel a bit to reach the hotel.
Staff are very courteous. Very clean and neat environment. Very spacious room. Traditional sit down bathing with bath tub.
Very friendly and exceptionally good staffs, feel like they are all the owner of the hotel. Top service, I have never seen anything like this before.
Outside our room were the air con condensers which were very noisy but being so tired, they didn't keep us awake.
Staff very helpful - they were able to book restaurant reservations and they also prepared a bespoke vegetarian breakfast for us which was amazing! Japenese style room was great and futon beds very comfortable Location is great only a stones throw from Yasaka Shrine
Location is really excellent. We had a family of 5 in one of the combo rooms and it worked perfectly. DO NOT MISS the amazing breakfast. The description at the front desk does not do it justice. Can't thank the staff enough for always having such a cheery smile.
Very friendly and helpful staff, again the location was great
Spacious rooms and bathroom. Very clean and good blend of traditional ryokan with modern touches for comfort.
The wifi in the room came and went. The heat in the room was also very patchy. Very cold in one bed (by the window) and warm by the other.
Great location, quiet and large room, staff was always helpful. Hot water and refrigerator were great.
Nothing awesome place to visit
Great place to stay if want the Japanese style beds with a western bathroom really close to major sites walking distance . Or short cab ride
There weren't a lot of outlets--but then we traveled with a LOT of electronics (3 computers, iPad, Kindle, 3 phones and an electric toothbrush.) We did need to pay attention to swapping around to make sure everything was charged. And during the daytime the main table was far enough from the outlet that the cord didn't reach, which was not a problem in the evening set up. Still, this is a VERY MINOR quibble in what was overall a totally wonderful experience.
We loved everything about Gion Maifukan. The staff was so personal--they remembered our room number, remembered where we were going, even asked about whether we had found a shop we'd asked about! We stayed in a traditional Japanese room with futon and we were extremely comfortable. If you are considering this and are not twenty any more, don't worry, do it! We never wanted to leave. I can't imagine wanting to stay anywhere else in Kyoto.
everything was terrific
The staff were highly supportive and very friendly which made our stay most pleasurable. The facilities and comfort work excellent and the traditional bedding a great experience. This hotel is central to all transport and local attractions. Thank you to all staff for making our stay a wonderful experience.
There is nothing at all to fault
Staff went above and beyond to make our stay here the best it could be. Ease of check in/out. Staff are highly courteous, friendly and very helpful.Rooms are well appointed, clean, spacious and very comfortable. Great location. When i did my washing at a local laundry the staff even provided an english set of instructions. Highly recommend a stay at Gion Maifukan. Excellent value for money. Will certainly stay again (we even extended our stay here). A big thank you to all staff.
Nothing I can think of
Easy access around, bus is a street away which is main road. My older children can go in out on their own. Good walking distance to temples. Staff is friendly. Will recommend to anyone and definately go back there.
