This hotel is adjacent to the Kyoto train station and has several dining options within the hotel that provide very good food. The "new comfort twin room" was larger than most US hotel rooms excepting suites. The room amenities were equivalent or superior to US 4 star hotels. We had booked the Kyoto Granvia for 5 nights and opted for... More

We stayed at kyoto century for 2 nights. It only takes around 2-3minutes from kyoto station by walk. Very convenient to anywhere in/around kyoto. Special thanks to Yamazaki who helped us find our missing apple charging line. More than that, he delivered the stuff to Osaka by himself on the same day which really give us deep impression. We highly... More

Very close to the Kyoto station, it is convenient to go anywhere in Kyoto. Lobby was very nice but the carpet in my room was a bit dirty. I think they are trying to keep it clean but it is time for new carpet. I only ate breakfast there for two days and they were really good. I wish they... More

Right next to the main train station. Wonderful service at reception. I can only echo what everyone else has said. We stayed on one of the refurbished floors and the room was easily big enough for three adults. I would certainly recommend making this a base for visiting Kyoto. We didn't have the breakfast buffet, preferring to go to the... More

We stayed here for six nights.  What impressed us were not only the nice ambience, lovely breakfast buffet and accessibility, the staff there were very friendly and welcoming.  We asked a male staff regarding a bakery but he was worried that we couldn't find it.  Then the next day, he asked a Mandarin-speaking colleague to speak to us - what...

I picked this hotel as it was close to Kyoto station and convenient to catch the bus and subway for sight seeing. Staff were friendly but most had limited English. We were lucky to meet a lady staff member at the concierge desk who speak fluent English on our first day. She helped us with advise on public transport and... More

The location is central right next to the train station almost close where you get off from Shinkansen . Step away from all the buses you need to get to most places to see in Kyoto . for the value of what you pay for your money is excellent. Beautiful hotel. The photo on the internet doesn't do justice.

My husband and I stayed here last month during a holiday to Japan. We booked this hotel as it was a really good price and in a really good location. The rooms in the hotel are a bit outdated and worn looking but are clean. As other reviewers have said, the room had a rice cooker but no kettle, safe... More

Dear banda UK; Thank you very much for staying with us and sharing your opinion upon us. I'm afraid there might be some misunderstandings. We don't have any rice cookers in our guest rooms. Instead we have an electronic kettle and two types of Japanese tea (complimentary) prepared in every room. We can keep your valuables in the safety boxes... More

Right next to Kyoto station this hotel is great for getting around town and doing day trips to Nara & Osaka. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful. Would recommend this as a great place to stay.
