My husband and I stayed at this hotel upon tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed. The hotel is located in historical Gion area, where there are many places of a walking distance. We had booked a western style room, however we thought we booked a Japanese style, upon request and availability, we stayed one night in a western style, and... More

Found this hotel on Trip Advisor and once again wasn't disappointed! Great location and walking distance to what we called the older town of Kyoto (restaurants along the river and the Geisha Quarter!). The hotel had breakfast but we didn't take a dinner option as there are so many dining options in Kyoto. Great value and very well appointed. The... More

Maifukan is located wonderfully in the heritage district of Gion. You can walk all around the area with many restaurants, temples and shops available to you. Despite the hustle and bustle outside, once you get into your room, it is all quiet and comfortable. We choose the western style room as we like our creature comforts and Maifukan did not... More

We stayed at Maifukan Hotel in the historic Gion district of Kyoto and loved it. As part of a three week trip, we decided to choose middle-range hotels with good ratings in Trip Advisor. This hotel is minimalist but wonderful. We stayed in a western room. While we missed having a Japanese-style bathroom, generally the room was spacious and clean,... More

In all the years I have travelled I have rarely raved on about the high level of customer service that this hotel has to offer. In particular Naoka Yamamoto & Fumio Takagi. Naoka went out of her way every day for the 2 days we stayed there, over and above in her role to help my son and I plan... More

Location is ideal in Gion, very near Geisha district and several temples and gardens that must be seen. We had a Japanese style room with its own Onsen. Fantantic. I have stayed before at several Ryokan around Japan and think this one is not only very good but the price is very reasonable. Breakfast comes with for an extra 15... More

I traveled with a friend to Kyoto in May. We were fortunate that a friend recommended the Maifukan to us. Our experience was wonderful. The hotel is small and personal, and well situated in the Gion district, in walking distance to many places of interest .Our rooms were very attractive, spotless (that almost goes without saying in Japan!).and roomy by...

I honestly don't know why this ryokan is so expensive. You can find the exact same for much cheaper. You pay extra for breakfast, with one meal provided, and you pay extra to check out late (i.e. noon!!). The Japanese style room we had was alright, nothing special, the best part was the shower honestly. The AC was very loud... More
