    Fabulous

    The twin room at 40 sq metres is extremely huge for a Japanese hotel and the stay was very very comfortable. It was within walking distance to the convention centre, as well as to the subway station.

    I wish they had provided free internet.

  • 7.8
    Fabulous

    The proximity to my conference

    Staff speaks little English. Room is pricy for the quality of the room I stayed in, E.G. I was expecting a safe to use, but they remove the batteries to save energy/cost.

  • 6.2
    Good

    close to the subway station and a lovely park

    the fact that tea and coffee in the room were not included in the price of the room. very little information available in English

    Clean rooms, friendly staff.

    It takes about 30 - 60 minutes by public transport to go to the tourist highlights of Kyoto.

    There is nothing particularly wrong with this hotel (generally you get everything you expect from average European place with the same star rating), however probably the most impersonal place I have stayed in Japan. Room was really large and price for hotel category was good (~15000 JPY, but it seems this was due to a good discount). Breakfast was ok, but non-japanese and quite pricey (2500 JPY). Conveniently reachable from the station and/or central Kyoto (at the end station of subway line).

    The only reason for staying there is if you are having an event in the adjacent conference centre with tight mornings/evenings schedule. Although easy reachable by subway during daytime, you are left with taxi as only option, if you want to stay in central Kyoto later than ~11:30pm.

    This was the only hotel available in Kyoto during our visit to the city.

    Relatively far away from downtown Kyoto.

    Nothing. For a top grade hotel, it did not live up to its reputation of looking and providing the best for its guests.

    Staff performance below par. Poor value.

    I am not satisfied with the hotel receptionists. They are harsh and not easy-going, especially when it comes to the billing issue. Even you made a minor modification to your order, they are gonna charge you a huge amount of cancelation fee. They place hotel's interests above those of customers.

    I expected a better place especially if I compare it to Nara Hotel, where I had previously stayed three times.The hotel is far away from everything,the taxis to reachthe hotel are expensive, the service was good and so was the food.The room was good, clean and tidy.

    Very good

    Location next to the station and to all the buses, subwey etc..

    Rooms were too small and stuffy, I.E. smelled old and stuffy

    Fabulous

    The ability to transfer bags to/from Kyoto station. The lit cherry trees in the interior garden

    The lack of fresh fruit on the dinner buffet in the main restaurant
