Gimmond has an amazing location being close to Nishiki market, the main shopping street in Kyoto and Kurasma Oike metro stop, as well as being close to several restaurants, 7/11 and a Lawson's. The only downside to the hotel, and it's a big one, is the lack of comfortable beds. My mother and I stayed here last week for 4 days and it was honestly one of the most uncomfortable stretches of time I have ever had in my life. The beds genuinely were hard to the point where we could feel the metal springs in our legs and backs as we slept. It got to the point where my mother had to ask the front desk to have some pads put on our beds. This helped a little bit, but they were still very uncomfortable. The beds are also quite low, my mother has mobility issues, so this presented an issue.
Despite those issues, the customer service of the staff at the hotel was exceptional. They were always very accommodating and helpful and I really appreciate that. They ended up compensating us by taking a night off the bill. I hope they get those beds fixed, but in the meantime, if you just need a good location and bed to stay at in Kyoto, this is your place. Great pricing as well.
