You can't get better than Mume. Is simply the best. From the warm welcome and easy check in to the best breakfast I've had. It is a beautifully crafted experience. Great customer service and beautiful place in the best part of town. Really central to get around and right in the heart of Gion. We stayed there in our honeymoon...

This boutique hotel is absolutely amazing. We've travelled internationally a lot and have NEVER experienced such great service. Firstly, the accommodation & included breaky is amazing on its own. Add nightly happy hour (all drinks & snacks included) where they take the time to provide you recommendations, print maps/Google anything you want, confirm your bookings (without you even asking), and...

I would give this boutique hotel 6 out of 5 if I could, what an amazing place to stay! Our family of four stayed in the wind rooms for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were large and very clean with lovely furnishings, a western style bathroom and a large landscape window overlooking the canal....

Had a magical time at Mume during a three night stay last week. The owner and colleagues are simply lovely. Very helpful recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing and transportation. The traditional breakfast was divine each morning. The happy hour was a blast. Got to know other guests, great recommendations for other restaurants and travel destinations. This was a highlight of the...

Arrived by train from Hakone and used the instructions to get a taxi from the station to the hotel. We were greeted at the front door by the staff and from that moment it was like visiting old friends. The staff are exceptional and the service amazing. We had tea whilst our bags were whisked away and the checking in...

This is my second stay here. After 1.5 years I was happy to find that nothing has changed....this hotel is still an amazing place. It was fun to share the "Mume experience" with some friends this time. I realise the price is up there and it's by no means the Taj Mahal, but you get a lovely boutique environment and...

We stayed in Mume with my friend for few days. The hotel was small but was located in Gion, which was so convenient to go everywhere. Great service, beautiful rooms with Chinese antique furniture. Breakfast was delicious and outstanding with many choices. You could get far more than you would imagine. If one wants to stay in a boutique hotel...

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Mume for two nights last week, and it was excellent. From the get-go, the service was homely and friendly. For example: we were offered a hot drink every time we were downstairs in the lobby. All the women working there went above and beyond to make our stay a memorable one. While Kyoto...

We were able to return to Kyoto and Hotel Mume this November, and were happy to find that all the good things we cited in our previous review are still true. We reserved close to a year in advance and still didn't get our preferred room ... but that didn't matter. All the rooms we've seen are adequate. Moreover, the...

Staying in Gion

Neighbourhood Profile
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
