This Hotel is Family Friendly.

Terrific Service, clean, and spacious.

Terrific Service, it deserves another mention.

It is not easy traveling in Big Groups especially with Kids.

However they are more than accommodating to us and make our stay more than enjoyable-

—-

They also went the extra mile to help me out,

Ordered an item from Amazon only to find the item lost in shipping ,

Its not their duty to help me, but they did call Amazon for me and help me track the item and reroute it to Kanra.

Special Thanks to Aoi Ishiyama from Concierge for this.

Will definitely visit Kanra again very soon. With more Family & Friends.

Exceptional stay. The rooms are comfortably zen, beautifully designed, with tatami tv lounge area and the beds are a pleasure to be in, very chic. My partner said she half expected Uma Thurman in Kill Bill would crash through the Japanese screen. The bathrooms are unreal, with wooden baths, and very good showers. Kyoto is flat, and so the hotels free bikes were the perfect way to connect with this very cool city. The subway is also right beside the hotel.
The key thing to mention is the attentive staff. I’ve never met such a lovely team of hoteliers. The breakfast staff on the lobby coffee shop were brilliant and made great coffee, but try the ginger tea!
This is definitely in my top five hotels ever. I hope you have as pleasant a time as we did. Has to be said that we were there in January and the crowds were minimal. Recommend that too.

Location is very nice if you use Kyoto train station. We walked from the train station to the hotel since the weather was really nice. Breakfast was very good. Service overall was nice friendly and pleasant. Rooms are quite big for jap standards and decoration is modern. Very clean as most hotels in Japan. We d like to visit again.

I don't know what it was about the Kanra but it was a fantastic choice for us.

Easy walking distance from Kyoto Station and not too far to get to Gion, even on foot, at least for us who love to walk.

There is something very calming about the hotel, and the layouts of the rooms. We stayed at the Kanra twice during our visit of Japan as we used it to explore Kyoto first, moved to another city and then returned to the Kanra as a base to travel around by train a second time.

The rooms are modern and very well laid out. Breakfast is plentiful and you have a choice of western or Japanese, both of which are amazing quality. The service we received from the front desk was helpful and efficient.

The only thing that originally made me hesitate about the Kanra is it's distance to Gion and the true center of Kyoto and the fact that it was located near the train station, which in many cities around the world does not bode well for a hotel as it's usually a grotty area but this turned out to be a great choice especially if you want to travel in/out of Kyoto station during at least part of your stay.

Would highly recommend!

Our first hotel on our trip, and it paved the way to a very great experience in Japan. The staff was so gracious, the room was so clean. The bathroom was gorgeous, loved the wooded tub. The breakfast was delicious, both Japanese and western. It was a 10 min walk from Kyoto Station. Right by a beautiful temple too.
