About RIHGA Royal Hotel Kyoto, Kyoto

Hotel with revolving rooftop dining, only 2 blocks from Kyoto Station
Location, Location

The Rihga Royal Hotel Kyoto is conveniently located only 2 blocks from Kyoto Station and offers a free roundtrip train station shuttle, and free limited parking. The hotel’s central location is ideal for exploring this 1,200 year-old city that exquisitely blends the modern with the ancient.


Explore the ancient capital

You are only a hop, skip, and jump from Kyoto Station, the jumping off point for Kyoto’s must-see attractions. You can catch the subway to Nijo-jo and the Imperial Palace, or travel by train to the orange gates of Fushimi Inari, or the bronze Buddha of Todai-ji in Nara.


View Kyoto from the top

In addition to 6 restaurants including fine French cuisine, the rotating 14th floor restaurant Top of Kyoto showcases the city’s unique skyline of modern buildings and ancient pagodas. After a day of sightseeing, you can find relaxation in the hotel’s indoor pool (surcharge), or break a sweat in the fitness facility.


Japanese tradition, modern conveniences

Much like Kyoto, the air-conditioned hotel rooms at Rihga Royal Hotel Kyoto are a blend of Japanese tradition and modern conveniences. The clean, comfortable, and quite rooms include free WiFi and wired Internet access.

Very Good8.0
2 nights in Kyoto
Hotel is very well located near to the train station. The lobby, restaurants and all general facilities are very nice. The room we received (on floor 10) was quite small. The WiFi was dropping from time to time. All in all we were satisfied and would recommend this hotel to other people.

Not impressed
WiFi was atrocious. Rooms were drab. Breakfast buffet was disappointing and overpriced. Location was close to train station, but neighborhood was ugly and not close to any landmarks.

Exceptional10.0
The hotel is super nice and the staff is very friendly. The only complaint is that the wifi is terrible. If you're trying to work from here, you will have to sit in the lobby because I'm not even on the top floor and I can barely download an email.
