Exceptional 9.6 From 101 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
This hotel is in a great location in Kyoto. It was within walking distance of city center but tucked away on a quiet romantic street near the canal near restaurants and bars. The hotel is very Japanese - travelers will need to remove their shoes in the room. The bathroom shower was a little bit moldy, however. It was clean, but the wooden tub had some dark spots that really defy scrubbing. Otherwise, the room was spotlessly clean and perfect for a family. The washer dryer was great and easy to use and we liked have a refrigerator in the room.

5 stars close to Gion!
The room was perfect and has a nice view of the river. I loved the large, clean bathroom and the fact that I could do laundry there before we left for hakone. The service is impeccable and the hotel even provides a phone for you to use during your stay. They also helped us adjust the breakfast to accommodate my mom’s allergies.

Be aware Crazy building owner
CRAZY building owner. If you are assigned to any room in the building next to the receiption. Please be aware of a crazy Japanese guy. We arrived at Aoi Kyoto at around 11am in the morning, it's was pouring rain, we settled everything and ready to explore the city around noon. we stood in front of the hotel building stone walkway to check the map 1more time. 5seconds later, I felt someone pushed me on the right, my natural instinct was moved to the left couple steps and said "Sorry". Then I turned right and saw a 40+ yr old grumpy Japanese male came out from the restaurant on the 1st floor of the building waving his arm to gesture me to move, then he followed with his broken English "MOVE! GO! Don't stand here" I replied "sorry, I am guest of the hotel" He turned his way to the hotel building, and said "Are you the owner of this building? I am the owner of the building!" I was so puzzled, I wanted to walk back inside to read the map since the rain is getting heavier. After couple steps, the Japanese guy turned to me again, and shout “I am the building owner, when I walk, you don't walk! Go!" I was like "Is this real?" He shouted again the same thing and I got so angry so I ran to the receiption next building. I told the lady at the front desk what happended, she just said "We did received some complains, maybe he is a weird guy”. Very unpleasant. He lives on the 2nd floor of the hotel and he is a chef from restaurant on the 1st floor, he ruined reputation of Japanese really.

Super stylish boutique hotel in quaint street
Gorgeous little hotel in an amazing location. In a quiet and quaint street only a few minutes walk from Gion and from 3 different train stations, very pretty and lots of little restaurants nearby. The hotel is very sophisticated, both in design and the technology in the rooms. The room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and super stylist to boot. I have a bad back and emailed the hotel before asking for a Western bed. They wrote back immediately ensuring me that this would be the case and that they would add 2 soft toppers to the mattress and told me not to worry, everything would be taken care of, and it was.

Good stay
The hotel room is more like a little apartment -- it is extremely comfortable and spacious. It has everything you need. Very well thought out. Great location on a beautiful quiet street. Easy walk to Gion district, Nishiki market and Pontocho. Lots of food places with 5 minute walk.

Amazing Boutique Hotel in a Great Location
We rented a large suite on the first floor with Balcony for 4 people. It was a great stay. Very special place, carefully appointed, minute attention to detail, high quality everything, unique design and setup (wooden bathtub!), great service, great location just steps away from Gion and many good restaurants, fantastic view on the river. Felt like living (it large) in Kyoto.
