simply great!

room, staff, location
simply perfect! only difficulty: some members of the staff couldn't speak English so well. But the rooms, as well as the ambiance, the food at diner and the very friendly staff made the whole stay to one of the best moments of our journey.

A pleasant stay

Location, room comfort
It was a great stay in hotel Kanra. The hotel is located just a min walk from Gojo Station. The staff are warm and helpful to our needs. Room is sizable (usually hotel in Japan can be pretty small) for a family of 4 pax. We will definitely visit the same hotel again if we coming back to Kyoto.

great modern boutique hotel

spacious rooms, huge bathrooms, separate seating area
booked based on other reviews. Its all true. This place is a gem. For those who like Japanese breakfasts, the food is delicious. The beds are huge and comfortable.... the heating/ air-conditioning controls are a bit confusing though. the cedar bathtubs are really special.

Kanra where?

Close to train station, clean sheets/towels, mostly friendly staff
Although Hotel Kanra is close to the train station, it's a little far from the action of Gion for our liking. Oddly, several taxi drivers we had over the few days we stayed, had a lot of difficulty finding the hotel (even with a map and the Japansese address!!!). It caused a bit of a drama with two drivers having to call the hotel (once they didn't answer so we were stuck for quite awhile). Our room had a strange layout, the bathroom sink in the main room near the bed which was a little worn and crumby however the rest of the room was pleasant. The biggest letdown was the offering of a western style breakfast, which was nothing more than a bowl of cereal, stale toast and browned pineapple - very, very expensive for what it was, I recall around $30AU pp. The staff were friendly (except for the breakfast staff who seemed confused) and assisted with directions, timetables etc.

place service comfortable bed

The room was pleasant but I was expecting a view of the city from my room. The bed was comfortable but the breakfast was mediocre and the staff in the dining area did not seem to understand English.

Japanese style hotel in great location

Location, staff and healthy restaurant
We had a great stay. The location near the train station, subway and major attractions was great. Also near a 7-11 across the street.
