Lovely hotel, ace location, nice communal bath.”

walking distance to many of Kyoto's highlights, pleasant surroundings, communal bath.

I had a very good stay @ Mitsui Garden Kyoto Sanjo. The room was small but very well organized and clean. The bathroom, also quite small, looked nice and had a lot of space to use for your own stuff, and featured one of those typical Japanese short but very deep bathtubs, which I just happen to love. The bed was very comfortable, and although I first was a bit skeptical about the pillows, they turned out to be the most comfortable I have tried in a while. From Mitsui, which is just metres away from a subway station, one can easily walk to Kyoto's shopping/walking districts, Pontocho and Gion. It isn't far from Ni-Jo Castle, too. The reception area is very nice, and (as the name of the hotel suggests) boasts an impressive Japanese-style garden. Mitsui Sanjo also offers a nice, yet small, communal bath (sento), which is the ideal way to relax after a day of walking.

Enthusiastically recommend”

We loved staying at the Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Sanjo. It is centrally located and easy to get to by subway, but tucked away so that it feels private and not noisy. It is in a part of the city that is very walkable with lots of hidden gems in the side streets--one-of-a-kind shops, cafes, restaurants. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The room, although small, is well-designed. The breakfast was a great combination of Japanese and western and the restaurant looks out on a small garden. We would definitely stay there again.

Thank you very much for having stayed at Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Sanjo and taking the time to share your precious feedback. It is our great honour to hear that all of our facilities and service could live up with your expectations. As you mentioned, being located in the centre of the city is one of our selling points and it could offer you the most convenient transportation options. For example, Shijo Street, one of the main streets in Kyoto, is just 5 minute walk from us and you would be able to get access to most of the tourist attractions in town. With regard to our breakfast, we basically serve both Japanese and Western dishes in a buffet style. In addition, we are proud of offering a variety of traditional Kyoto style or homemade dishes that have been adored by local people for centuries. Once again, we thank you for your meaningful comments and look forward to welcoming you here in Kyoto in the near future. Front Office Manager.

This was our first time in Japan and we couldn't have picked a nicer hotel or location. 3 subway stops from Kyoto main station, beautiful area on Sanjo Dori.

It is our great pleasure to know that you were impressed with our staff service and location which is one of our selling points. With a regard to our location, there are several public transportations to which you could easily get access.

Furthermore, as you mentioned, there are many famous attractions such as Nijo castle, Nishiki Market and Rokkaku temple which would make you more interested in a Japanese culture.

Good location and clean”

Good location, it is only 10 minuets walking from the main shopping and food place, Kawaramachi, very convenient to hang around. Hotel, itself is cozy (small, but ok) and clean, crews are friendly. The public sauna is very small (way smaller than the pictures but clean, well equipped, no inconvenience to use), good to use it in winter time. The one I liked most was there is a humidifier/air cleaner in the room so I can adjust the humidity (very useful in winter time, definitely doesn’t need it in summer ;) ) There are a few other ones with same name in Kyoto. I got into Shijo one for checked in, but they kindly guided me to Sanjo one and even called to Sanjo and inform them, so get me through quick check in. Definitely will choose this hotel next time if I come to Kyoto. For one quick tip, there is a good izakaya (萬) just left of the hotel, sake and simple Japanese style of bar food are very good late at night. Very delight atmosphere with local Japanese people.

Pleasant staff. Great location. Take exit 6 from Oike & it’s a 10 minute trip from Kyoto station. ”

Fresh breakfast buffet. Clean & peaceful hotel. Great use of space in the room. Kyoto isn’t known for its skyline- so you can’t blame the hotel for lack of a view. Bathroom seemed outdated, but not enough to detract 5-star rating. Short walk to busy market across Karasuma. Money exchange machine in lobby with mediocre rates. Lack of lobby bar, but each floor has machines with beverages. Liquor Museum bar across from hotel has great prices if stronger night cap desired. STARBUCKS in between subway/hotel & convenient store across the street. Doutor coffee & 711 a couple blocks south. During cherry blossom season, the hotel lays out information in the lobby regarding which location has peak bloom. Unfortunately did not have time to visit the spa, but I heard great things.

We were very pleased to hear that you were satisfied with whole your stay at our hotel.

Great base for exploring Kyoto by foot....”

This was the third hotel we stayed in in Kyoto over a week during 'peak autumn leaf ' period, so was more expensive than usual which is to be expected. Rooms are compact (as is the norm in Japan) but service every need well if you manage your luggage size accordingly. The reception staff were warm and very obliging with any requests. Great location for exploring north/west Kyoto by foot as there are so many things to see in this precinct if you enjoy food and more unique shopping. Small local supermarket, wine shop and coffee salons all within 250m.

Superb staff”

Staff is very very good. They are very polite and keep smiling. One of the staff knew that I had small children. So they gave my son a baby kit as a gift. it includes baby's toothbrush , nap, and sandals (with a bear printed on it). When I asked for direction to major spot, the receptionist explain very well. They gave me a hotel map, and a direction by bus or taxi to every tourist spot (they already fotocopy and prepared for it). The receptionist escort us until in front of lift. The next day when we will leave hotel to travel, it was raining. And the staff lent us 2 umbrellas. Location near starbucks and supermarket. Since there were 4 of us, mostly we used taxi to travel. It cost around 1000 yen to kyoto station. Hotel near MRT, but we should change few train to reach famous destination. I suggest to take bus rather than train. At 11 pm I went for onsen, but too crowded. More than 10 people and the place was small. So I canceled onsen .

the place is very new, so one can feel that newness in the facilities. the staff are very helpful, going out of their way to be of assistance as necessary. the central location of the hotel is also great. it is in the middle of the shopping and entertainment in kyoto. the restaurant Chaplin offer good food, the bakery and patisserie also make great pastries and breads. I can never tire of having the tanba bread made from first class rice. it is something different, unique, and truly special. the hotel is quiet, one does not really hear noise from neighboring rooms nor from the busy activities outside the hotel. the beds are also very comfortable, and generous with the pillows. one can get a good night's sleep.

Service, location, room size

We are on our honeymoon and we booked the Mitsui Garden since we stayed at the Tokyo branch before. Due to high season, we got the twin room instead of double. But when me mentioned that we're on honeymoon they changed our booking! Room was decent size wise, compared with our hotel in Tokyo, with the same price we got one and a half room bigger. Location was great as well, near subway, shops and restaurants. A lot of convenience stores around. And if you walk couple blocks there's a boutique supermarket. The only down side which my wife really complaining about is the bathroom smells a bit damp. Im guessing it's because of the shower curtain. Also since we're not an early riser, breakfast finish quite early, 9.30.

Perfect reasonably priced hotel that provides everything you need. ”

The staff were friendly, it was clean, more than adequate amenities and the breakfast was delicious! We had a great stay here. It is very conveniently located. We were able to walk to downtown Kyoto and the Gion District. The only feedback I have is that if you are using a JR pass the closest JR station is approx. 30 minute walk away which means you will need to pay for the metro to and from this station each day you are there. The metro is cheap (210Y) so it’s not a massive deal but something that we didn’t look in to before booking.
