RIHGA Royal Hotel Kyoto was fantastic. Conveniently located close to station and had shuttle service. Our room was very spacious with wonderful amenities. The breakfast buffet had so many choices from typical American fare to Japanese dishes. Will definitely stay here again on my next visit to Kyoto!
