My fiancé picked Hotel Mume (pronounced Moo-Meh) as a home base for sight-seeing, relaxing and a surprise marriage proposal during our trip to Kyoto about a month ago. From what I know, Mume rarely has vacancies due to it's popularity but the manager contacted him when a guest had cancelled. If there's any constructive criticism I could make, it would... More

Possibly my favourite hotel in Japan, Asia...and heck, the world. This was our second stay in Mume, retiring after about two and half years. We stayed in the Wind room (again) and were delighted once again with the quality of the accommodation and the exceptional service. Everything at Mume revolves around making the guest as comfortable and happy as possible.... More

Our group of 8 loved this little hotel. Easy walking distance to shopping. Beautiful location is close to several shrines. Good breakfast, very filling. We got fruit, yogurt, a boiled egg, several rolls and various soup. With only 7 rooms you have to book early, but it was worth every penny!

I booked this hotel on recommendation, and couldn't have been more pleased. Excellent service, nothing was too much trouble. Excellent location walking distance to all the sights in Gion. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone and will definitely return.

From the moment we arrived we knew our stay at Mume would be different to every other hotel we had stayed at. Being a small boutique hotel we expected a higher level of personal service but what we got was beyond anything we had imagined! Hisako, Miyuki, Taiki and all the staff were incredibly friendly, helpful and warm - nothing... More

Words cannot describe our experience staying at Mume! We travel a lot for work and pleasure and and stayed in top hotels around the globe, but trust me no other hotel would ever beat the service and thoughtfulness of Mume. Hisako and her team really made our 21st anniversary a magnificent one. Mume will be the only address in kyoto... More

On a recent trip to Japan we decided to make Kyoto the centre of the vacation, staying in the city for 18 nights. As we did not want to change hotels, we did extensive research to find one that had exemplary reviews. This led us to select Hotel Mume for our stay. We spent 14 nights in the Flower Room... More

Wish I could give it more than 5 stars. We stayed at this lovely boutique for 4 nights. We didn't want to leave. Rooms are large and beautiful and bathrooms are modern with the highest tech toto toilets that exist. Every detail is lovely about this hotel. It is a jewel. The Gion location can't be beat. The hotel hosts... More

We had seen all the rooms in the hotel and my family and I are staying in the Butterfly and it is nicely docorated and quite spacious. Hotel Mume's service is the best that you can ever get. They communicate by emails promptly. They are also quite helpful in booking for restaurant and printing out maps to where you want... More
