    A Sexy Hotel”

    I say sexy because of how aesthetically pleasing it is from the moment you walk in. Staff speaks English well which was super helpful to us Americans. The room was very comfortable with a huge bed, plenty of pillows and a wonderful bathroom. The hotel offers onsens…one for males and one for females. It is kept very clean and sanitized. The lobby has coffee and tea service 24 hours a day. Location is in the heart of the Gion district and ease to Kyoto Station. Many places to eat and shop in the vicinity. We absolutely loved this hotel and applaud the staff for providing a first class experience.

    Great location nice hotel”

    The hotel is in a great location and it was clean and as nice as any of the hotels we stayed at in Japan but definitely the most expensive aside from the ryokan we stayed at. The public bath great, and the beds comfortable for us. A little dusty but 5/5. If you’re booking more than one room, however, we witnessed in person as well as some of the reviews here of the challenges of booking rooms next to each other so just be aware.

    Excellent in location, service, room quality, style, and comfort!”

    The eco-friendly hotel looks like a traditional Japanese house on the outside but it's a stylish boutique hotel in the interior. On a quiet street a 3-min walk from the famous Kamo River and the central shopping area. Walk 5 mins in the opposite direction and you're in Gion where shops selling all kinds of traditional Japanese handicfafts and confectionery are located. Love the spacious tatami mat room. Usually one would need to pay 50% more for such good quality accommodation. Would recommend this hotel to everyone.

    Everything is great. The only thing I didn’t like is limited housekeeping but they compensate by sending you towels everyday. Location - Convenient. Near subway and bus station. Sites are walking distance. Also, I like that I can go to original Arabica coffee shop in just 10mins Facilities - Public bath is awesome! Free water and tea too in the common area. Didn’t get to try their buffet though but it looks good Cleanliness - Hotel and room is clean no doubt about it. My only concern is limited housekeeping Customer Service - Top notch! As expected to all japanese hotels. Staff are nice and friendly Price - A bit pricey compared to other hotels in Kyoto but I would say this is the best in Gion area Hotel room - Premiere King is perfect for a solo traveler with a huge luggage. There will definitely a problem if you share the room with someone
