We only stayed in the Hotel Mume for 1 night, but it was a highlight of our travels in Japan. The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful -- stylish and intimate feeling, and the rooms are stunning but very comfortable. The staff are unbelievably gracious and helpful, and the welcome/happy hour invoke a real feeling of generosity. The breakfast was so delicious, and the staff kindly accommodated my food allergy!
This hotel is really well-located. It is expensive, but it is worth every penny and I wish I could have stayed there longer.
