Conveniently located just a block off the subway station and within a few blocks walk to Nishiki market, with a nice onsen bath on the top floor and clean comfortable rooms. We emailed the hotel asking them to make dinner reservations for us and they responded right away with clarifications and made the booking within the next hour. When we... More

Clean and relatively spacious room. Receptionists speaks fluently English and very hospitable and helpful. Easy access from the metro station. However, you might want to ask for another exit rather than "Exit 6" recommended by the hotel, if you carry big luggage as I did. BTW, breakfast is pleasant and enjoyable. I'll choose it again next time.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights to attend a conference at Kyoto International Convention centre. It was a very comfortable hotel and a very good location. Just 10-15 minute walk to the best nightlife neibourhoods of Kyoto and 5 min walk to the metro station. The staff are all very helpful and polite (like everywhere... More

This hotel is quite impressive on the inside! Rooms were smallish, but stylish and clean. What was a bit disappointing was that the coffee was not included, instead you had to pay for it on check out. The staff were are all very friendly and helpful, but most of the staff's English are extremely limited, which led to a few... More

We just returned from staying at this hotel in Kyoto and found it to be a lovely place to stay. The rooms were of a good size, the king size bed was huge (we could have slept diagonally in the bed!) and the location right in central Kyoto near a subway stop. I used the hotsprings as well located in... More

Excellent!!! I visit Monterey 2nd times.Last I visit Monterey UMEDA in 2008. I enjoy the excellent service quality at Monterey. Not only the location is very convinenable for customers,but also the price is kindly for the passenger. Just a little suggestion: If you can provide free coffee at lobby,It is wonderful. However,wish to visit again next time!!!

This very elegant hotel is closed to the shopping area so location is very good and also 10 minutes by taxi from Kyoto station. Hall, restaurant are very luxory. Rooms are nice: not amazing but comfy, quite huge for Japan standards and well equipped (hairdriers for women). Wi-fi available. Carpet on the floor, which I don't like, but clean room... More

I loved everything about this hotel. The location is great - close to many tourist attractions, restaurants and shopping areas, plus easy walking distance to subway and trains. The property itself is lovely. Upscale decor, spacious rooms, good service. We ordered champagne glasses to the room and they were delivered within 10 minutes. Staff were also happy to store our...

Hotel lobby is small and simple. Rooms are small and a bit outdated. Staff are friendly. If you lose your room key, you have to pay 1000 yen. It is a short walk to the bus stop and subway. We bought a 500 yen bus card that is unlimited for a day. This can be purchased at the front desk.

In general a good hotel. Rooms are a bit small for European standards. But I really have to complain about the staff. My girlfriend and I went to the Spa area. Actually the fact that there is a pool in the hotel was one of the main reasons why we booked the hotel. Unfortunately you have to pay extra every... More
