Stayed 2 nights in January 2017
Good sized room, helpful staff”
We stayed for 2 nights in a Western style room. It was comfortable and roomy, with tea and coffee bags provided along with delicious rice cakes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. No laundry facilities, but there is a great commercial laundry just over the road if you need to do some washing. Very well located to the city centre and Higashiyama shrines. Overall, a nice place to stay. Would definitely stay there again.

A small hotel on a quiet side street in the bustling Gion District of Kyoto. ”
We had a western style room (they also have Japanese style rooms with futons), very spacious and comfortable. Many temples and shrines and beautiful gardens to see in this traditional, old-Japan neighborhood . Everywhere you look, beauty! The Maifukan staff was excellent, everybody pleasant and very helpful, with good English speaking skills. A lovely Japanese style breakfast is available right in the hotel, for an added price. We loved the peace and quiet of the hotel, with the main streets of Gion just a short walk away. Convenient to public transportation, and also a great area for walking. For me, the only negatives were 1) the firmness of the beds, because I am accustomed to a softer mattress, and 2) they did not have a public bath (hot tub spa) on site. But these small complaints were outweighed by the many positives.

Great ryokan with great location”
We spent a night at the annex Karaku coming from Osaka. The staff were very polite and helpful. It was near Yasaka shrine so whenever we arrive by taxi it is easy to inform the driver. It is also near several shops, restaurants and train station. It was a wonderful stay and experience for me and my family.

Quaint Ryokan/ Hotel”
It was clean; the location was convenient for exploring the Gion area; they had apple tv!
Our stay was ok - we were there for one night only and chose not to eat at the ryokan. We had opted for one of the traditional rooms. A few disappointing things although not deal breakers for our trip. 1. we checked in at 8pm but our room wasn't ready...it was being made for the evening. We did not know this was the tradition so I guess they expect you to announce when you will arrive? After a long travel, we were asked to wait in the small lobby to await our room being made up. 2. Check out is at 10am! We asked for late check out but this was not possible / allowed. You would expect a little more flexibility given how expensive the room was!!

One of the nicest in Kyoto ”
The beautiful Japanese style room. The friendly staff. The new and amazing breakfast
I have stayed in this hotel many times and have always found it the perfect hotel ryokan in Kyoto. I thought it could not get any better, thus time, however, they added a new breakfast. It turned out to be one of the best I gave had anywhere. Not only was it an exceptional value, but it was haute cuisine. It was washoku at its best. Do not mis it!
