Room was clean and was good for the price. The location is awesome. Very convenient to go anywhere in Kyoto. Front desk customer service staff were excellent. Especially Mori. She was very helpful and friendly. The only issue we have is with a staff member (Kudo) who wasn't very helpful at all. He didn't seem like he wanted to assist... More

Stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June. Rooms are very small and I have a bigger closet at home than the bathroom in this hotel. Hotel needs upgraded, carpets and furniture are all stained. However the hotel has a great location and is very good value for money. The staff although very helpful really struggle with their... More

My friends and I stayed here while in Kyoto because it was one of the cheapest options and advertised that it was just outside of the Kyoto Station. We were amazed to see how close it really was. If you go through the underground mall, you can come up to street level right in front of the hotel. So the... More

Across from the magnificent train station with its wonderful architecture, shops, light show, this could be a winner. But Internet was so sporadic, so unreliable thar hotel is unacceptable. There are many more in the area that it's really not necessary to put up with the frustrations and inconvenience re the Internet Breakfast is ok but we had far better... More

The Hotel Keihan Kyoto is one of a number of hotels that are located along the south side of the Kyoto Station. It is a typical business hotel in the sense that the rooms are very small by western standards. The rooms are ~3m wide (~9.5 ft) with a double bed against one wall and a one person bathroom. The...

This is a pretty old hotel that its age is evident in its smell and look. However, their hospitality makes up for it. Their staff are really accommodating and their rooms are very clean. The location is also perfect because it's right across the train station and at the same building with the mall.

Part of g adventures group. Big faceless hotel with clean rooms and comfy beds. Lobby is done up and it's pretty nice now. It's was in a brilliant location right next to station and all that had to offer. Room bigger than most I have stayed in Japan. Not got a very big bathroom at all but it's ok. Staff... More

If convenience is what you're after, this is the place. It's a fine place, nothing fancy and is right by Kyoto station. Get off the Shinkansen, and minutes later you're checking in. As you'll find in many Japanese hotels, the rooms are very small (to an American). Two adults in the room, with two pieces of luggage and we were... More

Unfortunately we've been signed on the floor that was not upgraded yet, just enough to check in to see the room and we decided to check out. Maybe next time when they completed I imagine the room will be as beautiful as the lobby. They supposed to mention to us when we check in for that situation, too bad.

I would never stay here again because of the service. The hotel itself is in a convenient location across the street from the Kyoto station. Rooms are well appointed with a kettle and instant coffee/tea; shampoos/lotions and clean. However, the wifi did not work at all from 5pm until 7am the next morning on any floor or lobby and this...
