This was our first stop in Japan. We were very jetlagged and arrived a bit early. We left our cases at reception and explored the temple right at the end of the road. The location is great and a fantastic base for all the temples. The buses are OK to use with Google maps {a little confusing to find the right stops for a first timer} and I would highly recommend a suica/pasmo card as the public transport is great around the hotel. Starbucks was great to have under the hotel, but there are plenty of food options nearby. A very safe area. The room was clean, but small and no wardrobe. But great for a base. I would recommend

This Japanese business hotel has renovated rooms in an old building. The English speaking Japanese receptionist quickly, efficiently and warmly processed our check in. Our twin bed room had without doubt the most comfortable mattresses I've ever slept in! So nice!! Water pressure in the compact bathroom's shower was strong and hot water was immediate. Breakfast had an interesting variety of Western and Japanese items. The coffee machine was great!. Baggage can be dropped off before check in and left after check out at reception for no extra charge. Umbrellas are available for rainy weather. This hotel's location is perfect for exploring Gion. Since the lobby is on the second floor, it's possible to take the elevator from the street entrance on the first floor directly to your room, completely bypassing the lobby, something I haven't seen before. The APA Gion offers tremendous value for the money paid. I most certainly would be willing to return for another stay.

I stayed in a triple room with my husband and 8-year-old daughter for one night at the APA Gion in June 2019. Although I specifically booked a nonsmoking room, our room smelled SO terrible, like a combination of stale smoke and something else that we couldn’t quite place. The beds were excruciatingly uncomfortable. This is all very unfortunate, as the hotel did have a number of positive attributes. The room was quite spacious, and pretty much any toiletry item you could imagine was provided. Small origami swans greeted us on the beds, and our window looked out onto the city and mountains beyond. But above all, the property’s greatest strength is its location, which is so close to Yasaka Shrine that the shrine was actually listed as the meeting place on the “in case of emergency” sign on the back of our room door. It was very much an example of “you get what you pay for.” If you’re looking for a cheap, well-located place for a night in Kyoto, it might be worth looking past the horrible smell and the fact that the beds are so uncomfortable that you’ll have basically no chance of sleeping. But if you plan to stay longer than one night and/or hope to spend any time in your room, I would highly recommend looking elsewhere!

Great hotel for those on a budget. 60 euro per night for a twin room. Centrally located in the heart of Kyoto's geisha district. Filled with shrines and temples and a busy nightlife after dark. The hotel staff spoke English and were eager to accommodate. Rooms were air conditioned and spotlessly clean as were all the rooms in all the Apa hotels we stayed in on our visit to Japan. Highly recommend:)
