Modern Hotel. The bedroom was crisp, clean, and well laid out - lots of little drawers in the bathroom keeping all toiletries out of sight but ready at hand! This hotel is large - rooms are designed around an open ground floor foyer which also has a restaurant and bar. I enjoyed a really nice cocktail in the bar area... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were really impressed. The sheer size of the interior area when you first walk in is huge and commanding, but also quite relaxing when sitting in the lounge / bar area. The staff are so attentive, probably the best service we had in all of Japan. They are just so eager to please... More

I stayed for 2 days and had a great time. It is located in a beautiful japanese area near the Imperial Palace. It is near the bus station and near all the attractions in Gion and Kawamarachi. The rooms are big and the bathtub after all the temple visits is the perfect way to end the day. Shiseido products are... More

We stayed 4 days in Kyoto and visited easily from our hotel. The main attractions are within a walking distance or requiring a short bicycle ride. The bicycles are offered free of charge and I found them the most confortable ever! The staff is very helpful and friendly.

We stayed in this hotel during a holiday in Japan. We stayed three days, but we would happily have stayed for a month! The hotel is wonderful. The outside did not seem to promise much, but the inside is phenomenal. We were greeted warmly, we have entrusted a person for all needs. The two rooms were beautiful, the bathroom one... More

This is a better than average hotel in a quiet area close to the Imperial Palace. The concierge was outstanding - very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast buffet was good, although the coffee was basic.

Nice upscale hotel in a quiet neighborhood walking distance to Kyoto Imperial Palace. Room was nice size for Japan with large soaking tub. Did not try the Resturaunt. Shuttle bus takes you nears some nice locations, well within walking distance of drop off locations.

As a visit with the family we stayed at the Brighton in October 2015. The Brighton is a very large hotel, I think it is meant primarily for business travelers. First of all I will list some positives with the hotel. The hotel rooms themselves were large and comfortable. They accommodated our family nicely with two single beds in the... More

The staff’s professionalism, friendliness and hospitality was outstanding! In particular, we’d like to thank the Concierge, Kumiko Sakai, for assisting us in locating and retrieving the bag pack we lost on the Shinkansen train. We also loved the amenities in the room, the nominal charge for the room upgrade, and the shuttle service to downtown Kyoto. Staying at the Brighton... More

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.
