      Wonderful Place to Stay in Kyoto”

      We have spent 8 wonderful nights at the Hotel Celestine Kyoto Gion. It is a very new hotel with beautiful rooms and ver attentive staff that will make every effort to make your stay a fantastic experience.

      Exceptional”

      It's a brand new 5 star hotel (opened in September 2017). The location is just perfect for us as we had gotten the hotel to make most of our restaurants reservations, mostly around the GION district area. Quite a number of sightseeing places (famous Shrines & Temples) are within walking distance. It is especially good for us as we can walk off the calories after our lunch and before heading back to hotel to freshen up and then for dinner. The room size is pretty good and everything is so new and clean.. even the hotel smells good too! Room rate is considered reasonable given the high rates in most hotels in Kyoto. Overall,we are happy and satisfied with the stay at Celestine Kyoto Gion. The only problem (not big though) is you have to be rather patience with the staff if communicating in English with them. Anyway, will definitely stay at this hotel again.

      Warm hospitality and heartfelt service makes it a memorable stay in Kyoto ”

      We were received by Miss Thorby (I hope I’ve remembered her name clearly) at the front reception and she has been extremely warm, friendly and empathetic towards our needs. She personally delivered extra pillows and bathroom slippers to our room. Thorby speaks very good English and never fails to impress us with her positivity and smile. She is like a ray of sunshine in the cold winter. The entire team of service staff and the shuttle bus driver have been impeccable in making our stay memorable. The boutique hotel definitely lives up to its reputation of delivering heartfelt service. There was once when we nearly missed the shuttle bus and the service staff discreetly informed the valet staff and personally escorted us to the bus bay We enjoyed the personalized tour of Gion and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave very interesting information about Gion. The Kyoto trip, being our first, was definitely made memorable by our stay in Celestine Gion. We will be back soon.

      The Celestine Kyoto Gion, is a superb place to stay. The whole establishment oozes style and comfort. Superior Double room, in which we stayed 5 nights, was large by Japanese standards. Very comfortable beds and Pillows!! the sitting area - a bonus and there is a generous bathroom. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, helping organise taxis or how to get where you want to go. The Onsen is very well done in relaxing grey tones and large. We ate the Restaurant Tempura Endo, what a treat. It's a perfect place to stay when in Kyoto.

      Beautiful oasis in Gion”

      Loved our stay at the Celestine Gion, which is a full-service hotel in Gion. It is a little ways from the most bustling parts of Gion, but only about a 10 minute walk. Rooms were spacious (for Japan) and beautiful, with a very large shower/bathtub area. Closet is small if you're staying multiple nights, but everything is well laid out and clean. Only critique is that it was difficult to get a cab at times, and there aren't many restaurants in the immediate area (other than the attached fine dining Tempura establishment). Overall a lovely and wonderful place to stay in Kyoto and would highly recommend!

      Wonderful location & amazing hotel”

      The Celestine Kyoto Gion was located off the main street in Higashiyama district so was very quiet but only a short walking distance to the key attractions of the area. Directly across the road from a park and temple. The rooms were very comfortable, the beds amazing and we loved the architectural design of the hotel. Staff were very polite and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

      Lovely hotel in center of Gion”

      The first thing you'll notice when you enter the Celestine Gion is the delightful aroma and green space outside the large windows which makes you feel like you're in a spa in the middle of a green forest. The staff was extremely polite and friendly. The room was efficient, making great use of the space given which was not very large, but did not feel cramped. We enjoyed our stay so much that we extended our stay for another night. The hotel is located just a 10 minute walk from the Gion subway station, but on a quiet street, and as previously mentioned, around a green garden/trees that give a sense of tranquility. I would recommend for travelers looking for a relaxing and calm environment to come back to after a busy day in Kyoto!

      One of my favorite hotels. The hotel is new, modern and clean. The mattress and bedding are very comfortable. They are also very considerate by providing 2 slippers-one for bedroom, the other for going to public spa, as well as 2 bathrobes. The location is excellent. 10 minutes walk to Kiyomizu-dera temple. 2 minutes walk to Hanamikoji Street. Very close to downtown and restaurants. The public spa is very clean and comfortable. They also have free shuttle runs between the hotel and Kyoto station every one hour. The staff was helpful and nice. I can't think of anything I didn't like. I will definitely stay at Celestine again the next time I visit Kyoto.

      Supreme Service, beautiful hotel at impeccable location!”

      Hotel Celestine was one of our highlights in Kyoto! It's location being right behind the old Geisha old town, nestled 2mins behind a beautiful temple park, quiet yet under 8mins walk into the heart of city, has a superb interior design of hotel, nice and comfy spa, and not to mention impeccable service. One of our friends left his raincoat at the hotel, the hotel concierge even took a taxi to our later Airbnb house to deliver the raincoat to us. Nightly rate is a little on the high side. But good to spend for a few nights in Kyoto if you would like a good pamper. Highly recommend this boutique hotel.

      If you intend to visit Kyoto and really get a flavour of Gion, the Celestine is a great place to stay. The rooms are simply lovely. Spacious enough, given it is Japan, after all, well designed, beautifully finished, and spotlessly clean. Breakfast is excellent, and the hot baths to finish the day are also lovely. This is a haven of tranquility and calm, perfectly in keeping with the way Kyoto makes you feel. I’d definitely recommend a stay here.

      Wonderful customer service! Can’t thank them enough. After checking out & arriving at our next hotel, my husband realized he left his Bose headphones in our room. I emailed the hotel asking if they could send them to our final hotel while traveling in Japan. They responded within a half hour & mailed them right away at no cost. The hotel is well maintained & clean. The onsan was great with lovely toiletries. The location is perfect for touring Kyoto. Not far from the bus & train station. Great area to walk around & check out temples, shrines & shopping area in Gion. My husband thought the room was a bit on the small side & wished it had drawers to put clothes in, but I thought the size was fine. My only complaint was that we found out breakfast was not included upon check in. Breakfast was quite expensive. We were traveling with 3 kids, so having breakfast at the hotel would’ve cost us about $150 per day. We opted to get breakfast out since we were there 5 nights. Would stay again!

      This hotel is within walking distance from a lot of places, but not near to Kyoto station. However, they do provide free shuttle service to/from the Kyoto station. The hotel is very clean and comfortable. Many places are within walking distance - Kiyomizu temple, Gion, and Nishiki Market. It's also easy to take the local bus to go around. It would be nice if the hotel can provide coin-laundry machine. It's summer and I wish I can just wash my sweat soaked attire properly instead of hand-washing them in the room.

      Outstanding hotel in a prime area”

      I have stayed in the Gion district before, but I found that this hotel set a new standard of excellence all around. The convenient shuttle from Kyoto JR makes it easy to get back and forth but the walk is lovely through the Mion area, especially in the evening (and definitely safe despite what might appear to be dark streets!!!) It is also a short walk through the temple grounds (also very safe at night) to Shinjokaramachi where many restaurants, shops, buses and the subway are located. The hotel itself was stunningly beautiful, and each door seemed to reveal yet another surprise, always elegant, quiet and superbly staffed and maintained. The rooms were beautiful, with comfortable beds and pillows, quiet, and well appointed with the usual conveniences. The hotel ofuro was well maintained, comfortable and relaxing. The staff was outstanding, helpful, discreet, and well trained. This is an outstanding hotel and I look forward to returning soon.
