Our group of 7 passengers stayed in your hotel from the 1st to the 2nd of October. We were met by Miss Yuiko and ushered us to the front desk while she was assisting others with our luggages as we arrived very early for the 1pm check in. We had to leave our luggages while we took a tour of... More

We used to stay at the Miyako in Higashiyama. Then the Miyako became a Westin and we looked elsewhere. Our first stay was in a double room - very crowded as other reviews have mentioned. Our second visit we booked a twin and we were much happier. The room had more space and we were not tripping over each other... More

This hotel was a great anchor for our 4 day stay in Kyoto. Lots of transportation nearby (bus, metro, train 2 stops away on the metro). Several convenience stores around, and also lots of various restaurants. The service was beyond polite, staff - very helpful and friendly with good English, they helped us with navigation and sightseeing. The room was... More

Three out of four guest rates Hotel Gimmond in Kyoto as “Very Good” or “Excellent”. As this is pretty far from our rating, we clearly constitute a minority. Never the less, this hotel was the greatest disappointment during our 20 days trip though Japan. Upon arrival we were offered a tiny, cramped double room on the 7th floor. The room... More

The hotel looks nice on outside. Pretty close to subway and restaurants. The room is extremly small but typical of Japan. Bathroom about the size of one you will find on motorhome. My biggest issue is how incredibly thin the walls are, you can hear talking, snoring and other people using the resteroom. And the pillows are half hard and... More

The hotel room itself was small, but it was clean and had a good view of the city and the mountains that surrounded Kyoto. It was very close to the Kyoto subway and is in walking distance to a few cultural exhibits, so you can save some money on bus/subway fare if you want to cluster a couple days worth... More

Stayed here for two nights in March 2013. The room is your stock standard Japanese hotel room, small but it was comfortable and clean. Staff is great, they were very helpful. The location is great, short walk to subway line, short walking distance to Nishiki Market and good restaurants close by. You can pretty much walk to various parts of... More

Small hotel in a very good location 1 minute walk from metro (if you get out of the right exit, as there are many). Has two restaurants inside, we tries the Italian and it was very nice not too good though. Very many restaurants in the area, ask them about the one in the near ally - it was great!... More

I enjoyed my stay in this hotel which is in a good central location. Close to the food market, Gion and the nighlife area. The rooms were basic but very clean and had all the facilities i needed. I would definitely stay here again.
