I stayed in this hotel for a week when I visited my daughter in Japan. Very good location a walk away from the old Emperors Palace and Shrines. Convenience stores is on the corner and across the road. Teramachi-Dori is not too far from the hotel, where you can experience variety of Japanese cuisine, so is traditional Japanese arts & crafts
Small but functional room and bathroom for three of us. Quiet, clean hotel, stayed for two nights. Very good location, can walk to most areas easily. Close to the Imperial Palace grounds (free), and the Manga museum. Can walk to the nearby shopping arcades and restaurants for dinner. Also visited, temples, Nijo castle, Gion at night and the Philosopher's walk (catch metro). Didn't eat in the hotel. Explore the quaint side streets behind the hotel. All very calm and safe.
Gimmond has an amazing location being close to Nishiki market, the main shopping street in Kyoto and Kurasma Oike metro stop, as well as being close to several restaurants, 7/11 and a Lawson's. The only downside to the hotel, and it's a big one, is the lack of comfortable beds. My mother and I stayed here last week for 4 days and it was honestly one of the most uncomfortable stretches of time I have ever had in my life. The beds genuinely were hard to the point where we could feel the metal springs in our legs and backs as we slept. It got to the point where my mother had to ask the front desk to have some pads put on our beds. This helped a little bit, but they were still very uncomfortable. The beds are also quite low, my mother has mobility issues, so this presented an issue. Despite those issues, the customer service of the staff at the hotel was exceptional. They were always very accommodating and helpful and I really appreciate that. They ended up compensating us by taking a night off the bill. I hope they get those beds fixed, but in the meantime, if you just need a good location and bed to stay at in Kyoto, this is your place. Great pricing as well.…
Quaint hotel with superb location just a few steps away from the metro and bus stop. Exceptional staff, helpful and speak English very well. Rooms are a little old, especially the bathrooms could use a touch-up. Our room was very spacious and clean. Only disappointment was the western breakfast: you get to pick either Japanese or Western breakfast every day and because I had caught a stomach-bug we went for the western. What it is: about four types of bread, plain cornflakes, jam and two kinds of cheeses, one kind of meat. That's it. Call it continental breakfast and people won't be disappointed. We expected some eggs or beans. The croissants were delicious though.
This is a very clean hotel, with very helpful staff and a great location, close to metro, bus. Nijo Castle, Nishiki Market and Kawaramachi arcade and even Yasaka Shrine are accesible by foot. Rooms are small, but it is Japan... however they are clean and the bed are comfortable.
In October, I and my fd travel to Kyoto and this hotel has provided a excellent service to us. hotel meet most of the request that I remarked on the reservation: high level ,no corner room and away from elevator! I do not expect they can meet most of the request. Since my fd would like to have some 5yen coins for the handcraft and the gentlemen (should be the one for the overnight shift) are able to help me exchange some of money into coins!! I am so happy and surprise that he are able to help to change the coins. I will certainly rate it as excellent service!
Spotless rooms,well maintained, tastefully furnished. Front desk adequately staffed to promptly help with any matter, the adjoining restaurant is cozy and welcoming and has an ample breakfast buffet. It's a perfect location near subway and trains and situated on the main drag, Oike Dori. We watched a parade from the hotel.There were no police anywhere. The crowd was perfectly behaved, no hawkers. Loudspeakers announced the participants as they passed, showing the garb and transportation of the people in different roles over the years. There's an extensive area, Nishiki, a few blocks south, behind the hotel which is all restaurants,shops, and markets, which all seem to open after 10 AM, including a nearby Phil patisserie. There's a museum 4 minutes away, also a beautiful old bank, high high ceilings, dark wood. To the side of the hotel is a very small temple and some vendors there. We saw no homeless. …
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. If we return to Kyoto this is where we will stay again. The staff is very friendly. The place is spotless clean. The location is great for visiting lots of attractions and close to Gion with lots of old temples. Close to bus and sub way. The museum of Kyoto is just around the corner and so is the Kaleidoscope museum.
This hotel is located in an nice mixed neighborhood of offices and condominiums. It has lots of shopping, nice restaurants and plenty of taxis. The Italian restraunt in the hotel is good and should be used. The two negatives are no English TV stations and the non-Japanese breakfast needs to be improved. However, the staff and hotel is very acceptable and
We spent 4 nights in 2 double rooms as a family of four. The location is great, very central, close to Bus and metro station. It is in walking distance to manga museum, Kyoto museum, royal garden and to the main shopping streets and to many restaurants. The rooms are very spacious, bathroom small. It is very clean, furniture a little old-fashioned. You will find Kimono-like bathrobes in a drawer at your disposal. The staff is very professional and friendly. The hotel is currently under renovation, but it was not disturbing for us. Only point that could be bettered is the breakfast. It is quite expensive with little choice (the european breakfast served at their Italian restaurant). But you can have breakfast at another place. All together we were very satisfied with our stay and would stay here again anytime.…
