Best of fall foliage in Kyoto”
This hotel is in a great location for seeing Kyoto and for getting to the temples and shrines around the city. The staff mapped out places that were not as crowded with tour buses so we saw the best fall foliage without dealing with the heaviest crowds in a holiday week. Our room was amazing with an outdoor rooftop soaking tub and the hotel restaurants had very nice food beautifully prepared. We planned for lots of walking and the hotel is close to busy shopping and dining, but not right in the middle of the busiest areas for both. 15- 30 min walk to everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any request we had, and language was not a problem at all - everyone on staff spoke English. Would recommend and would stay here again!

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!

Great hotel, fantastic service”
Wife and I were on our honeymoon. We wanted a great time in Kyoto. Chances upon this hotel online. Booked it. Turned out to be a great decision. Through email, we asked the hotel to help us make a reservation at Hyotei, a three-star Michelin kaiseki restaurant. The hotel replied within the day and confirmed our reservation. A couple of weeks before our trip, we found out my wife is pregnant. We emailed the hotel to inform the restaurant to ensure that there wasn’t anything raw in the menu for my wife and again, the hotel replied within a day to confirm that they had informed the restaurant. When we reached the Kyoto, it was pouring. Our luggages were wet. The staff greeted us with hot towels and green tea, and even helped to wipe our luggages dry. The staff spoke great English and provided useful information about Kyoto. They helped us bring our luggages to our room. The room was spacious and well laid out, making for a very comfortable stay, even through the typhoon that struck when we were there. We ordered a pizza for dinner through room service which came within 15 minutes. The pizza was great. WiFi was good and stable. They had really nice shampoo and shower foam. Overall, it was a great experience staying in Kanra.

Great choice for Kyoto”
The hotel is very close to the Gojo subway station, which makes it easy to reach from Tokyo via Shinkansen. Room is pretty nice, with a small private entrance area, tatami, and a cypress soaking tub. There is some amount of wear & tear on the stone sink, but it's nothing too serious. Very friendly staff, and the hotel breakfast is amazing (it's a very huge portion, so go hungry).

Best of Kyoto ”
Kyoto is a beautiful city in Japan, rich in culture and experience - Hotel Kanra captured both. Delivering exceptional service, beautifully designed rooms and of course, great food. I would recommend this to not just my friends, but on this occasion I also took my family and they adored it just as much. A special note to commend Naomi Kondo, the food and beverage manager at Teppan HANAROKU (the hotel restaurant) his service, knowledge of the courses and accompanying wines, sake and shochu was truely an experience all of us will not forget. Thank you & see you soon Hotel Kanra Kyoto.

Paradise in Kyoto”
The hotel is in Japanese style and you feel as to be living in Japan. The staff was wonderful and so helpful. The breakfast was outstanding from western or Japanese style choices. I chose Japanese every morning. I had a massage at the spa which was excellent. The location is near the train station, walking distance. The architecture and design of the hotel is outstanding.

Wonderful experience!”
The staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Their English was far better than either of the other two hotels we visited thus far in Japan. The Ryokan-style room was graceful but not over-bearing or restrictive. They worked hard at making sure that we could get to our next hotel seemlessly. I would stay at this one again in a heart-beat and I do not give rave reviews often.

The hotel design impresses you from the entrance. There is a zen and minimalist feeling in everything starting from the lobby up to the rooms. It is a good Japanese experience and is close to the station for shinkansen travellers. Would come back again.
