Very helpful pleasant staff. Rooms were a bit small and bathroom tiny, but still well kept, clean and comfortable and warm in the cold evenings. Hotel offered free breakfast and choice of western or Japanese which was an added bonus. Brilliant location and close to so many local places to see.

I was recently in the Kyoto Inn Gion with my wife for three nights. The hotel is excellent : it is located meters away from the major spots in Kyoto; the staff is extremely helpful and can give you a lot of information. The room size is big compared to Japanese standards. Moreover, they offer a breakfast in two variants, which is quite rare in Japanese hotels. Arigatoo gozaimas!!

This hotel is in Gion and within walking distance of many places to eat and sites to see. The room was small but clean. The beds were comfortable. The shower is small and you have to step over the bath which is high. Could be difficult for some to maneuver. The hotel staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly. The provided maps and guidance to catch the local bus, for restaurants etc. You can also store your luggage should you arrive early. You will want to take a taxi from the central train station if you have cases. The only reason I didn't award 5 stars is the breakfast offered is limited. We were given two choices one with eggs and the other yogurt. There was fresh cut fruit and American style coffee served with each option. the location and the pleasant hotel staff would bring me back if I were to visit Kyoto again.

We spent 5 nights here in March 2019 as a base for visiting Kyoto and sourrounding area.

Positioned, as the name implies, in Gion the hotel is very well suited for visiting the temples and historic sights in the Western part of kyoto, in fact most stuff is within walking distance. Downside I suppose is that it's maybee 10 mins from a subway or railway stop - something we were happy to live with as this place is otherwise spot on for sightseeing.

Staff are very friendly and attentive - even when you are the first person in breakfast at 6.30 they are smiley and chatty. Reception staff can't do enough for you....

Room is comfortable - and by Japanese standards quite spacious. Everything works well and the wifi is superb. Breakfast is cooked for you not huge but excellent quality.

Concidering the price was very competitive I think we did well to choose this hotel and would highly reccomend it for the location for sightseeing, the great staff and the comfy rooms.

Stayed in Kyoto Inn Gion for 4 nights. Had a wonderful experience here:
Pros:
Great location, close to many attractions, yet on a quiet street, so you don’t hear much from the traffic.
Best services provided by the staff, they really go extra miles to make you feel like home.
Nice breakfast each morning (two options)
Luggage transfer services, the staff helped us fill out the form to transfer our luggage’s to Tokyo. They even called my next hotel and let them know the luggages are on the way.
Many great restaurants are close by, they have different recommendations based on your preference.
Cons:
None

Thanks so very much for making our trip a wonderful memory! Will stay here again!
