M’s Hotel Sanjo Wakoku
Gion,Gion - View on map
"Good location, walking distance to subway station and city centre. Located in quiet residential areas. Smooth check in and out through automated tablet. Facilities are basic, with missing amenities and manned counter only in the morning, making it inconvenient to request things. "

APA Hotel Kyoto-Gion Excellent
Gion,Gion - View on map
"My wife and I traveled to Kyoto from Osaka. We took the Hankyu Line over JR because the terminal stop at Kawaramachi was just a 10-minute walk to the hotel in Gion, near the Yasaka Shrine. This was the perfect location for us as we explored the eastern side of Kyoto from the Ginkakuji to Kiyomizu and further south to Byodo-in and Fushimi Inari. The hotel room was small but comfortable and well designed. If you're traveling with large suitcases, it might be too tight. Check-in/out was quick and easy, having pre-paid thru Agoda. The front desk is on the second floor, and we bypassed it most of the time during our four-night stay. So we didn't interact much with staff, but had no needs or complaints. Many top sites are within walking distance, and several nearby buses take you everywhere else. This is a colorful part of Kyoto, where dozens of visitors rent yukata (summer kimono) to stroll the streets, and you can still catch a rare Geisha or Maiko going to or fro."

Hotel Grand Fine Kyoto Okazaki Free Parking - Adult Only
Gion,Gion - View on map
"I spent 3 nights here. The hotel is about a 15 min walk to train station and 20 mins to Gion. Really comfortable big room. I did miss the fact that this hotel was for 18 yrs and over but it didn't really impact me, it seemed to be some kind of love hotel! The room also had a few extras like a gaming machine, jacuzzi, massage machine. All in all though, I enjoyed this hotel."

Kyoto Granbell Hotel
Gion,Gion - View on map
"Hotel is in the perfect location on a quiet side street in Gion. Hotel is modern, efficient and incredibly spotless. The Onsen - separate for men and women - is a nice touch, especially when traveling in colder weather months. Seamless check-in and check-out, friendly staff, warm interiors. Some room types are small and very compact, yet efficiently designed. Stayed four nights and did not mind the small size. It worked well for the two of us. "

Hotel Ethnography Gion Shinmonzen
Gion,Gion - View on map
"The garden room view is spacious and stunning. The staff speak fluent English. The location is perfect - very quiet, very peaceful and just a short walk from Gion, the bus, railway and subway stations. Lots of restaurants and convenience stores nearby. You will love walking around the hotel. I would definitely come back here again. They only have vegetables available during breakfast (it’s delicious but I’m a carnivore) and having guests dine together on the same table may not be everyone’s thing. We only signed up for it on our first day. "

More about Gion

Gion is Kyoto’s treasured traditional district, and it has more to offer tourists than any other part of Kyoto. The district’s streets were first laid out in the Middle Ages, and the area has been carefully maintained to preserve its historic character. A recent restoration project has strengthened the district’s old-world charm.

Many hotels in Gion are housed in restored buildings on the southern end of Hamai-koji Street. Guests in this area can stroll through historic neighborhoods dating to the 1700s, when Gion was the premier pleasure district in Kyoto. This area has as humble, traditional look by day, but it lights up after hours.

Authentic geishas still operate in Gion, though not nearly to the extent that they did even a hundred years ago. These 'women of the arts' are practiced in traditional forms of music and art, and they entertain in the teahouses of Gion. Many of these establishments are ultra-exclusive and only open to the well-connected; however, visitors will certainly see authentic geisha out and about in southern Gion.

To the north are Furumonzen-dori and Shinmonzeh-dori, a pair of streets that are lined with curios and boutiques selling souvenirs, traditional handicrafts and antiques. Art galleries and a few teahouses are also found here, making this an ideal place to go for a walk for anyone staying with accommodation in Gion.
