I thought the staff were very good and the location was ok. There was little to differentiate this hotel from many others. There is a free shuttle from the train station, which is helpful, but there was not a lot of guidance once you arrived at the hotel.

Spent 4 nights at this hotel again found the lack of English spoken and understood frustrating.The hotel is well presented and the female attendees dressed in Kimono a nice touch.But also as I caught the train to Nijojomae Station from Shinjuku I found that there was no signage to the hotel and as the hotel sits back off the street...

This hotel has a lovely lobby and grounds and seems to cater to many wedding parties. The staff was friendly and spoke English fairly well, the free airport shuttle ran regularly and reliably, and the rooms were clean. However, the rooms were a bit outdated and worn, and the location is a bit removed from the hustle and bustle of... More

Hotel is in a great location, we were upgraded to a room that overlooks the castle, and the free shuttle bus to the hotel was nice (but hard to find - hotel needs to advertise where this bus is!) The room wasn't too bad. Lots of comments on here about the rooms being outdated but it's clean enough and has... More

We had a 2 night stopover in Kyoto at ANA Crowne Plaza. We arrived by Shinkansen and we were unable to locate the shuttle bus site for transfer to the Hotel. We subsequently found it operates from the Shinkansen side and not from the Bus Station Side of the Station. We then did use the shuttle and found it worked... More

We really enjoyed the hotel. It's a little sad that in the heat of summer the pool was heated and indoors but it's more than just a pool - it's a Japanese sauna, spa etc.On the other side of town from Gion (Geisha) district but really close to the JR line and opposite the Kyoto-jo.

We stayed at the Crowne Plaza Kyoto on a recent holiday. I chose it because I had a lot of IHG points to use and it was, therefore, a free option. I was a bit worried what the hotel would be like after reading some of the reviews. I didn't feel that the hotel was as dated as some of... More

Good location by metro and good shuttle bus service to station (operates from the Shinkansen side, not the bus station). Rooms were fine, but small, bathroom was in need of some TLC. Despite non-smoking room an overwhelming smell of cigarettes hit us on the last night (downstairs?). Breakfast was decent for choice, quality and value. Had to pay extra to... More

Its a very nice business hotel located in the center of kyoto with very good services, rooms, and staff. Great luxurious lobby, and great and clean rooms. Piano bar that opens until 1am. Very recommendable hotel for business (well located) and well communicated. They have a shuttle to the Central Station for the shinkasen. Very good hotel and recommendable.
