We spent 5 nights here and couldn't have been more delighted with the hotel. As a family of 5 we had the top floor to ourselves in the stunning Flower room and the Butterfly room ( everything you could want is in the rooms along with the high tech loos!)
Some of the previous reviews mention that the attentive service and helpfulness of the staff can be overbearing. I have to totally disagree with the overbearing comments - from our first emails enquiring about the hotel to our departure I felt they went over and beyond any expectations we had. They will help you plan your itinerary, work out the best way to travel, book trains, print out information on anything you want, food recommendations, temples to see that are maybe aren't listed in guide books. All of this was a huge help and we were delighted that they took such an interest in our trip. Other hotels should take note and raise their game!
Boutique hotels sometimes run the risk of not being child/teenager friendly but absolutely not the case here. Again, friendliness with the balance of good humour and fun was perfect.
Hotel Mume is the perfect location for exploring the Gion quarter as so much of it is within walking distance - lots of little streets with restaurants and tea shops. If you need to go to Kyoto train station it is 10 mins in a taxi - the station itself is a spectacle too, worth a visit.
Breakfast is delicious. Baskets of home made breads and pastries, fresh fruit, soup, freshly squeezed grapefruit juice.
There's a reason this hotel is the number one in the tripadvisor reviews so my advice is just book it and don't bother looking anywhere else. We loved our stay here...
