This is my third time here and I still feel the same about this place: amazing service and staff, clean and beautiful hotel!! Love coming here when I’m in Kyoto. The staff always greets you with friendliness and are always very polite from the time you check in to the time you check out. The beds are comfortable, bathroom is clean and efficient, breakfast buffet had variety and delicious. Thank you for always making my trip even better, Solaria staff!

My wife and I had a lovely adventure in Kyoto for 2 days and one night, and the location of the hotel is near a lovely famous river, and in the heart of Downtown Kyoto. It was easy to get to transportation, and located near tons of shopping/amusement/restaurants/cafes/and landmarks. Great service and experience. Living in Japan for awhile, I think this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at.

So very much worth the little extra you will pay over other nearby hotels. Just plain nice to end the day with a large comfortable room. Loved the rain shower and the Toto toilet!

The hotel is very well located, beautiful area, the public bath very good too.

In walking distance to two of the train lines and many restaurants. Great central location for touring the city. Very nice rooms. The breakfast is a beautiful & tasty treat but expensive & more formal then we preferred for everyday use; very glad we enjoyed it for one of our mornings though. We would return to stay when next in town.

Great staffs, nice, clean, new but the room is on the small size.

Great hotel in a good location. Close to transit and walking distance to the Geisha Gion district. Much bigger than our hotel in Tokyo!

Perfect location. Near train stations and restaurants. Relaxing stay. Not crowded area.

Beautiful river view room, service was great. They have a beautiful Onsen in the basement + a washing machine which hotels never have. I certainly stay there again. Highly recommended. Didn't try the restaurant but it's well located with plenty nearby.

i stayed here with one other adult and baby. Very nice accommodations in a comfortable room. They even provided a crib for the baby! The only slightly bothersome thing was that the couch was very comfortable. Otherwise it was an amazing stay. We would definitely stay here again if we go back.

This hotel is truly amazing, request a room that faces the solarium. Beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, and great amenities.

Great hotel close to Sanjo and Gion area. Neat and clean hotel with helpful staff.

Acceuil incroyable par toute l'équipe mais en particulier par Alex (qui parle Espagnol, Français,Anglais et Japonnais) et qui nous a mis complètement à l'aise avec une convivialité et un talent de communiquateur hors du commun. Séjour d'une semaine ,chambre tranquille propre, très comfortable et litérallement à deux pas de centaines! de restaurants de tous genres. MERVEILLEUX!! Merci
