Amazing location in Kyoto

As with most hotels (especially in this price range) in Japan, the room was TINY. Also, the bed was more than firm - it was super-hard. Breakfast was good but expensive (about $25 per person - not THAT good). However, this place was very clean, the staff was accommodating, and honestly the location would be hard to beat. Very easily walkable to public transport and major sights, plus plenty of convenient restaurants and shops, and a 5 minute walk from the river. I'd definitely stay here again.

Great experience

I stayed for 4 nights with my wife! I had a business meeting! The location is central, the subway is 1 min walking and there are a lot of restaurants near the hotel! The room was very clean and the stuff was so pleasant!

Great stay

Had a fantastic time at the Kyoto Royal hotel and spa. Very clean and simple rooms and the breakfast buffet was one of the best I have experienced in Asia. Great to fill up on and enjoy a full day of beautiful temples and gardens.

Hotel was very nice and the room had everything I needed. My only complaint is that the hotel doesn't currently have a gym. Otherwise the rooms were very clean and the staff were extremely helpful.
