It feels a cop out just titling this good location, but after a long day and a trip on the Shinkansen, a hotel close to the station is great. The shopping centre in between has a whole floor full of restaurants and at one point from the lift, we saw two Bullet trains at the station but unfortunately did not... More

Rooms pinched and décor tired, queues at reception, long waits in the morning for the lift, this hotel is saved by its location - though even this is the wrong side of the station....anything you would want to visit is the other side of Kyoto Station which is of course very fine but a long way to cross. Unfortunately, we... More

Limited English spoken here.No concierge. However close to Kyoto station and downstairs is the Keihan Regular Tour Bus company where you can book tours with credit card. Had i known that the Keihan bus also serves Kansai airport directly, I would have taken this route to the hotel from Kansai airport.By train you have to lug your own luggage to... More

Located next to Kyoto station this hotel is easy to find and is in a great location from which to explore Kyoto. As I was on a business trip I stayed in a single room - which was quite compact - but it was clean and the bed was comfortable. I only stayed one night so can't do a more... More

I fully enjoyed this hotel in Kyoto. We stayed here two nights as a part of a Japan tour and was very happy with it. Great room, great bathroom, location is excellent, very close to station and lots of shopping options nearby. Highly recommended.

The room rates are quite good considering that breakfast is thrown in plus its close proximity to Kyoto Station. However most of the things in the room are quite ancient. I wanted to cry when I saw a pathetic -looking thing supposedly a kettle (very mini, never seen in any other hotels) in our triple room. It will take ages... More

The previous reviewer has already given helpful and comprehensive instructions to get to the hotel. It was worth it to get the breakfast option from agoda. I made a double booking unwittingly and didn't even realise my boo-boo until the hotel notified me. Extremely extremely thankful that I was able to cancel my booking without any penalty and got back... More

Kyoto was our second city after having spend 3 days in Tokyo (our other stops included Osaka, Hiroshima, Miyajima, and Gunma). After reading mixed reviews about Hotel Keihan on Tripadvisor, I was pleasantly surprised to find the hotel exceeded my expectations. The hotel is... More

And that's about it. Dated, smoky, just looked dirty and may have been. A real let-down after Hotel Niwa in Tokyo. The 2 good things about the hotel were: 1) location - right across the street from Kyoto Station and 2) the Staff was very nice. It was convenient, with underground connection to the station Mall and other shopping. Three... More
