“AMAZING BEST HOTEL IN JAPAN”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

This hotel is amazing. I dont have 1 bad word to say about this hotel. Its is extremely clean and alot of room i booked the standard studio but was able to upgrade at the hotel for an extra £10 for a balcony and a much bigger room. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

This hotel is the best hotel in Kyoto and the best hotel in my two week stay in Japan.

Stay at this hotel it was amazing.......

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

We stayed four nights. It was more like serviced apartment than a hotel as it lacked facilities like gym and pool. The room was of good size with a partition between the bed and the sitting/sofa area. There was a kitchenette. An LCD TV was mounted on the wall facing the sofa. The quilt were a bit too warm and we needed to adjust the air-con to the lowest possible temperature in order not to be awaken sweating in the middle of night.

The room was cleaned daily. They had L'Occitane bath shower gel and body lotion!

The front desk was helpful and some of them spoke good English. They managed to help me phone a Sake brewhouse in Fushimi to arrange for a guided tour. The path at the entrance to the lobby was laid with stonebricks which were not kind on wheeled luggage. That was awkward.

The breakfast was extra at 735 yen per person, which IMO was of poor value. It's much better to eat at neighbouring noodle shops - there were 2 or 3 to choose from. We sometimes went to Ramen shops in JR Station building 10/F as well.

Very convenient to catch a bus for major sightseeing as the bus stop is round the corner. But it's 1km to JR or pvt rail stations for arrival and departure.

Overall a good base for exploring Tokyo.

An excellent hotel. The room was very comfortable and during winter, was well-heated. Kitchen was small but enough for a couple to have romantic dinners every night. Its great to buy the amazing array of food from the food centers at the basement of Isetan, Takashimaya or Daimaru. One night, we even cooked crab in the kitchen and had our version of a kaiseiki dinner, all in the comfort of our hotel room.

The people at Citadines are very helpful. Good that they speak good English, and recommended a nearby bicycle shop so that we could rent for a day and ride out to Arashiyama and other sites on the way. Will stay here when I return to Kyoto.

This is a very clean, modern, friendly, and comfortable place to stay in Kyoto.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, the service is great, the location is really good. it's a 15 minute walk to Kyoto railway station, and we walked to and from the station every time.

The only issue is that even though they have free internet access, Wifi is only in the lobby area which is very small and dark, and is therefore not comfortable to do what you need on the internet.

Would definitely stay there again though.

Just one metro stop from Kyoto railway station,the citadines is located in gojo. I loved the decor of the citadines. With very zen feeling walkway leading to the front desk. The apartment has basics cooking facilities, so it allow us to buy those beautiful ingredients from kisicho market and cooked our meals... There are 2 24- hour noodle houses next to the hotel, and a 7/11 right opposite.

Location wise it is convenient for our visiting all the Kyoto sites.

There is a laundry room in the basement.

Room Tip: Take their room upgrade offer if you are offered.
