A Delight in Gion
Hotel Alza was located in Gion, steps away from UNESCO temples, traditional restaurants and shopping, and a more modern district featuring departments stores and more. Compared to other rooms I've stayed in Japan at this price point, the room was huge. The hotel was new, the room spotless, and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

A modern, very well designed hotel at a great Kyoto location. Close to trains, restaurants, shopping. Very helpful and pleasant staff that assisted with many requests. Good in room breakfast. We highly recommend Alza.

Exceptional 10.0
This is a pretty good hotel in Gion. One thing to note about it is that there is a pretty busy street between the hotel and the river. Subway also runs under this street so sometimes you can hear it very faintly. None of this is visible in photos or description, understandably. I found that my river facing room also had double doors and windows so there was no street noise in the room and I slept really well. Rooms are pretty big and are very well finished and very clean. Also, since you are in Gion, a lot of attractions and dining are right outside the door. Subway station is a very close. Overall this is an excellent hotel.
