    We stayed here for 5 days and had an excellent experience. Very clean traditional hotel located in the older part of Gion, a 1 minute walk from Yasaka Shrine and 15 minutes from Kiyomizudera. There is also a coin laundry across the street, which we found very useful given how hot it was!

    The staff spoke limited English. This wasn't a problem for us as one of our group speaks Japanese, but we noticed another foreigner having trouble communicating his desire for a lan cable for his room. This isn't a complaint - any English in Japanese hotels is impressive and checking in and out is straightforward enough - but it might be something to be aware of for some travelers.

    In real downtown of the city, close to any good looking place. In a silent place

    The staff were very helpful and attentive (although English was not strong). They did everything they could to assist and make sure our stay was comfortable and japanese room set up appropriately. The location was excellent (walking distance to Gion, for visiting traditional and city life). Excellent value for money compared with others in similar location. We would go back again.

    Ok so firstly I recommand this hotel because of the location you are literally 2 min away from all best location in gion, its beautiful to come back at night, really feel special.the staff speak enough english, the room was nice, the size was pretty good, I had the japanese style one and I have no regret.the only thing is they do not provide breakfast but its 3 min away from the hotel.i wouldnt classified this as a ryokan its an hotel with japanese room style. The only bad comment I have is how to access the hotel, with google map I ended up being 5 min away from the hotel, I had to ask some worker (thank for they kindness) and they call the hotel and brought me there, the receptionnist had to come and meet us at halway!!its a bit expensive but its worth it, dont hesitate!

    We stayed in a Japanese style room which was enjoyable and culturally appropriate. The staff were amazing! They went out of their way to be helpful and even anticipated things that we did not think about asking. They looked up train times and gave us clear directions. They made suggestions about our tour itinerary based on local weather forecasts.

    It cost a little more than we had wanted to pay.

    The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is amazing.

    They only included one teabag in the room and you need to go to reception to get milk and sugar for coffee.

    Spotless clean, extremely courteous staff, excellent location right on the bus routes to all the interesting places in Kyoto, and short walking distance form Gion corner and the antique district of Shinmonzen st.

    Breakfast is not available.

    Very good location for the temples and Gion district.

    The staff was polite but not too flexible. For instance insisting that the rental bike is returned at 7PM with no good explanation, or wanting to charge 2000 yen for 1 hour late check-out. The room price was quite steep but this probably has to do with the fact that end of November is one of the most popular holiday periods...

    I loved the japanese style room and traditional bath. The staff were tremendously friendly and considerate. One even gave me a little warming bag to keep my hands warm on my travels! They were wonderful. I wish I could have stayed there longer but it was all booked up.

    It was a bit expensive but I was there during peak season and every other hotel in kyoto was going for about the same price if not more.

    Location is very good, at the heart of Gion. Staff was very helpful, and the room was perfectly clean and well-organized. Nearby coffee-house is also perfect for breakfast, and afternoon tea. We had a very calm and relaxing stay at Gion Maifukan.

    This is the second time of staying at the Gion Maifukan. We liked the traditional experience of sleeping on futon and bathing in the Japanese style. The location is excellent as it is near the famous temple and view of Kyoto.

    The rrom was comfortable after all our travelling. The staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. The location was excellent for an older couple who were unable to walk very far,but who wanted to see their favourite temples.

    We could have done with some breakfast included.

    We had had very happy stay at the Gion Maifukan. The rooms were very clean and perfect for relaxing after business in Kobe. We chose a Japanese style room as we had not stayed in one before and found it a very comfortable and relaxing. The hotel rented bikes to us which proved to be a highlight of the trip and we cycled along the river bank and visited many historic sights. At each site we locked up the bikes and left them with no problems. The hotel also recomended the once a month Kyoto flea market which had a huge selection of pottery art works kimonos etc, another great day ! The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly with several speaking good english. Wi Fi is available free in the room. We did not eat in the hotel as there is a wide selection of restuarants near by, a coffee house 5 mins walk has a great breakfast to start the day, we will be back to saty again !!
