Fabulous 8.8 From 2,893 reviews

Very Good 8.0
Pleasant stay
As expected, warm and professional reception upon check-in. Rooms were very clean. Breakfast buffet was good. Booked for one night, but ended up staying an extra night. Received an upgraded room on first night. Room was Japanese style room with city view. Room was kind of dated and dark, but comfortable and on the bigger side ( size wise). Also had nespresso machine to make coffee in the room! Second night, was switched to lower floor, view of opposite side of hotel ( roof top).Room was a bit smaller, but roomy enough. The room felt was brighter and updated. One gripe I had was that there were no irons in both of the rooms. Otherwise the hotel was close to train station ( 15 minute walk) and hotel shuttle is provided by the hotel to/from Kyoto station. I would stay again!

Exceeded Expectations
Best buffet breakfast- outstanding, fresh, good variety. Room was very spacious. Loved the separate living room, modern bathroom, cleanliness and outstanding service. Reasonable rates. Also excellent location- close to close to Kyoto station and central in the city. We would stay here again and again and recommend this hotel to everyone!
Christian, us1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
Very centrally located - about 7/8 minutes from Kyoto Station. The service staff is very professional and courteous. The swimming pool; is grand. There was a miscommunication when we asked for the when it closes and were informed that it is 9pm. We were not told that last admission is at 8pm. When we showed up at 8:15 pm, we were not allowed to use the pool. I informed the manager of the issue, and we lucked out as we were not leaving till the next day
