Great location in Gion, near a park and temples, bus stop by hotel door, many restaurants nearby, and 5-10 minute walk to 2 different train stations. Higher rooms have a nice view of hills. The hotel looked a bit old inside and there was no washing machine or dryer available, hence the 4-stars for facilities. Overall good value.

Great location”
We made a last-minute booking here as we decided to stay in Kyoto an extra 2 days. Staff are extremely kind and helpful, we do not speak much Japanese and this was no problem at all, they always had an english-speaking staff member available. Everything was perfect except two things: the pillows were flat and the shower-head did not have enough pressure and was too small. But the location and cleanliness was excellent.

Kyoto APA Gion Excellent”
It is not a 'flashy' Hotel, but the rooms are not that claustrophobic as everybody expects in Japan. I have read several reviews before I booked and noticed that people love to complaint about everything. For no reason. So, there IS a storage, therefore you do not trip over your luggage, unless you are too lazy to keep it organized. Also - that often mentioned: shower/tap usage strange looking device is easy enough for the 5 years old kid to work out. So, do not listen to the complainers! All works perfectly well and the room cleaning Ladies are as cautious as professional. About the Receptions People: they all are as helpful as they can be - the courtesy is overwhelming. The location could not be better; HONESTLY; you are back in time. I have limit on words here, therefore >>> GOOD+ anka

Great location!”
Perfect location! So close to tons of restaurants, coffee shops, bars within walking distance. Also close to metro! Loved the Gion area. We were able to walk to a couple different temples and shrines within 15-20 min of hotel. Room is small (typical in Japan) but clean and comfy bed. Pillows are very flat but we were able to get bigger ones on request. Breakfast was pretty good with Asian and Western options. Great value and would stay again!

Great Location”
My wife and I traveled to Kyoto from Osaka. We took the Hankyu Line over JR because the terminal stop at Kawaramachi was just a 10-minute walk to the hotel in Gion, near the Yasaka Shrine. This was the perfect location for us as we explored the eastern side of Kyoto from the Ginkakuji to Kiyomizu and further south to Byodo-in and Fushimi Inari. The hotel room was small but comfortable and well designed. If you're traveling with large suitcases, it might be too tight. Check-in/out was quick and easy, having pre-paid thru Agoda. The front desk is on the second floor, and we bypassed it most of the time during our four-night stay. So we didn't interact much with staff, but had no needs or complaints. Many top sites are within walking distance, and several nearby buses take you everywhere else. This is a colorful part of Kyoto, where dozens of visitors rent yukata (summer kimono) to stroll the streets, and you can still catch a rare Geisha or Maiko going to or fro.

I love the location of this hotel - so easy to access many places. I was upgraded to twin room on top floor looking north across Shijo dori - a view I have not had from here before and really enjoyed.

Amazing location ”
This hotel is located just a few steps away from Hanami-koji Street and close to most of Gion's major sites, allowing me to walk all across the area a few times a day. The room was very clean and comfortable and had everything I needed, and the staff we're very courteous.

Nice location. ”
The hotel is very close to many shrines, stores, cafes and there is a Starbucks downstairs. The location is perfect for you if you are interested in the shrines and there is a cool coffee shop down the road built in a sacred site. It uses the well water for the coffee.. The hotel is nice bathrooms are very small but the tub is nice and deep. All in all I would recommend it.

Fantastic location in Gion and the staff were friendly and helpful! However, this is very obviously an older hotel and though I had a no smoking room there was a definite smell of stale smoke at all times.. on with the A.C No self service laundry facilities onsite which was a little inconvenient. A coin laundry is located a couple of blocks down but required my limited Japanese to read the signage and actually locate it.. I would recommend and stay here again myself purely based on friendly staff and great location, just aware that the facilities are more dated than other APA hotels I have stayed in.

I stayed on the sixth floor and could hear people outside. Even worse, I could her people in the halls very clearly and the drink machine that kept giving change at all hours of the night made too much noise. Except for the noise; which I need my sleep, it was good.
