    Fantastic location, service”

    We had a nice stay at this ryokan. We couldn't ask for a better location, just a couple of minutes walk from one of the main streets of Kyoto and also from a lovely shrine. The service at the ryokan was also kind and generous. I wish the bathrooms were a bit bigger, but alas they are probably typical of what you find on Japan.

    Karaku is within walking distance to almost all the places of interest in Gion. The ryokan has modern amenities. The staff are helpful with directions etc.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. It was comfortable and clean. Only missing item is the onsen.

    Lovely Japanese Style Hotel”

    Public bath, room service and great service from the staffs

    The traditional Japanese style room left a great impression to us and the staffs are all very polite. When requested, they were very kind to show us the sightseeing route around Kyoto and with full information regarding the transport and location. Daily necessities such as tooth brush and toothpaste, towel and shampoo etc are all provided. Every day they will refill those used items and clean the room when we were out. So we have a nice and clean room everyday when we went back to the hotel. In short, it was a fantastic and enjoyable Japanese Style Hotel.

    Good customer services, clean environment, has a public bath

    When we arrived at the hotel, the staffs greet us with smiles. Then they guided us to our room and show us the surrounding of the hotel. The second night when we returned to hotel, we are pleased to see that all our rooms had been cleaned. They changed the futons and put everything in the room back to their original position. In addition, there is a public bath available to use. It was an interesting experience. In short, we are happy and feel comfortable staying in Gion Ryokan Karaku Hotel.

    English speaking, location, Japanese public bath

    The hotel staff was super gracious and they did their best to accommodate us. The Japanese beds were very comfortable and the room size was larger that I expected. Love the large public bath, definitely give it a try. The convenient location is super wonderful, we were able to access all the lovely spots by Godai Ji and Kiyomizu with ease.

    best location

    The hotel is the right choice if you are going to visit Gion, Shijo Dori, Yasaka Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The room size is large compares with other hotel in the same area. The hotel is about 10mins away from the Gion Shijo station. So it is better to take the bus between the stations, attractions and the hotel.

    I really loved this place for its traditional japanese appeal and location in gion. The only thing I did not care for, which is common in japan, was the smoking in the lobby. I am a non-smoker.

    Traditionelles Erlebnis, aber nicht großartig”

    Traditionelles Zimer, Blick auf Schrein

    Das Zimmer ist unprätentiös und enthält nur das nötigste. Die Futons zum Schlafen werden abends aufbereitet. Die Dusche ist winzig und wirkt unpassend. Das Personal ist zwar hilfreich, aber auch schnell überfragt. Die Empfehlung zum Abendessen war nur mittelmäßig, Frühstück konnte nicht nachgebucht werden und die im Zimmer noch beworbenen Fahrräder zum Sightseeing waren auch nicht verfügbar. Zudem war das Spa (bzw. der Gemeinschaftswaschraum) geschlossen. Insgesamt schon ok, sauber und schön, für den Preis (300 EUR) aber deutlich zu teuer.
