Our favorite hotel during our two weeks in Japan!
We liked everything ! We were very happy and satisfied at Kamuroan. This might not be the best choice if you have young children, as the room contains delicate objects that children might be tempted to handle and cause damage.
Three adult family members spent three nights at Kamuroan. We all appreciated the great location, lovely, traditional tatami room, the kind and caring innkeepers who not only made special Christmas dinner reservations before we arrived, but were always available to give directions, help us understand the culture and recommend activities.
Kamuroan has just three guest rooms, and you will feel like you are someone's home. Our room on the ground floor was large, divided into the sleeping space and the sitting room, with an alcove dressing-room with a sink -- three people stayed very comfortably. I was wary of a hall-bathroom arrangement, however everything was beautiful, clean and felt very private.
Kaumuroan is in Gion, the neighborhood known for picturesque traditional architecture and lots of activity: an easy walk to restaurants, shopping, and bus lines. While it is in a lively area, the inn is on a quiet side street and the room was perfectly peaceful.
I can not say enough about how cheerful and friendly Okami-san the innkeeper is. We were in Kyoto for Christmas and she helped us make it festive. She found us the most exquisite, special restaurant for Christmas Eve dinner, explained things to us about the city and region, and helped us with finding good things to do and see.
We liked Kamuroan best of all the places we stayed in Japan: the yukata (cotton robes) were the nicest, the jackets so cozy, the room spacious with beautiful decorative detail.
Free wifi with a good, strong signal.
