We stayed at the Nikko Princess in Kyoto for two days. It was a wonderful experience, the lobby is spectacular. The rooms are fine, although they could take a little updating. The hotel is very well situated, close to Gion and close to the stores. They have only one restaurant, however, they serve both japanese and western food. In general,... More

This is a large hotel, located not far from Gion (it's about a 20-minute walk). It's also very close to the amazing Nishiki Food Market. The entrance and lobby are impressive, and the hotel staff is very courteous and friendly. The rooms are spacious compared to other hotels that I stayed at in Japan. The bathroom was also very large... More

Booked 3 weeks ago and checked in today to find that special request for non-smoking room not honoured and given a supposedly deodorised room which to non-smokers smelled pretty bad. Moved to a second room which was better but still not what one would expect from a supposedly good hotel. A non-smoking room found for the next three days of... More

Had a recent March 2015 three-night stay. I was concerned from prior reviews about the "dated" and "old" furniture in the rooms, worried that it would be a musty old warhorse hotel. It was not. Sure the furniture was not Four Seasons modern aesthetic, but it was clean, and nice, and the room sizes were larger on average than many... More

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
