    A Fantastic Hotel”

    Had a 4 night stay here and it was perfect. Located blocks from the train station and across a small street from a huge Buddhist temple. Traditional Japanese rooms but a bit bigger. Amazingly helpful staff. They called and walked us out to taxis, and recommended great restaurants. Peaceful and serene. This was easily the best hotel we stayed in during our 3 weeks in Japan. Highly recommended.

    Pros: This hotel is simply beautiful. It’s modern yet very Japanese in style. The breakfasts are great. We have eaten lunch & dinner at Kanra Kitchen & dinner at the teppanyaki restaurant & the food is excellent. The service is exceptional. The gifts for sale in the lobby excellent for gifts & yourself. I am always buying items there. The hotel & service is all very well done. It is also a short 10 minute walk from Kyoto Station. Cons: no laundry machines

    Superb experience staying with Kanra”

    Me and my wife stayed here 3 nights for my birthday. Hotel Kanra has got very convenient location, only 2 mins walk from the Gojo subway station. Room interior has got a perfect balance of traditional and modern style, and it’s very spacious compare to the average size of Japanese hotel. The reception team is extremely friendly and helpful. Especially for Mr Fujiwara from the reception team who has been patiently assisting us on booking restaurant, booking Kimono rental and recommending good tourist attractions in Kyoto city. Also, Mr Fujiwara and Tsuka has secretly prepared a birthday gift(Kyoto chocolate) on my birthday, which was super thoughtful and sweet. Our experience with Kanra was way beyond amazing, would definitely come back again!

We asked for it but it never came.). Loved the big wooden bath. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much.

    You would never imagine to find such a special hideaway in a walking distance straight from Kyoto station. The room was almost like a good mixture of a hotel and ryokan, very modern with a touch of Japanese design. The staff was pleasantly hospitable and we literally enjoyed every single minute of our stay at Hotel Kanra Kyoto. (Try the stone baked pizza at one of their restanrants in B2F!)

    Superb service at Hotel Kanra!”

    My family and I traveled to Kyoto and stayed at Hotel Kanra for our first four nights. From the moment we entered the hotel, we were showered with attention from the front desk concierges and other staff. Check in was a breeze, and we were each given a glass of refreshing cold sencha as well as an azuki red bean pancake sweet treat - a really nice mid day boost before setting out to lunch. Although check in was officially at 3pm, we arrived in Kyoto at about noon and our rooms were already ready to our surprise. We were thoroughly wowed when we were shown our rooms, as we did not expect rooms of this size and decor. The rooms are expansive, and the tatami seating area was a nice touch that added a little Japanese traditionalism to the interior design. Beds were adequately comfortable and we made use of the hinoki bath tub in the bathroom every night. We were given rooms that faced the temple which was a quiet street and so we slept well each night. Every morning we set out to a different part of Kyoto - Kibune, Fushimi Inari, Uji, and even a day trip to Nara. The front desk was extremely helpful in getting us 5 person taxis and pointing out directions accurately. Each time we walked out and entered the hotel, the front desk greeted us warmly and asked how our day was going which was a very pleasant touch to their hospitality. Although the hotel is not located along the main streets of Kyoto, it is 1 minute away from Exit 8 of Gojo Station, which is 1 subway stop away from Shijio (where Daimaru, Takashimaya and other main boutiques are located). We used a mixture of taxis and the subway to get around depending on where the sights were. Overall, Hotel Kanra surpassed our expectations and we would not hesitate to return in the not too distant future!

    I couldn't emphasize on how amazing our stay in Kanra was, the staffs (ms Kashiwa in particular) were very helpful, she was very patient with our endless inquiries regarding things to do in Kyoto. We were greeted upon entering the hotel, it wasnt just during the check in but it was every time we leave and enter the hotel. The moment we enter the hotel and the room we found ourselves immersed in the fragrant cedar wood .later we found our the wood panels and wood bath tub that was located in our room were responsible for the scent. As a foodie myself, i find Kanra's breakfast superb, down to food presentation, service to taste. All in all i would reccomend Kanra to anyone, especially those who can appreaciate great hospitality and little details.

    Staff speak good English and are very keen to help. Hotel has free but limited numbers of bikes. So do book a bike in advance if you want one for a particular date. I do wish hotel had a free public open air bath even each guess room has a wooden bath tub. I will stay this hotel again when I am visiting Kyoto next time.
