Gion Maifukan is located in the nice area of Higashiyama which is one of the most picturesque areas in Kyoto. The room is quite big in size and very comfortable. The staff are very polite and always ready to offer help. I would highly recommend anyone to stay in Maifukan.
The location and staff were amazing. I stayed in a Japanese room, which are minimalist by design. There was water, green tea, and rice crackers awaiting my arrival and all subsequent days when I returned from touring the city. The staff were great all around including recommending restaurants (and calling to make my reservations) in the area and likely ended up at places I otherwise would not have found. Perfect location to explore from the heart of Kyoto.
I would have liked a light in my room that was dimmer than the overhead lights but brighter than the night light. But not that big of a deal.
Everything is good.
The Japanese Style Rooms. The cleanliness, and the friendliness of the staff. I have stayed many times, and have always found it comfortable and welcoming. An excellent choice.
Friendly staff Internet Room always tidy Spacious space (futon room) Complimentary water
Location, facilities & staff. The staff were amazingly helpful and kind. Love this place !
Near to many attractions
Took a bit time to find the location.
Staff very attentive Great location
Soundproofing. Can hear other rooms' door closing sound.
Staff were all very helpful. Good location to Gion and Higashiyama areas. Suggest to take bus near ryokan to travel to/fro downtown area.
A rather long distance walk of 15-20min to nearest subway station but still possible to travel by foot.
- Location was excellent, a few minutes walk to a busy bus stop. - Walking distance to Downtown Kyoto - Japanese style bathroom with ofuro and shower - Staff made room every day for daytime and evening
- Didn't get the traditional Ryokan experience - This was more a hotel with Ryokan-style rooms vs a true Ryokan
The hotel is right next to the Yasaka Jinja, at the heart of the Gion area. The hotel room was quite big for Japan standard. It had everything you need. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very helpful. It was amazing how they always remembered which room each guest stayed at. The bus route near the hotel also has direct bus access to several other attractions in Kyoto. Overall, very convenient location and very good value.
The curtains were not very light proof so it became quite bright in the morning.
Love the location and hot bath!!!
Excellent location for sightseeing. Large, very clean, western-style room with windows that could be opened. Helpful staff. Stylish yukata. Maeda café nearby, open from 7:00 & served good breakfast.
Website at time of booking indicated Japanese-style bath at sister ryokan would be available to guests, but this turned out not to be the case. Rooftop terrace needs some TLC.
The hotel staff was super-friendly, and very helpful for all matters (e.g. to find good places for breakfast, to deposit luggage after checkout, etc.), superb location of this small hotel in Gion

Everything - the Staff were gorgeous and accommodating; the Japanese style rooms amazing!!The location was excellent!!!
there was absolutely nothing to dislike!!
Located in a very old part of Gion and only a few minutes walk to Yasaka Shrine, the subway and pretty much everything Gion has to offer, this lovely little hotel offers both western and Japanese style rooms. The staff here are extremely courteous, have good english and the rooms exactly as we hoped, both spacious and comfortable. You really couldn't ask for a more homely place to stay, with such helpful staff and a great location its really hard not to recommend. Thank you for a fantastic stay and the next time we come to Gion, we'll be staying again.
The Gion Maifukan Ryokan was perfectly located, close to Gion Corner and only a stones' throw from both Yasaka Shrine and Shōhō-ji Temple. At first the hotel seems too modern, to offer ryokan-style accommodation, but upon entering our room we were greeted with a traditional ryokan room. Our bed was made for us whilst we were out exploring and despite being on the floor, was immensely comfortable. Kyoto was a very special place, only made better by our stay at the Gion Maifukan, thanks to the helpful staff. As we were driving from Osaka, parking was also available.
A wonderful experience on traditional Japanese style room and great location right at Gion area
Very attentive and friendly staff. Excellent location! Everything is just a stone's throw away - e.g. restaurants, shops, bus stop, etc.
Not aware of any dining facilities on site but recommendations for restaurants were good.
Not a thing I didn't like.
Staff are helpful and friendly. Good location. Room is clean and comfortable.
The staff was amazing! So friendly and helpful.
Accommodations are very basic. I had hoped for a nice garden and something a bit more luxurious based on the price. But after travelling through Japan I now realize that everything is more expensive there so actually this Ryokan is good value.
