Kyoto Tokyu Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Picked up the shuttle from the station and was checked in quickly and efficiently. Had joined to comfort hotel rewards programme and was upgraded to a newly refurbished room which was so immaculate and well equipped I wasn't sure if anyone had stayed in it before! All the hotel staff were lovely. Previous reviews have complained that the hotel is out of the way- this really isn't the case. It was a 15 min walk to the central station (use the shuttle bus if you really don't want to walk..). 10 mins to a subway station (easier to just go to the main one). We walked to Gion district and wandered back through the lovely back streets, finding ourselves a fabulous restaurant (see separate review!). The hotel is 10 mins from an amazing temple, and so the location for us was perfect- allowed us to really explore Kyoto which we loved- you just have to walk to see the best bits!! Only complaint as such would be that the drink/food prices where very expensive- £7 for a small draft beer in happy hour meant that we spent our money outside the hotel not in it!! Would happily stay here again

This hotel was comfortable spacious and reasonably well positioned to access the main sites and transport links in Kyoto, however it was very dated and in need of a serious refurbishment. The bathrooms were extremely basic.

We had a lovely stay at Kyoto Tokyu hotel. We arrived at the Kyoto train station and there was a complimentary hotel shuttle just outside. The hotel is about 10 min drive away. Check in was quick and the lady gave us the city map. Rooms were amazing and we had an access to the privilege lounge. Ample toiletries were refilled everyday. Breakfast was superb. Everything about this hotel is awesome. If I visit Kyoto again, I will definitely stay here.,

The Kyoto Tokyu hotel is very well located and offers a free shuttle to Kyoto station throughout the day. The decoration of the hotel, mainly the lobby and the interior garden is beautiful. The rooms are comfortably sized, the bathroom amenities are particularly good when compared with other hotels. Breakfast is very good, and offered at two different restaurant inside the hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful!

First impression was not really great: we had an old room, check-in process was slow and boring. Then we asked for a better room and got a marvellous new junior suite. We payed an surcharge but it was worth the money. Brand new equipment and a nice view. Breakfast is wonderful - particularly the choice of fruits is fascinating. The shuttle service to Kyoto station is very helpful. Extremely helpful is the team at the concierge-desk. All of them are ambitious and their English is perfect. A weakness is the location of the hotel. The metro station is too far away and the last shuttle is at around 6pm. We recommend that hotel.

amazing beautiful yet small rooms. Modern Japanese interior, and I really loved the bathing amenities its on a good location near good temples, the room was little small for a family, although it was comfortable. The hotel shuttle is very useful for pick and drop from station in case you want to travel around and reach station which is otherwise far. Interior of hotel is great with great restaurants. On first night of our stay we could not move out for dinner and we were too late to even eat in hotel restaurants. Chef was kind enough to not only prepare dinner late at night almost closing time, but also cater our vegetarian request, with an exceptional vegetarian all vegetable tomato pasta. Amazing service.

Nice hotel design with traditional and modern touch at the looby and the rooms.Breakfast was delicious ,various options of food.Rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable.Not too much outside restaurant options for the supper, but hotels location is near to Kawaramachi district.

After Tokyo, as value for $$, this place was disappointing. Functional, clean, shuttle to Kyoto center, service, etc all worked well - it is just that we did not elevate to the level of experience we had elsewhere.

The room I stayed in was great, the view from the window was of a car park, and that was the only disappointment. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bathroom, albeit on the small side was still very adequate and is well stocked with soaps, shampoo etc. but also included disposable razors and toothbrushes. The room access key is required to gain access from the lift foyer to the corridor on the floor where your room is located. Breakfast was comprehensive, catering to a wide variety of tastes.

Check in good and fast staff friendly polite and very helpfull .Or first room had a strong smell of smoke straight back to reception complained about the smoke smell in the non smoking room they gave us no ifs no buts the room was changed. The only gripe i had with this hotel is smoking-non smoking rooms on the same floor and next to each other,smoke smell in the hallways .The room was very good ,breakfast again was limited western style again no baked beans i need baked beans ha-ha,water is safe to drink from the tap tea coffee and safe in the room plenty hot water and good shower .Across the road from the hotel is the Royal Host restaurant it is very good and reasonably priced. The staff here are all polite and helpfull .Free shuttle bus to Kyoto station take heed when it says it leaves at 0905 am it does not before and not after right time.
