Close to train station and imperial palace and other area activities

Great location, great services, shuttle available to station and big rooms! Lovely.

The hotel was nice, the shuttle service was prompt, and walkable to many things.

Understated luxury with a Japanese twist. We had a premium room which has separate, small bed and living areas. It seemed newly and nicely decorated and was very clean. It was a pleasure to be in the hotel. The major downside is that all the restaurants offer expensive set menus - no casual dining options - and it's about 10-15 minutes walk to find alternatives.

Very good located. Amazing lobby, very good breakfast. Really Good

Great hotel with excellent service. A bit far from the nightlife but good if you have a car.

One of the best hotels in terms of staff to guests ratio...location does not matter since the shuttle service is convenient in going to major attractions.

From the moment we first approached the front entrance to six days later when we departed the Brighton, our experience was exceptional. Hotel staff were delightful and always welcoming and helpful, going beyond the usual treatment Japanese provide their guests. Should we return to Kyito, we will make sure to once again stay at the Brighton.

Marketed as a 5 star hotel but is not. Staff was not helpful, bags were lost at checkin, front desk agent was aggressive, room service isn’t available for most of the day and there’s no bar on site that allows for taking a drink back to the room. We left an item in the room after checkout and when I called back to ask about the item they said they were too busy to check and hung up. Overall, we had a very poor experience and will not be returning.

Awesome hotel, outstanding service, excellent food, great location!

The hotel is modern and immaculate. The staff is friendly. The restaurants are very nice -- but very expensive. The location is central, but a bit separate away from the main tourist area (but then all of Kyoto is lovely and interesting). The hotel pricing was excellent and thus an excellent value.

Check in was smooth, the hotel pops out at you as you drive up because it is somewhat hidden. Staff is friendly and speak good English. Was offered an upgrade for an additional yen cost and took it, but in hindsight, I think the room was the same as the one I booked, at least size wise. The "memory mattresses" weren't as I imagined, but softer than typical Japanese beds, so I slept well. There are places to eat in the hotel, but its a bit spendy for a family, so we had to drive about 10 minutes to eat dinner. There were plenty of taxis out front of the hotel in the event you don't have a car. The bathroom was amazing, big oversized bathtub, rainfall shower and massage head, lots of amenities in the room as well. Breakfast was an all you can eat buffet and was included with the room. I recommend getting the room rate with breakfast included. It had both western and Japanese dishes and was very good. Check out was at noon, so if you get up early enough, you can walk over to the nearby castle or temples and check them out before checkout. Yes, the hotel isn't central, but it's very nice, and not too out of the way in my opinion. I would certainly stay here again, and recommend to my friends. The staff really treat you well, and are very friendly.

Staffs are very courteous and helpful. Great services.
