Kyoto Tokyu Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed for 5 nights and would definitely stay there again. A short taxi ride from the station and perfectly located to visit the castle, and downtown Tokyo. The breakfast was very expensive so we ate in the Royal Host opposite. The only negative really is that the walls seemed paper thin so as soon as the guests in the next room put the tv on or started talking you could hear every word. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The best bit of the hotel is the bar which looks out onto an atrium which was just amazing.

We stayed here for 2 nights in a pleasant, good sized room, although the bathroom was, as usual, quite small. On the first night we ate in the hotel's Chinese restaurant and had a first class meal. On the 2nd night we ate in the Japanese restaurant and also enjoyed the food. Location is certainly a bit out of town but this wouldn't prevent me from staying here again.

We stayed here for 5 nights. The location is a little out from the main centre, however there is a fabulous shuttle from the hotel to the station quite regularly. The hotel is quite large catering to large groups which makes breakfast time quite busy. The superior rooms are large but quite dated.

The hotel is well situated from the Kyoto station, shuttle bus running back and forth from hotel to Kyoto station every half an hour is very convenient, the staff is extremely helpful and kind, rooms are designed is very average,breakfast gets extremely crowded and busy , with too many people to accommodate, there is a big morning rush .

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour group. It was the best hotel we stayed at in Japan. The rooms were large (for Japan) and we had a terrific view of the temple next door. The hotel has a shuttle bus service to Kyoto Station which is full of restaurants and shops. The hotel has a terrific garden in the middle of it complete with pond which was relaxing to look at while eating breakfast. There is a bus about 7 minutes walk from the hotel which gets you right into the shopping district of Kyoto.

Stayed for 3 days in this hotel The room is small, but very clean and new. Breakfast, service and infrastructure are very good And a plus - the hotel offers shuttle services at each 30 minutes for Kyoto station (where you can get a train or enjoy the station - very complete with many restaurants, stores)

Nice place but not what I expected. It expensive but even the new refurbished room are claustrophobic for a couples travelling through Japan. No breakfast included. Personally I will not come to this place and Kyoto is quite familiar to me. I am here now and regrets it.

Compared to all the business hotels, this hotel offers a bit more luxury. The rooms have a great size, are clean and all amenities are provided. The location is great as it is 10min away from the main touristic area. The food outlets are great and if you are lucky you will even find hotel stuff speaking english.

One of my favourite hotels from our trip, maybe due to getting a Premium Double (still cheaper than a lesser Tokyo room). The room was spacious for Japan with a very nice bathroom staff where very pleasant and not in your face. The other plus with a Premium room was free access to a small lounge area that serves light breakfast, lunch and evening snacks. Great place to wait for the shuttle to the station. The hotel is right next to several temples, but I'd recommend hiring a bike for seeing the rest of the city as it's nice and flat. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for 4 nights (conference attendance); no air-conditioning in the room during warm & humid week in Kyoto made for a very unpleasant stay - this is totally unacceptable for a "4-star hotel" in a major tourist destination, in my opinion. The standard room was very small (which is common in Japan); the room service (mostly dinner and breakfast) was inconsistent and expensive (again, food is generally expensive in Japan, when compared to North America); the TV had 6 channels, only one in English - CNN with Japanese voice over which is annoying because one cannot really hear the English as it is always "in the background". The hotel is centrally situated ....about a 10-12 min walk to the Kyoto Station and 15 min walk to the Research Park office complex.
