Nice hotel in a quiet neighborhood

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Mar 2020via mobile
We booked 4 nights from Villa Aneyakoji and enjoyed all of them. The villa was located on a quiet street close to subway station and bus stops. Several restaurants nearby. The room had lot of space and was very tidy.
As said, we booked the room from Villa Aneyakoji however the sign outside the entrance said Villa Mayu Grace. The check in was made at the hotel Mayu Grace located around the corner. Little bit confusing, but we found our way in and the staff was very friendly.
The hotel didn't offer any breakfast, but they gave few recommendations on restaurants closeby. We chose 7-Eleven option 200m from the hotel.

The location is about a ten minute walk to a metro station that is 3 stops to Kyoto station. So it is relatively convenient to get to Kyoto Station from the hotel. It is in a quiet area of central Kyoto. We found the neighborhood interesting - a bit artsy, and bit off the beaten tourist track. The room itself was lovely.

Me and my wonderful wife enjoyed this accommodation. The staff is really kind and well prepared. The town is amazing, you can see the real Japan. I strongly advice to visit Gion and the close streets. Especially, watch Kiyomizu Dera.

Small hotel, but excellent service. Very close to restaurants and experiences.
OK breakfast option... Or you can either try the local bakery or 7-11 near by.
Thank you to the employees at the hotel for being very helpful.

This was a wonderful boutique hotel in Kyoto, and my favorite stay out of our entire trip in Japan. The location was great -- near transportation to get to the sites and the restaurants in the neighborhood were gems! Breakfast in the morning was phenomenal, and the staff was beyond welcoming and helpful (especially Ms. Hiroko). My husband and I had the best stay here.

This intimate, modern and stylish hotel was our favourite on our recent travels in Japan. We are a family of four (two late teenage boys), needing two rooms. The hotel has two rooms on each floor and we had the second floor to ourselves, so it was very private. The rooms were a little larger than average for Japan, so that was welcome - and nicely appointed with textile finishes on walls and ceilings. Beds were comfortable and the rooms kept very clean. The hotel is in a convenient central location, easy walking distance to subway, the centre of town, restaurants and the major tourist attraction Nijo Castle. The low-rise inner suburban street position places you closer to the local day-to-day activity. A special mention goes to the staff for their level of service - both in the lead up to our arrival and during our stay. Long before we arrived in Kyoto, we were in contact with the hotel about day tours and events. They helped us with both recommendations and bookings, right down to practical advice on travel times between sites. Throughout, we found the staff to be friendly, attentive and they were always on-hand (24/7). We didn't get to see and do everything we wanted to in Kyoto (there is just so much), so when we come back we'll definitely be staying at Villa Aneyakoji again.

Room tip: Rooms on Level 2 are arranged with a front room facing the street and a rear room facing the building behind.
