Overall a rather decent hotel and appears to be popular with Japanese tourists. Location wise it is very convenient as it is located across from Kyoto Station with access to JR lines and the local metro (via an underpass) and right next door to a mall (Avanti). For those using the Google Maps app on their phones, beware that the... More

Not much to complain about but not much to rave about either. The hotel is easy to locate but trying to check-in/check-out/ask the reception questions takes quite a while as there seems to always be a long queue. Room is quiet and clean.

Located across the street from the main train and bus station along with many shops and restaurant, it is easy to find. Not too many attractions, but the subway is a few minutes walk from the hotel. Room was a triple with very limited space. Wifi is on and off. Skip the restaurants in the hotel, very overpriced, and get... More

Some reviewers say that this hotel room is not clean, in my case, the room was clean and the size of the room was average compared to other Kyoto hotels of the same grade.This hotel is not business hotel, but regarding entertainment, it is not satisfactory.Instead, next to the hotel, there is a big shopping mall, Avanti, which has many...

This hotel was in a convenient location but lacked in the usual exceptional customer service that is expected of the Japanese hospitality industry. They had several greeters but only two people working at the reception desk so the check-in/check out line was long. They will charge you $20/hour for checking in early. You have to leave your key at the... More

We found this hotel to be in a good location and only minutes from the station.The room was not small by Japanese standards as I think the people who have commented on this have never stayed in a APA hotel. The breakfast was adequate and had plenty of choice for our needs.The hotel what we saw of it was clean... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodating and allowed us to leave our luggage before check-in. The rooms were a good size for Japanese hotel rooms and the bathroom amenities were very clean & spacious. My husband loved this hotel and how close it was to the station.

When you're in a city like Kyoto all you need is a place to sleep and the Keihan Hotel does just fine. For the price you can't beat the location next to Kyoto Station, and if you are hungry there are lots of dining options on-site and in the adjacent department store Avanti, and a 7-11 convenience store with ATM....

The rooms are small, which is normal for Japan. My wife, daughter and I all squeezed into one room with 3 twin beds. Two of the beds were extra firm, but the third felt like a board, so we used it to open our suitcases and my wife and I shared one twin bed. If not for the 3rd bed,... More
