Boutique hotel in the heart of Gion

Posted Dec 26, 2014
Pros: Excellent location. Helpful and friendly staff.
Cons: New disposable slippers for guests would be a welcome addition.
Boutique hotel centrally located in the top tourist district of Gion in Kyoto. Gion is the old Geisha entertainment area and a charming historical area of Kyoto. There are many shops, stalls, restaurants, parks and temples a short walk away from the hotel. Other tourist attractions in Kyoto are easily accessible by bus. The staff at the hotel were friendly and very helpful with directions and any other matters. The rooms were a little small but still clean and comfortable.

A glimpse into the Ryokkan Style

Posted Dec 13, 2014
If you are looking to stay in s traditional japanese hotel but are nervous about doing so, Maifukan is the place for you. We stayed in a traditional room and found it to be a great experience but still with the comforts of a western hotel. The staff all speak excellent English, the rooms all have wifi and television and the breakfast is definitely something to recommend.

Excelente hotel

Posted Oct 29, 2014 on Hotels.com
Estive no hotel por 2 noites e escolhi a opção do quarto japonês foi uma experiência sensacional. O hotel é muito bem localizado perto de alguns templos e do centro de kyoto. Se você precisar ir a outros templos de ônibus, o hotel fica bem perto dos pontos onde passam as principais linhas de ônibus. O pessoal do hotel é muito atencioso e estão sempre dispostos a ajudar. Na região há vários restaurantes e lojas de docês tradicionais.

Perfect location!

Posted Oct 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great location close to Gion and the historical parts of Kyoto. Spacious rooms and friendly staff. Walking distance to all the Must See's in the city. Easy access from Kyoto Station by using e.g. the 206 bus that stops at Higashiyama Yasui (parallell street to where you are going) 2 min. walk from the Maifukan.

Great room. Perfect location

Posted Sep 20, 2014
Pros: Large room. Clean. Great staff. Location was perfect.
I've been to Japan many times and this was my favourite hotel. The hotel staff were excellent and the location was perfect - In the Gion district of South Higashiyama. It was surrounded by many of the main temples and attractions and not too far from the subway. I stayed in the Ryokan style room and it was great - very big room and very clean. I would definitely stay here again.

シンプル イズ ベスト

シンプル イズ ベストです! 座敷部屋の利用、 部屋のトイレ、バス、洗面所、とても清掃がいきとどいており、清潔感がありました。 スタッフの感じも良く、特にフロントの女性スタッフの方は親切丁寧に接してくれました。 宿はシンプルで清潔、 やはり、清潔で人が良い宿にまた宿泊したいものです。 京都に滞在する時は、常に利用したい宿ですね。 併設のレストランmavo素晴らしい!
