We stayed for three nights and found this a nice choice for the area. The hotel is equal to a Courtyard with a Japan modern interior. Nothing fancy, but very pleasant and the room was closer to western sizes. We had a double twin room, and found when we arrived that they had set the beds together to form a... More

Clean hotel, standard for travelers, suitable for value for money, nothing outstanding. Located in city center on one of main streets, close to shopping area, close to subway but there are no bus stop near hotel. Walking destination (15-20 minutes) to Nijo Castle. Well-known market is 10-15 minutes walking through narrow streets with some traditional houses and many cafes. The... More

The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was a reasonable size and comfortable for the price. The subway station was only a few minutes walk and there are restaurants and a Starbucks just on the doorstep. It is a bit more of a hike to Gion but walkable.

I have stayed at another Mitsui chain hotel in Japan, and this one in Kyoto provides the same reliable level of comfort and service. The rooms are basic, but well appointed. The location is excellent, as it is near both subway lines in Kyoto and within walking distance to many restaurants. I enjoyed my stay for 4 nights. Staff were... More

We really liked this hotel.. The location was great, the staff very friendly.. We shared a room for three people and the room was spacious. Very clean.. The breakfast was good as well, i believe it wasn't included.. But it was good, it had a little bit of everything!

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
