We stayed in a 4 person room which was a regular room with 2 roll away beds added so it was a little tight. The hotel was very nice. Clean. Most of the staff spoke English well and all were very eager to make our stay enjoyable and easy. The only hesitation I have about staying here again is it's... More

Excellent service at this hotel. The first room we were given smelt of smoke but we were moved swiftly. The hotel itself is a bit far out which can be seen as an advantage but as we didn't eat at the hotel, preferring to eat in city restaurants, this was a disadvantage for us. The room was very comfortable with... More

We stayed there for 2 nights for a family trip. The hotel is a bit far from the main train station and you will need to take a taxi to get there. However, the location is quiet and safe. The service at the hotel was wonderful, the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable for US travelers. They have a lovely... More

Japanese customer service is always very impressive, it's good hotel with smiley and helpful staff. Location is not very convenient as it's far from the subway, but hotel offers shuttle bus which is quite handy.

July 14-17, 2014 was my stay at this wonderful gem of a hotel. The staff and service was that of a 5 star hotel. The food wasn't that great and extremely expensive (buffet breakfast was $29USD) so I only at there once, but I was too busy to eat in the hotel anyway. Plus, they were more than willing to... More

Just facts. 1. Yes the hotel is a bit out the way, but not ridiculous. 2. New designed 'EN' rooms, lovely and classic "old" Japanese style. 3. Breakfast a bit expensive but good selection and in the heat of the summer saves you going out in the morning & the heat! 4. Very very expensive restaurants. We were 35,000 yen... More

This is my third time staying in the Brighton Hotel.My family and I stayed there for four nights in June.We stay here because we love the location of the hotel in a quiet Kyoto neighborhood. Don't stay here if you want to be in the hustle and bustle of downtown Kyoto because this location is the opposite. There is a... More

I love the staffs thou they can't speak English much but they've been very helpful to us especially in arranging activities and restaurant booking. Other than that, we love our room and the toilet awesome with complete amenities! The japanese breakfast set..awesome. I love my porridge and seated next to the garden view. Love the 4days experience.

The food is way over priced. I cannot believe this hotel continues to get such great reviews. It's in a residential part of Kyoto. Horrible location to be at on your vacation. When we go back to Kyoto, there is absolutely no way we would consider staying at this hotel again. It is a very inconvenient location.
