Almost Perfect Hotel with Weak Breakfast
The hotel has wonderful & comfortable room. The service is great and the staff is friendly. The location is right by the Kyoto station makes it perfect to go anywhere. The only weakness for this Hotel is the breakfast buffet, it is more westerner focused. Many hotels breakfast I have stayed in area has way more varieties. They should send a survey team to Almont Hotel Kyoto to see what the other hotel is providing.

Very Good8.0
Under Rennovation, But Pleasant Stay Nonetheless
Their website said the property would undergo renovations through November 2018. I arrived for my stay in December and unexpectedly, it was still under renovation. I’m not sure if the property is planning to renovate the common areas, but the lobby, front desk, restaurant and elevators were pretty outdated. The room itself (Kyo Premium) was Japanese-style. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and came with a free smart phone to use during my stay — a great perk since I was traveling from the US with limited cell data. The front desk and housekeeping were top notch. Service at the restaurant could have been better, but I was there during lunch hours, so their staff may have just been overwhelmed. Hotel location is at Kyoto Station which makes getting around the city by rail easy. Overall, it was a pleasant stay for the price paid.

Best Hotel in Kyoto
The location was excellent (although a little confusing to find at first due to not understanding the massive train station exits). We had access to all transportation, sites and restaurantts within steps from the hotel. More importantly the service was impeccable :). The staff works really hard and are so courteous and well trained. We would highly recommend it. It should a classified as a 5 star hotel. It was newly renovated and a great oasis after a long day. Kudos!

Great location! Staff is friendly and rooms were great. Definitely recommend this very convenient hotel. We loved staying there. Even though it's going reconstruction it didn't bother us much since it's between the hours of 9am-5pm.
