We stayed 7 nights and could not fault the accommodation or staff. Being a small hotel with same excellent staff we felt at home very quickly. The location was excellent being walking distance from the City, Gion District and many Gardens and Temples Shrines etc. Our traditional tatami room was perfect and enjoyable.

Great hotel in the perfect location to explore one of Kyotos most picturesque neighbourhoods. Easy walking distance to many sights, restaurants and bars. Amazing staff, always happy to help. Would highly recommend and definitely stay again.

The staff were exceptional: they have a good working knowledge of English(you can't count on this in Japan, even in the hospitality industry). There was nothing that was too much trouble for them. It's a traditional style Japanese hotel, and we had an extra tatami room, where our 34 yr old son, who joined us for this trip, slept on... More

I stayed in this hotel last month and I really love it. The location is good, very close to Gion. The Japanese style room is very nice! My friend and I like the room very much! The staffs there are very helpful. I got an allergy on the day we supposed to check out. The girl in the reception drew... More

My wife gave high praise for this hotel because of the room settings (traditional Japanese Ryokan) and the location as well. The hotel is located in Gion which is the traditional city center in old times of Kyoto. I should say, unlike the more modernised city center to the west of Gion, the neighbourhood is filled with the flavour of... More

We spent 3 nights in Maifukan. Check in was surprising as we were asked to pay for the full stay upfront, which we didn't expect. Other than that, the staff were very nice. There is no restaurant, only some days do they offer breakfast and you are required to book the night before and for an exact time, but it... More

Maifukan is a really nice hotel, there is lots of space. The room we were in were huge. The staff was very nice and let us change from western style to japanese style room at check in. There was tea, coffee and biscuits, water bottles in the fridge very much appreciated in the summer heat. And ideally located close to... More
