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

Good hotel, clean, good service, but honestly there is nothing special or with a personal touch and charms to it. The location is close to the center of the local action, but not righ into it. Our room (38 sq meters standard) was in very good conditions

The Hotel Nikko Princess Kyoto was perfectly situated for easy access to all sites in Kyoto! The room was very comfortable, and the amenities were abundant. The staff was also very helpful. If you're looking for a western style hotel in Kyoto, don't hesitate to book here.

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
