The hotel is lovely and well located. But take care to communicate your expectations and get confirmation in writing. In early March, a family member and I booked two rooms in this hotel for three days in April. A couple of days later we extended the stay by one night, fully expecting that we would be able to stay in the rooms the fourth night. Upon checking in, despite communication with the hotel, the fourth night was not linked with the reservation, and once found we were told we had to move rooms for the fourth night. That was not communicated to us at the time of the booking even though I’d emailed that we were holding reservations for three nights prior and had just booked a 4th. I fully expected that there would not be any glitches. Having to change rooms during a stay Isn’t the end of the world, just an inconvenience at the end of a long trip. It just would’ve been nice for someone to communicate that at the time of booking.

A wonderful stay for four nights at this very welcoming hotel. The staff was very welcoming and informative upon check-in. You could tell from the minute you entered that it was very in tune with the environment with an atrium, full of plants and warm woods. The room was large and well appointed with slippers and robes, and some welcome chocolates, the hotel is perfectly located in walking distance to markets restaurants cafés, shopping temples. Taxis available right outside was a big help to get to sites that were further away, but also walking distance to the metro wonderful nightlife, walking distance, and wonderful restaurants within the hotel complex the hotel also had a very inviting Lounge with small delicious bites and drinks. That was a welcome after walking so much throughout the city. would highly recommend this hotel, and would look forward to returning here.

We loved our stay at Good Nature! The location was fantastic. The room was comfortable and had everything we needed. And we LOVED the buffet breakfast. The staff's English was great and they even held our bags after check out on our last day while we went to explore. We would definitely stay here again!

All of which add up to a wonderful stay in the amazing prefecture of Kyoto. I give my daughter-in-law credit for selecting this hotel as she chose wisely. The Libby is located on the 4th floor, above a delightful market on the ground floor where basic as well as gourmet food items can be purchased, in addition to an excellent restaurant and bar where my husband and I had the pleasure of indulging in a five course dinner one night, and exotic drinks on two evenings. Our room was large, overlooking the inner courtyard below but with sufficient privacy. As it was a bit closer to the street, there was some early morning traffic noise that could be heard that occasionally extended into the night, however not enough to disrupt sleep - especially after lengthy days of sightseeing, which had been easy to accomplish being in proximity to the subway and directly across from the taxi stand. Best as far as I was concerned, the amazing Takashimaya department store was right down the block - seven extensive floors of the most incredible shopping! We enjoyed our daily breakfast that started at 8 am in the cafe located on the lobby level, and occasionally resting on the comfortable longe chairs in the atrium. Staff arranged for the seamless transfer of our luggage to our next hotel in Tokyo, graciously and efficiently.

The hotel is in an excellent location with a very short walk to the shops and market. The hotel room is very spacious with modern amenities. The staff are friendly and attentive. The shop adjoined to the hotel is great for snacks etc. it was a nice touch to be given vouchers at check in to spend in the shop. Highly recommend Good Nature if you are looking for a modern, clean and central located hotel.

My Sister, niece and me stayed on Mid August 2023 for 3 nights in Good Nature Hotel Kyoto. First, I must praise the VERY spacious room with 3 BIG Separate beds (NOT a roller bad or something similar). G R E A T. The Hotel is in a great location close to shopping area and you feel you're in the center of the city. The hotel staff is efficient and courteous. The Breakfast has a lot of wide range possibilities for every taste. We didn't noticed the house keeping stuff, but the room was always very clean and tidy. We also loved the wonderful shower and bath. Love to come again.

We stayed at Good Nature for our honeymoon. This hotel has a very convenient location, opposite the metro station. Under the hotel is the Good Nature Station, a sort of food hall with various decadent bits and pieces. Our room was huge for Japan standards, with a queen bed and wonderful shower and bath. It felt very luxurious. Breakfast was varied and catered to all palettes. A wonderful stay!!!
