I booked the Maisonette room and it was clearly the wrong choice from the moment we walked in. The room is on the ground floor, a short walk from the reception area. The entry way was tiny with a small powder room on the right. Straight ahead are two beds separated by a Japanese screen door. Following a long and... More

This little boutique hotel has an amazing interior design to offer and a great overall experience. The staff is very welcoming and will kindly suggest places to visit and eat during your stay. We stayed in a double room and we loved the big wooden bath in it. Bikes are available which is a great way to visit Kyoto. It... More

The Kanra Hotel is not a large hotel- about 30 rooms- that is a total bonus!! This hotel gave us the taste of Japanese hotel we wanted. We arrived at Kyoto railway station via the Bullet train- that was so much fun and after reading all the signs in the railway found our way to the subway system and used... More

We stayed here for 5 nights during the cherry blossom week and the hotel proved to be a nice quiet oasis away from the madness and hordes that descended upon Kyoto. Room was huge and great, blended Japanese style with modern boutique decor. Breakfast was included and the hotel was great in accommodating my wife's vegetarian needs. The front desk... More

This is an incredible hotel in a good location with great rooms. The staff are outstanding also. Thoroughly recommended. The restaurant looked very good also but we didn't have to eat there. Nice touch to have bikes available to borrow for the day also.

Rooms are spacious (we stayed in a deluxe with tatami tv and sitting area), staff were terrific for duration and the breakfasts (simple choice of western or japanese were very nice). Good Points - privacy of location and local feel of neighbourhood,... More

Stayed here for two nights on honeymoon. The staff were very friendly and even provided a room upgrade to help us celebrate. The room was fantastic - a great combination of modern luxury and Japanese style. Location was good, being a short walk from the main station.

We were carrying one single case so we walked from the Kyoto JR train station, its only few minutes away and the weather was lovely. The entrance is not as "expensive" as I thought but its stylish and quiet. Staffs are nice and say good English, room ready on time but don't miss the candy on the reception table. The... More

My daughter and I spent four nights at Hotel Kanra and it exceeded our expectations. We had a superior room, which was extremely spacious and beautifully fitted. The beds were enormous and the bathroom fittings, including the wooden bathtub, all very well done. The staff were delightful - so keen to assist us planning our activities and meals, very friendly... More
