    Classic Hotel with Amazing Value”

    Hotel is conveniently located (4 mins walk from Subway, 2 mins from main Bus stop, 15 mins from Nisshiki Market). Its very clean and room is quiet too, with a very good price. Totally worth it! One thing to remind is that the room only has heater (no cooling aircon), since the weather is cold already.

    good”

    t's convenient to get out where you are, as it is in the center of Kyoto city. The staff is calm. Kind. The customer base is over medium class, not noisy. Two women from Russia stayed for 5 days. The Japanese restaurant in the basement was badly smoked with a cigarette smell. Breakfast is good, a swanky bakery in the neighborhood is good. Please ask the hotel staff. Japanese tap water can be drunk safely. However, if you can not drink tap water, please buy it at a convenience store in the immediate neighborhood. Well, I want small PET bottle service. Although it is an old hotel, the inside of the room is clean.

    Perfect”

    The hotel is located a five minute walk from Karasuma Oike metro station in Kyoto, which you can use to access the Karasuma and Tozai metro lines. It is a five minute walk from Nishiki market, one metro stop away from Nijo Castle, and two stops away from the JR line at Nijo. The hotel is currently undergoing renovation, but it didn't affect us. The Wi-Fi, hot water, bathroom, bed, were all excellent. The customer service was spectacular. They made our room every day and they also held our luggage for us for most of the day. The adjoining Italian restaurant does a breakfast buffet at just under 1,000 yen per person, which is excellent. Not a single negative thing to write. Just be aware that as of October last year Kyoto introduced a city tax that is payable when you check out.

    Great location, friendly staff ”

    This is the second time to stay here. The location is perfect and the staffs are kind. The only thing I didn’t appreciate is that it is under renovation. I didn’t get a notice in advance. (I was informed when I was check in.) My room has no window view because of temporary fences. Maybe the rooms on lower floors have the same situation.

    Under renovation and a bit pricey”

    Just had one night $350AUD for 3 and when we got to our room found we were shrouded in scaffolding and tarps, so the room was dark and no view from either window. I noticed later I was given a piece of paper on check in apologising for the renovations and that if this wasn't suitable we shouldn't check in, but had booked online from Australia, had travelled most of the day with 80 year old mother, so changing was not an option. I just thought the cost of the room, with this going on was probably too expensive, and should have had it mentioned somewhere that this was happening. On the positive side the staff are fantastic, polite and so very helpful. The hotel is a little dated, but very clean and in a great location.

    This is my second time staying at Gimmond and the main reason I chose the hotel was its proximity to the Karasuma Oike station, which is just 5 minutes away from the hotel. The hotel is a bit old though but location-wise, it is the best.

    It is value for money. The location is neither too far nor too near to tourist spot and subway station, however, all within the walking distance, I enjoyed the nights ape lighting while taking 5-10 minutes walking from subway or nishiki market at night back to hotel, coz the buildings and plants along the street were just too beautiful.

    The hotel is near Karasuma Oike subway station. The staff is very friendly and speaks good English. The room was quite spacy but the door and the bathroom needs to be renewed. We had fairly noisy neighbors opposite our room and because of the thin door we could hear everything. The bathroom was a little bit old, it was hard to get the faucet work.

    Strategically-located hotel”

    Hotel Gimmond might look and feel a bit outdated i.e. the room looks and feels like a early 90s hotel room but i didn't really mind. What i was really grateful about this hotel is that it is conveniently located near the train station. It is indeed 5-7 minute walk away from the Karasuma Oike station, which makes travelling around the city easy. There are plenty of convenient stores around the hotel and a shopping centre 10-minute walk away. Definitely worth the money.

    Great location!”

    Fantastic location, but beware, the room was incredibly tiny! Location is fantastic, we did a lot of walking around and even rented bikes to go around Kyoto. We did not need to use any public transportation in the town (But we were also not on any time of time crunch or anything) and we were able to walk to a lot of places. Would stay again based on location alone!

    This hotel is in a prime location in terms of transportation and sites. It has a beautiful lobby and the rooms are tidy and comfortable. Although they are small, as most Japanese hotel rooms are. The restaurants are slightly overpriced, but there are many other options in the area. The wifi is good and each room has its own, so it's quite fast.

    Good location and Near Key Attractions, Has Everything you Need and Affordable

    The hotel is located near Karasuma-Oike Subway Station but not too far from Kyoto Karasuma Station on the Hankyu Line which is great for people coming from Osaka Itami Airport. Located in the Nakagyoku district, places like the Sanjo-dori, Nishiki Market, Gion, Pontocho and Heian Jingu are of walking distance and definitely within cycling distance. There are plenty of food options nearby if you are hungry for food from izakayas, cafes, bistros, restaurants, tradtional ryotei etc. The hotel room itself i of a decent size for Japanese standards, it is tight but has everything you need from a stable wifi, a ensuite bathroom, cabinet for clothes etc. they also provides breakfast within 550-1500 JPY (Western or Japanese) but there are also many options nearby. The staff were friendly and nice in general. Generally, a reliable hotel and a nice choice to consider if budget and location are your main considerations especially if you are no planning to use the JR lines.

    I enjoyed my stay there, they have s nice lobby and you can tell it is newly renovated but the room facility is a bit outdated, such as the hair dryer and water boiler. The room itself is spacious ( in Japanese standard) and well cleaned. it is good price for money and I am happy to stay there again.
