Great location for sightseeing & clean modern inn
Maifukan is our favorite hotel in Kyoto and we are repeated guests. This year we took/stayed in 2 rooms as we invited my aunt and cousin. As we enjoy staying in the heart of Kyoto and neighborhood which is typical and quiet, this hotel is ideal, specially, for walking to various sightseeing points of interests and various choices of restaurants. The hotel is a small and clean and staff are friendly and courteous. If you want elegant and gorgeous hotels, I don't recommend/

Lovely hotel
Loved this hotel. The staff were so friendly and could not do enough for you. The hotel has a great location, just at the edge of the old town and the beginning if the temple trail but not far from the metro. Would definitely stay again. Particularly enjoyed the Japanese pyjamas which were left for you which made a great photo opportunity.

Great location for exploring Gion!
The staff was very attentive and helpful upon arrival. We were quite early but they stored our luggage and offered us some free bottled water. We enjoyed our stay here and unfortunately didn't get to use the outside terrace as we were back to late each night to take advantage of it. The only downside is having to walk to the other side of the river if you want to do things later at night but there are definitely closer restaurants if you're just looking to eat.
