Okura is a nice hotel at a great location. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The room was nice, very clean n comfortable. The only improvement I can think of is for the hotel to provide some USB sockets to charge mobile phones...More
We requested a high floor and got one, so had a lovely view and a lovely room. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly. We walked almost everywhere - to Nichiki market, to Gion etc.

Our tour organizer put us into the Kyoto Hotel Okura. There are many positive things to be said about the hotel, but I would not recommend anyone from the West stay here unless they get a bargain. Here's what's great, and what's not.

No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
