Hotel is within walking distance to many places of interest and lots of restaurants too.
Check out time at 12 noon would be great!
we loved the location and the staff were so helpful and friendly and went out of their way to help us plan our day
futon is so cute and comfy!
the price is a little bit high!
clean & friendly
Staff are very courteous. Very clean and neat environment. Very spacious room. Traditional sit down bathing with bath tub.
Have to travel a bit to reach the hotel.
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.
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
Outside our room were the air con condensers which were very noisy but being so tired, they didn't keep us awake.
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.
Great location, quiet and large room, staff was always helpful. Hot water and refrigerator were great.
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 place to stay if want the Japanese style beds with a western bathroom really close to major sites walking distance . Or short cab ride
Nothing awesome place to visit
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.
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.
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.
everything was terrific
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.
There is nothing at all to fault
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.
Nothing I can think of
The staff were the kindest people I have ever met and the location of this hotel couldn't be better. The restaurant attached is also incredible with beautiful service. Kyoto is definitely one of my favourite cities in the world.
Loved the location, near to a couple of great shrines and a major street with tons of shops and restaurants. Amazing staff was friendly and helped with every need we had. Would definitely stay again!
None of the taxi drivers knew of the hotel, we had to try to explain where it was to them (in case you do stay there, it's 500ft south of Yasaka Jinja (Shrine).
The staff are BEYOND Excellent! Every question found a well researched answer and their smiles brightened up a rainy day!
Nothing worth mentioning!
Perfect location and impeccable, friendly service. This ryokan is right in the heart of Gion and very close to Yasakawa Shrine. The tatami mat rooms are a good size and very comfortable. Great private baths too. Would definitely stay here again.
Nothing really - though taxi drivers don't know it. Best to take the phone number so you can call through for directions and take a card when you head out which shows where it is.
very friendly and helpful staff. I staid in a Japanese style room. The first night I did not sleep so well due to the noice from the outside ventilation/airco system. But it was not so bad but they insist to give me another room and it was perfect. The location is the Gion district is very good and quite during the night.
Excellent position, nice room and the staff is very kind
The staff were great, location fantastic, much was within walking distance.
Cleanliness of the rooms and the hotel. Attentive staff. Location! Walking distance to Gion and Yasaka Shrine and Kodaiji Temple.
This hotel was spacious and the staff were amazing and accomodating. Had a great time staying here in kyoto.
