Grand Prince Hotel Kyoto

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel conveniently located for the convention center. Not ideal for tourism in Kyoto but it takes 20' by taxi or about 40 by public transport (easy and efficient). Good choice of restaurants where the service is a little slow and not all staff are completely familiar with the English. Kindness at the expect Japanese level: impeccable. Rooms large, very comfortable, equipped with everything, power socket both at bedside and at the desk. USB also at bedside. Super comfortable bed and bathroom. Change of pyjama every day, clean, fragrant and ironed. Ideal staying for intense meeting activities and little time to rest and relax.

Stayed at this hotel in January 2018 during a business trip to Kyoto. the rooms are nice and quiet and some of them are going through renovations right now so it might be noisy during the day. well connected to metro line so it is super easy to get to the Kyoto station

日本語の口コミの後、英語の口コミもあります。 English review follows Japanese. 国際交流会館の隣にあるグランドプリンス京都ホテルは、京都の中心にはありませんが、隣接するカンファレンスセンターに会議がない場合は、冬には価格がかなり安くなることがあります。これらは優れた価値であり、12月または1月に頻繁に現れます。 サービスは良いですが、日本に住む外国人がパスポートを提示する必要がないというルールを思い出す必要がありました。顔の外観に基づいてパスポートを求めるのは良いことではありません。私はこの時点までに日本語のみを話しました。ホテルはホテル登録用紙に記載されている住所を確認して受け入れなければなりません。 他の点では、良いサービス、良い立地、きれいに整えられた快適な客室があり、京都JR駅からわずか20分、烏丸御池駅からは15分です。ホテルは視覚的に魅力的で、素敵な敷地を持っています。私は通常、冬には年に一度ここにいます。素敵ないくつかの部屋から遠くの丘には雪が見えます。 近くの地下鉄駅にはコンビニエンスストアもあります。地下鉄駅からの通路が22:00または22:30に閉まることに注意してください。出口4-2はホテルのすぐ近くにありますが、他の出口は非常に遠く、夜遅くにホテルを見つけるのが難しい場合があります。 京都観光の場合、烏丸御池への片道は290円(往復580円)です。 1日のパスはわずか600円です。 Grand Prince Kyoto Hotel is next to Kokusaikaikan station. Although it's not in the centre of Kyoto, they have prices in the winter that are significantly cheaper sometimes, if there are no conferences at the adjacent conference center. These are excellent value and often appear in December or January. Service is good but they needed to be reminded of the rule that non-Japanese living in Japan don't need to show passports. It's not good to ask for passports based on facial appearance. I spoke only Japanese up to this point, and the hotel should check and accept the address given on the hotel registration form. In other respects they have good service, a good location, large, nicely furnished and comfortable rooms, and are only 20 minutes from Kyoto JR station or 15 minutes from Karasumaoike station. The hotel is visually appealing and has nice grounds. I usually stay here once a year in the winter. Snow can be seen on the hills in the distance from some rooms which is nice. Also there's a convenience store at the nearby metro station. Be careful that the passageway from the metro station closes at maybe 22:00 or 22:30. Exit 4-2 is very near the hotel, but the other exit is much further and finding the hotel may be difficult late at night. For sightseeing in Kyoto, a 1-way trip to Karasumaoike is 290 yen (round-trip 580 yen). A 1-day pass is only 600 yen.

This was my second visit to this hotel. The rooms are large and comfortable and because of the location many miles north of the heart of town, the area is very quiet. It is a great place to host a conference given its large banquet facilities, excellent kitchen, and proximity to the conference center. It is possible to take a subway to and from downtown (10 minute walk to the station + 20 minute ride on the train). A taxi will cost between $25 and $30 depending on traffic to get downtown, plus a little more if going to the main train station. As mentioned in other reviews, this hotel is now aging with stains in carpet and watermarks on tables, at least in my room. This is probably not the ideal hotel to stay at if your main reason for visiting is tourism.

This hotel was probably a nice hotel at one time but the location is remote and the rooms are tired. A large facility setup for business meetings or conventions. For a tourist the location is bad and requires taxi transportation to all the main shopping and food areas. You can’t step outside and find a restaurant or shopping area. The hotel could use a major room remodel. It’s clean but dated. However the old bar is great.

It is the peaceful of the place. Have surroundings of valley, cool, and private. I like the design of the hotel because the every room can see the nice view of the garden, just you open the door. In the room you can choose bathtub or shower for relax and soak in the warm water as long as you satisfy.

The rooms are well thought out, large and very comfortablee. You could spend a big part of the day happily indoors without feeling restless. Every room faces greenery which is very tranquil. I love the beautiful nearby park with a 1.8km walk around a lake best of all. There is a subway station 10 minutes' walk away as well as a bus station. Unfortunately, there's hardly any alternative restaurants and food places nearby apart from the hotel food.

We were on a bus tour so this was an adequate! It is not in the centre of Kyoto so just be aware but there is a station not too far away. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and they served a decent breakfast, lots of different choices both Asian and Western. There is an egg cooking station where you can get fried eggs or an omelette and there were bacon, sausages as well. We did enjoy our stay here but because we were on a bus tour we did not need to be close to anything. If travelling alone I would stay closer into the city itself.

This place is located in a beatiful setting. Although far from Kyoto central area, it us accesible via subway. The place is cleand and well kept, with a first class service. The atmosphere however is business-like and I dont think is a nice place to stay for other puposes

This hotel is just adjacent to the Kyoto conference center in the northern part of the city. Plus is the location (if you are attending a congress) but the minuses dominate. The carpets have a strange smell, the view is not particularly stimulating, and the place is a bit off from the city. Internet is uneven. The Western style breakfast restaurant is no hit, whereas the Japanese breakfast part is a better choice. But I would rather chose a more centrally located hotel than this one, and use the subway which goes all the way out to the conference center.
