Konichiwa, the hotel staff bow when you arrive and every time you leave and always have a smile for you. This is an expensive hotel to eat at with a small glass of wine going for twenty dollars and small portions of food as well. The hotel breakfast features western food as well as Japanese food in their buffet. One... More

I have a passion for hotels - have had this passion for over forty years. Now and then something really special comes along and this hotel was for us in that category. Located in a wonderful area of Kyoto very near the Imperial Palace and many shops and restaurants within walking distance. What makes the hotel so special is the... More

Visted this hotel while on business in Kyoto. The hotel is staffed by very personable employees who are ateentive and helpful. They have there own shuttle bus which is really useful. The property is a 5 minute walk away from the Imperial Royal Palace and 12 minutes walk away from the castle. All in all I had a great experience... More

Rooms were plenty big, clean, and comfortable enough. Breakfast buffet was not great - not even good and about $23 a person - so I recommend going elsewhere for breakfast. Didn't try the other meals here.

Expect top notch customer service from the hotel staffs. Room was very clean and relatively spacious. Huge bathroom. Hotaru restaurant was a little pricey but the kaiseki style meals were really worth the experience.

Our hotel stay was enjoyable, though not up to the standards of most 4 or 5 star hotels. The internet was extremely spotty and not as fast as I would have liked. The hotel does offer various restaurants where you can eat different cuisines - we chose the Chinese restaurant and the tasting menu was delicious. The front desk also... More

The rooms are very nice, good solution for bathroom with both shower and bathtub separated from the toilet with a glass window. Internet worked well and is it's free. Staff is nice and helpful. The hotel is a bit out of city center, however it's not a problem because they have the shuttle bus to the metro station every 20... More

Overall I would give the Kyoto Brighton 5 stars for service and amenities. The staff are amazing. They bend over to do whatever they can for you, especially the 2 lovely concierges. The food in the main restaurant is delicious. The rooms have been updated since my last stay so it was nice to be in a new room. Only... More
