I am writing this review during my final night of my stay at the Nikko Princess Hotel in Kyoto. Based on my experience I have only good things to say about the hotel. The rooms are spacious and clean, the beds are firm but comfortable and the staff is very helpful. The hotel staff has been very supportive in getting... More

This hotel was clean and elegant. This hotel is not typical tiny Japanese style and has spacious well equipped rooms. It was in a location that was a quick walk to the local shopping and well placed temples and sights.

Kyoto is lovely! We spent 2 days, touring and staying at this hotel as part of the Trafalgar group. My impression here: an old style establishment, large room, old but comfortable furniture. The breakfast can be tumultuous and we had to wait to be seated because the lounge was full. Good internet, good location, staff more than helpful. Not my... More

I highly recommend the Nikko Princess Kyoto. It was excellent in all ways: service, cleanliness, price and size. I still cannot get over how cheap it was give what I got. Service: I arrived before check in and not only did they hold my bags (honestly, every hotel does this), but when I came back to the hotel in the... More

We stayed in a three person room which was really great size with all the things you could ask from a great hotel. Free fast WIFI, great Japanese bathroom, minibar (fridge big enough to put your own drinks in) safe and very gracious staff.

Three of us stayed here for five nights in May this year. We were impressed by the courtesy and helpfulness of the staff and the welcome we received each time we returned from our trips out. The concierge was particularly helpful as were the restaurant staff who made a point of asking about allergies and remembered throughout our stay that... More

I had a room on the executive floor (not my usual category) so I don't have a clue about the regular rooms. However, if you want a stylish and spacious (to Japanese standards: huge) room with a view and every comfort: recommended. Nikko is a classic Grand Hotel with excellent service and gracious staff. Of course, all the extras come... More

Stay there for six days. Location of hotel is good. Close to MTR station. Quiet environment but only minutes away from the lively shopping district.

May be it's not the newest hotel, but rooms are big enough rooms, staff is friendly and it's near the subway station, 2 stations away from central Kyoto stations and connections to the Shinkansen. Breakfast is excellent, as the two restaurants are for having dinner after a tiresome tourism day. Price/quality ratio is slightly high, and, as above said, it... More
