The hotel itself is large, has several decent if not great restaurants in it, and has free, fast WiFi. The staff is quite pleasant and helpful, if not bending over backwards for you. The location is a little blah but workable. The breakfast buffet is also totally fine: good but not outstanding. This is also clearly a wedding-focused hotel, with... More

Decent hotel, rooms of a good size. Free shuttle from Kyoto station is convenient. Area around hotel is a little quiet but we did find some small restaurants on the streets East of the hotel. Service excellent and the concierge was especially kind and came with good suggestions.

Many people state the location is an issue , personally I found it not a problem. The shuttle bus runs every 15 minutes to Kyoto station and a taxi is less than 10 US dollars. The Gojo metro station is nearby and reception has 1 or 2 day passes for metro and bus. We walked to the number 5 bus... More

The hotel itself is great, it was perfect for our 2 night stay in Kyoto. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and quite spacious compared to some other hotels in Japan. The location of the hotel is not the best, it is just past walking distance from the main train station. However, they do have a shuttle bus which drops you... More

Immaculate hotel. Clean and a lovely atmosphere. Rooms were comfortable and were a good size. Good location we felt as all public transport was close by. The hotel also had a free shuttle bus which went to and from the kyoto station every half an hour from 8am to 8.30pm (when it is busy the shuttle runs almost every 15mins).... More

We stayed at the hotel for only one night on a quick sightseeing tour of Kyoto. It's a good location close to the train station but also near some interesting sites and a quick journey to the main Shrine tour and Gion district. The room was smallish but very comfortable with a really good bed. The staff were friendly and... More

Nice hotel with clean, spacious and well appointed rooms. Only problem was that it is a bit out of the way. The nearest local train/underground was a 15 minute walk, or a 30 minute walk into the city centre. We did not investigate busses, but that may be an option. There was a very efficient free shuttle to the main... More

If you are visiting Kyoto The Kyoto Tokyu Hotel is a great option! The hotel is unassuming om the outside but cozy, comfortable and inviting in the inside. Five minutes from the Kyoto Station, with a very convenient shuttle bus every 15 to 30 minutes, it is very easy to access trains and taxis. The hotel main restaurant has a... More

i love the fact that it has shuttle bus service to/from hotel and kyoto train station. It makes it convenient but its worth noting that this service stops from 2030pm so thats the last bus you can get from the station. it would be nicer if they extend this til later on the evening

We stayed here for 3 nights in January. The hotel was pleasant enough but not particularly conventient to restaurants or major sites. The bed was comfy but my goodness the pillows were hard! Strange rules about use of the gym were quite off-putting (you need to go and get a separate key for the gym and must return it each... More
