Recently, I stay 7 days in Hataka. The first 2 days I choose to stay in Dormy Inn Hataka Gion. (Actually, this hotel is recommended by my son.) Their room is clean and with acceptable size. Breakfast is great which suit international tourists' requirement. Every night from 21:00 to 23:00 they provide Ramen free of charge to their customers. Eventhough you come back late and hungry, no worry if you choose this hotel!
They also provide free shuttle bus from Gion to Hataka JR station every morning from 7:00 to 11:00.
Staffs are friendly and helpfull.
A bit regret that I haven't choose to stay 6 nights in this Hotel.
Next time if I visit Japen again, this Hotel will be my first choice.More
