    Excellent place to adsorb traditional Japanese culture and has fantastic links to over local sightseeing. Great city for walking butcan be challenging as old Kyoto is on the slopes of the hill. Plenty of activities to do and places to see. Wake up early or stay up late to see streets almost empty for great pictures. It was say to orientate in the city and has great connection with over parts of the country.

    Very different vibe to Tokyo.

    Very different vibe to Tokyo. Kyoto is the old capital of Japan, and it feel more like a cultural city than the busy-ness of Tokyo. Some places are very popular - buses as primary transport outside of major stations and hubs. Highly recommend the Korean BBQ restaurant above Kyoto Station - we went twice! Arashiyama Bamboo Grove and nearby shrines can be very busy over the weekend. Heavy foot traffic with kimonos and photography. Fushimi Inari Shrine is worth the visit. If you plan to climb to the top, take the RIGHT path rather than the left - The left path looks shorter and more direct, but is much much steeper. The right path is a more manageable steady paced ascent.

    Kyoto is a small city, providing easy access to many local attractions, including food and culture, temples and other historical landmarks as well as nature and wildlife. It is also a very short trip (less than one hour one-way on the limited express train) to Osaka making it easy to do day trips. We spent 4 nights here, but could have stayed for much longer.

    Love the energy of this city, but there is soooooo much to see ... plan well and scope out say five favourite sites, and be sure... SURE BEFORE all else .. to go to Wallet on Iphone and Add Card, an Icoca or Suica card, so you can just swipe on and off all buses and trains between temples and forests with your mobile .... you'll love it.. one other tip .. Get out of your hotel EARLY .. like 7am or earlier to see the sites.. by 11 am, you will be swamped by thousands of other tourists just like you from all over the world :>

    Kyoto was an amazing experience. If you’re interested in exploring more aspects of traditional Japanese culture there’s plenty for you to do! Temples are in abundance, you can stumble upon one after the other. The food around Kyoto is also incredible. Some of the best ramen I had during my trip!

    The staff is excellent. They are very helpful and attentive. They always greeted us when we would leave the hotel and come back. Very modern and clean facility. The breakfast was the star of the show. The hotel breakfast may have been one of the best meals we have ate on this Japan trip and we have been to Japan multiple times before. We at there twice in 3 days. There is a also a very good grocery store underneath the hotel. This hotel is great for families also. We highly recommend this hotel.

    Super close to everywhere you want to go. This was our first visit of Kyoto and I thought we should stay in Gion to be close to everything. Big mistake! Stay on the other side of the river to be close to all amazing restaurants, shops, public transport and others! The best location, literally 5 minutes to everywhere you want to go. For Gion take bus or taxi! Easy. For this price they are even cleaning every day. Felt like in 3x more expensive hotel We also used laundry service and we loved it!

    The Hotel is truly amazing, simply one of the best boutique hotels you can find. The hotel and the staff provide absolute privacy, everything is very quiet and zen, the staff excels in every possible way, a great experience. Location is excellent as well. If I would have to make a remark it would be in relation to the restaurant: amazing staff, delicious food, but still some room for improvement (to reach Michelin star level). All in all, a wonderful experience and we will definitely return.

    We had a wonderful stay at this hotel! It’s less than 10 min walk to the Kyoto station and about a minute walk from the convenience store. There are lots of great restaurants in the area and everything is walking distance! We absolutely loved the vibe of the hotel. It was fun to read at the end of the night and sit in the library. They also show different short films at the end of the night. This hotel has a luxury hostel vibe. Really really loved it! The staff were also soooo nice!

    The hotel was located at the prime location within Kyoto’s Gion. The spaces were impeccably clean and our room was very comfortable. It was also nicely decorated, in Japanese style. The hotel has an onsen, which is quite a relaxing experience after a long day of walking and exploring Kyoto. However, the absolute best part about our stay was very attentive staff who put efforts to ensure our luggages reach us at our upcoming destination. We would love to stay here again.

    First of all, I liked it that it was just outside one of the metro stations. It was absolutely the best location. The staff was extremely kind and responsive. The room was beautifully equipped, and had a magnificent view of the east side of Kyoto with all its beautiful shrines and temples. Everything in the room worked beautifully. The hotel century located, and he was easy to reach any of the sites that I had in mind to visit. An excellent experience overall !

    If you want a comfortable luxury stay then this is the best hotel in Kyoto. Spacious rooms, great hospitality, amazing bathroom & beautiful interior. The staff were very helpful & made it easy getting taxis & arranging & calling kimono rental shops. But best of all was the spa & the private onset. As a man with tattoos I was paranoid but it was amazing I got to use the facilities & the private onset was like something out of a manga. Worth every penny

    The hotel is very pretty, clean and well maintained and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very spacious, which was perfect for us traveling with our small daughter, bringing not only our luggage but also a stroller. I think the absolute best part about this hotel is its amazing location, super close to the next bus stop and perfect to walk to most locations (we walked to Kiyomizudera, all around Gion, to Pontocho and Sanjusangendo.

    Probably the best thing about this hotel is the level of professionalism of the staff. We felt very welcome and we were served at our beck and call. Upon arriving, we received meal coupons that we could use for breakfast and lunch. The restaurant staff was also very professional ad the food was amazing. The location of the hotel is superb since it's right next to a subway station but also only a 5 minute walk to Karasuma and the Pokémon Center.

    Amazing stay in Kyoto - best accommodation during our Japan trip!!! Room is comfortable and clean - no view though but this didn’t bother us as we were out most of the day. The staff were so amazing and caring and breakfast did have great selection. Drinks in the evening were a bonus. Hotel is next door to subway line and about 10-15min walk to the main station. There are shops and restaurants on the way. We would definitely stay here again.

    Perfect location - steps away from the train station (which is essential anywhere in Japan), located very closely to tons of action and restaurants, some of the most gorgeous showers I’ve ever seen, and extremely comfortable beds (felt like sleeping on a pillow). Very friendly staff too! Highly recommend - on par with The Thousand hotel in Kyoto (both are the best of the best).

    The room was very clean and modern and exceeded my expectations. Having the toilet in a separate room from the shower/vanity is an added luxury you don't always see in such affordable hotels in Japan. Even with a full-size couch, the room was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is right next to a subway station, but we opted to walk most of the time since the area is so lovely.
