We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, we had to book through a travel agent as the hotel doesn't seems to have a direct email for bookings. We had booked 2 interconnecting non smoking rooms which I had double checked with the travel agent, which she confirmed with the hotel, however when we arrived we had been put in... More

We booked our room 3-months in advance on Expedia with a pre-paid but fully refundable rate for $89 (10,500 Yen) per night. Our room booked was a non-smoking standard twin. To be honest, with such a good rate, I was a little worried what we might be staying in, but those concerns were unfounded. I think there are 3 critical... More

Stayed here over the January 17 weekend. Paid more for the free buffet breakfast and an upgraded room on the 'comfort' floor. Breakfast - paid an extra $10/night per person for this and it was worth it. Really a big spread of food, Asian and Western... everything you want and more. Comfort Floor - I expected to be 'wowed' by... More

The location is very convenient, literally right outside the train station, aka convenient for shopping and sight seeing. The room is very big considering Japan standards, our room is big enough for 2 beds and 1 sofa. Also there is a very nice humidifier in the room, very happy about this. Bed is also comfortable. Bathroom a bit small but... More

We had a very pleasant stay at the excellent Kyoto Century Hotel. The lobby smells quite strongly of cigarette smoke, but that's just about the only thing I didn't quite like about the place. Firstly, its location is wonderful, being right next to both the bus and train stations. This hotel is a perfect base for exploring Kyoto or making... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and we were thoroughly impressed with the location. Literally a 2 minute walk to the impressive Kyoto station and the endless shops and places to eat (please make sure you visit the food court and fresh food market on the basement levels-you will not be disappointed!) The rooms are tidy and well kept -... More

Dear Melissa D; Greetings from Kyoto! Thank you very much for choosing our hotel and sharing your experience here. We are very lucky being right next to Kyoto station.

Nice hotel near Kyoto train station. Convenient location, comfortable room,.....BUT, definitely request a room on the side of the hotel away from the train tracks! Otherwise, you will be awakened every minute by the trains starting their early morning commutes. Breakfast buffet a must!

Dear 123DDS; Thank you very much for choosing us and taking your time to write a nice review! We are east next to Kyoto station, so we have a very convenient location to reach anywhere inside and outside of Kyoto city easily. But being so close to the railway, the noise of the trains might bother you a little. Small... More

Dear MonChateau; Thank you very much for leaving your comment. It's nice to hear that you liked the design of our lobby and restaurants. They were remodeled about two years ago. The huge lamp is decorated with "Nishijin-ori" Kyoto's traditional weaved silk. If you look at it carefully, you'll notice that its motifs are the bon fires in the five... More
