decent modern hotel in good location

Hotel is located near the intersection of the two main subway lines in Kyoto. It is a convenient, standard hotel with smallish rooms and standard amenities.

no way a 4 star!

We were in Kyoto for only two nights. This hotel is in no way a 4 star hotel. The rooms are small but tidy. Bathrooms resembled lavatories on an airplane. The location was good. The price was high for this property. From the looks of the hotel, I would've considered this a 2 star property.

Hotel Gimmond

Hotel has a nice location, friendly staff, but the rooms are small. It's quite common for Japan though.

A Great Place to Stay in Kyoto

The hotel staff were very accommodating and the room was clean and comfortable. It was also very well located; the subway was only three blocks away, and some sites were within easy walking distance. I didn't have breakfast there, but was able to buy what I wanted at the convenience stores in the area. The hotel is also very close to Kyoto station, the main train station of the city.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

I visited the Nijo Castle and Nishiki Street/Teramachi shopping center, both within walking distance of the hotel. The city is laid out in a grid pattern and getting around is fairly easy. There are restaurants and convenience stores nearby, as well as an authentic French bakery.

Great Location

Hotel is very foreign guest friendly and handles lots of western tourists. Rooms are just large enough as not to be crowded and beds are firm but comfy. One block from subway, which now has signs in English, and a short taxi from JR rail station. Right behind hotel is a great walking area of shops and food in old tradition and great 7-11 right in front of hotel, which does not put anything in the firge bar. Very reasonable rates and breakfast charge.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

Kyoto has hundreds of attractions, temples, shrines, castles, but they are really spread out in the city of two million. The subway and foot are good ways to get around, as taxis would bankrupt Gates.

excellent staff and location

location is very convenient to the transportation and the market. Staff excels in being customer-oriented and attentive. Room is good based on prevalent standards in Japan, especially for the price. Will stay again.

Good stay

Comfortable stay; convenient location next to the Karsuma Oike subway station, and only a few blocks from major bus stops. Staff were very friendly and the room was clean. There are several restaurants and convenience stores in the vicinity. Note that there is no free breakfast.
