We were really pleasantly surprised by how big the room is. We are a family of 4--2 adults and 2 teenagers and we booked the 2 queen bed room. The size of the room is easily double of what we got for the same rate in Tokyo. The decor is modern and tasteful. Air conditioning worked really nice--and that makes a big difference in the June summer heat. The bathroom was elegant! It's got a wood tub as well as a standing shower. Of course, the toilet has the prerequisite bidet. We really liked the fact that the hotel is next to the temple. We had nice strolls through the temple grounds early in the morning when it was nice and quiet as well as later on in the day with our children. Although it's in the middle of the city, it's very quiet. We walked to and from the Kyoto station to the hotel, approximately 5-10 minutes. Even in the heat, it wasn't that bad. However, to get to the old town (Goen), you'll have to take a taxi and it's approximately 10 minutes away. I would also strongly recommend getting the package where breakfast is included. We tried both the western breakfast as well as the traditional Japanese breakfast--both were delicious! Overall, highly recommended for a family vacation or a couple's trip!

We had a wonderful experience at Hotel Kanra. The rooms were spotless, service was excellent and the entire hotel spelled wonderful. They have their own aroma therapy scent blended for the hotel and it's available to purchase. The onsite restaurant was accommodating to part of our party that was vegan with soy allergies. This can be a difficult combination in Japan. We were well taken care of and enjoyed our trip.

From the moment we arrived every member of the staff was extremely helpful. The rooms are clean, beds comfortable, bathrooms modern, and rooms are spacious. The cafe in the lobby is great for a quick bite in the am. The restaurant in the building was accommodating for a gluten allergy.

The hotel lived up to its high traveler reviews. We had 2 rooms on the 3rd floor and they were clean, quiet, and the air conditioning was great. The bathroom shower and cedar tub were beautiful and water pressure was strong. Storage was adequate. While the rooms are a bit narrow, they are very functionally laid out and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom mirror was a bit low for a 6' tall man, but certainly didn't negatively impact our experience.The hotel staff was very helpful in hailing cabs and speaking Japanese to drivers advising where we wanted to go, and in securing restaurant reservations. Walking distance to Starbucks, train station and a large temple (sightseeing). We liked the small feel (boutique like).

We spent several nights at Hotel Kanra for our honeymoon, and were thrilled with every detail. The staff was incredibly responsive and helpful in the weeks leading up to our stay, as they made several reservations on our behalf - and even relayed information regarding our allergies and special occasion to each restaurant. This high level of service continued throughout our stay. They even left us a note and some chopsticks as a gift for our celebration!
Our room was in the annex, and was one of the largest we had throughout our three weeks in Japan. The decor was beautiful - we particularly liked the wooden bathtub. We would definitely return, and highly recommend.
