We stayed at Hotel Mume for 4 nights while in Kyoto. This is a small boutique hotel with 4 types of rooms. We stayed in the " wind" room which was spacious and comfortable. The hotel is conveniently located near the heart of the Gion district on a street full of artesian stores. It's a little expensive but includes free happy hour and a complete breakfast. It is immaculate! Yoshie, Meyuki and the rest of the staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. They print off directions to give cab drivers for each leg of your daily itinerary, make sure taxi drivers have thorough instructions before you get near one, will provide awesome recommendations, and could not be nicer. Service is phenomenal. It's an entire staff of 5- star concierges. Impressive!!!
