The best part of this hotel is the location - virtually at the train station! The staff were friendly and the room was quite spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed our stay. It was quite a convenient location to find your way around the city. Recommend a trip to Hiroshima while visiting. An easy day trip & well worth it.

We stayed 6 nights in Kyoto and stayed for the first 3 in this hotel due to its location close to the train station (one minute by foot from the main entrance) for our day-trips (Nara, Osaka, Himeji). It was a very good choice. The price was low for the location and the staff really wants to help. (some of... More

It was quite a hilarious rainy noon when we arrived at JR Kyoto Station--because we had a hard time locating the hotel when it's actually just sitting behind us. Anyhow, when we finally set foot on the grounds of this classy hotel, we were instantly awed by the refined manners of all the hotel staff. From the door to the... More

Conveniently located right next to Kyoto Station and is a very good base for you to explore Kyoto. Reasonably priced and all staff speak excellent English. The view wasn't the best from our room, but you'll probably be out exploring and come back to their comfortable beds!

We needed several rooms for the peak hanami period in Kyoto and the Century Hotel was one of the few options we had at the time. However, we found that this hotel proved to be a great choice. The location is close to the main Kyoto train station, and most easily accessible from the Kyoto tower side of the station... More

Dear Japan Custom Tours, Thank you very much for writing such a glowing review about your experience. It was very lucky for us to be able to accommodate your group during the cherry blossoms season. The "Hanami" and autumn colored leaves are two highest touristic seasons in Kyoto. We are glad that you were fond of our room decor. The... More

This is the best hotel we've stayed at in Kyoto by far. Being right at the end of the station forecourt it is so convenient for the bus station and the great selection of dining options in the station precincts. We booked a Comfort Superior Twin room for ten days which was huge by Japanese standards and so comfortable and... More

Dear Jan H, Thank you very much for choosing our hotel and taking the time to share your experience. We are so glad to know that you enjoyed our breakfast. Due to the ongoing reconstruction work, the Japanese restaurant "Rantei" is closed in the morning until mid September. Therefore we provide much more improved and sumptuous buffet at all day...

I am so satisfied with the stay here. We checked in early. And the staff was so friendly to help us with the luggage, so we could just start our journeys without our heavy luggage and the hotel would just send our luggage to our room. And there were three of us , we stayed in a double room with... More

I wish I had stayed here a few more nights instead of another hotel. The large buffet breakfast was delicious. The room was way more spacious than the 3 other hotels I stayed in and the bed was much more comfortable than any others. The room was very clean. It's a 2 minute walk to the Kyoto train station.

Dear Maiye, Thank you very much for being such a nice guest. We sincerely appreciate the time you took to write this detailed review. The huge Buddhist temple you mentioned must be Higashihonganji. It is one of the biggest wooden buildings in Japan, and its tiled roof is magnificent! They open around 6am every day (depending on the season), so... More
