We didn't have high expectations for the Tower Hotel. We just needed a place to crash for one night. While it is quite dated and worn it is also very clean and well maintained. Also they have robe pajamas, slippers, and toiletries for each visitor in the room and of course all the staff is friendly and helpful. We had... More

We paid 56,000yen (approximately 550aud) to stay three nights; so quite expensive. The staff cannot speak much English and are un-helpful when it comes to things to do in Kyoto, we requested a non-smoking room and were placed in a room opposite the smoking room of the floor - the drifting smell was unbearable. The breakfast selection was ok; apart... More

This hotel is at a very central place, located just front of Kyoto Station, no hassle to go to the hotel. The room is spacious and clean, and once you checked in you will be offered a discounted price to go up the Kyoto Tower. Staffs are friendly and fluent in English, getting around was easy. Restaurants, shopping centres, groceries... More

This hotel is all about location, directly across from Kyoto station. You can't miss it (the tower is on top). Which was great for us getting in late at night. The room was cozy but clean. The breakfast was just OK and not included. Our only problem really was that the room was very warm and noisy as we were... More

This hotel is celebrating its 50th birthday. If you want super modern don't come here but if you don't mind 60s style and slightly faded with decent sized rooms then this is a good option. We had a 3 share deluxe room (cost 15,000 yen per night) and it was worth spending a bit more for the deluxe as I... More

The hotel was very clean, the staff very friendly and they spoke english. The hotel has a great view and very well located close to the Kyoto station. The centre is walking distance and there is a nice French restaurant for brekfast around the corner. The rooms are not big, but big enough for a pleasant stay.

The location of this hotel is fantastic - just opposite the kyoto main train station. You can get good food and shopping nearby. The room is a bit small but that is a norm in japan. It is basic and very clean. The bed is quite hard and the bathroom is a small cubicle - again it is quite normal... More
