Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

MOGANA black room is the most beautiful room I have ever visited with the perfect combination of Zen, Japanese aesthetic and contemporary design.

Service is excellent with great recommendations on what to eat and do in Kyoto.

Overall, a bit on the pricey side but well worth the experience if you love Japanese minimalism at its very best

This hotel is beautifully designed in a minimalist style and you can read all about the architecture on the website. In spite of the rather stark approach, the room was actually very comfortable with a big bathroom, bath big enough for two and a giant bed. Breakfast was served in the room and was different each day with a mixture of Japanese and more Western items. Coffee and tea were served and there was water in the room as well as tea, coffee and some biscuits. Plenty of amenities and all high quality. You can choose whether to have your room cleaned each day or whether to just have clean towels or neither. A good nod to environmental sustainability which also affords additional privacy.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. We borrowed umbrellas, they made a restaurant reservation for me and confirmed it on arrival, booked taxis and organised our luggage forwarding.
An extra lovely touch was that they gave me a birthday present as I was leaving. My partner had mentioned it was my birthday less than half an hour before when our breakfast was delivered so to receive a beautifully wrapped gift and card when checking out was a really nice surprise.
It’s a quiet location but very convenient for some museums and with great transport links.
Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes this style of architecture - we did find it a bit dark at times so I’d probably book a white room if returning!

First time back in Japan in almost three years. Decided to stay at very modern, high design, Mogana this time because of all the positive reviews. The location is not as convenient as some other hotels but it gave me a chance to see a less tourist filled side of Kyoto with lots of side alleys that made the whole experience more of a discovery. I arrived by taxi after the Haruka express from Kansai airport and check in was quick and efficient. The room looked exactly as it does in photos: Minimalist glass pod. Onsen style black granite bathtub. Lighting is a bit too fluorescent for me, for a hotel room (room 602) the lighting used should be more warm (I had to filter photos for my photo album). Aircon was also a bit loud at night. Otherwise I was quite happy with Mogana, especially liked the rock garden outside with the courtyard plants wall that allowed a peak at the sky, the frosted glass in front of the bed allowed in muted sunlight, all very clever, modern yet Japanese aesthetics.

A beautiful minimalist hotel that whispers cool through its geometric black corridors.
The rooms are either white, black or grey. All are very comfortable.
The staff are superb and look equally cool, dressed head to to in Issey Miyake.
There are no televisions in the rooms, nothing to detract from the zen atmosphere.

I spent few nights when I was in Kyoto. MOGANA has a very beautiful architecture, stylish accommodation. Everything was so perfect. And lots of warm services.
The remarkable parts is a black stone bathroom. It is almost an art to see how water make paints and hear the water sounds.
I also loved so much the super healthy and delicious Kyoto style breakfast which has so much seasons in the variable little dishes. ( The table is little bit too low for westerns I guess...)
I wished to have a small desk in a room.
When I come back Kyoto, I am sure come back again in this hotel.
If you are looking for a memorable place for a Kyoto, then I think here is the place.
