I stayed at Mume again after several years away. It is still as wonderful as I remember. The rooms are so beautifully decorated, with great facilities, and the location is perfect; about 5 minutes walk from Gion. But the thing that sets this hotel head and shoulders above other hotels is the level of service. I have been fortunate to stay in some top class hotels over the years but the service at Mume is second to none. The staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need including wonderful suggestions for dinner and drinks. I know there are travel restrictions at the moment to enter Japan but if you are lucky enough to be in Japan already take advantage of the quieter situation in Kyoto and spend some time at Mume. You’ll have a fantastic time. I know I’m going back again soon.

This is our second visit to Hotel Mume and it didn't disappoint. It was like seeing our long life friends or family. As soon as the taxi arrived we were greeted with such genuine warmth. We were given the Flower Room which was beautiful and had ample space. Breakfast each morning was outstanding and filling. We love the staff take care of our dinner reservations for us and even give us a detail map showing where each place is. The staff also very informative with places to see and do and will give you great detail of how to get there. We will come back to Kyoto and stay here as it is such a lovely place and the Gion area is beautiful.

We had a fantastic stay at Hotel Mume and would highly recommend to others. The hotel has beautiful rooms and bar, the breakfasts were delicious and the service from the hotel Mume team was fantastic. They went well out their way to ensure we had a fantastic stay in the city with recommendations and restaurant bookings and even helped us book a difficult to book restaurant in Tokyo for the next leg of our trip. We would definitely stay again if returning to Kyoto.

Ended our trip around Japan with 2 nights here. It was so lovely. We were offered a complimentary upgrade to the Flower room which was beautiful. We were so well looked after, nothing was too much trouble and everyone was incredible helpful and friendly. It made for such a relaxing and enjoyable end to our holiday.
