Kyoto Stay

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.

Great location- No gym- No safety box

Great location. Close to metro and bus stations. The restaurant does not have a non-smoker section and the elevator area in the lobby get inundated by cigarette smoke which can be annoying. There is no gym in the hotel but the imperial palace nearby has nice jogging paths. Staff very helpful. There are no safety boxes in the room but one can use a box in the lobby. A bit inconvenient but useful nonetheless. A good experience overall

It was my business trip and it was too noisy for me. I would choose a different hotel for my business trip next time.
