My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights with our 2 kids (age 5 and 7) and it was absolutely perfect. Our hotel room was a nice size and easily fit all o4 of us and our luggage. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean and accommodating (full size shower and bath). We ate at...

We stayed here almost as an accident because every hotel we looked at was fully booked due to the cherry blossom season, and it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. All the rooms open up into a huge, bright central atrium where you can look down onto the ground floor cafe, removing the claustrophobic, stale-smelling dark and dingy hallways...

The hotel was very nice. The rooms are big for Japan. The service was excellent. The staff spoke good English. We got help booking restaurants, taxies and transferring our bags to the next hotel. The restaurants in the hotels are very good. However every thing to do with the hotel is just over priced, from the rooms, to the food...

This hotel offers a shuttle service to the nearest train/subway but you still need to spend time and money from there to get to the sights. The shuttle finishes at 9.30pm ! Big night out eh. But even after a big day out you don't want to catch numerous forms of transport or dump miles so you can catch a...

Our room was beautiful and large, beds were comfy and the...

The hotel is walking distance form the Imperial Palace and is in a quiet residencial area. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. The hotel doesn't have a gym though which nowadays is very weird for such an expensive hotel. Overall we had a good time there but we had checked in at 8:30pm and 8:50 someone from reception knocked on...

Outdated 1990s room needing renovation. It looked A LOT better online!!! We booked a family room, and there is barely any space to open the suitcases, forget about closet space. Bathroom VERY outdated, with 1 sink. Noise from the lobby!!! No view from the window except on the parking lot. I would rate it *** AT MOST! We arrived in...

The Kyoto Brighton Hotel is an attractive slightly old fashioned hotel. Its in a quite, slightly unattractive neighbourhood, but the cave like interior construction ( rooms arranged around a central well ) seems to psychologically keep the outside out. It is however pretty near some of kyoto's main sights - principally the gobsmackingly evocative Nijo-jo Castle. Our room was large...

Are visit was at the beginning of the cherry blossom season and I struggled to find something I liked in Kyoto. I settled on the Brighton Hotel and I'm glad I did. It is a big modern hotel just a couple of blocks from the Imperial Palace. We were just coming from a couple of weeks in Vietnam so the...

The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood so if you are looking to be in the middle of the action in town, then look at other options as you are about 10mins from the station via taxi. The hotel is well kept and the staff are very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are...

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighbourhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
