We loved this hotel. The location is fantastic, interior is modern and comfortable, and the staff was extremely helpful. The woman who helped us check in the first day, Akiko Sukurai, even took us on a tour of the Higashi Honganji temple and nearby gardens...More
If you’re anything like us, you were intrigued by Ryokan but a little afraid of jumping that head first into an experience like that for the first time. Hotel Kanra is an excellent blend of Ryokan style and service with Western luxury amenities and choices....More
We stayed for 5 days. The room had a nice view of the Higashihonganji temple and Kyoto tower. Hotel is good located and the staff at the reception was super frienly and helpful. The tea in the room was great.

The Hotel Kanra was a pretty little boutique hotel, with attractive rooms that were well-maintained, and had that distinct Japanese aesthetic. Room with the half-tatami flooring was very good for my infant son, since he could crawl safely. The staff were extremely helpful and responsive...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

We stayed in a Twin Annexe room (annexe is the original building) Two beds were enormous, side by side with little/no gap. We both slept in one, easily a large double size. So depending on your teens you may not even need a futon, but that would be set up in the tatami seating area at one end of the room. Plenty of space! Hotel website states bed sizes as 1300-1400mm width
