Mume is a great place to stay and justify by itself to include Kyoto in your itinerary. The hotel is comfortable, decorated with taste, and very well located in a nice neighborhood near major places to visit. The service deserves to be highlighted. They find a way to balance to be very professional and very friendly. They have become for... More

A second visit to Kyoto provided a second opportunity to stay at Hotel Mume in Gion. The location is perfect and, for Japanese hotels, the space is good. It's quirky; it's stylish and it's great fun. Management and staff will do everything they can to make your visit perfect. They speak excellent English, they provide a delicious breakfast, they will... More

If there were "Oscars" for the hotel industry as there are for the film industry then I would nominate Hisako and her team for an Oscar for every possible category!!!! We spent 4 nights at Hotel Mume last week and had the flower room (beautiful room with balcony overlooking the small river behind). This hotel is in a category of... More

Hotel Mume is perfectly located in Gion. The staff is incredibly helpful. They had a map printed for everywhere on our agenda. The owner is very sweet. She went to culinary school and so knows food well. She spent 30 minutes with my girlfriend and I helping us find the perfect restaurant.

Absolutely stunning hotel, super rooms, nice breakfast, best service we have ever experienced, they even come out to wave you off in the taxi. We stayed 4 nights in butterfly room 3. Sad to leave Kyoto and Mume. Book well in advance, only 7 rooms!

I think that everything is already said regarding this fantastic hotel, but I couldn't help writing as well. The rooms are wonderful (we had the Butterfly one), the breakfast is very tasty, it is perfectly located…but what makes this hotel outstanding is the service. The staff makes everything to make you feel perfectly, helping you with everything you need (and... More

My husband and I like to stay in small unique hotels when we are traveling. So when planning our our trip to Japan these were the types of hotels that we sought out. The reviews of Mume Hotel in Kyoto led us to believe that this would be a special place to stay, and that it certainly was. The moment... More

The level of service and attention to detail in the hotel were outstanding, with great staff and in a great location for visiting Kyoto. The staff were all very helpful with their recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing and shopping, including maps for us to use. Both breakfast and the happy hour were very enjoyable and added to the wonderful experience at... More
