Hotel is located in downtown Kyoto, which is great for shopping and dining. A subway station is just 7 minutes by foot, which makes it convenient. There are a number of bus routes stopping nearby. The room (small double room) was just ok for one person who's used to keep her things in order. Not enough space to hang the... More

We stayed in Mitsui Garden Hotel Shijo in November 2013.

Everyone we asked for directions said they did not know it and the plan was... More

We reserved 5 days, but end up leaving the next day! The hotel was clean, the staff was helpful, but we were expecting a 4 star hotel, and this is a maximum 3 star! Price wise, the hotel was way below expectations! Rooms was very very small! Suffocating I would say! Location is ok, but a good 20 min walking... More

We stayed in this hotel (alternating between this hotel and Mitsui Garden Hotel Sanjo) and I must say that this is hotel is extremely thoroughly cleaned hotel - the cleaners every morning spent ages cleaning the rooms and onsen. And the room was like a first encounter every time we came back from our sightseeing trips. Also, we noticed that... More

The location is okay and not too far of a walk to the station. The rooms are small but clean. The staff were extremely helpful especially one woman who kindly checked us in and kindly explained all the facilities available. While we needed help with writing down information for booking our shinkansen tickets, the same lady helped us translate and... More

We requested for 5 extra pillows for a twin and a triple rooms. We requested for 5 extra pillows as there are only 1 single per bed. The night front desk male staff (4 pax) claimed that because we booked the SUPERIOR CLASS room thus, only 4 pillows are allowed. I am very disappointed and surely this is not Japanese'... More

This was our worst hotel in our recent 3 week trip to Japan. We had stayed at the Mitsui Garden in Ginza Tokyo so we had high expectations. Kyoto does command high prices due to its popularity, especially in November and we moved for our last night from the great Royal Park The Kyoto (because they were booked up and... More

Just returned this week from Kyoto, Mitsui Garden Hotel in Shijo was an excellent place to stay. It's about a 10 minute walk from the subway, but that was not a problem at all. The staff were very helpful and courteous. The hotel is very clean, very quiet and our non-smoking room was actually a non-smoking room! I have no... More

Was looking for a cheap, decent hotel in Kyoto for 2 nights and certainly found it here. For $190 AUD per night we had a king sized bed in a standard room which was perfect for what we wanted. The bed was actually bigger than king sized, we've never seen anything like it. I think it was 2 double beds... More
