Lovely Stay

by perthtravellers4 on 26 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

I would give this boutique hotel 6 out of 5 if I could, what an amazing place to stay! Our family of four stayed in the wind rooms for 4 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The rooms were large and very clean with lovely furnishings, a western style bathroom and a large landscape window overlooking the canal. The staff are amazing and the service they offer rates among the best we have ever experienced.This was our first trip to Kyoto and although we had a good guide book, we were pro...

Mume loves you! I love Mume

by Jennifer L on 25 Jan 2017 (Couple Traveller)

Had a magical time at Mume during a three night stay last week. The owner and colleagues are simply lovely. Very helpful recommendations for restaurants, sightseeing and transportation. The traditional breakfast was divine each morning. The happy hour was a blast. Got to know other guests, great recommendations for other restaurants and travel destinations. This was a highlight of the cozy hotel. Had Room 1 with the beautiful view of the canal. Room product was comfortable and clean.

A real gem

Arrived by train from Hakone and used the instructions to get a taxi from the station to the hotel. We were greeted at the front door by the staff and from that moment it was like visiting old friends. The staff are exceptional and the service amazing. We had tea whilst our bags were whisked away and the checking in completed. Maps and suggestions for dinner were provided and nothing was too much trouble. Happy hour drinks were enjoyed with other guests and the staff assisted with reservation...

Still amazing

by Wayne R on 20 Jan 2017 (Friends Traveller)

This is my second stay here. After 1.5 years I was happy to find that nothing has changed....this hotel is still an amazing place. It was fun to share the "Mume experience" with some friends this time. I realise the price is up there and it's by no means the Taj Mahal, but you get a lovely boutique environment and some of the most friendly and kind-hearted staff that I have ever come across in all my travels. I still think you are missing out if you don't stay at Mume when in Kyoto. Thanks agai...

Great hotel

by pavt580 on 14 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We stayed in Mume with my friend for few days. The hotel was small but was located in Gion, which was so convenient to go everywhere. Great service, beautiful rooms with Chinese antique furniture. Breakfast was delicious and outstanding with many choices. You could get far more than you would imagine. If one wants to stay in a boutique hotel instead of a traditional Ryokan in Kyoto , this is the perfect place to go. !!
