APA Hotel Kyoto Gion EXCELLENT

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Impeccable location, friendly staff although not very useful, small room, overpriced.

This a great location for exploring Gion (the historic geisha district) and is a 5 minute walk from the river and subway stops. Lots of restaurants and shops nearby too. The free wifi is fast and the staff are good and speak English well enough.

Easy to reach by bus from main train station and great location in the heart of Gion district. Lots to see and do in the area. Room quite a good size for a Japanese hotel.

Nice hotel with a great champagne bar. Centrally located and a very friendly staff.

Clean and comfortable hotel with a good breakfast included. A short walk from some of the most magical sites in Kyoto. Also easy to reach by local train; a $15 cab ride from main JR Shinkansen station.
