Nice hotel. We had A 3 bed room which had good space for 3 people. Unfortunately one bed was a couch and very hard. They tried to put a pair of blankets on top, but still hard. Not so nice. Rooms were kept very clean. Very nice staff. Small (cruisestyle) bathroom, that we learned is typical for hotels in Japan.... More

No luxury, but medium class and conveniently located. Easy to walk to both Gion district with Geishas as well as some temples. Also close to subway. Free wifi. Double room w double bed was quite small, hard to move when having luggage on the floor. Our two kinds shared double room with separate beds, a little more expensive, but much... More

Helpful staff. Great location. Older hotel but the friendly and effective staff made up for that. Near 7-11, restaurants, shopping and places of interest. Cozy bathroom but that will be true of many hotels (except for the very expensive. Clean, tidy room!

I really like the facade of this hotel. One thing I was extremely surprised and happy about is that it's really close to the nearest subway station. It also has convenient stores and shopping stores close by. Another bonus is that Nishiki market is only about a 10-15 minute walk away which is pretty awesome. This hotel is also close... More

English see below 立地良し。建物は古く、部屋は小さいがコスパはいい。しかし、改善できる点は多い。 ①従業員がすぐ近くの有名な店(ホテル)を知らず、案内ができない(たとえば、2分で行けるパン屋のポールへの存在すら知らない従業員がいた) ②喫煙場所:フロントからエレベーターホールに行くところにあり、喫煙者がいると必ず、必ず受動喫煙することになる、たいっへん迷惑 ③ピアスを置き忘れた。確かに小さなものだったが、チェックアウトの翌日電話して出てこなかった。大忙しで掃除させられているのかなぁ、もうちょっと周りを見る余裕を持った仕事をさせてあげてくださいよ! The location is good: close to the Pref Museum, Metro Sta, and others. Shijo is in a walking distance and there is a lovely old townspeople's homes/shops. The building is old and room, small, but overall this hotel's cost performance is good. Below are things I noticed: 1) the staff should be given... More

It's had to find fault with this basic little hotel because of its location. The only thing I could comment on was the pillows were very hard. The rooms are adequate, quite old but clean. It was the first hotel that we have stayed in that had a decent wardrobe to hang clothes and you could store your suitcases in... More

This hotel is extremly well located. But to pricy for what you get in my opinion. Staff is nice. We were trawelling with our 13 year old son so we thougt it was a plus to have the italian restaurant but it has very limeted menu. We did not try the japaniese restaurant, just had a drink..but it seemed popular.

Although Gimmond hotel is only a three star hotel and is not the most stylish hotel in terms of design, I recommend staying here for it's friendliness, helpful staff and great location. It is just two minutes walk away from Karasuma Oike subway and less than ten minutes walk from the heart of downtown Kyoto. There is always helpful and... More

Stayed 5 nights. Booked into single room which was a little bit of a squeeze though the bed was large enough and comfortable. Bathroom was of decent size. I wouldn’t say that the walls are paper thin because I didn’t have any problems with noise on 4 out of the 5 nights but loud talking and TV at high volume... More

This hotel is in a great location in central Kyoto, a short walk to the Imperial Palace and also close to a subway station. The rooms are small and basic, but reasonably clean, with working wifi. The staff are very friendly. I had no problems.

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
