I spent three nights at the Court Hotel. It is in a convenient location about two blocks from Shijo Station, and an easy walk to downtown Kyoto, Nishiki Market and Gion. As a bit of an older building (they use an old-fashioned physical key system, and the guest needs to turn in the room key every time you leave the hotel),the rooms are quite spacious for a Japanese hotel. Despite the size of the room, there is no closet or storage space. The bed is comfortable and they provide nice, Western style pillows (as opposed to the hard flat pillows in some Japanese hotels). Very friendly staff. They also provide robes and slippers, toiletries (no body lotion), kettle and fridge.Only green tea is provided (no coffee or bottled water). While strong, the wifi is not very secure, as no password is required, in either the room or the lobby. Overall, I was very happy considering the price point, which is quite low for a major city.…
The hotel is located in a quite secluded section of Kyoto city. From the train station to the hotel, it will be a 30 minutes walk. However, there are a number of subway stations nearby which will require 5-10 minutes of walk. The hotel does not allow early check-in, therefore you may need to store your luggage with their reception. We requested a late checkout but was denied because the hotel is fully booked. The downside as most of the hotels in Japan is the language barrier. The staff only understands basic English. We had a number of misunderstandings especially with regards to the baggage postal services and some inquiry missing items in the room. The staff tried their best but sometimes it can be frustrating at times as it can cause you unnecessary stress during your vacation. Is it value for money, yes, considering it is close to the convenince store and located in the city center.…
We stayed here 4 nights. The breakfast was average with not much choice for western tastes but then that I guess is part of the adventure. Gion is about 30 minutes walk and certainly worth it. The staff at the hotel were very helpful with minimal understanding of English but will do their best to help you. The green tea in the hotel room is very good.
We stayed here in 2011, great location, staff great but hotel starting to get tired. We stayed for 6 nights in early May.No complaints about the cleanliness, our rooms and bathroom were spotless. As part of our stay was during Golden Week the first couple of nights price was very high but then dropped down to what was very reasonable. Would recommend but do not expect 4*, basic and comfortable with great access to public transport etc.
while location was very good the hotel itself was far from good. Room was very small (smaller than other hotels we stayed) but the bathroom was extremely small ( only about 4.5 feet square) it was actually smaller than hat you get on a cruise ship,was not worth what we paid. Staff were very helpful when we had to leave to return home unexpectantly
We stayed at the Court Hotel Shijo Central for 3 nights. The hotel is located on the side street if the busy Shijo shopping and restaurant area, near the famous Nishiki shopping and eating arcade and Pontocho food alley, and is easily acessible by subway or buses from Kyoto station. The hotel looks nice from outside. However, for the price, the rooms are small and furnishing is old. The beds are soft and very uncomfortable. It would otherwise be a convenient place to stay.
Old and worn out hotel, the place seemed clean but was lacking! We stayed over a busy weekend in Kyoto so the rates were higher than they should reasonably charge for this place. The bed was so old that it sunk to the floor when you sat in it. The make up mirror had a task light to use with it... the room was so tight that you could hardly walk around, and the staff was not so friendly. The bathroom was very clean, but it’s tiny- like inside a small RV, notice the step up into it in the photo! No storage space for anything!! I am sad this was our lodging for Kyoto weekend, if I had booked earlier in the week, I would have found a lovely spot for the price that they gouged us with! Breakfast is not included.
Very low grade. Such a poor place that light in the room is not sufficient, I had to use mobile light sometime. Dust, lose and noisy bed, no water glass even. Hotel staff is rude and do not accommodate ur basic needs. Ask for extra pillow and hotel denied for it. Never recommended!!
I stayed at the Court Hotel Kyoto Shijo for 4 nights recently while visiting Kyoto. I really loved how centrally located the hotel was for the sites and places I wanted to visit while there. My friend and I got into Kyoto at around 10:30pm and we were concerned that the lobby would already be closed but calling ahead, we were told the lobby was open 24 hours. When we checked in, they didn't have any more non-smoking rooms (which we reserved) so we were very disappointed with that. The good thing was when we got to our room, the smoke smell wasn't too strong and the next day when housekeeping cleaned, the smell was virtually gone. Thinking about it now, I don't actually believe they have any non-smoking rooms available or like maybe just 1 for the whole hotel! I found the room to be adequate for the price point paid and got all the amenities one would expect to find in any hotel. However, if you want coffee, you need to get it from the lobby as they only provide tea in the rooms. As many have said in previous reviews, the location of the hotel is awesome. Walking 20-30 mins in either direction can get you to at least one tourist attraction. There are a number of good, decently priced, restaurants very near by as well.…
Very ideally located close to the bus stop and city center. There's a familymart branch right across the hotel, and a grocery that's open 24 hours located across Family Mart on the other side of the main road. Meals are 30% off at night in the grocery store btw. The bus station is literally a few steps away. The city center with the malls, nishiki market, restaurants, is 1.5 km away. We walked from here back to our hotel a few times. Gion, Ninenzaka, even Arashiyama is one bus ride away. But they need to improve on their service. Reception didn't speak much english. Which was kind of difficult since we stayed 6 days and couldn't figure out how to ask for stuff. We stayed 6 days and while the cleaning was okay most of the days, there was one day I knew the cleanig person didn't change our sheets. My kid peed on the sheets the night before and I was expecting room service to replace the sheets. But when we got back after going around Kyoto the sheets still smelled of my daughter's pee, it's the same sheets! Did't bother calling staff because it was late. Made me wonder if they didn't change the sheets the other days too lol or what kind of cleaning they do to the toilet. They have nice bath products though!…
