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.

We had three nights at the Brighton and it's a nice hotel, some reviews I had read mentioned that the location wasn't great. Ok it's not in the middle of the city but with the shuttle bus service it really isn't a problem, and more than makes up for this. You are also only a few mins walk from the... More

I was there with my husband and my twins. Beautiful hotel, spacious rooms, really exceptional service. Was a little pricey for a hotel outside of downtown. Breakfast was expensive, especially the continental breakfast;and is was so poor.

We were fortunate to have been in Japan while the cherry blossoms were in bloom, but the downside was that getting a hotel in Kyoto was extremely difficult. One of the few hotels with rooms was the Brighton, which is a little inconvenient and in a residential neighborhood (not a great shopping or eating area), and also pricy based on... More

Great service, great rooms (superior), fantastic large modern bathrooms, everything was clean and comfy. I have to particularly mention how fantastic the concierge was. She was very professional, knew her stuff and was very helpful in directing me with different tour options and routes to take to see everything I wanted to see in a short time period available to...

This was the last stop on our Japan trip, and was the only western style hotel we stayed in during the entire trip. The rooms are modern and very spacious, excellent room service menu to keep the kids happy who were a bit sick of Japanese food by then. Cafe in lobby serves the most delicate pastries, so good you... More

This place is great! Clean, comfortable, quiet, and a good location. The hotel itself looks a bit dated on the outside as well as the lobby (the staff outfits also look a bit dated) but the rooms themselves have been refurbished and are modern. The hotel and their staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome. If I... More
