My friends and I spent 3 days and 2 nights in Kyoto, very close to the Nishiki Markets. The Gimmond hotel Kyoto was central and comfortable. Rooms in Japan are all smaller than I am used to but none-the-less adequately comfortable. The hotel is central to many temples, the Kyoto Museum and the markets. There is a restaurant downstairs if... More

I stayed for 4 nights in a event of conference in the international conference center of Kyoto. It is very easy to reach after getting off the airport and convenient to connect to meeting center. At night, it is an easy walking distance to all interesting areas. The room is small, but it is typical Japan's room. So, I don't... More

We really enjoyed this hotel. The room was fairly standard for Japanese business hotels - perfectly clean, not massive but perfectly decent size for a base to explore the city. The location was the best part - really easy to get to on the subway after we arrived in the main station, then perfectly placed to explore all the different... More

Pros: + Rooms and bathrooms bigger than I expected + Very clean, but this was to be expected in a country like Japan + Excellent service -- Japanese people are so polite and friendly! + Good food + Great location -- just a 2-minute walk to Karasumaoike Station (where the Karasuma and Tozai subway lines intersect), and around 20 mintues...

The location is great, pretty close to the subway Karasuma Oike Station (烏丸御池). The interior is a bit old but maintained in good condition. The clerks of the front desk are nice and helpful. really recommend!!!

The size of the room is very good, clean and location excellent. I would stay here again. Fast free Wi-fi. [One caveat: Smokers are allowed to sit in lobby ugh, very unappealing to the international tourist. The tourist all-day transportation card (train and bus) sold at front desk does not inlude JR trains, dont buy unless you use bus a... More

The only thing going for this hotel is the great location. It is VERY old and dated and rooms are very small, old and dated and very BASIC. Bathrooms can just fit one person in them! Also smells of smoke - rooms are non smoking but you can smoke throughout hotel and foyer is full of smokers. Very noisy as... More

The location is good and the staff seem to be trying their best, but the hotel leaves a lot to be desired. Room was tiny - no drawers to put clothes away on a 4 day stay. Room was also very warm and the thermostat did nothing. Staff advice was to use the window to cool it down.

This hotel is in a great location close to the subway and not far from Kyoto station. The only thing was I found the bed terribly uncomfortable and so were the pillows. I stayed here 3 nights and did not really sleep well. Apart from that it has everything you need for a basic stay. However I would recommend spending... More

The hotel is at the heart of Kyoto. We stayed in a double room which was quite large for Japanese standards. I had also stayed in a single room some years ago which is small, but again Japanese standards... The breakfast is not cheap neither particularly filling. However I would recommend the hotel due to its professional service and location.
