Totally 2-night to stay, the first check in night had already their reputation ruined! Room was not 100% cleaned after the further guests checked out. We could still smell the vomiting full of the whole room! Front desk send the only English speaking lady to come. Tried to communicate for 30mins, end up with the manager came to prove that... More

This hotel may be a little out of the way for some but easy to get to with the regular metro system. Hotel is surrounded by woodland and has great views. We got lucky by being upgraded to a suite (which was enormous) and the buffet breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommend.

Great hotel. Had a problem with the toilet (got flooded twice in 2 days...) but both times it was fixed without me having to call anyone. Good and lovely service, enormous rooms with good air conditioning and also very quiet. They speak english well. Far from bus or metro but great for business people who are looking for a great...

The rooms are spacious, clean and provided with all amenities. The bed was the most comfortable I ever slept on. The Hotel is surrounded by a beautiful park. The hotel staff at the reception and breakfast restaurant is impolite, unavailable and makes the whole experience unbearable. No one speaks a word of English (while they do advertise so on the...

The hotel was very close to train station. Very clean and great service, the staff is very helpful and can speak English well. The buffet at restaurant was pricey, but the food was tasty and good quality.

A lovely property set among woods and gardens. It is next to a big convention centre and unless you stay here to attend a conference, it is not suitable for tourists as it is quite far away from the city and does not have easy access to bus, rails etc. The room we had was big and spacious and the...

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

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.
