Top notch service, and room was ok, but it would benefit from a makeover. (clean but a bit dated) We are a family of four with two kids aged 9 and 11, and the it was good size. More of a small apartment than a room - with toilet and bathroom in the hallway. Traditional mats / beds on floor... More

I stayed here only 1 night at suite room with tatami for 6 persons. It is an apartment with 2 bedrooms (one room is twin bed and another room is Japanese style bedroom) The decoration and space allocation is impressive with separate bathroom and toilet. Full options of amenities and free wifi. No breakfast included. The hotel itself provides excellent... More

The hotel is located in the central Gion area and right next to Yasaka Jinja (やさかじんじゃ). The room is very clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay. It was quite big per Japanese hotel standard. The hotel staff keeps the room keys when we go out and they actually remembered us by name and greeted us each... More

All was clean and organized. The staff was very helpful and really wanted us to enjoy our stay at their hotel and... More

We do not speak Japanese and started our stay in Kyoto with some concerns about communicating, The hotel offered clean, good shelter. It was the front desk staff that made Maifukan stand out. Totally helpful with individual maps, good advice about restaurants, taxis, buses and trains and the like. Every place in Kyoto they prepared a most useful map of... More

Maifukan is perfectly situated, in walking distance to visit some of the best temples around the Gion area. The hotel is lovely and the Japanese style room we stayed at was very nicely maintained. Staff are extremely courteous and helpful. We had a wonderful stay and will definitely recommend.

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... More

Had a great unforgettable stay in the Japanese traditioal style. Wished we have stayed a couple of days more. Room set up good and spacious though can be little difficult to sleep on the thin mattress if not used but we managed. The area is old but beautiful and clean. Walking distance to many places, restaurants of all types and... More

A huge thank you to the staff for making our stay absolutely perfect. Nothing was ever too much trouble them, they even ordered our takeaway to ensure it was vegetarian (we'd been offered seafood as 'vegetarian' dishes in restaurants). Maifukan is perfectly situated to visit some of the best temples in and around Gion (the 3 we visited were within... More
