Cannot beat the location in Gion District. Nice strong internet, which is more than I can say for most hotels during our Japan/Seoul trip. Service was excellent. Even if they could not speak English, which almost all Japanese cannot, they are so helpful. Always tried to help us out. Clean and spacious rooms.

Not the most traditional ryokan, but it gives you a good flavor of it. The location, cleanliness, coziness will make your experience unforgettable. Our room was spacious and clean. The bathroom is a real Japanese experience.

This small hotel in the Gion area of Kyoto is ideally situated for exploring the sights and is on a quiet street in one of the best neighborhoods in the city. We stayed in the Western style room which was very comfortable and had all the amenities we required, including a refrigerator. What really makes this hotel stand out, however,... More

Location is excellent in Gion, very close to Yasaka Pagoda & Kiyomizudera; room suite was excellent for family of four: 2 in Western bedroom, 2 in tatami bedroom; service staff was extremely helpful in booking restaurants and quickly finding lost iphone at nearby temple.

If I could give this place 10 stars, I would already. Despite the basic English command, the staff will go out of their way to help you out with anything. My husband was sick when we arrived and they provided us with pharmacy locations and helped with translation to get appropriate medicines. The staff also helped us in choosing and... More

you sleep on little mattresses on the floor--the staff could not be nicer--literally--impossible to be nicer--and really trying to be helpful--not great English but who cares--they were so nice--the tiny restaurant served some great food--and the staff brought me great Sushi in the middle of the night--was a great experience and you can walk to all sorts of cool urban...

I can't say enough about the quality and level of service at this hotel. The staff was so incredibly helpful and kind in every way possible. The first night we asked for a shabu shabu dinner recommendation and they quickly pulled together a detailed walking map for us with directions to a wonderful nearby restaurant. They also researched and put... More

On our honeymoon trip to Japan we wanted to experience the traditional Japanese room style so we booked one night at Gion Maifukan. When we left this morning we regret we only booked one night here. The staff are the gem of this hotel! They were extremely friendly and helpful. They even took a photo of us upon arrival and... More
