Lovely stay in Gion
We loved staying at the Granbell hotel in Kyoto. It’s located in Gion which was perfect and a lovely neighbourhood. Super walkable to the other parts of Kyoto we enjoyed (pontocho, the river, Higashiyama, Nishiki market, etc) we even spotted a couple of Geishas. The hotel is brand new and very comfortable, it has that boutique hotel feel. Great service, we had a booking issue with another hotel in Japan and they let us use their phone and helped us resolve the issue. This hotel only offers breakfast but that’s wasn’t a problem for us as there are lots of great restaurants to choose from nearby. The yakitori Restaurant next door was awesome!

An oasis amid the bustle
Beautiful entrance on a quiet side street just off of a grand shopping street. Friendly and helpful staff, relaxing lobby; the rooms are thoughtfully designed, clean and efficient. Breakfast buffet includes Japanese, western, and some surprise options. There’s also an onsen in the basement. So much to see in the neighborhood, and check out the stationery shop next store for some Kyoto-made souvenirs and post cards.

Great Gion Hotel
We loved our stay at Kyoto Granbell Hotel. The location in Gion is excellent, easily within walking distance of several major sites and also close to the local train stations. It is walkable from Kyoto station, but it's at least a 30 minute walk so we took a cab with our luggage. The hotel itself is nice and clean. We stayed in a king room, and the bed was fantastic, so comfortable! The room itself is small, but typical for Japan and therefore expected. Highly recommend this place!
