            Wonderful hotel in the heart of Gion”
            Stayed in a tradional Japanese room for 2 nights with my husband & 10 yr old. This hotel is very clean and the futons are comfortable. The weather outside was quite cold during our visit but our room was warm and cozy. We are not used to sleeping with the heater on so we turned it off at night and it stayed a comfortable temperature. The staff were very welcoming, kind and professional. The location was really great too. I would definitely stay here again!

            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.

            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.

            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!!

            Nice tatami room in Gion. Very authentic”
            Tatami room was well-sized, location was great and price was reasonable.
            I brought my friend to Japan for the first time and wanted to give him an authentic Japanese experience in the form of a tatami room. The futons were very comfortable and we were both very impressed with the size and cleanliness of the rooms. The hotel is a short walk from Yasaka Shrine and Shijo Dori, one of the major shopping streets in Kyoto. We were able to explore Southern Higashiyama from here and take a short walk to Kiyomizudera for a spectacular view of the city. The staff were nice and attentive at the hotel and I would highly recommend Gion Maifukan to anyone visiting Kyoto for sightseeing. The only downside would be proximity to Kyoto Station. It was either a 30min walk and train trip or a 1,200 yen taxi ride.
