Very pleasant stay

Very good location for this hotel. Subway station next door and lots of eating / nightlife options around. Large size room which was a change from the other hotels I've stayed in Japan. Would definitely recommend.

This hotel was nice and clean with a very helpful staff. The restaurant is very overpriced and very western. I wish I had used a stairmaster daily for 2 weeks before Kyoto, esp. to visit monkeys.

Great location, but not a 4 star hotel - unless you're on the 10th floor

I booked this because it seemed a good price for a 4 star hotel. My room was terrible - dirty, broken and chipped furniture, cigarette smoke smell from the air conditioning. I complained to the manager and got moved to a room on the 10th floor, which was much, much better and more along the lines of what I'd consider to be 4 star. Still had the smell of smoke from the air conditioning though.

The rooms were cleanand they had a very nice amenities they even have bicycles to rent though you are so close to everything you don't necessarily need it I would definitely stay here again if I'm in Kyoto

Kyoto Royal Hotel and Spa

This is the 4th time staying in this hotel. It is located centrally in the main shopping area of Kyoto. It is close to the restaurants and shopping on Kiyamachi and Kawaramachi streets. It is located right below Kamogawa (river) and along Takasegawa (river). The Pontocho is a 5 minute walk. You can rent bikes for 1000¥/day and take a 15 minute ride to Gion and Kyomizu Dera. The staffs English is not very good, so if your looking for concierge assistance, it is not very good. But with a good map you can find your way. It is also 1 minute from the subway line, and a 10 minute taxi ride to/from Kyoto station.

weekend trip

This hotel is in a perfect location. Just down the street in any direction you walk is everything you need. I went to the Golden Temple 1 of the days and it was a pretty cheap cab ride back and forth. In between the hotel and the ride there were plenty of other tourist attractions ie: temple's and castle's. Was very happy with my stay and can't wait to go again.

Quick stay

The location was great! Hotel staff was very friendly and spoke some English. My only complaint would be the mattress and pillows were extra firm, which is not my preference. Overall my staff was enjoyable.

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.

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!
