The hotel is located just across the Kyoto Station and bus terminus, which makes it ideal for back-to- back travel around Kyoto in public transport. It is also surrounded by numerous eateries and shopping plazas. However, if you are not into intense travel, you can look for more quieter locations. The approach to the Kyoto Tower within the hotel premises.... More

Can fit 4 beds in a room ( one on a lounge which was fine for my son). Pretty basic, clean but smelling a bit of smoke, very close to transport which is handy but there are much better parts of Kyoto to stay in that are not noisy bustly transport hubs.

We booked 2 rooms. The rooms are small but clean and quiet. It is opposite the train station and a bus interchange. We were able to go to the attractions by taking the buses at the bus interchange. There are many convenience shops and cafés around the area. We have no problem finding a place for breakfast.

Hotel is just opposite the main Kyoto Train & Bus Station. Very convenient for everything that you may need for a holiday. Huge underground shopping and eateries. However, the underground is not link to the hotel. All tourist attractions are accessible by the bus which is quite easy to use. Buy a day-pass at 500yen and you will be able... More

The Kyoto Tower hotel is very easy to find just in front of Kyoto train station. Our room was small, a bit outdated, but clean. The hotel is a good option, if you just want a decent place to sleep for the night.

We chose this hotel and location since we were planning to travel on JR to other city from Kyoto. Very convenient location and easy to find. Room we had, standard twin (smallest room with 2 beds I think) room was very narrow that barely fit beds. Room was clean although the building was quite dated, seemed that they had refurbished...
