Great location for exploring Gion!
The staff was very attentive and helpful upon arrival. We were quite early but they stored our luggage and offered us some free bottled water. We enjoyed our stay here and unfortunately didn't get to use the outside terrace as we were back to late each night to take advantage of it. The only downside is having to walk to the other side of the river if you want to do things later at night but there are definitely closer restaurants if you're just looking to eat.

Great location in Gion and very nice staff
This is a traditional japanese Ryokan where your room is made up of a little living room during the day (chairs with backs on them but no legs) and then made up as a bedroom for the evening (sleep on soft pads with down comforters). We stayed here for two reasons - ryokan experience and the Gion neighborhood. It is a great location - unique lovely quaint walking area. We walked to Kiyomazu-dera and Yasaka shrine and Maruyama park. It is very close to the area where they have rickshaw tours. It is most easily accessed by a bus from Kyoto Station and a little longer walk from the subway/river front area. The staff at this hotel was so nice and helpful. They opened the door for us every time we came in; gave us restaurant ideas, etc. My husband was on crutches at the time and could still get around this neighborhood area.

Experience the atmosphere of Old Japan
We stayed in Maifukan at the middle of September. It is a small hotel, well located in the ancient district of Gion close to Yakusa Shrine, restaurants, bus stops and a laundromat. The staff were extremely courteous and helpful. We stayed in a Japanese Tatami room for 5 nights - perhaps a little too long for the amount of storage. The room was a good size with a big low table and floor chairs. The beds were made up each evening upon request. The coffee in the room was good and there was a generous amount of quantity toiletries. We would love to stay there again.
