The WiFi password mumelovesyou sums this hotel up! I have never stayed at an hotel that pays so much care and attention to their guests. All of the staff, led by Hisako, are extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful, taking the time to talk through their guests plans, offer suggestions, print maps, even print off timetables. The restaurant they recommended (Mikaku)...

I booked a room at Hotel Mume based on the stellar reviews of fellow Trip Advisor users. The reviews were dead-on accurate, and our stay in this small but beautiful property was definitely one my wife and I will never forget. There are a total of seven rooms in the hotel. I booked the Moon room, which I hesitated to...

We stayed for 1 week at the end of January in this magnificent boutique hotel. Set in Gion, the old area of Kyoto, in the antique shop area, this is the closest to staying in a Ryokan with all the mod cons that you could want. The rooms are beautiful ( we were lucky enough to be upgraded to the...

Wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in Kyoto. Mume Hotel staff are brilliant, so helpful, so friendly. From the beauty of the hotel itself, carefully crafted by the owner, Hisako, to the considerate, kind, intelligent and lovely staff, this hotel is quality, elegance, and good value. Oh, and their home made plum wine (if available) at happy hour is a must..as...

Hotel Mume made our visit to Kyoto very special. The excellent personalized concierge service provided by Mume enabled us to easily enjoy discovering / exploring the city on our own, without much advance preparation. Based on our interests and capabilities, they recommended places to go, how to get there (including schedules for public transportation and printouts of Google street views...

Mume is just fabulous! My 15-year old daughter and I had spent a couple of days in Kyoto last year and knew that we wanted to return to explore further, which we did last week. As it was just the two of us, Mume seemed to be the ideal hotel, and it most certainly was. The location was perfect --...

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...

Staying in City Center

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
