Bright, airy and comfortable, the Brighton Hotel Kyoto exudes the same level of tranquility and comfort as the adjacent Imperial Palace. The property features spacious rooms and suites designed for quiet relaxation, a variety of dining options, a friendly, knowledgeable staff, and plentiful amenities. The hotel contains an outdoor swimming pool, salon and flower shop. In addition, the location of the Brighton Hotel Kyoto mere steps away from the Imperial Palace places visitors directly at one of the major tourist attractions in the city and within the bustling cultural center of Kyoto.


The 182 rooms and suites at the Brighton Hotel Kyoto reflect the commitment to quality and comfort espoused by the property. Room decor features light, yet warm tones, with wood furnishings and curved couches designed for the perfect TV-viewing angle. Some rooms feature terraces with stunning views of Kyoto. Rooms also feature down bedding, humidifiers and coffee/tea-makers. Sitting areas contain small desks and tables. High-speed Internet access is available (fees apply).

Property features

With seven restaurants available, the Brighton Hotel Kyoto has a dining option for all tastes. Perhaps the most unique restaurant at the property is Vis-a-Vis, an exclusive French bistro with carefully selected ingredients from organic farms. With just 10 seats available, dining at the restaurant feels as if guests have been invited to an intimate private party.


Rooms at the Brighton Hotel Kyoto also feature an alkaline water system produced by the property, keeping the tap water at a specific pH balance. The hotel claims this mineral-based water is good for the health of guests and helps to nourish the skin while bathing and showering.

Best hotel in Kyoto that I had ever stayed!

Would recommend Tue, Sep 20, 2011
I recently stayed in Brighton for my business trip. I just loved everything about the hotel, not to say how clean and specious the room was (especially for the Japanese standard!), friendliness and helpfulness of the hotel staff was beyond my expectations. The only downsize was that the hotel is far from the downtown area where action happens. There is a hotel shuttle that you can take to the business district, however, and you can find many restaurants there. I will definitely stay there again!

Money saver

Definitely it was a great bargain to book through Orbitz as I was not able to find the rate as good as this elsewhere.
