We stayed one night in the twin room, very spacious and modern. The price was very reasonable with breakfast. We also woke up at 6 AM and joined in the monks morning practices with other guests.

We enjoyed this place so much that we wanted to keep this to ourselves. We were very lucky to manage to book a room in the 11th hour. We visited Chion In many years ago and had a wonderful experience watching the New Year Eve Gong by the skilled monks. We were very excited about the new Kaikan which opened... More

We stayed for 1 night. As a plus: room size - quite big. Room nicely furbished, clean, good amenities. Also: hotel very close to Chion-in Temple and walking distance from Maruyama Park. It's a good choice, quite place in Kyoto. Close to bus station so it's easy to move to other attractions.

What we figured would maybe be a budget option compared to staying in a ryokan, it wasn't really the case here. We paid about... More
