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 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
