Currently prices are quite reasonable for decent-sized rooms. Including breakfast and lounge access is worthwhile, although on Saturday the lounge filled up and it was a 90 minute wait to get in. Location is near a station on the northern edge of the city, meaning most places are not a short walk, but transport can get you there. Nice fitness area. No hot springs though. Free parking, but driving through city takes ages. A car makes sense if you are heading north though.

If you want quiet and peace, this is a good 5 star hotel to stay. Very reasonable price for a 5 star hotel. Near the metro rail system as well - walking distance. There not much eating establishments near though. You may have to walk a few meters to find a good place to eat with very reasonable price.

The hotel is located far from all the attractions. But there is a subway nearby so it is still accessible easily. It is an old hotel but still in good condition. Comfy bed, friendly staffs and being far from the busy area gives it a peaceful and quiet feel. Best location to stay if you are attending an event at Kyoto International Conversation Center.

Good - Royal floor lounge. Spacious room. Bad - so bad we voted with our feet 5 star prices but not 5 star, especially after 3 nights in Tokyo New Otani hotel. Choice of queue for breakfast in one restaurant or the gold room. It was worse than St Thomas primary school canteen, complete with greasy table cloth and non existent service. We gave them the opportunity to put this right by reserving table at 07:30 but not prepared to do that so we cut short our 4 night stay and checked out. Had they put this right we would probably have stayed. Hardly anyone spoke good English. Not very well staffed. Bed was rock hard. Poor location at the end of a subway line way out. Yet Booking.com think it was a “great location”. Infested with party of school kids. Coffee table in the room had multiple cup rings and stains on, should have been a clue to what to expect. No bottled water or towelling gowns in room.

It is grand, all right. But it seems to be stuck on its past glory, and misses a some amenities that modern high-class hotel should have; one example is the breakfast buffet, which is adequate, but not what one would expect from the price. We did not even bother with the hotel restaurants for the dinner. The service is polite, but one gets an impression that they are only as helpful as they have to be. On the plus side, the rooms are about the size of those in the good hotels in the US, that is, huge by the Japanese standards. Also, there is an easy access to the subway, which is very handy for exploring Kyoto, and for eating out, since there are many excellent restaurants available in Kyoto,

Firstly, room, view first class. Massive bed and room, great view on 6th floor of the countryside and mountains. It's about 10 mins ro train station then it's around 15 mins to Kyoto city centre. We arrived on a Monday thought I'd go yo the bar and enjoy a nice draft Asahi or kirin....except, bar not open on Mondays. Had a coffee at the coffee bar...£12 equivalent for a coffee! I'm guessing that the vast majority of guests are conference delegates with deep expense accounts, but for a tourist, 12 pounds for a coffee is a bit naughty. After a great day visiting Kyoto's great sites, we returned I thought let's try the bar before heading into town to eat. The menu suggested a draft beer or bottled beer, in fact there was no draft beer, it was either bottled or bottled beer and the same one..quite bizarre! Fortunately there is a brilliant craft beer / restaurant in downtown Kyoto, so no reason whatsoever to spend time and money at the hotel. Breakfast was fine, not the biggest choice but good enough. In summary, it's a big but rather soulless hotel. With the right guidance it could be s brilliant tourist hotel. As a conference delegate hotel it probably hits brief perfectly.

This was a grand hotel with large rooms and all the amenities (pyjamas, complimentary water and a large range of toiletries). The only drawback is it is some distance from the City Centre, however, it is set amongst lovely gardens and forest with a good selection of cafes and restaurants 15 minutes walk away. We stayed here for two nights during our 17 day tour of Japan.

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. We were upgraded to a suite and it was huge especially for Japan. The location is quite and not close to the city centre, about 15 minutes in a Taxi. Great place to stay if you want a little bit of piece and quite while staying in Kyoto. Breakfast was good however they had 2 breakfast rooms and one of them did not have any windows for natural sunlight so it was a bit uncomfortable.

Hotel next to the nature and hiking areas. Breakfast is both western and Japanese style, which is very good - you get both at the same hotel. Early morning gives best possibility to eat breakfast in peace.
