My partner and I had the pleasure of visiting Hotel Mume for 7 nights last week. We couldn't have been more pleased with the location, quality of service, our room, and the overall experience. Their staff to guest ratio is almost 1:1 which is helped by the fact that they only have 6 or 7 rooms. A great breakfast each morning and happy hour each evening in the lounge, rounds out the exceptional experience. The service and level of attentiveness is unmatched. The best way to put is they genuinely take an interest and pride in ensuring you have an exceptional experience both at the hotel and while exploring Kyoto. They helped with every booking, transportation, shopping - you name it. I travel all over the world for business - this was absolutely the best service experience at a hotel that I've ever had.
