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

Great location! Just a few minutes from the subway. There are restaurants including a a 24-hrs restaurant and some convenient stores nearrby the hotel. It's easy to travel around in Kyoto while staying in Gimmond hotel.

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
