Royal Park is located off of a subway, but if you have a lot of baggage like we did, it's more convenient to just get a taxi (and relatively cheap, too, not like in Tokyo.). The lobby was nice and clean and the hotel room was the same. You had to use your key to turn on the lights/climate control... More

This is a good hotel in a great location. It is right in downtown Kyoto near to shops and restaurants. Rooms are nice if a little small, with large and clean bathrooms. Staff are helpful. The hotel is near the Pontocho restaurants district and Gion night district. Nishiki market is a ten minutes walk. All the attractions are quite far... More

We had an excellent five night stay here. The hotel is in a great location, close to two different subway stations, the Sanjo-dori shopping precinct, the restaurant area of Pontoncho and only a short stroll from Gion. We had fantastic assistance from the lovely lady in concierge (I unfortunately can't remember her name), she helped us on numerous occasions, booking... More

Great hotel, lovely staff and above all excellent location. Within walking distance to shopping and cultural sites. Will definitely stay again! Rooms are large and clean. Excellent bakery downstairs for breakfast.

From the Kyoto train station it is a short 1400 Yen taxi ride to the hotel. You can also go by subway although with heavy luggage that would be quite an ordeal because you have to change subway lines. The hotel is in a very nice location close to Gion and Pontocho in an area with a lot of restaurants... More

We liked this small hotel very much. On checking we were given a sheet of A3 with lots of helpful suggestions and information about the hotel and area in English. We didn't use the laundry room but apparently you don't need to add detergent to your loads, it is added automatically. I've never heard of that before. The room was... More

We loved our stay. Hotel has a chic feel, is modern, has English speaking staff and nice rooms. We even had a very spacious shower, rooms must be recently refurbished because everything seems new. Great location close to the famous restraint district Pontocho and a metro station. Also right next to the hotel is lovely Salvatores pizzeria that has very... More

The Royal Park Hotel Kyoto is a sleek boutique hotel set in the heart of Kyoto's restaurant district. Room views are nondescript: the tops of nearby commercial buildings. But the lobby is tres chic and the staff attempt to create a high-end boutique service atmosphere. The hotel is definitely "corporate boutique," not "charming boutique," but they do a nice job....

Just got home from a 3-night stay at the hotel and trying not to fall asleep before 6 pm. We stayed in 2 adjoining rooms. The rooms are indeed rather small, but most hotel rooms in Japan are very compact. Love the location, close to Sanjo subway station, Nishiki market, Shijo where major department stores such as Daimaru and Takashimaya... More
