A little difficult to locate - the entrance is on a small side street. The hotel Kanra is a discreet small hotel which is beautifully designed - subtle lighting, designer furniture & our rooms had western style beds plus a separate tatami area. The staff are excellent - helpful, extremely polite & always on hand to help with anything. The... More

First it's location is great - walking distance from Kyoto station, few minutes from Nishi Honganji temple and half an hour of walk from Kyoto Imperial palace. The entrance is located in tiny street. The staff was wonderful. The room was really spacious with enormous and very comfortable bed, separate sitting area in Japanese style and with a huge bathroom... More

The staff really go the extra mile in ensuring your happiness, we had a slight mix up in bookings and their service recovery was remarkable. Always willing to help with a ready smile, this hotel is like home, but better. The room is very comfortable, internet speed was fastest I have experienced.

I loved this place due to the fantastic staff, amazing rooms ( stayed in a huge and beautiful western/Japanese room) and great food. The room had a huge bed, separate study area and an amazing bathroom with a large wooden bath. Location wise it is next to a large temple and only a 10 min walk to Kyoto station so... More

We opted to stay in the traditional Japanese room – which was lovely – it has two floors per suite. On the first floor was a bedroom with tatami (woven-straw) flooring with mats for beds (very comfortable) and the toilet near the entrance door. There is no tv on this level. And as mentioned, there is really no place to... More

Our room came with wifi and bluetooth speakers and everyone's gadgets just connected and worked perfectly. The rooms are large and a blend of western and Japanese and it just felt like home rather than a hotel. The hotel is located south of the CBD and close to the train station and it's maybe a 20 minute walk or a... More

Not a 5-star international brand name but a brilliant hotel. The hotel lobby is very small but the rooms are impressive. Much bigger than the hotel rooms in Tokyo. It has really big beds, tv area, an iPod dock, wooden bathtub, great staff and customer service. It's 2-mins walk from Gojo metro station making commuting very easy. There's a 7Eleven... More

I loved this hotel. LOOOOOOOOOOVED IT! Stayed only for one night and wished I could have stayed more. I stayed in room 301, beautiful room with a cool Japanese style, very spacious with a little desk area, wonderful bathroom with wooden bath tub. Very cute yukata type of room gown. Staff were extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful with directions and... More

We stayed at Kanra after three wonderful nights at Mume so it was always going to be difficult to match the Mume experience. Kanra certainly won out in the room stakes - our room was big and very well laid out with massive bed, comfy tv area and huge bathroom complete with big tub. Service was somewhat impersonal and lacked... More

Small boutique Hotel, with spacious contemporary rooms. The bed was enormous, and simply enveloped our tired, well travelled bodies. Great location, with zero outside noise. Would recommend to anyone. Staff attentive and extremely helpful
