Great hotel so close to the station.

Good 6.0
TINY room.
It was very comfortable but SO TINY. I've had cabins on cruise ships that are bigger. Seriously, it was that small. Location was perfect, the room was very quiet.. but if I had it to do again, I might pick a different place for the money.

Great experience, convenient location, a little hard to find when I arrived. Not sure what the JPY 200 per day room tax they charged was about. Not a big amount but I found it unusual.
Ali, us3 night trip
Very Good 8.0
It was the best staff ever. However, it’s a little confusing there are two sister hotels joined together. The century hotel is a down grade the the sister hotel called The Thousand Hotel. The pictures on your sight is the Thousand even if your booking the Century. It was a little disappointing because the Century hotel has no fitness center or spa in which is a usually a deal killer.

MUST stay when in Kyoto
what an incredible hotel!!! Honestly, I, myself come out of the hospitality industry and I have to say, this hotel blew me away - in every way possible the Staff is out of this world, from the front desk, to the restaurant, the bellman, to the concierge and the bartenders - every single person - helpful, friendly, lovely, warm Ju at the bar, made our trip unforgetable How nice, and caring and going the extra mile of a person he is. He ran after us, with some crackers, as a snack for our way, to Tokyo late that night. We were beyond blown away the rooms were fantastic, especially the mobile phone they offer, is a genius idea. You can take it anywhere with you, you have internet, can make calls or use it as a navigation system - fantastic idea We also loved the breakfast - they have a Japanese section, a Chinese section and a Western Section, but from Jellyfish, to duck Pancakes, to cold cuts to fresh fruit to Panna Cotta and Omelets, everything you could ask for overall, I will recommend your hotel, to every single person going to Kyoto

Location, comfort and convenience
Location is superb for all our adventures. Staff friendly and very helpful for any of our needs. Wonderful breakfast buffet filled with food that will appeal to visitors from around the world. The room was a little small for travelers with large luggage but we managed just fine. The room is comfortable otherwise. We visited the bar and as expected it was inviting and relaxing with great service. Recommended for any tourist visitors, with the train and bus terminal close by as well as shopping dining and historic sites all within walking distance.

Convenient access to JR Kyoto station
Clean and very value for money. Buffet breakfast spread was excellent. We arrived early and put our bags in storage as our room was not ready yet. When we returned in the afternoon, the hotel had kindly put our bags in our room. Friendly, polite and excellent service by hotel staff.
