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. The staff's english was enough to get what you wanted and everybody from the hotel manager... More

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. I love the bath room because it has a large shower space. Buffet breakfast does not have too many choices but quality of food is good. But I don't quite understand why they only provides... More

Although the hotel seem outdated when entering into the reception area, the rooms are very clean and spacious. Shower area is huge, they have a large bathtub and a spacious area for a japanese style shower (plastic chair and bucket to shower while sitting).

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

We stayed for 3 nights in March. The staff were very gracious and helpful when two in our family became ill. The buffet breakfast downstairs was excellent. The only drawbacks for us were: (1) no fitness center on site or anywhere near - the hotel directs you to an athletic club about a 1/2 mile away that doesn't open until... More
