4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities

The location of the hotel is ideal if you want a quieter area and which is close to the famous Temples near GION. The room is adequately furnished and comfortable making a quiet rest every night a dream. Amenities are limited but the spa is a nice touch especially to soothe the aching muscles after a day out exploring Kyoto. There are two things which dampen our stay : 1. We had booked a kaiseki lunch for our last day at a local restaurant through the hotel and all was good until the check out. For some reason the staff insisted that we leave our luggage behind and return to retrieve them after the lunch. As we had arranged to send our heavy suitcases to Osaka the day before, we only had our hand carry bags. It was ridiculous to ask us to walk back to the hotel after lunch as the restaurant is located on the other side of the river. It was a good 10-12 minutes walk. We didn’t give in and it was quite unpleasant to have to debate over this at check out. We are pretty sure it was a misunderstanding due to the language differences but it did sully our impression of this hotel. 2. The hotel does not practice green initiatives - they still supply toiletries in plastic bottles and there was no option to opt out of the daily sheet changing. Again we think it was a misunderstanding somewhere but it’s good to let the hotel know.

Located in the heart of the walkable historic Gion district, The Celestine features outstanding luxury rooms and amenities. Every detail has been well thought out from the welcome tea at reception through the beautifully scented aroma in the lobby. The staff go out of their way to be welcoming and helpful in every interaction. We felt thoroughly spoilt.

Prime location in Gion and within 10 to 15 mins, you are able to reach Keihan and Hankyu railway stations and Yakata tower, Ninenzaka are also close by in another direction. Some interesting resturants nearby and we have tried. izakaya Rubuto, a bar restarant which offered excellant healthy dishes and wines, and Tsuneo the chef of which is passionate about food and cooking. Hot bath on B1 is very clean and very well managed. Grateful for the helpful staff's efforts and dedication. Room is spacious and no complaint.
