Great hotel

Great location and accessible to the major shopping areas. The room was clean and free from any smoke odor. Even though it is centrally located the hotel is well insulated from the street noise. If I come back to Kyoto this will be my first choice of accommodation.

Kyoto Royal on Kawaramachi St.

Very nice, easy stay; overall a good value hotel. Positives: Rooms are small but comfortable. There are a few basic amenities in the rooms - hot water pot & tea bags and a small refrigerator (no mini-bar, but good for storing your own snacks). The bath is nice with a typically deep Japanese basin and good water pressure from the shower. The room includes a LAN cable, wi-fi, and a desk, so it's possible to do work comfortably, if needed. Note: In-room wi-fi is not always available in Japanese hotels, so this is a very nice convenience. Also, the location is convenient, especially if you are up for figuring out the public bus and subway system. If not, within walking distance are tons of shops - from touristy & specialty shops on Teramachi street, to higher end stores, like Takashimaya. There is also a river nearby lined with restaurants with lots of options for a relaxing dinner experience. Negatives: Make sure to request a non-smoking floor. Also, even though we did, we could still smell smoke at times. The staff is not fully bilingual (English), which is typical in Japan, so speak slowly and be patient. The rooms are compact, but perfect if you are planning to be out most of the day. Other general comments: There is a bar and spa services at the hotel, which looked nice, but I did not get a chance to go to either. There is no pool or exercise room. I went to breakfast once, and it was fine. The restaurant has a breakfast and lunch buffet, which I did not try. Room service does not offer many choices.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Within walking distance to the hotel are two train stations, and the bus stops are on the same block. If you want to save on transportation costs, I recommend trying the bus system. Maps are in the hotel and the staff can provide instructions on how to use the bus. However, do your best to make sure you understand where you are going in advance; don't try to figure it out along the way. If you don't speak Japanese, you may end up getting frustrated. Day bus passes can be purchased from the hotel for 500 yen or from the bus driver directly. Each bus ride is 200yen, so if you are planning to take the bus 3 times in one day, then the pass will be worth it. From Kyoto Royal, I went to Kinkaku-ji, then to Roanji, then back to the hotel in one afternoon with the same bus pass. Also, if you need help leaving Kyoto, there is a travel agent across the street from the hotel that can help you book trips to other cities if needed.
