Stayed here for one night in September. Good location close to the station, easy walk once I had some directions. 2pm check-in meant that our rooms were not ready as we arrived at 12, didn't really matter, I guess it shows the hotel was busy. Room was pretty average, a bit tired in regards to the décor, but it was... More

Hate to rain on the parade of positive reviews here, but we didn't really like this place at all. The location is good - just across from Kyoto station. Service was good also, but good service isn't all that hard to find in Japanese hotels. The hotel is aged and not necessarily in a good way... the keys aren't even... More

I booked a triple room thru Japanican at a good rate. It was very easy to find from the train station. We arrived from a kintetsu Train, followed the commuters out of the station, turned right, the hotel is at the end of the station, after crossing the small sreet. Upon arrival, we were confused, went straight from the entrance... More

Thanks for making our stay so good. Our room was roomy and clean. The front desk staff were informative and very friendly. The breakfast and evening meals, though expensive , covered a wide range of choices. The hotel is situated so ideally close to the train and bus stations making your stay enjoyable.

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

Dear Stefanino San; Thank you very much for choosing us for your business trip! It is very handy to be located east next to Kyoto Station. 30 minutes ride on JR limited express will take you to Osaka, and 1 hour to Kobe. To Shijyo Karasuma, center of the business area in Kyoto, it takes only 5 minutes by subway.... 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...
