Kyoto Tower Hotel Annex

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The room is very very small, there is almost no space for our suitcases. And in the morning we can hear the cleaning staffs talking outside in long time. When we entered the room, I checked whether the bed sheet were new, it was not. with Long hairs from other guests WHO stayed before us. The breakfast was ok, but not exciting.

The hotel is well presented and very convenient. It is close to Kyoto station - a few blocks, close to Kyoto Tower, restaurants, etc. It is about 100 metres from a Lawsons convenient store. The hotel has a bunch of bathroom amenities that guests can take as required. The room is comfortable yet small. Breakfast is a little expensive for what it available. Having 24 hr washing machines and dryers available for guests was great for us and saved a great deal on getting this done elsewhere. I could do it whilst my daughter slept upstairs.

Just a short walk from Kyoto station this hotel offers comfortable western style rooms with good facilities. The staff are friendly and helpful and they speak reasonable English. Nearby restaurants and convenience stores offer a variety of eating options, and A buffet breakfast was included in the price.

Staff speaks very good english so communication is never a problem. Staff very welcoming and truly epitomes the Japanese hospitality. Kyoto tower train station and the tower itself is around 8 minutes walking distance. A mall is about 2 blocks away. Fushimi Inari-taisha is a few train stops away. A Lawson Convenience store is a few steps away, vending machines right infront of the entrance. Foosball and chess are free for use in the lobby. Complimentary refreshments a nice touch. Bathroom amenities and pillows are by the front desk and guests free to get whatever they need.

My boyfriend and I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in Nov 2017. Hotel really close to the main train station. Easy to find and modern feel. Rooms slightly larger than in Tokyo and expected for Japan. Location good and easy to get around from here. Not near that many places to eat and hotel restaurant only at lunchtime. Bar closes early if wanting a drink at end of night 9.30pm. Overall I’d highly recommend staying here if in Kyoto and this room was perfect for us. When sight seeing room is hardly used and this was perfect.

We were in Kyoto 6 nights and had to move to the Annex for New Years Eve. When we checked in we wished we were there for our entire stay. The beds were very comfortable and you can get assorted special pillows from the front desk. They had about 10 different pillows types available. There was coin laundry on the main floor. Easy walk to train station. They have a nice assortment of personal room amenities available for free. Breakfast was great. There is a small grocery store just across the street. We found the hotel very quite. They also had recycling stations on every floor. I do recommend this hotel.

just 5 minute walk to kyoto station. we stay 3 nigths. there is supermarket across hotel. free breakfast - japanese and international food with nice service.there is also small resturant walk north and turn left 100 m.fromhotel.

Great location next to Kyoto station. Very clean rooms, good service, nice breakfast and a reasonable price. If you are flying in to Osaka Kansai airport, the Naruka train takes you to the Kyoto station. The hotel is 5 minutes walk. Rooms are small but comfortable. Bathroom is very nice and modern.

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights because it became our home base to the places we visited last 19th of October 2017. It is located at the back of Kyoto Station if you are getting out from the Shinkansen platforms. The landmarks to look for the exit from the station are the Isetan Store & Porta Underground Shopping Mall. It has taken us 15-20 minutes of walking with our luggage from the station. The hotel is in the middle of a convenient store and a grocery. This hotel is being cleaned everyday and lots of freebies to take for room amenities. We stayed in a double room and it is reasonably good for 2 people to stay in. You get fresh and newly ironed night shirts each day. Eating places are all over the place. The staff are friendly and they have a coin laundry service on the ground floor. They have a safety box installed in the rooms we stayed in which is good. We did not have breakfast in the hotel. However, it would be good if they install exhaust fans in their bath rooms to clear out the dampness or moisture after each shower or bath. It would be good if they think of getting small golf cart-like for transport of their clients going to-and-fro Kyoto Station. This will help those older ones who are travelling specially on rainy days.

Hotel is just located near Kyoto Station, just 5 minutes walk. Room is small, as always in Japan, but comfortable to fit 2 guests in the room. Overall stay has been good and will cone back here again in future.
