Impressive service from hotel staff for coordinating to the local transportation carrier, helping to solve the incident of baggage delivery delay, and rescued my travelling journey. I won't expect the same level of service elsewhere in other countries.

The hotel is old but the location is really good. Quite with just few minutes walk to tourist area and metro station. Staff is nice. Looking forward to have better facilities after renovation.

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.

The hotel is near Karasuma-oike station. There was Lawson nearby and 7eleven across. People were nice and room was very clean. I stayed there for 4 nights and I think it was a good choice. Wish I would have another chance to visit again.

Clean room, helpful staff and near subway station.”
Reasonable room size with a small table and chair. Small restaurant at lobby area and vending machine to purchase daily bus, subway or both tickets :). Staff are pleasant and helpful. Only not many restaurant nearby but if you walk about 10mins at alley behind, there's the Nishiki Market open daily from morning till about 6.00pm.

Under renovation and a bit pricey”
Just had one night $350AUD for 3 and when we got to our room found we were shrouded in scaffolding and tarps, so the room was dark and no view from either window. I noticed later I was given a piece of paper on check in apologising for the renovations and that if this wasn't suitable we shouldn't check in, but had booked online from Australia, had travelled most of the day with 80 year old mother, so changing was not an option. I just thought the cost of the room, with this going on was probably too expensive, and should have had it mentioned somewhere that this was happening. On the positive side the staff are fantastic, polite and so very helpful. The hotel is a little dated, but very clean and in a great location.

The first room we had was a bit cramped without a view so we requested a larger one if possible with a view and the staff immediately found another. We were very happy with the second room. The staff was gracious and friendly and very accommodating. Made all the difference.

Good location and staff, little bit old bathroom and door”
The hotel is near Karasuma Oike subway station. The staff is very friendly and speaks good English. The room was quite spacy but the door and the bathroom needs to be renewed. We had fairly noisy neighbors opposite our room and because of the thin door we could hear everything. The bathroom was a little bit old, it was hard to get the faucet work.

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!

Excellent Value for Money”
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.

Good location and Near Key Attractions, Has Everything you Need and Affordable
The hotel is located near Karasuma-Oike Subway Station but not too far from Kyoto Karasuma Station on the Hankyu Line which is great for people coming from Osaka Itami Airport. Located in the Nakagyoku district, places like the Sanjo-dori, Nishiki Market, Gion, Pontocho and Heian Jingu are of walking distance and definitely within cycling distance. There are plenty of food options nearby if you are hungry for food from izakayas, cafes, bistros, restaurants, tradtional ryotei etc. The hotel room itself i of a decent size for Japanese standards, it is tight but has everything you need from a stable wifi, a ensuite bathroom, cabinet for clothes etc. they also provides breakfast within 550-1500 JPY (Western or Japanese) but there are also many options nearby. The staff were friendly and nice in general. Generally, a reliable hotel and a nice choice to consider if budget and location are your main considerations especially if you are no planning to use the JR lines.

Easy to get to( three stops from Kyoto station,) on a main thoroughfare . Staff very friendly, good English speakers. Room small by western standards, but this is Japan and Asia, it is a cultural thing! Pleasant walk to several major sites and easy access to Gion. Fascinating backstreets with quality shoppe around and a bustling arcade not far away towards the river.
