value for money and very helpful staff”

If you are a new traveler to Kyoto (solo or not). This capsule hostel is for you. the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable in sightseeing spots, events and tours. they were able to teach me where I could go for autumn leave night illumination which is famous in Kyoto. facilities are clean but bed is dusty (not for people with sinus issues). It has a very traditional japan design thus it is a very interesting stay. It is abit far from the station with afew slopes. Beware if you are a solo traveler with heavy luggage it will be a struggle. I really enjoy my stay here and will definitely come back to Gion Ryokan Q-beh the next time I am in Kyoto.

Great fun for groups”

As a group booking a room for five, it was great fun being able to pull our futons next to each other and have a fun sleepover feel kind of night. There was also space available in the dining area or upstairs common room to play games. Heating was available in all the rooms which was great for the winter, plus spare blankets available. Gion Ryokan Q-Beh was also conveniently between the main street of shops and the older style small shops in the backstreets.

Very homey and clean. Front desk was amazingly helpful. A short walk to the attractions in Gion and soooo great for the price. We also stayed at a different ryokan nearby that was much more expensive, but the quality was not much different. Q-Beh is a superb option for traveling on a budget!

Classic ryokan in a very prime location, excellent English speaking staff”

This is a very quaint ryokan. Location is superb, minutes away from Gion and Yasaka Shrine. It comes with washing machine which was very thoughtful for long haul travellers. The showers however was the only disappointing thing about Q-Beh. It was freezing cold at 2-5 degrees, and the shower took forever (a good 3-5 minutes) to heat up. And it comes with the push tap, means after about 20 seconds the water turn off by itself, you gotta keep pushing and pushing while shampooing your hair and all. The washroom sink does not come with warm water too. We almost froze our hands & face off while brushing our teeth and washing our face. Room lighting is a little too dark as well. Aside from that, all is pleasant. Staff is amazingly friendly.

Great taste of Old Japan”

Place was really clean and relaxing, had fast internet, staff were good at English and were very helpful with info about the city. Common room was big enough with a complete kitchen. Rooms had their own heating aircons and they also let you use Japanese robes and indoor slippers so it was very relaxing! The neighborhood was so charming, and the place was 15mins easy pace walk to the nearest subway, 5mins easy pace walk to the nearest bus stop. Shared showers/toilets were very clean. Felt so calm and zen. Q-beh had the old world charm with all the comforts you’d still want these days, at an affordable price! Highly recommended 👍

Nice ryokan experience”

My family enjoyed staying at Q-beh. Basic accommodations in a traditional style. One needs to be comfortable with shared bathrooms and showers. Our private room was spacious and clean and the communal facilities were well-maintained. The location was fantastic - a close walk to many attractions in an interesting part of town. While Gion seemed crowded during the day, the street where Q-beh is located was quiet. The staff was a bit reserved/quiet, but helpful when prompted.

Everything was great! Short walk from Gion Shijo station, perhaps 10 mins walk, and it was really near to the tourist sites. Stayed in dormitory and the light (for the inner area of your own bed) was not bright enough. Beautiful ryokan, would love to stay there again if i come back to kyoto next time!

The location is very convenient since it is already in the historical streets of Gion. The place is very clean, the shower is small and you have to constantly press the button in order for the shower to operate. But it doesn't matter since everything works well and you have enough room space for changing your clothes. The toilets also have a separate room from the shower so it is hygienic. The bed matress is clean and comfortable. The staffs are friendly, helpful and kind. They can speak English so it's not a problem if you can't speak Nihongo. Just ask them which places they recommend to visit in Kyoto and you'll be amazed. The common room is a tatami-type and most travelers here are also friendly. Plates, chopsticks, cups, bowls, heater, and microwave can be used for free. You can also watch TV in the common area. I'll definitely stay here again when I go back to Kyoto. - Martin (Philippines)

It is in Gion area of Kyoto, a quite crowded area. It is convenient to find food, bars, shops nearby. It is also close to Kiyomizu Temple, just 15-20 mins walk to there. Rooms, toilets and shower rooms are all very clean. The living rooms are quite large. However, the staff are just okay. One night they cooked after 11pm. As the kitchen is in the living room and the ventilation is not good enough, the smell went to the dormitary. It's very strange.
