Fabulous”

The customer service at the hotel was outstanding. The room was beautiful and we loved the traditional Japanese touches, such as the in-room soaking tub. Our beds were so comfortable and inviting. We traveled with our children ages 9 and 7 and the staff made up extra beds for them while we were getting dinner. The hotel was very quiet, yet a convenient walk from Kyoto Station and also walking distance from many of the Kyoto sights. We only had one night in Kyoto but wished we had planned to stay longer. I very rarely say this, but if I return to Kyoto I would absolutely stay at Hotel Kanra Kyoto again.

Best Hotel In Kyoto”

My wife and I came here on the second part of our honeymoon (from Tokyo) and was immediately blown away by the kindness of the staff and the beauty of the hotel. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and the room was amazing. Money well spent! Many of the destinations in Kyoto are very spread out so I wouldn’t worry too much about going back and forth to Kyoto station as we relied on the local buss for the majority of our time in Kyoto, which like the subway, is great. If we come back to Kyoto I will definitely be staying here again. Thank you Kanra Kyoto for the wedding gift as well!

We booked a room in the annex which was spacious , with Japanese and modern touches and very nicely furnished. The bed was large (two queens put together) and an additional queen sized futon for our daughter, with room left for the sitting areas. Wooden Japanese bath was nice and we enjoyed daily breakfast at the Kanra Kitchen, which coincidentally has great pizzas and pastas. We loved the four cheese with honey. A must try!

Unique a fabulous blend of traditional and modern”

The main reason to stay here is to get a room in the annex building and one of the designer, luxury or executive suites. The design was absolutely stunning with paper window shades to defuse natural light , fusion traditional sitting area for two people, and a very comfortable bed. Staff was very gracious and the bathroom and rub are also Impressively designed. About 20 to 30 minute walk from downtown Kyoto, was very close to the train station. If being in the middle of the action is for you you should stay somewhere else. But if you want unique high-end, one of a kind luxury accommodations definitely book one of the luxury, or deluxe rooms in the annex building. We didn't want to leave
