Good place to stay in Kyoto

We enjoyed the Hearton Hotel. It had a beautiful lobby and the room was nice, similar to other Western-style hotels I stayed in around Japan. Easy to access by subway Karasuma line. and Karasuma-Oike station. Our only down-side was that there weren't a lot of places to eat nearby, though there is one good one across the main street.

convenient location, a little small

We came from Hilton Osaka Hotel, so the first impression of the room was that it was small. But for the price we pay, it's expected and reasonable. Stay was comfortable, staff helpful, location close to subway station, walking distance to shopping and food. Got to see the city, river, temples, parks of Kyoto. Overall, a good experience in Kyoto.

Great for a Tourist Stay

The location of the hotel was great! less tha a block from the subway station and a couple of blocks away from great places like the Kyoto Imperial Palace. From this place it´s easy to reach some other great sightseeings. The staff was friendly and helpfull, the amenities are ok, there is a coin laundry in the non pair floors, and some vending machines for that late night snack!

Great location, (relatively) large twin

Convenient location close to subway and bus routes. Several blocks from Starbucks. Friendly staff. Free internet, but they said they would be charging soon. TV had English option for BBC and CNN. All in all a good choice!

Don't miss the geiko/maiko dance shows if they are on during your visit. We saw the Miyako Odori.

Great Location (hard to find at first)

Just one block from subway, shopping, etc. Hotel staff recommended Gion Corner, we loved it, the tea ceremony, the geishas, the actors/dancers, ikebana, etc.!!! A must-see! Himeiji castle was worth the train ride (we had a train pass good for unlimited travel for a week, what a savings!) We did 3 temples including the Golden Pagoda via train or subway or bus, so easy! When it rained the hotel gave us umbrellas! Bicycles could also be had. Room had only a double bed and the closet was tiny; we loved Kyoto anyway!

Hearton Hotel Kyoto

I attended a conference held at Kyoto International Conference Center. This location was much more convenient and better than the hotels designated by the conference. It was within a couple of minutes from the subway. Dinner and breakfast were excellent, and well worth the price. Room was clean, and internet access included. Lack of an English channel on TV was the only problem (I found this to be the case at many other hotels as well)

Very comfortable and convenient

Our twin room was very comfortable, with a great shower, good toiletries, and a convenient coin op washer and dryer (7th floor). The western style buffet breakfast tends to be crowded with tour groups... Try the Japanese style breakfast instead. Lots to do in the neighborhood within walking distance, and a subway stop close by. The staff were attentive and pleasant. The Hearton caters to large tour groups, but worked well for us.

Good business hotel

Gets the basic right. Unfussy, easy to find, good hotel without being spectacular. There is no "business centre" as claimed - just three very old (slow) computers outside the breakfast area on floor 2 that don't have English-language programs (plus at least three staff don't know how to use these computers or guide you about converting into English, all the while,when your money is wing spent on the pay-as-you-go computer!).

Convenient, clean & affordable

This hotel is located just a few minutes walk from the Kyoto subway. Staff were very friendly and helpful, although spoke poor English. Rooms are clean but small. On-site breakfast buffet was convenient and high quality. This hotel provides bicycles for guests free of charge.
