The Kyoto Tower Hotel was my first hotel in my Japan stay (10 days).The location is great, in front of the main rail station, so you can go almost anywhere in Kyoto, there is a lot of public transportation from this point. I was there with my husband and my son (18 years old) in June 2015 and we had... More

Stayed in a room with two beds. Room was surprisingly spacious compared to other places I've stayed in Japan, with lots of electric sockets. Really close to Kyoto Station and Kyoto Yodobashi. Kyoto Tower is right above the hotel, and you can buy souvenirs at the neighboring store. Everything works well, especially the hot water after a long day of... More

I came here in good spirits in the hopes that I would also experience what other tripadvisor reviewers were getting. I already had low expectations due to other reviewers of the room. However this was the only reason why I paid a premium on Saturday night to stay here - more than other similar 3 star hotels. I made sure... More

We stayed here for three nights in november 2014. The room was quite small but everything you need was in it and compared to the Japanese we are a sort of giants so we were not shocked by the size of the room. We received tickets to visit the tower on top for free which was very nice. The hotel... More

Stayed for five nights on no business trip. Room was very small, as Japanese hotels often are but clean and comfortable. Very central location in city and directly opposite the main rail station. Easy access to shopping and restaurant areas. Have a cocktail in the tower bar, rather overpriced but spectacular views.

Personally speaking, I'm quite a fans of Kyoto Tower area, including the revived Kyoto Station complex. This hotel would be a good choice for anyone who wish to feel the nostalgic ambiance of Kyoto Tower, especially at night. In addition, the hotel provide a special discount for traveler to go to the observation deck of the old, yet loved tower.... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way back up to Tokyo. Travelling as a family of 3 (2 adults 1 child). The main strength of the hotel is it's location right next to Kyoto station. A short walk from the station, through the bus station gets you to the hotel which is easily located by the obvious reference... More

The hotel is right opposite Kyoto Railway Station and Bus Station. All the tourist attractions can be easily accessed by catching a train or bus. The guests get a discount to go to the Top of Tower.

The hotel was located conveniently right across the road from the train and bus station. However, the room we stayed in was tiny. There was hardly space to fit our luggage. The hotel was busy with different groups of people coming and going, holding meetings in the convention rooms on different floors. There was a bit of noise from the... More

Only thing good with this hotel is location and ok beds, but the air condition does not work and windows cannot be opened... our room got extremely hot and it was just spring time! Most amenities advertised when booking don't belong to the hotel and are only available just if you pay extra fees for them (this is not honest)...... More
