The hotel is not very modern but very nice. The guy at the front desk wasn't the nicest but during all our stay the same person took care of us and every needs we might have, she was very nice. If we had to send something or anything she arrived and took care of anything. The room was the largest... More

If you prefer a western style hotel in Japan the 126 year old hotel Okura might be your choice. It is just next to the city hall, many restaurants and super markets are minutes away, a good base for exploring. Excellent breakfast buffet, nice but expensive Restaurant in the 17th floor with excellent views. Large rooms, 70th style, more like... More

Impressive 1920s lobby. Excellent location in a busy shopping district with many nearby restaurants. Clean, well-kept rooms but nothing exceptional. The staff was very courteous, and the concierges were particularly helpful in finding and booking restaurants for us. The one disappointment was the mediocre international breakfast buffet.

From the grand lobby with the central staircase to the bellhops in pillbox hats, this place totally reminds us of the Grand Budapest Hotel. There is even an internal courtyard/atrium so that you can call hello to (or shoot at) someone on another floor. The concierges (who all seem to be women) are incredibly helpful. Ask them anything. They are... More

The Kyoto Hotel Okura is an enjoyable upper-class establishment in downtown Kyoto. I stayed here nearly a week. Highlights are the stellar service, convenient location, and comfortable rooms. The hotel is conveniently connected to the Kyoto Shiyakushomae subway stop. This neighborhood has many restaurants, shops, and is within walkable distance to atmospheric Ponto-cho and lively Gion. A short 5 min... More

A modern and very comfortable hotel. Well located and convenient to shopping and walking. Easy cab ride from train. Great bathroom facilities and very comfortable beds. Clean and attractive linens and towels. We had a great eastward looking view to the river and Geisha district. We had a great Kobe steak meal, expensive but maybe the best beef we have... More

We stayed in this hotel for three nights and never regret we selected hotel. Check in was quick with a smile and received an upgrade to a Corner Deluxe room, which was a nice gesture. The Corner Deluxe room was spacious (though it’s decoration is a matter of taste) and had all the amenities expected from a 4 four star... More

The hotel is centrally located in Kyoto and right next to a subway station. Proximity to a subway stations makes it really easy to get to the Kyoto Station should you not be able to take advantage of the hotel's complimentary shuttle (runs every 30 minutes). We were able to take advantage of the shuttle at Welcome Lounge at Kyoto... More

If you're going to Kyoto and a stay in a traditional Ryokan is not on your agenda, you are bound to be glad you stayed at this large, well-run hotel. The reasonable price belies really top-notch service: the concierge staff quickly and ably handled our every need. Some plans come with breakfast; our last visit we had such a plan... More

We stayed as part of a tour. The room was comfortable and adequate but in need of refurbishment. Staff was attentive and helpful. Good location, within walking distance of main shopping areas and restaurants. Design and room locations were somewhat inconvenient, with our room effectively a city block from the only elevators, and separate elevators to serve meeting rooms and... More
