Nested in the heart of Kyoto, Gion, this hotel is what we needed for our two night stay.

Our room with 4 twin beds was able to accommodate 4 adults and 1 kid without issues. Hotel room was quite big for Japan standards! Toiletries were provided for, including new pajamas every night. Bathroom was tiny but clean. American hot breakfast was included and there were two different options everyday.

This place is walking distance to a few temples. And there are a lot of eating places in the area. There are also a lot of choices for Kimono rentals in the area. Short taxi ride to Nishiki market.

Overall we had a pleasant stay and would stay again.

Date of stay: April 2019

Staff were super pleasant and helpful. Hotel sponsored neighborhood tour was a highlight of the trip. Rooms are small but very adequate and the location is perfect. Everything was super clean. Good elevator and staff is helpful with bags. Breakfast was way above average with good choices every day. I would highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again if we visit Kyoto.

Everyone we interacted with at the Hotel Kyoto Inn Gion was pleasant, helpful, and friendly, from the reception desk to the breakfast staff. Even the maid, who we interrupted one morning as she was cleaning up our room, couldn’t have been more accommodating and cheerful. The hotel is in a great location and with a little help from the front desk we were soon finding our way by bus and metro all around Kyoto. Our room was comfortable, as were the beds. At first, I was a little nervous about the pillows which seemed too firm, but they turned out to be the most comfortable pillows we encountered on the trip. For the complimentary breakfast every morning, we were always offered two choices. The choices were displayed at the breakfast room entry so we could easily decide which we would like. This hotel was a great place to stay and we would highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Kyoto.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights in April. It is in the centre of Gion and on the same road as one of the most photographed cherry blossom areas in Kyoto. Only a half kilometre to a subway and within walking distance of many temples and shrines plus old Geisha street and district.
The staff were always friendly and helpful.
Rooms were a little on the small size but were still adequate for us. Also the first hotel we have stayed in where we could open windows. Although would not recommend doing it at night as far too noisy. Breakfast was a choice of two meals usually scrambled eggs with a sausage and bread or an Asian style breakfast.
If I was to return to Kyoto I would definitely use this hotel again.

Room tip: We were on the fifth floor with a small window onto the street. Good for getting fresh air.

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.
