Japanese hospitality in Gion

The hotel Sasarindo is located by Hanamikoji Street in the Gion area and is just a 3-minute walk from Yasaka Jinja. The hotel features air-conditioned Western-style rooms with an LCD satellite TV and an electric kettle. The lobby has an internet computer that is free for guests.

Each room has a unique design with a stylish ceiling, and include a spacious bathroom with a spa bath. The front desk is open 24 hours a day and provides a safe deposit. A free Japanese or Western breakfast is served in the dining room.

I enjoyed the hotel because of its great location, interesting design, the spa bath in a room and good Japanese breakfast. You can book this hotel through JapanTravel.com.

Getting there

The hotel is just 3-minute walk from Gion-Shijo Train Station and a 5-minute walk from Kawaramachi Train Station. Kennin-ji Temple is a 3-minute walk, and Kyoto Train Station is a 10-minute drive away.
