Would want to return after your first stay
Will definitely come back and stay again. They have shuttle bus that bring you to Kyoto station where you can board other train, subway and buses to different part of Kyoto city. The shuttle services run from 9am to 7pm, if Rihga Royal can extend this service to 9pm will be great help to tourist like us never the less drivers are excellent. And the concierge lady communicate in very good English, which is a big plus for asking of direction.

Friendly staff and very clean hotel. We checked-in very late but the staff was very kind and had everything ready so everything was very smooth. The family room they provided was very spacious and comfortable. Looking forward to staying here again when visit again.

Everything about the hotel exceeds my expectation. It's an elegant hotel with established services, including a shuttle to and from Kyoto Station. Within a very short walking distance to Kyoto Station, Kyoto Tower, and several shopping options, with limitless dining options. Although I found the limited surface (and electrical outlets) in my room a bit challenging, the RIGHA Royal Hotel is a fantastic choice in Kyoto.
