Great location and comfortable stay”

I just finished staying four nights at Laon Inn Gion Nawate in early February 2019. My stay was perfect! First off, the location is fantastic, just a couple minutes down the road from Gion-Shijo Station on the Keihan Line. You're also in easy walking distance to Kawaramachi Station on the Hankyu Railway and all the shopping and nightlife nearby. As the hotel is in Gion, you're obviously in close distance to all the temples, shrines, and culture found in Southern Higashiyama, as well as being close to the Kama River, Pontocho, etc. I really can't say enough good things about the location. As far as my stay was concerned, the room was large and comfortable, and I liked the convenience of having washing machines and dryers on the first floor (though the dryers could use a cleaning). What I liked most was the staff was helpful yet hands-off. They only clean your room or empty your trash when you request it. Frankly, I liked the privacy and comfort that allowed.

Exactly as pictured!”

We loved our stay at the Laon Inn Gion Nawate. Location was close to the metro station and also very close to the Gion district, walkable to Kiyomizudera temple etc. The room was clean and we had enough supply of clean towels for the number of nights we stayed. The coin laundry facility is also very handy. Staff was polite and followed through with our specific requests. Would definitely come back and stay here again when we visit Kyoto next time!

Great location and wonderful staff”

We had a great stay at the Laon Inn Gion. Clean and functional, plus a great location withing walking distance of Kyoto's best spots and restaurants. The staff at the reception is great. We had a very quiet room (facing the back of the building) and the HVAC system is reliable and quiet, which meant a good, restful sleep for us. The only downside is that there is no room cleaning for those staying for more than one night - this is clearly explained during the reservation, but I have somehow missed it. However, there are plenty of clean towels provided and trash disposal is easy (with bins clearly marked on every floor). All in all, a good place to stay in Kyoto.

Room : triple room is small for three people; need to re-arrange the table to partially open a large and a medium suitcase. Bathroom is also small. Room is clean but will not be cleaned daily unless you request for it a day before. Location : very accessible; 1-2mins to keihan gion shijo station; 1-2mins to gion keihan bus station; 3-5 mins to gion bus station. near family mart. near gion corner. 5mins to yasaka shrine. laundry area and vendo machine in the same room as the smoking area (enclosed) so you'll smell cigarette smoke when you enter the room

Very clean room and super friendly staff.”

This hotel is located about 100m from the commuter/subway station. Which makes it easier for those who use public transport. Many eateries around the hotel. It's location in the Gion area only steps away from Gion corner, Shirakawago river, philosophy walk and a few beautiful temples. We booked 2 rooms at the ground floor. Rooms are sparkling clean. Toilets and bathroom are separated. Very convenient. They have left luggage service for free. I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Great little find. ”

My son and I enjoyed our stay here. It is a small place situated in Gion, within easy walking distance of a number of attractions. The rooms are a decent size, spotless and have airconditioning that is easily workable without knowing Japanese (that mind sound odd but believe me you will appreciate it!) The beds are very comfortable. Close to many food options. Only advice I would give booking this place is to consider getting a taxi from Kyoto station if arriving by train, It was about 1400 yen. The accomodation is on a narrow side street and think it would be tricky to find would put a point of reference. Once you know where you are it is easy to navigate.

Clean new hotel in a excellent location”

The hotel is very clean and feels new. Room is small as with usual hotels in the same budget range in Osaka but has enough space for a couple sharing one big luggage and a few smaller bags. The location is very near areas of interest in Gion, walking distance to many parks and shrines and just about 5 mins or less walk to the nearest train station. 1 station away if you are travelling via Airport Limo Bus from Kansai Airport, you can even just walk to it from the drop off if you're not carrying much. Very convenient. Staff was also kind enough to receive our sumo tickets a few days in advance before our arrival. Only issue we had is that we somehow can't figure out how to turn the heater on.

We got this room for super cheap so it's definitely really good for your money. The location is right near the Gion-Shijo train station and some bus stops so it's very convenient. It's also within walking distance of Nishiki Market and all the shopping. Rooms are clean and simple and the staff is super friendly. They do eco-servicing so if you want room service, you need to tell them the day before. For 4 nights, we just got the room fully cleaned once. If you need new towels, just ask at the front desk.

The location was great, in a side alley, but 3 minutes walk to train station and bus stop. Near the old Geisha district of Kyoto. Room was an okay size, but carpets were new and clean, general cleanliness was wonderful for a budget stay. Had 2 wash areas inside a single room..one with the WC, other with bathtub. Front desk staff Asyman was extremely helpful, English speaking, guided us perfectly on how to get to various tourist spots in Kyoto. 24 hour shops nearby. Had a vending machine and coin operated laundry/dryer machine area in the hotel which was great. 5 stars to this facility!!

Great location - exceeded expectations!”

I was worried about booking a room here because of the few reviews, but I'm glad I did. The room was simple and clean. It felt slightly larger than other Japanese hotel rooms, but I could be wrong since I stayed at a very tiny place the day before so in comparison I felt like I had more space. All rooms are nonsmoking, but since I was located near the smoking room, the hallway smelled. However, I did appreciate the 24 hour coin laundry machines. Most importantly, it is walking distance to Yasaka Shrine, Kiyomizudera Temple, Todaiji Temple (you get to line up to ring the bell on NYE) Gijon-Shijo station, Nishiki Market, etc. Lots of food/souvenir shops. I would stay here again next time I am in Kyoto!
