PERFECT HOTEL
We loved loved this hotel! Everything about this hotel was perfect! The room was super clean. They offered seperate shoes to wear in the room so no one brings in their dirty shoes. The amenities were beyond amazing. The zen spa....so amazing! They also have a happy hour area for tea and refreshments which turns into a bar at night. The ambience of this hotel is just amazing! The location is walking distance to all things great in Kyoto! This hotel made our experience in Kyoto unforgettable! Also great wifi! Breakfast was good too!

Do yourself a favor , don't look anywhere else....
I had good expectations for this hotel , we arrived earlier than check in , so they promptly received our luggage to store , and confirmed our reservation... we left for a walk,... Several hours later came back to check in , we were escorted to the lobby downstairs, and we were seated and handed hot towels... amazing... we were rapidly checked in and sent to our room , our bags were already there , thats one big plus right there , entering the room , i was shocked....i mean , we were given ground level so we had like a small garden view, beautiful, but the room itself , i was amazed , so perfectly detailed and designed.... all the small and simple details , added together made this for the best experience we have had till then in Japan... The hotel design is just extraordinary and so calm and peaceful everywhere...the staff are all amazing , every single one of them , so polite , and willing to help in any way possible , i mean , i am lost for words, really , and too sad it only lasted a couple of nights , but the great thing is that i now know we have to go back, and can't wait.... thanks to everybody that made our stay at The Celestine Kyoto Gion so perfect and memorable.... ( This is by far the longest hotel review i have written , this is how much we loved it )...

Very Good8.0
Cool quiet vibe and well designed but small rooms
Very cool vibe in the hotel. Location is in an interesting residential area of Gion with nightlife, restaurants, and temples to visit. But, it is not close to public transportation. A long walk to the metro. Restaurant in the hotel was too expensive to consider eating there and there was not a good variety of food offered. Rooms are small but very well-designed, ingenious actually, to save space unless you want to store clothing. You have to live out of your suitcase. Nice upscale room amenities. Very quiet and zenlike atmosphere. Staff tried to be helpful but there was a language barrier. Shuttle to the train station runs once an hour and was helpful. Otherwise, taxis were not expensive.

An amazing hotel!
An amazing hotel! I spent a week in Kyoto & could not have been happier. A divinely comfortable bed, great wet bathroom & spacious room. The breakfast is great. And the onsen bath is truly amazing. Very walkable safe location with good bus & train connections. A beautiful zen temple complex in the next block. Great staff. Thanks Celestine Kyoto. I had a great time.

Beautiful and comfortable
This is a beautiful, amazing hotel right in Gion. It is only a few minute walk to all of the action, and is in a quiet area, across from a beautiful temple, and a few blocks away from several other astounding shrines as well. The room was very comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful, just like most people in Japan. I don't think our trip to Kyoto would have been the same if we had stayed elsewhere. The area near the train station is congested. If you are looking for a relaxing stay, this is the place, and a quick walk to the most desirable areas of Kyoto.
