Kyoto Hotels and Ryokan Help

Jump to last reply

I am returning to Kyoto for four or five days, and I have found three places which look great to me. Two new boutique hotels: The Mume and the Hotel Kanra. And one Inn, the Shiraume. I am considering maybe splitting up my stay so I can experience different places; maybe two or three nights in one of the modern boutique hotels, then one or two nights in the Shiraume. One thing appealing to me about the Shiraume is that dinner is not mandatory as at the other Ryokan I have stayed at, Hiiragiya.

Any thoughts on these lodging choices, or on the idea to split up the stay, which I often do to experience a different a hotel and neighborhood?

The Mume looks incredible, but with only 7 rooms is like a b and b, not generally my preference; but the effusive reviews about the service are as good as I have seen for any property anywhere.....The Kanra looks like spectacular design which appeals to me strongly....And the Shiraume looks like a wonderful traditional, but somewhat more relaxed Ryokan....I think all of the locations look great, particularly the Mume and Shiraume.

Any thoughts or advice from those familiar with these properties?

Thank you.
