Hotel Kanra Kyoto, Kyoto
Excellent luxurious tranquil stay in Kyoto
I don’t know what would make Kanra 5 instead of 4 stars, because it was truly wonderful! The room was huge and quiet and beautifully designed- the enormous bathtub was especially wonderful. The location isn’t RIGHT in the center of things, but honestly you wouldn’t want to be— it’s very close to the train station though and within walking distance of the market and downtown. I highly recommend this hotel!

Kanra. Beautiful deign. Attentive staff.
Beautifullly designed and impeccably maintained, Kanra is lovely and welcoming. From the elegant and spare lobby to the restaurant to the guest rooms, the spaces all have a quiet and spare Japanese aesthetic. The guest room is semi-western with a very low comfortable bed and low chairs and table. Because of the size of the bed- enormous- there was very little room on either side to get in or out with any grace or great difficulty. Breakfasts were delicious. A choice of western or Japanese food offered daily. And for a change of cuisines- wonderful pizza and salad for lunch. Staff couldn’t have been more helpful, finding even a guide for the day at the last minute.

Senior Challenge
We found the low chairs and bed difficult to get in and out of for seniors. We expected to have some more western options. Enjoyed the area and excellent service.
