Centrally located property , easily accessible from the Subway line. Room size is compact, yet good value for money. Friendly staff, restaurant just on the ground floor , accessible to visit important landmarks in Kyoto by foot,train and bus. Dont forget to walk for 10 min to reach Nijo Castle and watch the wonderful lighting they put up for the... More

Enjoyed my stay in Kyoto very much. HGK is in an excellent location. Approximately, a 1/8 of a mile from the subway stop where both Kyoto subway lines can be accessed. Plus, there are restaurants and stores within walking distance. The VERY excellent Nishiki Market is approximately a half a mile away. The staff in true Japanese fashion were super... More

The hotel is not badly located. The staff are friendly . The hotel I feel is lacking in character seen as it is in such a beautiful city. The hotel has everything you need but just a little dated. The toilets are clean but you feel like you are in a ship .

Located couple of small blocks from Karasumaoike metro station and right next to Museum of Kyoto, Hotel Gimmond is absolutely in a perfect location. The hotel is a bit dated but everything is clean and comfy. Also you can purchase metro or bus day passes directly from the lobby. And there's plenty of eats on few blocks down to Nishikikoji...

We had a small double room on the 10th floor which was quiet and therefore we had two good nights' sleep. The bed was firm (as we like) and there was a tv, free reliable wi-fi, kettle, hair dryer and shiseido products (shampoo etc). The heating controls allowed us to modify the room's temperature which was essential given we were... More

Good value at about $40 per night given it's close to the subway and there's a public bath-house a block away. This area of Kyoto is walking distance to many attrcations or the key bus-stops. The wifi was suss, did keep changing wifi room numbers to get a reliable service.

Stayed 3 nights. Selected on strength of location (short walk from intersection of only two Kyoto metro lines). However, we found that using the bus and or walking is more convenient than the metro in Kyoto, so next time we'd probably select a hotel closer to Kawaramachi (parallel to the river) which has a lot of buses plying it. The... More

Smoking is allowed in the lobby, so be prepared if you are a non-smoker. Location is great, rooms are an ok size, but holey moley, the bathroom reminds me of a small compact bathroom I've seen on a Navy ship! Be careful getting up in the middle of the night, that you don't trip over the step up into the... More
