We booked this hotel knowing it was 'slightly' out of the centre. We like walking and the location meant we would do lots of that. As another reviewer mentioned there is a really good local restaurant on the corner just along from the hotel (little coffee shop opposite). We ate there twice as it was so good and not expensive....

When we arrived at the hotel, it looked fantastic from the outside and at first we thought we were quite away from everything. We arrived at 14:40 and hoping to be allowed to check in a little early we were told that we had to wait until 3pm! This didn't impress us as straight after another member of staff stated... More

This hotel sits in a quiet area in central Kyoto and provides everything one would expect of a top Japanese hotel. The staff are all very friendly, very helpful and respectful of any need we had. The concierge is amazing, a reason to stay alone! The rooms are roomy with a welcoming lobby. We can't wait to return!

We stayed here for 5 nights in a quad room. The rooms are spacious, clean and well equipped. The beds are comfortable and we found the air con effective. Staff are very pleasant, courteous and helpful and this is something we are finding across Japan. We didn't eat at the hotel as there didn't seem to be many options for... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at the Brighton Hotel: the spacious room, shower- and bath-room, the tea-making amenities and the location. The hotel is walking distance from the imperial palace and the reliable shuttle service takes guests back and forth from an underground stop. It is easy from there to walk to downtown. We had breakfast at the hotel... More

Pros; The staff is very freindly and helpful, some even speak english! They let us check-in early and out late, which is uncommon in Japan. The hotel is clean and tidy The location is ok, not smack in the middle of Kyoto, but very close to subway 10 meters (the elevator goes directly to subway level) and trains 75 meters,... More

We stayed for five nights here and the room was fantastic with large room and bathroom. Excellent service from very friendly staff. Restaurant food quality is very good, we used the western style buffet and there was a wide range of choice for breakfast and dinner.

Loved the hotel. We stayed in a quad room, lots of space and the bathroom is huge. The lobby is gorgeus - and we enjoyed a glass of chamapgne listening to classic music everynight. It is indeed of center (near imperial palace). But they offer a shuttle all day long to a more central location.

Positive: - the room comfortably housed 4 single beds (2 slender beds, 2 larger) - the bathroom was nice & they had really good vanity products - one of the conceriage ladies was very helpful...

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighborhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
