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

We had a great vacation in Kyoto and this Hotel was a good part of it. Brighton Hotel has a modern and elegant décor. Service is superb, all staff are incredibly nice and helpful. Our room was modern and very comfortable, we got a quad since we are family of four. Our two teens enjoyed their time at the hotel.... More

This is a nice hotel in a quiet area of Kyoto, just West of the Imperial Palace. I had a TBI a couple of years ago so quiet areas with decreased audio/visual stimulation is a must for me. I live in a busy part of Tokyo for half of each month...I welcomed the reprieve from the noise. We stayed here... More

Our japanese friends booked this hotel for us, since I was looking to book at any of the "well know western" brands hotels, but this being the high season in Kyoto everything was fully booked. I must say we were very pleasantly surprised. The entrance of the hotel is very impressive with the interior courtyard and restaurants. The hotel itself... More

We had heard about the relative location disadvantage of Kyoto Brighton hotel, but that proved to be a very minor issue. We stayed in the hotel for 6 nights. The place is world class and the staff are very polite. Ms Uraka from the guest relations team was very patient and prompt with my various questions over the email prior... More

Just 5 minutes walk to the Imperial Palace with free shuttle bus to subway system ensured we had easy access to the main sites in Kyoto. Hotel staff very polite and helpful with very clean and large, lovely rooms. (Reception picture does not do justice to the actulal hotel). Would recommend this hotel and would stay here again. A little... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms were spacious, clean and filled with useful amenities. Great service too. Only downside is that it's located a bit too North from Kyoto central but they have free shuttles going to and from a station that's four stops away from Kyoto station.

Close to Imperial Gardens and a little out of the way for Gion etc but easy to catch a taxi or subway. It's a nice walk when warm but can be long if you're underdressed and cold in the winter. The service was impeccable - they are incredibly welcoming. The concierge recommended and booked restaurants all of which were excellent... More
