Nikko Princess is a traditional hotel with a good location both for shopping and nice restaurants. The hospitality in this hotel is something to remember. I forgot one bag in a drawer and they arrange the delivery to Osaka very smoothly. Breakfast was good and rooms little bit worn but good size. I would stay here again.

The nearest shopping mall to the hotel is Daimaru Kyoto (10 minutes walk). The most... More

Near the hotel are many coffee shops, restaurants and a metro. All the hotel staff are very helpful and courteous, especially the staff at the front... More

The hotel is of age but well kept. It is at a quiet neighborhood and yet less than 5 min walk you find Daimaru department store! I love the location! The room is dated though maintained with best effort. Since we just stayed for one night so I didn't complain about the smell at the toilet area. Honestly this is... More

This hotel is in the center of Kyoto, close to the fish market, close to the main attractions, there are big meeting rooms if you want to have meeting, a good hotel for groups. The rooms are nice, the bathroom is big as well.

This is an average four star hotel but with very dated décor. The location is reasonable with good access to the metro, not far from the railway station, quiet but slightly away from the true centre of town and the main sights. Room sizes are O.K. but ceilings are low and the furnishings and décor that look twenty years old.... More

Although not the most up to date hotel in terms of design etc., if you're after a Western style hotel, this is a great place to base yourself for a few days in Kyoto. The room we had (1501) was spacious, with two beds, a lounge area, and decent bathroom with separate bath and shower. The soundproofing is good a... More
