10/10 Exceptional

Art Mon Zen is an exceptional boutique hotel located in the heart of Gion. Location is perfect to explore Kyoto, with some of the best attractions and restaurants in the city mere steps away. The Executive room we stayed in was very spacious, tastefully furnished and decorated, quiet at night and beautifully bright during the day thanks to the floor to ceiling windows. The bed was very large and extremely comfortable and the air conditioning whisper silent and effective. The bathroom included a supersized high pressure rain shower and a Jacuzzi. Not sure why this is classed as a 3 star hotel, when the comfort and beauty of the room and the exceptionally high level of service could easily grant it a 5 star rating. We couldn't have been happier with the choice of our Kyoto hotel!

Huge rooms/beds, quiet location steps from Gion
Hotel was great, rooms were giant and so was the bed! Very soft and comfy. Location if you’re looking to be a block from Gion without the foot traffic chaos is perfect. There is a Lawson’s (convenience store) next door which is great (and you can smoke there if you’re a smoker in search of a rare spot). I would suggest to the hotel to put copies of the restaurant menus in the rooms and do not disturb signs. But that’s just a small thing. Would definitely stay there again.

The hotel is beautiful - our room was massive by Japanese standards, and luxurious. Great location for Gion but very quiet. The staff were wonderful - warm and helpful. Amazing breakfasts in beautiful surroundings. We would definitely stay there again.
