This is the perfect place to stay. The hotel is well appointed and comfortable. The staff are very welcoming and really go out of their way to make a stay the best it can be. The location is right in the heart of beautiful Kyoto and within walking distance of many great things to do. The transport system is easy... More

My husband and I stayed at Maifukan for six nights in Kyoto in a traditional Japanese room, and we could not imagine a more comfortable or hospitable place. Free WiFi, waters, an empty fridge for us to store snacks, tea, coffee and very tasty rice cakes were provided complimentary every day. The room was *huge* with a separate eating area,... More

This is a real nice hotel with japanese style rooms. Rooms are very clean and comfortable and the hotel is very conveniently located. It's walking distance to Kiyomizudera and Yasaka shrine and very close to multiple shopping/restaurant areas. We were also able to rent bikes from the hotel which was very convenient. The rates were a little pricey because of... More

We arrived via train at Kyoto station and took a bus ride to reach our destination. We had some problem locating the hotel at the beginning as the directions from the bus stop to the hotel was quite vague. For those travelling on your own, just cut across the Yasaka temple grounds and you will reach the hotel. One of... More

My family and I stayed at Gion Maifukan for one night on January 2, 2015. The hotel has an excellent location in a beautiful neighbourhood (Gion) amidst narrow streets with charming wooden buildings and is a 10-15 minute walk from major attractions such as Kiyomizu-dera and the Yasaka Shrine. By bus (100 or 206) from Kyoto Station it is a... More
