We enjoyed our stay at Kyoto tokyu hotel. From the moment we hopped on the free shuttle bus service from Kyoto station (runs every 15-30minutes) we experienced friendly helpful and respectful staff. While the exterior of the building is outdated, do not let this fool you as the inside boasts a modern Japanese fusion interior. The room was nice and... More

Although another hotel in the Tokyu chain, this one is superior.Its location is central,rooms are large, its atmosphere is brisk, and its staff efficient. The most attractive feature of the hotel is the use of water. Its lobby level water body can be viewed from the plate glass walls. The water is then moved over into pools at several different...

Having left booking quite late we were pleased to find availability at The Kyoto Tokyu. Our pre-requisite was an onsite gym and, on arrival saw this was in fact a pitiful collection of small weights. We were further outraged to find that our suite at over £620 (!) per night did NOT include breakfast. The rooms are poorly decorated, in... More

The location of this hotel is not that good, luckily hotel does provide shuttle service in like every 15 mins from Kyoto station to hotel, which makes travel more easier. Traditional style, good room size, nice service, clean, good value of money.

The hotel is very close to the Kyoto station. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The rooms have a certain standard and are large. The room has a large wall TV and small refrigerator. The bathroom was full of luxurious products. The beds are comfortable. The breakfast was good. There is a temple right next to the Kyoto Tokyo... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Our room was spacious and elegant. Our only criticism is the strange bathroom door design which has a small gap which we plugged with a towel (too weird otherwise). We also found the bed a bit hard, but we got used to that very quickly. The breakfast selection was excellent and the... More

Stayed 3 nights here and were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room, the quietness of the hotel in general and the professionalism of the staff. The location is not as close as many other hotels to Kyoto station, but the regular run of the shuttle to the station makes this a non issue. Really liked the water features... More

The hotel is well located near the station, has a spectacular innercourt, and the rooms are just perfect. The staff is friendly and take all the time to show you the nice places to visit and to eat. Good value for the modest rate.
