Amazing Value”

Saka Hotel rivals the nicest hotels in Kyoto for a fraction of the price! I stayed at a different hotel for my last visit to Kyoto, which was exquisite but triple the price! From now on I’ll stay at Saka for every visit. I highly recommend the rooms with the private onsen. Arigatōgozaimashita Saka Hotel staff!

Breakfast, Kaiseki dinner and room with outdoor bath review”

We stayed one night at Saka Hotel Kyoto during our 13 day trip to Japan. It was by far our favorite place. Even our 6 year old son loved this place. The hotel is very close to Kiyomizu-dera so it was very nice to drop off our stuff before heading up to the temple before check in. The staff was awesome and very attentive to our needs as well as our children (6 and 2 years old). We used our outdoor bath several times during our short stay. This was perfect since it would have been difficult to go to the public one with kids. The meals were exquisite. When we return to Japan, I would love to book this place again.

Highly recommended small hotel with great rooms and professional courteous staff”

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Saka Hotel in every aspect of my stay. The staff was warm and friendly, the hotel atmosphere was quiet and serene, the room exceeded my expectation with thoughtful design and great comfort. The Japanese style bath with large wooded soaking was perfect for relaxing after a long days of sightseeing on foot. Most commendable were the meals at the hotel which allowed me to sample Japanese cuisine in a way in a way I would not have on my own. I would definitely return to this hotel on my next trip to Kyoto.

BEAUTIFUL”

A late review (my apologies) from my first Japan trip during sakura season. This hotel, staff, location was 10/10. My god, you need to treat yourself to a place like this at least once in your life. Service: I was greeted so warmly upon my arrival and they accommodated my early check in as well. The staff also graciously accommodated my allergies to seafood (yes, seafood and I'm in Japan, so sad!!!). I had the kaiseki dinner and breakfast and IT WAS SO DELICIOUS!!! I was treated like a QUEEN. Room: BEAUTIFUL. It was like a modern ryokan. I booked the room with private onsen and it was so relaxing and luxurious with great Japanese style. Pajamas and all the amenities you can think of were provided. Beds were comfortable and clean. I felt safe and at peace here with the warm and quiet atmosphere. Location: Walking distance (3-5 mins) from Kiyomizudera Temple and lots of cute shops! Would stay here again in a heartbeat!!! Thank you, Saka Hotel!!!

Amazing new Kyoto Property”

Staying at the Saka Hotel was a highlight of our vacation to Japan. The property was gorgeous, our room a joy to stay in and within walking distance of so many incredible places in Kyoto. After busy days of touring, coming home to our room was a delightful way to unwind in calm elegance. After a ton of research, so glad we found this lovely property. Highly recommended.

Best hotel in Kyoto”

I had a wonderful stay and memories in Kyoto and this hotel was a big part of it. Check in was smooth and the staff gave good recommendations on dining and where to go about. The room was wonderful and I love the wooden bath tub! It’s located a bit far out from the city but most of the shrines are within walking distance. I will definitely come back to this hotel when I visit Kyoto!

Seriously nice hotel”

This hotel was awesome. It was a luxurious hotel with ryokan vibes. It’s nestled into a quite neighborhood on a hill and within walking distance to a local bus stop for easy access to Kyoto station and other attractions. The room we were in had a large window and we enjoyed the view whenever we could. The staff was sweet and accommodating. We arrived in from the rain and were offered hot tea and a warm hand towel. The breakfast was part of our reservation as well. It was interesting for sure. I’d love to stay here again if I ever had the chance.

Hotel located on a quaint little street right 2 minutes walk from the major tourist streets of Gion. Location can't be beaten. Staff was very professional and courteous. The room was large and very clean, overall the whole hotel felt extremely fresh and new and the price was affordable. Only downside: Our room didn't have real windows with a view, but instead they put those paper panels to cover the windows made of shallow glass which had no view.

It is tucked in near kiyomizu-dera temple with only 5 minutes walk. Very close to bus (5 minutes walk down from hill) and underground station (10-15minutes walk). Great 8-10 course breakfast served everyday and changes daily. Staff were excellent. Very polite and attentive. They wanted to make sure we feel like home and we did.
