They amazed us at every turn!

This is a very special property. Its location is near the train station in central Kyoto. The staff is what makes it excel, as they immediately acknowledge you when you enter, there is never a line at the front desk. The concierge was invaluable for us, finding restaurants, navigating through the city, and helping us with other logistics. The rooms are spotless, comfortable, quiet, and elegant. As an example of their helpfulness, they won’t let you hail a cab they will go out and get the cab for you explain to the driver where you want to go. It was amazing every time we needed help, they were tripping over themselves to do so. Five stars!

Central location in lovely Kyoto, affordable price with all the conveniences of a fine hotel

modern, very clean, trendy- nice blend of Japanese and Western design with a good restaurant serving Japanese and Western style dishes- a young, very kind concierge Mr Satoshi Ito was also very helpful in our daily search for local walks, local restaurants and all else Kyoto. Arigato Mr Satoshi Ito- you made a difference during our wonderful stay in Kyoto

Awesome experience

Hotel Kanra exceeded all of my expectations. They contacted me in Aspen as soon as I reserved a room asking to provide assistance. As a solo woman traveller they provided great recommendations for meals and sight seeing. Their staff exceeds any 5 star hotel and treated me exceptionally well.I especially appreciate the support of Satashi Itoto and Fuji San who were amazing.
I highly recommend this hotel.
