Score from 2080 reviews Wonderful
the room is very clean, and comfortable. and staff(host?) are very kind and nice. I like this guest house so much!
bathtub is small. bathtub is for only one person use.
Very kind and welcoming hosts. Authentic early 20th century timber frame home, tatami mats, paper screens. Good traditional breakfast. Location is perfect for Gion sites seeing.
We travelled in Winter and the house only has heating in bedrooms, bathrooms and other main rooms, but not central heating, so can be a bit uncomfortable - no problem in warm months I expect.
The cultural experience Staying close to the heritage sites, within walking distances.
We were greeted by Mr and Mrs Moriyso when we checked in. Very friendly. Made us felt at home. The hot bath was great. Great and convenient location.
Gion Morisyo is an traditional classic style building with wonderful room service, which located at the ancient area of Kyoto, presents an amazing experience for voyagers.
Good location, friendly and kind owner, I'd like to back here again! We are really enjoyed our stay! Чудечное место в самом сердце района Гион, хороший WiFi, мягкие футоны. Персонал рёкана очень доброжелательный, всё покажут и расскажут, дадут карту.
The owners are the most caring and honest staff I've met in my travels. The location is superb in the middle of Gion within walking distance to alot of great sights and convenient access to bus stops for others.
Hard to think of anything bad about this place. Shared bathrooms might be unfamiliar to some, but the showers (two!) were excellent so it's not an issue.
The owners are wonderfully friendly and eager to share their city and culture. Great location in Gyon within the areas with old traditional wooden buildings. Nice view onto rooftops - large room. Comfortable beds and very tasty and varied breakfast.
The couple who hosted me are just delightful and so helpful and kind. Location is excellent. I loved all the gardens that complement the view from every room.
Loved every second in this hotel! The rooms are big and beautiful, you feel like you really arrived in japan when entering the door. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
external environment hurt this gem stone like facility.
- Perferctly located in the Higashiyama district, which means in walking distance to some of the best tourist sites. - Very, very helpful and friendly staff-owner, who provided us with hand written maps and loads of advice on how to get to the temples and other sites on our tourist list. Great help with bus lines! - Family atmosphere in this traditional Japanese home including a traditional bath. - cleanliness. - orange juice and fruits in the morning even though we did not book breakfast. - internationally oriented family - just a GREAT EXPERIENCE!
A must stay place. wished i stayed 2 nights here. really friendly couple own it. got the breakfast it was fantastic. absolutely love it. really enjoyed my stay there. in the middle of the Gion district lovely old part of town. nice large size room. love to stay again soon/ next trip :)
On one of our two nights, we had the bad luck of having very loud people in the room next to ours. And with paper walls... Well, we did not sleep at all.
Amazingly hospitable family running this Ryokan. They were exceptionally helpful yet discrete as to give us total privacy. Beautiful deep wooden bath tub was a delight too. Cannot wait to come back!
Location was top - in the heart of the Higashiyama District; our hosts were very friendly and helpful with tops and train reservations; the place was spacious, very clean and gave a traditional Japanese feel - we would definitely be back!!
Very friendly staff with nice help!
Soundproof might be not good.
This traditional Japanese hotel is situated in the middle of the Gion distric with good bus conection to other parts of Kyoto. The room was very spacious (especially compared to busines/Western style hotels in Japan) and we found sleeping on futons very comfortable. It's a small, family owned place. The owners and their son were very helpful and polite, speaking enough English to communicate. The breakfast (at extra cost) was excellent and I think quite authentic. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would definitely recomend it.
Very gorgeous local hotle, the best experience I have ever had. The location is fatastic, just down site main sightseeing spot, where we can walk around every morning bofore large batch of tourist groups' coming. It's quiet and not far away from the trainstation, easily for transfer to other hot sightseeing. Besides, the hosts are very hospitality, old couple but very energic and good in English. They prepare very delicious Japanese style breakfast. I strongly recommend this hotel, where I would for sure stay again in Kyoto.
Not at all.
Our six night stay at Gion Morisyo was one of the highlights of our holiday in Japan. It's perectly positioned across the road from Gion, backing on to Higashiyama District (the two areas of historical houses) and with buses to all the main sights. it's an easy and interesting walk to to the Downtown area via Gion.It's on a very quiet street and we were not aware of any noise. There are excellent dining iotions in the immediate vicinity. The ryokan is beautifully authentic with wonderful design details. The room we stayed in was large with wonderful sliding screens and a view out to the beautiful back garden. Don't be put off by the share bathrooms - there are three rooms and three bathrooms so there were never any queues. We didn't find staying in ryokans the least bit challenging - quite the opposite, and so much more character than a large anonymous hotel. The owners and hosts were such lovely kind and generous people that we ended up buying them small gifts to repay their fantastic hospitality (always discreet and unobtrusive). They speak reasonably good English and will help you get to wherever you want to go. We were loathed to leave and have very fond memories of our stay.
I’ve been to lots of hotels in the world, while this house is quite a special one and one of the best experience for both body and soul. First of all, its location is extremely central in Kyoto, right in Gion Area, within 10 minutes walking distance to lots of famous scenic spots, like Maruyama Park, Kodai-ji Zen Temple, Kiyomizu Temple, etc. The ower of this house is so hospitable. They kindly prepare maps specially in Chinese edition since we are from China, and their own hand made maps and bus & JR routing for more detail info and many magazines for our reference. The nicely showed us the best way for tours in Kyoto without any of our request. They well decorate room with daily fresh follows, prepare hot tea and cookie, and turn on the heating and electric blankets before we are out from cool outside. If you want take a bath tube, they will make hot water ready for you. The breakfast is delicate and different day by day making you feel surprise. The guest room is quite huge with one living room and one bed room. Though the wash room is not inside the guest room, we never feel inconvenient since there is only 3 guests room sharing 3 toilets and 2 bathroom. The house is really neat and cozy and the families are very nice and warm hearted, everything here make you feel like home and very comfortable.
It was a very pleasant stay at Gion Morisyo. Nice house, location is quite good. Breakfast is very delicious.
Friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable warm accommodation. Excellent food great Japanese Inn experience Beautiful seeing closer to major attractions Close to bus route
The owners were lovely, very helpful and kind. The experience of this authentic traditional home is exceptional as is the location. Loved the shower. The breakfasts. All you need to know is traditional means sleeping on a futon on the floor. If you don't mind that, this is a wonderful place. Definitely recommend!!!
The best thing about Gion Morisyo is the people. The family who own and manage the property are so delightful, welcoming and go out of their way to make you feel at home and welcome. The breakfasts were delicious, location great and accommodation very clean, comfortable and traditional. HIGHLY recommend!!!
