Stayed here for a conference which was organized on the hotel's premises. The room was large enough and comfortably furnished. I was pleasantly surprised by many small but convenient amenities, including a free supply of green tea. Perfectly working and quet AC provided a welcome relief in these hot and extremely humid days. Check-in was quick and hassle-free. The hotel... More

A remarkable place nestled in the forest Hills North of the center of Kyoto. More Switzerland than Japan next to the International Conference Center and 200 meters from the metro station that connects to the Kyoto station for the bullet train to Tokyo. Temperatures are cooler here and a great walking place with large parks. Hotel is very well managed... More

I spent 7 nights at this hotel at a recent trip to Kyoto. At first, I was skeptical to the hotel's location. It is located right next to the international conference center, but quite far from the center of Kyoto. However, after just 24 hours, I realized that it was perfect for me in every respect. First, it is extremely... More

I found a really good deal on this hotel and decided to stop by on the way back to Tokyo. It is somewhat trite for Japan, but the service was excellent... Would you expect less? The weather wasn't the greatest and it is a bit away from the main attractions, but it definitely has that quiet and elegant Kyoto feel.... More

Even though this wasn't in central Kyoto it was really accessible - a few minutes by subway to the centre of Kyoto. The place itself is in an area really peaceful, by a huge park and great views of the surrounding mountains. The rooms were giant, really we had a suite not a room. The staff were very friendly and... More

Stayed Here for 3 nights on a recent Sakura season trip to Kyoto with family. Two rooms located together but not interconnected. The hotel is located out of the town centre by about 20 mins via subway then a 500m walk. The design is hollow circular with a nice garden in the centre. The rooms were good, spacious and comfortable... More

It present us happy time in Kyoto. It take 20 minute from Kyoto Station by subway without change. We payed just 90 US$ including breakfast a night,room charge is so reasonable. We can easily visit for North Kyoto,Takao(Kosanji-temple),Kurama-temple & Kibune shrine. I recommend you to visit North Kyoto, especially autumn.

Room was large (for Japan) and the service was amazing. Great natural scenery around the hotel. Transport isn't that big a deal - sure it's outside the CBD, but there's a checkin desk at Kyoto Station, and the hotel is right on the subway line, so it's only half an hour to the CBD. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This hotel even though is far from the city centre, it is worth staying there because of it tranquil location. There is an outdoor garden that is decked out for weddings. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable.

Staying in Northern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Northern Kyoto
Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.
