We needed a room with 3 beds that wasn’t too pricey next to the station to catch JR trains using the rail pass and found a room here that fit the bill. We’ve stayed here before and found it very convenient when taking JR trains to Nara, Osaka, Kobe and Hiroshima. Nothing changed on this 2nd time around. The station... More

I chose to upgrade the room for wider space. And I like it very much. Buffet is good. Lots of variety. I really enjoy my time inside the hotel. No need eating outside some how. The room is clean nicely provided with toiletries, plugs and hangers. Good for having a rest every trip of mine from Osaka to Tokyo.

We've stayed in this hotel at March 2012 during my sister's visit to Japan. It was a holiday season thus the price was higher than usual but we were lucky to find a free room here. The best thing with this hotel is its location. It is only a few minutes walk from the Kyoto Station. You can easily take... More

Stayed at Kyoto Century Hotel for 2 nights in early December. The hotel is located very near the Kyoto train station (which is just opposite Kyoto Tower) although it is not visible at the Central Exit ("Exit"). Turn right at the Exit and walk about 150m. This hotel is absolutely value for money with excellent service. Paid less than USD80... More

Just a couple of minutes away from the Kyoto station this hotel is easy on the pocket and a revelation for the mind. The buffet breakfast, whether Japanese or European/American, is sumptuous. All the hot spots in Kyoto are nearby and the hotel is well connected by all modes of transport. Though in the middle of a bustling city, noise... More

A very old hotel located next to Kyoto Station, very convenient and accessible to food and shopping. The entrance may not be easy to find initially as it was hidden at the side road next to the station. You will have to walk out of Kyoto Station from second floor facing Kyoto Tower and turn right (when facing Kyoto Tower)... More

Stayed in this hotel SEPTEMBER-OCTOBER 2011 (have only just set up Trip Advisor account). We chose this hotel due to its reasonable price and close proximity to central train station. Nice hotel room, comfortable beds, great location. We took a tour out to Nara for a day (which was great) and tour bus left from nearby.
