I chose this hotel because Sunroute is a great brand – I’ve stayed in two other Sunroute hotels and found them flawless. Hotel Sunroute Kyoto is well located – very central – and is very good value. The breakfast is good. And the staff are typical Sunroute staff – EXCEPTIONAL – and do all they can to make your stay... More

Probably in the best and most convenient position of any hotel in Kyoto, the Sunroute is on the canal and river, a 5 minute stroll to the main city centre and a myriad eateries, has a bus stop out front which takes you to Kyoto station in 7 minutes and is a mere 20 minute walk to the eastern hills....

I usually stay at the Sunroute Plaza Hotel in Tokyo and I rave about it. Thinking that Sunroute was such a great brand I thought this would be a great value like their property in Tokyo. The hotel is in the best location of any hotels in Kyoto. It is literally a 5 minute walk to the Main city center... More

Comfortable beds, a coin operated laundry room, reasonably priced cafe and restaurant, friendly and helpful English-speaking staff. Rooms very clean and also quiet despite being on a main road. 5 mins walk to main shopping area with convenience stores situated just outside the hotel. Room was quite small and bathroom tiny, but overall excellent value for money.

We stayed two nights at this hotel in our recent trip to Kyoto. The taxi fare from Kyoto station (after arriving from Osaka Kansai by the airport limousine bus) to the hotel was 800 Yen. It was a short ride of under 10 minutes. With lower exchange rate for Japanese Yen these days, we are quite pleased with the rates... More

This hotel is a great location very clean, staff could speak better English and be a little bit more helpful, there was only one staff member who spoke the English. Is a great place to go walking from though as is directly overlooking the river.

We recently spent 4 nights here as we took in the sights of Kyoto and its surroundings. While a little bit off the main transit areas of Kyoto station and subways, the hotel was a stone's throw from the Kamogawa River which winds through most of the city. When we arrived in Kyoto from Kansai Airport, we dropped our bags... More

This hotel located near Kawaramachi station which is one of the biggest station in Kyoto. You can take bus which is direct to Ginkakuchi right in front of hotel main gate. And you can go Gion, Bonpocho by 10 min. walk. Room is clear but little bit small. If you are more than 2, it would be better to take... More
