Excelent location, although very close to the station, they offer free transportation, staff very helpful, room very comfortable and clean. We liked very much the tea house of the hotel. The tea and cake were delicious after a day exploring many temples.

A great hotell in Kyoto , well placed close to the railway station, polite personnell, some great restaurants inside the hotel. On the surface it gives every impression of beeing a luxury hotell. But when you look closer, the polish cracks. The door safety lock of the room was broken, the extra pillow missed its cover, and the pillow was... More

We stayed at the Rihga Royal Hotel for nine days, The staff were very hard working, welcoming and helpful and most of them were able to speak English to a reasonable level which was a relief as neither of us speak Japanese! The rooms were comfortable in the main but beds in Japan have a tendancy to be on the... More

A one night stay booked through a JR package: Pluses: Good size of room, wonderfully clean, excellent bathroom, amazing breakfast, located very close to railway station, free pickup service to railway, quiet rooms and helpful front desk. Minus: Room was too hot with no thermostat

Very nice place to stay with considerably large rooms as per japan standards. The location is convenient with the station within four minutes of walking. And of course a very helpful team of front and bell desk. The breakfast is a very good mix of International as well as Japanese. On a whole a very nice experience.

The room is a typical Japanese room, meaning small. I found everything to be clean, and the staff helpful. It's in a good location close to the train station and within walking distance of several temples.

Rooms are small. Beds are short. Mattress not very comfortable. Weird plastic-feeling blanket. Rooms are overheated and do not have individual thermostat. Bathroom stinks! Did I mention that the bathroom stinks?! I mean stinks as in smells badly. Did not want to be in there for a second longer than I had too.

Perfectly located, just a few steps away from the JR station and the bus terminals. It's a style of well-run Intourist Hotel. Rooms are small but well furnished. The hotel is nice but without any bonus. Good breakfast.

We had high hopes when we arrived at this hotel as it's in a great location and looks very smart from the outside and into the reception area, Unfortunately we found (as some others have) a few big downers, most notably that the entire property is centrally heated and the rooms are close the 30 degrees celcius. They have obviously... More

We stayed here for two nights in October 2013, because we couldn't really find anything else. It is a very grand hotel and the rooms are nice enough but not worth what we paid for them. The hotel is near the train station but on the edge of everything else, although there is a free city bus which we made... More
