Great location, friendly staff, an experience uniq
You may find a more modern hotel, but you will not find better people to stay with. As I was heading out one morning, they stopped me and gave me an umbrella since rain was in the forecast. Things like that make the difference when you have so many options.

Friendly spot. Amazing location.
Guion Sano was a great time. Exceptional location and very friendly staff. Also had a live Geisha show. One note -- this place has an elevator and is four stories. So perhaps not the small, throwback, intimate Ryokan some might imagine. But if that is not an issue, highly recommend the place!

Great hospitality and traditional experience
Really enjoyed the location and hospitality of this Ryokan in the heart of Gion. The hosts were lovely and very helpful. The highlight of the stay was the performance and interaction with young Maiko (trainee Geisha) who was absolutely beautiful. It was a wonderful bonus to the stay. ** Book early on Agoda to get the best rate.

Stayed 2 nights in August 2017
Great service and location; a touch uncomfortable
The place is fantastically located in Gion, within walking distance of Kiyomizu-dera and the commercial area (Nishiki market). I was treated exquisitely by the owners. I have to say that the Japanese style room (no couch, no chairs, no bed) was a bit uncomfortable for me (I am not used to sitting at ground level or sleeping on a matress directly on the floor). But overall I really enjoyed the experience and for a short trip I would repeat.

Excellent staying experience in Kyoto.
Gion Sano is about 5 to 10 minutes walk from Gion area, a quiet, clean and friendly place to stay in. Reached the place before my check-in time, and left the place for my exploration. Returned with surprise: the staff brought my heavy luggage to my room; there's some free snacks in the room; they served me fruits and warm tea when they brought me to the room, and there's free instant noodles for all the guests. I book my room without realising it has a full bathtub! It's like a bonus for me. For me, it's an excellent location for I want to explore Gion. It certainly worth any cents for my stay here.
