Expect to pay more when in Kyoto. This hotel is really budget but adequate for short stays. Staff are friendly and helpful but the rooms are in need of some serious updating. Old fashion accessories & decor. Free wifi in room which was a plus. The walls are paper thin though. Location wise is okay - very close to train... More

Kyoto is just perfection. Everyone who plans to visit Japan should have a few days to soak in the beauty of Kyoto. It's a rather expensive city compared to Osaka, but fret not, as there are many affordable options available. Hotel Gimmond is one of those options. It's great value for money as the neighbourhood is great. It's a lot... More

It was our first time in Japan so we really took the time to research on hotels that would give us the most affordable price but quality service. Hotel Gimmond did not disappoint! It is 3-5 mins. away from the Karasumaoike subway station just two stops away from the main Kyoto station. The rooms are small but enough for 2.... More

I shared a room with a friend. The room and bathroom we're quiet small. There was no room on the floor to open our luggage so we had to always carry our heavy luggage onto the bed to open it. Location wise it took us 10-15 to walk to the main shopping malls, markets and restaurants. Overall it was clean... More

I was having twin room together with my daughter who is studying here in Kyoto. This was a good and not so expensive hotel for 3 last nights in Kyoto. Room was spacious enough for two of us although it was quite old fashioned.In bathroom the taps were not these single lever mixers and shower was missing the thermostat. But... More

The title of this review pretty much sums this hotel up. It's clean, central, well priced and totally unremarkable. However, if you're on holiday and out for 8 hours each day, it doesn't really matter does it? The only noteworthy thing we found was that you can go up to the roof, open the door and literally stand around on... More

We stayed here for a few nights and location is near the shopping district but you have to walk a few blocks. I would have preferred to stay closer to the main shopping place, Kawarashima. But other than that, it's quite accessible as this is located on the road where Kyoto City Hall is and there was a subway station... More

We booked for the hotel a bit late; thus there was not many available choices. The place is quite convenient, 5mins walk to Kyoto train station and has convenient stores nearby. The room is compact with all necessary equipment. It is small though, as most of Japanese business hotel. Check in & out was smooth and fast. Pricing is above... More

If you travel around Japan enough you will appreciate two things. First, not all hotel desks are totally fluent in English. The Hotel Gimmond's desk staff are not only completely fluent in English, but they are very helpful and patient. They will make you restaurant reservations and give you any other assistance you need. Since it was the Thanksgiving Labor... More
