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 Our room was small, a bit outdated, but clean.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...

The hotel is located just I front of Kyoto station. You can't get wrong if you focused on the location. Convenient access to buses, subway and jr line. Because of international guests, good breakfast with lots of choices. I am very impressed with the range of choices for the price for one night stay. (Paid only usd 87 aporox inclusive... More

We were a group of 21 and this was our second time at Kyoto Tower we love everything about this hotel, the location, price, breakfast, wifi, the helpful staff and room service. It is directly across from the train station and bus stop which are our main forms of transport in Kyoto. We had a very easy checkin at 2pm... More

the hotel is very close to the main station and there are dozens of shops , cafes and restaurants nearby , also close to the metro station and close to several attractions. rooms are small but okay for Japanese standards. good for a short stay of a few days , if you want to relax in Kyoto try something else

Average hotel, where rooms are in need of an update. No real lobby space, but breakfast was more than OK. The hotel is located just across from Kyoto station, but quite far from the shopping and restaurang district of downtown Kyoto.

Next to the Kyoto train station, the hotel offers a good starting point to visit the city. Free wifi, fridge, hairdryer, coffee-tee facility in the room. The price is ok for a three star hotel. The location is also close to the metro, and next to the Kyoto Tower

For transport connections this is perfect, directly opposite the station, you can be on the local platforms in under 5 minutes and the shinkansen ones in under 10. Foodwise though you are limited to either eating in the station or the shopping mall behind the hotel (or snacks in the room). Most of the station restaurants in the top floor... More

This hotel has an excellent location, straight across the road from the train station. The rooms were clean and comfortable, albeit small (as with every room in Japan). The staff had excellent English and the free tickets to go up the tower were a great bonus. Highly recommend.
