Great Location

Stayed at Hotel Monterey for two nights during a visit to Kyoto for site seeing. The location was great, only a few minutes walk from the subway. Starbucks is located just across the street if you need your morning fix and many of the centrally located spots to visit in Kyoto are within 15-20 mins walking distance. Rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly, helpful and spoke English well.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Gion district is about a 15 minute walk from the hotel. The side/back streets are full of small eateries. Head there if feeling adventurous.

Ideal Location

In Kyoto on a research trip when I had lots of meetings, the Hotel Monterey's central location proved ideal. Staff and services were great. From the hotel I walked, readily found taxis, and easily used the subway all over the city.

Kyoto vacation

Hotel is well situated, staff was friendly and knowledgable, Room was small, even by Japanese standards. Breakfast buffet is not worth the price, there are many excellent dining choices nearby.

Excellent!

Excellent hotel that we got a great deal on. It's got 4 star hotel qualities which we only paid $104/nt for due to a great deal we found online. The room was very clean and beautifully decorated. The only reason why I rated 4 for the staff was because their English wasn't the best. But they were very nice and helpful, it was just hard for us to communicate. Once we figured everything out though, we were able to easily navigate through Kyoto thanks to their helpful maps and recommendations.

Great for a city break.

The hotel was easy to find (5 mins walk from a tube station) and very central for the downtown area, although about a 20 minute walk to the river/Gion area. We didn't have breakfast in the hotel so I can't comment on that but there was a kettle and fridge in the room. They supplied green tea but coffee would also have been nice! Overall though we were very happy with our stay there, using it as a base for sightseeing in Kyoto.

Great Hotel; Small Room

Extremely clean and comfortable hotel. Also, a great location. However, the rooms are terribly small, especially for kids. Overall, I recommend it.

Shopping tip: Not Applicable

Japan is expensive - very expensive. a lot of shops do not take credit cards so you need a lot of cash. On a beer scale it can cost an average of £8 a pint - be prepared to have a fairly sober stay!!!
