"Summer in Kyoto"
Our family of four (two kids aged 11 and 15) enjoyed a fantastic week at Gagakuan. Our host Saki was very responsive from the initial reservation until we departed. She even dropped off a delicious birthday cake for my daughter who celebrated her birthday the day before we arrived. This is not a traditional hotel room but a traditional Japanese house in a very nice neighbourhood. The house itself is very well equipped and a fantastic way to experience living in a traditional family home. Although more than 100 years old and very traditional, it has been equipped with a number of modern touches that enhance the stay. Our two kids were absolutely fascinated with the house and the entire environment. For our purposes, it was ideally situated between Kyoto station and central Kyoto. The Gojo subway stop and the bus stop are both less than a five minute walk from the house. This allows you to easily access the public transportation system to all of the wonderful temples. We also took side trips to Osaka, Nara and a day trip to Hiroshima using our Japan rail passes. Except for a few hot days (typical for Kyoto in the summer), we had a perfect time in Kyoto thanks to our great stay at Gagakaun and the kind generosity of Saki. We hope we get another chance to return to Kyoto and see the things we missed this visit and stay here again.

"Excellent location "
My first time in Kyoto I stayed at the Hotel Grand Bach because of the great reviews. I was not disappointed. The hotel is so cozy and clean. The staff are friendly and courteous. I had the deluxe double twin room and it was located on the corner of 9th floor . The view of the main shopping center and mountains were very nice. The location is near the fish market and lots of shops and restaurants. I ate lunch and dinner at the nearby restaurants but for breakfast I ate in the hotel. The hotel has options of Japanese or western style breakfast. I was there for 3 days so I tried both and surprisingly they were both good. After 4 pm each day they have complimentary drinks such as hot/cold tea, coffee ( cappuccino machine) , hot/cold water. After 9:30 pm they had a light snack which is rice and soup with pickles condiments. Very soothing for a late snack. Overall, I really like this hotel. I will definitely return to this hotel if I'm in Kyoto .

"In Kyoto's old district-Gion, this ryokan is great"
Quiet at night, close to many beautiful temples and local cuisine. Walking to and from the bus is only 3 minutes and about a 10 minute walk to the subway gives visitors easy access to the whole of Kyoto. Staff is very helpful and friendly but their English is not great; expect to use your favorite translation app. Clean, quiet and a perfect example of a traditional Japanese ryokan, you can't go wrong here!

"Great experience in a Japanese style Machiya"
We enjoyed to stay in a beautiful Japanese style house for 2 nights. It is located close to Higashiyama underground station and you will find there easily from the station. There are coffee and Japanese tea (3 kinds of Japanese tea!!) Only one big issue is the internet connection in the house. There is a pocket wi-if upstairs but it almost didn't work for searching for a restaurant or checking SNS or uploading photos. Overall, I highly recommend you :)

"Comfortable, Quiet Neighborhood Ryokan"
We stayed for 2 nights. We booked a ryokan b/c we wanted a more authentic Japanese experience (tatami floors, sleeping on futon) and that's what we got. Japanese style breakfast was served every morning in a private dining room-- it was very good. It should be noted that there is an 11:00PM curfew (as you have to leave your room key at the front desk when you head out for the day and get it from innkeeper when you return). We enjoyed our stay.
