Aranvert Hotel Kyoto
Ranked #66 of 379 Hotels / Ryokan in Kyoto
Reviewed 18 September 2017

Can't believe I paid so much for a horrible hotel. Room is small for one person I could never imagine a couple sleeping here, and the bed is rock hard. My back will suffer for days. Even the pilows feel like they are packed with straw. No noise in my room, and the public bath is nice but was very busy. Can't wait to check out.

Room Tip: Back side is very quiet, but no choice in bed

The hotel is basic and good. Bed is comfortable. The room is quite small but it's common for a Japan hotel. Friendly and helpful staff and they allowed us to check in earlier. Strategic location where you can easily go to Kyoto station and Gion. There are Convenient stores located nearby the hotel. Overall stay is comfortable and worth with the money

We stayed for 2 nights in August and couldn't wait to leave this hotel. The room was ridiculously small (bedside table and light only on one side) which made getting changed a tag team activity. The room was noisy at night but this wasn't a problem as we couldn't sleep due to the rock hard mattress (that already had a topper on it). It was so hard that we left with bruises!! The shower head was too low on the wall for a relaxing shower. The location was good and the information pack looked pretty but we couldn't understand any of it as it was all in Japanese. The toiletries provided were also of a good standard.

We are so sorry for the room we prepared was not suitable for you.
We think you were so disappointed by such an uncomfortable situation.
Moreover, We apologize for the noise and the rock hard mattress prevents you from sleeping.
We should have considered more about your comfort.
And we try to improve about the information which is written in Japanese.
We do hope that we will meet you again in Kyoto. Thank you again for your staying.

The hotel is near Subway Gojo Station so it is very convenience. And in walking distance to Kyoto Station. The staff are very friendly and helpful. And the main reason is they provide a room with three bed so its very convenience to travel with family especially with children.

I love this hotel. All staffs are very friendly and helpful. We've asked Miss Shiho Mizuno to help us to reverse a good Kobe beef restaurant in Kobe city. She had tried several times but all said they were full. We had almost given up but then she said she could work on that when we were leaving. By the end of the day I've got an email saying we were reserved for the next day lunch. She made our day.
Hotel is located closed Gojo station, just one station above Kyoto Station. From there all buses to the most favorite attractions in Kyoto. Very convenient
