Definately one of the best boutique hotel we've ever stayed . Brilliant location in the Gion area. Plenty to see within walking distance from lovely temples to traditional wooden houses and shopping . Should you need to take a bus, the bus stop is just a few minutes walk away. Not to mention plenty of restaurants for you to choose...

Hotel Mume is an absolutely wonderful place to stay in Kyoto. The service provided by the staff in this hotel is the best I have ever received. Nothing is too much trouble from suggesting restaurants to making a very welcome pot of tea after a day of tiring sightseeing. They even assisted with train times, printed off maps and on...

It was wihout a doubt, my best experience in a hotel. I am sure that I will never stay in a similar hotel in my whole life. We booked the Flower Suite, I cannot describe how amazing the room was. Absolutely perfect. I will live there for the rest of my life. The staff was incredibly nice. I have NEVER...

There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said about what a wonderful place Hotel Mume is. We stayed for 2 nights because that was all that was available (book early- like way earlier than you think you should) but would have loved to have stayed for our entire time in Kyoto. We stayed in the Moon room...

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a wonderful stay. The staff are the most friendliest and helpful that I have ever come across in all the hotels I have ever stayed. Breakfast was continental style and tea and coffee could be had at any time of the day or night without cost. Happy hour is from 17.00-19.00...

This is a small unique hotel with easy access to the Gion area. The hotel arranges taxis, and provides maps, routes, dining recommendations, etc. There is no street noise at night, adding to a peaceful stay. I only viewed the Flower Suite and Wind room, and enjoyed, preferred my nights in the Flower suite. The pluses of Hotel Mume include...

Hotel Mume was recommended by a friend. It was so good. The hotel is elegant and calming and the interest and hospitality of the staff is outstanding. From the time of booking, they did everyone they could to help. Their recommendations were spot on. They walked us to a restaurant which they considered hard to find. It was simply our...

Mume really take hospitality to a new level. So welcoming & so very pleasant. We have never experienced such a high level of attentive and friendly service. We have never returned to a hotel after checking out just to call in & say hello and thank you...but we have never been compelled to before. It's amazing that in these crazy,...

Hotel Mume was like a home away from home. Great location - Gion. Close transport options, lots to see and do and eat within walking distance. We stayed in the spacious wind room. Staff amazingly helpful from the time of booking to checkout. Very understanding when my travel companion had to leave early unexpectedly. Large and healthy breakfast provided, evening...

We stayed at Mume for two nights and wished it had been longer. The previous reviews say it all about a level of service that we have never experienced anywhere else in the World. The staff are simply delightful and will do anything to help. My only criticism relates to our own actions!! The happy hour for a free drink...

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
