4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed 3 nights and liked the central location of the hotel. Some of the interior a bit dated but overall a good 4 star experience. The breakfast is a bit on the expensive side, but good selection. Walking distance to the main shopping area and some great japanese restaurants.

We stayed three nights while on tour. First impressions from awesome foyer and very friendly staff is great. Room is quite large, comfortable and clean. Separate shower rather than shower over bath was welcome change. Buffet breakfast was very good. Location is very good with only a few minutes walk to shops and restaurants. If you want to save a...

We just left the hotel this morning. It is well located in Kyoto close to the shopping district, subway, and other interesting neighborhoods such as Gion. The staff was very attentive, polite, and helpful. The room on the 9th floor was above average with a spacious bathroom. We had breakfast every morning at Amber Café and it was worthy. They... More

The welcome upon arrival at the hotel was exceptional, as was the very efficient checkin procedure. The Karasuma station and bus stops are approx. A 6-8 minutes' walk away. A few restaurants, coffee shops, 7eleven store and an Irish pub are close by. The room was nicely decorated and offered nice views of Kyoto (see picture). Reception took care of... More

Although the room we stayed in was a bit dated, it was very large, quiet and comfortable! The staff is extraordinarily helpful with anything you need. We ate at the breakfast buffet which was excellent, the best we encountered in Japan. Dinner was very good especially the vegetable curry I had one evening. The hotel is centrally located in Kyoto...

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
