The hotel is centrally located in Kyoto, close to subways and the famous Nishi Market and the shopping areas. It is about two subway stops away from the Nijo Castle and the Imperial Garden. Room size is decent with a nice lobby. My room charge included breakfast, which has a good variety of foods. The restaurant right next to the... More

Confortable rooms, quite big for japanese standard and very well situated, just a few meters of a metro station (karasumaoike). But probably its best point is the kindness of all the service: they help you when you want send or receive luggage (ta-q-bin), they give you valuables indications or they give you a healthy dosage of Japanese salutes. Finally, I... More

Mitsui Garden Hotel Sanjo is well located within easy walking distance of the Kamo River and main shopping precinct. Surrounded by many cafes and restaurants. It is also within convenient reach of some of the main historical temples and districts( eg Gion and Ponto-chō). Around a 10-15 min taxi ride from the main rail station. The room we stayed in...

Whenever you book a hotel check your mode of transportation there and out. Unfortunately I bought a day pass bus ticket 500 yen at the info center that covers more of Kyoto than the subway but unfortunately bad for this hotel. All the bus routes from Kyoto station on Karasuma dori, the main drag, up towards the hotel diverges at... More

This is a good clean hotel, that is less than a 5 minute walk to the subway station. Being from Canada, it seemed like it was down alley, but it turned out to be a busy, but narrow street, that has many restaurants, and a few shops on it. The room was clean, and a bit on the small size.... More

Room - It is a bit small. Once you place a luggage in the room, it seems like not much space left in the room. Hygiene level - Top notch. The staff cleans the room at very high standard. Very impressive. WiFi - we stayed connected every where we go in the hotel. Service: Very friendly and helpful in general.... More

The Mitsui Garden Hotel in Kyoto is in a great location - less than 15 minutes walking from Shijo Castle, and about 10 minutes from the nearest metro station. The hotel is very clean and the service provided is top-notch. The breakfast buffet provided great variety and quality, while the room was very comfortable.

My jap. friend found this hotel with shinkansen promo. for 20.000 yen which was so cheap, so i had no expectations. But it's such a nice hotel! The room was great, comfortable, and it had everything, and it has a great bath with view to a small garden. It's not traditional but it is very comfortable :) I liked it... More

As I say, rooms a bit small but all very nicely appointed and with helpful staff. Bonus is that they have a fake onsen (in the sense it's not natural springs but heated water feeding into a sort of super jacuzzi). But very welcome in winter, and has a pleasant view onto a little dry garden. Good restaurants nearby, and... More
