          Individual guest reviews

          • Single
            8.8

            The staff is extremely helpful, the room is well furnished and full of useful stuff (tea pot, slippers, wired internet, ...). Its central location makes it very easy to travel from it.

            The room can be relatively noisy, depending where they are located in the hotel.

          • Single
            9.4

            Easy access to both of Kyoto's two main subway lines

            Could have had in-room internet connection or wi-fi (even for extra fee)

          • Family with children
            8.8

            The hotel was well located close to good shopping. Access to the Metro was very close and because the metro station is at the junction of two lines we were able to visit the sights of Kyoto very easily. The hotel is easy to find and the canopy over the door makes it easy to recognize. Good and affordable restaurants were within easy walking distance. The rooms at Hotel Gimmond are a good size for a Japanese hotel and the beds, although a little hard as in most Asian hotels were quite comfortable.The hotel has a pleasant, spacious and comfortable lobby area perfect for meeting friends or waiting for other guests. The rooms appear a bit dated but are very well maintained and do not distract from the comfort of the hotel.

            The bedspreads were heavy and too warm for the hot summer weather we experienced while in Kyoto. However this is a minor problem and would certainly not deter me from staying here again.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            The staff was excellent. And there was always someone on hand who spoke English, which is great for some international travelers. They made reservations for us, provided maps and directions, called taxis for us to make sure we got to the right locations. They were wonderful! The room was super clean and the quite roomy. Most Japanese hotel rooms are super small, but this one was typical of an American hotel room size. I would certainly recommend Hotel Gimmond to other travelers.

            The only thing I could complain about is the location of the hotel. For someone who isn't familiar with Kyoto, it might be best to stay at a hotel closer to Kyoto Train Station, as access to places is easier -- and cheaper. But it the hotel was just a quick subway ride from Kyoto Train Station, so it wasn't really a major inconvenience.

          • Group of friends
            10.0

            Excellent hotel in the heart of Kyoto close to a metro station and in an interesting part of town. I liked my room in the front of the hotel faced a major road was not noisy. There was plenty of space in my twin room which also included a settee and table and desk and chair. Friends staying in a room facing the back of the building had a smaller twin room. Both rooms were immaculately clean and well appointed. The hotel staff were very welcoming and helpful and solicitous for ways to be helpful. When I return to Kyoto I will definitely have the "Gommondo" as a taxi driver called as my preferred hotel and recommend it to other travellers.

            Kyoto is a large city and this hotel is not immediately adjacent to any of the tourist sites. Nevertheless, a metro station is nearby and the city has a good bus service network which means you can get around easily. There were four of us in my party so we often resorted to taking a taxi as it was more economical that four fares.

            7.8

            Well located, clean and comfortable. The rooms don't exude much in the way of personality, but are larger than average for Japanese hotels, and have every amenity you could reasonably expect at this price. The staff in particular are very friendly and helpful.

            Conveniently situated near the subway and shopping district.Staff were friendly and helpful.

            9.6

            Great location, easy access for buses and subway. Friendly, polite and helpful staff. Breakfast was good and dinner in the Italian Restaurant was a very pleasant experience. An excellent hotel, located in a central and interesting area of Kyoto. We booked a twin room, and found it quite spacious for a week long stay.

            No English speaking TV stations.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            This hotel is in a great location in the city of Kyoto. It's in an area right next to the Karasuma-Oike subway station, and from there you can navigate to anywhere in the city. The surrounding area also has lots of stores and restaurants, and there's a museum close by. The hotel is also about a minute's walk from two convenience stores with ATMs, where you can buy snacks and booze any time day or night. The restaurants inside the hotel are also pretty great: an Italian one and a Japanese style one. The service is excellent, the rooms are clean, and if you can't speak Japanese, most of the staff speak English and are very polite. I recommend this hotel.

            Great hotel for the price paid! Clean, cheerful and comfortable with a good location walkable to the rest of downtown Kyoto.

            A very nice hotel, pleasant room with all the usual facilities. The staff were very helpful and spoke good English. The Japanese restaurant is very good.

            Very convenient location and helpful staff.

            My room was a little small, but it is Japan after all. The other room my nephew and wife had was bigger than they expected.

          • Family with children
            7.0

            cleanliness, position of the hotel fot shopping. Need to take bus to any local sightseeing shrines.

            There was only small seating area in reception which had a huge ashtray at it and allowed people to smoke, which meant that 80% of the time I could not use the reception area OR use the paying internet VDU as people would light up and yoiu could not breathe. They should make this hotel NON Smoking totally as well as in the rooms. Breakfast was not included in the rate. Rooms very VERY VERY small considering the amount of money we paid I would NOT stay there again.

          • Single
            9.2

            Good and affordable hotel in the heart of Kyoto. Very convenient location next to the subway, Karasumaoike stop. Make sure to exit to the north, exit 3-1. Then just walk straight for 200m, look for a green sign.
