We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Gimmond and were glad of our choice. In our opinion the positives outweigh the negatives by far. Positives: -Well located to subway (2 minute walk). A couple of stops from Kyoto station -Short walk to shopping, restaurants, Nishiki market, Gion, Pontocho -Great size double room, with a wardrobe. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Good AC... More

I'm Canadian but now living in Tokyo for over 2 years with my Japanese wife. For a while, I've been wanting to visit Kyoto and experience ryding the Shinkansen (bullet train). Usually when I travel, I like to stay in a hotel which is near the action but at the same time quiet enough so you can rest and get a... More

We had 3 rooms; two small doubles and a spacious twin room in the corner of the hotel. The small double rooms did have enough space for a desk and chairs, and closet for luggage and clothing. The bathroom was adequate, but showing its age. The fixtures were worn and yellowed, but clean. The room and furniture were also clean,... More

Really enjoyed my stay here. It was a bit of a pain to get to as you'll need to jump on the subway from the main railway station if you don't want to walk 30 mins with your luggage. The subway was very fast and efficient, though be warned that if you're heading to the main station in the morning,... More

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
