Nice stay at Kyoto Tower Hotel
Convenient location, right across the street from Kyoto station and bus stops. We stayed in the traditional room (50 square meters) so we had more than enough room for our party of 3. Loved that there was a separate tatami seating area. The room was clean and comfortable for our 1 night stay. Friendly staff had our bags all lined up in our room when we returned to the hotel at check in time and gave us complimentary tickets to Kyoto Tower observation deck. Breakfast buffet was good with a nice variety of food. We would stay here again if we are back in the area.

The location was perfect. The room was a little cramped with little space to open the luggage. The bathroom was nice but with very little counter space. The biggest problem was a 12 inch step up into the bathroom and a definite fall hazard coming out. The tub was tall and would not recommend this hotel unless you feel comfortable with high step ups. The breakfast buffet was good with plenty of options.

The service of the staff is excellent. However the room condition is disappointed. The air conditioning is old and the cleanliness is not good
