Spacious room, great location

Two of my daughters and I stayed in a 3-person room for two nights while our sightseeing trip to Kyoto. The beds were comfortable and the room was spacious and clean. There are some sightseeing destinations in a short walk; one of them is Nishi-hongenji, which we visited early in the morning (I highly recommend it). The hotel location was perfect as it is only about 5 min. walk from Kyoto Station which is a bus terminal. Kyoto has extensive bus services and 500-yen daily bus pass will take you just about any major tourist destinations in the city. We appreciated free wifi in the hotel, too. We had a great vacation.

Top notch

I've been to a few top ranking hotels and Rihga Royal definitely tops every one. You don't get plush and silk but the amenities are excellent or better. You will be surprised. Large closet space (difficult in Japan), large room, the best bathroom i've ever seen, clothing maintenance support at its best, and a wonderul reception and service.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

Aeon mall nearby has a lot of useful stuff and if you are into any crafts you'll find there a lot more than you've seen in any crafts store in US or even Europe. And the electronics floor has everything from PC parts to games to iphone etc..

Rihga Royal

located on a busy street close enough to Kyoto station (but not so close as to be an easy walk), the hotel offers Western style size with Japanese cleanliness and attention from the staff.

Good experience

The bed was terribly hard and I didn't sleep well for the two nights I was there. If I were going back, I'd take a foam pad. The rest of the experience was good.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

Get a copy of the hotel's information (name, address, phone no., etc in the native language) to provide taxi or other transportation modes in case you need help in getting back to the hotel.
