    Classic Hotel with Amazing Value”

    Hotel is conveniently located (4 mins walk from Subway, 2 mins from main Bus stop, 15 mins from Nisshiki Market). Its very clean and room is quiet too, with a very good price. Totally worth it! One thing to remind is that the room only has heater (no cooling aircon), since the weather is cold already.

    Perfect”

    The hotel is located a five minute walk from Karasuma Oike metro station in Kyoto, which you can use to access the Karasuma and Tozai metro lines. It is a five minute walk from Nishiki market, one metro stop away from Nijo Castle, and two stops away from the JR line at Nijo. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation, but it didn't affect us. The Wi-Fi, hot water, bathroom, bed, were all excellent. The customer service was spectacular. They made our room every day and they also held our luggage for us for most of the day. The adjoining Italian restaurant does a breakfast buffet at just under 1,000 yen per person, which is excellent. Not a single negative thing to write. Just be aware that as of October last year Kyoto introduced a city tax that is payable when you check out.

    Hotel Gimmond Kyoto is well located only a few minutes walk from the Karasumeoike station. This meant that it was easy to get there from Kyoto station, but also it was close enough to the centre that I was able to walk to Nijo Castle and Nishiki Markets with no problems at all. The staff were very welcoming and very politely explained that there are constructions going on until 2019 (which I was aware of since it had been on their website). I personally I was never in the hotel during the day so I didn’t hear any construction noises, but can understand that if you need to stay in the room during the day with a migraine that those noises would hardly be helpful. The room I found to be clean and simple. I was provided with a face towel, a bath towel, normal toiletries as well as a yukuta (PJs). I spent most of my time outside which meant i ate out, but there is also a Japanese restaurant and a Italian restaurant in the hotel. I would not hesitate to come back when i visit Kyoto again.

    This is my second time staying at Gimmond and the main reason I chose the hotel was its proximity to the Karasuma Oike station, which is just 5 minutes away from the hotel. The hotel is a bit old though but location-wise, it is the best.

    It is value for money. The location is neither too far nor too near to tourist spot and subway station, however, all within the walking distance, I enjoyed the nights ape lighting while taking 5-10 minutes walking from subway or nishiki market at night back to hotel, coz the buildings and plants along the street were just too beautiful.

    Strategically-located hotel”

    Hotel Gimmond might look and feel a bit outdated i.e. the room looks and feels like a early 90s hotel room but i didn't really mind. What i was really grateful about this hotel is that it is conveniently located near the train station. It is indeed 5-7 minute walk away from the Karasuma Oike station, which makes travelling around the city easy. There are plenty of convenient stores around the hotel and a shopping centre 10-minute walk away. Definitely worth the money.

    Great location!”

    Fantastic location, but beware, the room was incredibly tiny! Location is fantastic, we did a lot of walking around and even rented bikes to go around Kyoto. We did not need to use any public transportation in the town (But we were also not on any time of time crunch or anything) and we were able to walk to a lot of places. Would stay again based on location alone!

    This hotel is in a prime location in terms of transportation and sites. It has a beautiful lobby and the rooms are tidy and comfortable. Although they are small, as most Japanese hotel rooms are. The restaurants are slightly overpriced, but there are many other options in the area. The wifi is good and each room has its own, so it's quite fast.
