“Accor Advantage card not valid for dining :(”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Generally, this hotel location is very strategic because it is located in front of Kyoto Central Station. Therefore, it is easier for people especially tourist to access everywhere. The room quite small, but it is comfortable for sleeping. In addition, the bathroom is also very small.
Some of front desk officer are not too polite and cannot speak English fluently. Our bad experience is that Accor Advantage card can't be used as discount card for dining. We thought that every hotels in Accor network have the same benefits. Why this hotel has exceptions? This problem make us really disappointed.
The funny thing is, some of the staff in front desk and restaurant never saw Accor Advantage card. Thus, it is very weird as an Accor Hotels. For an advice, it is better for the hotel to give information about the Accor card benefits in the official website.

Room Tip: If you want a quite room, better choose high level.

Literally across the road from the station! Could not ask for a better location. Rooms are nice and well appointed. Lots of places to eat near by. Parking was quite close for the hotel. Staff were really friendly and laundry service was excellent.

I stayed here with my family for 5 nights last spring and we all fell in love with this charming hotel. We booked 2 rooms and enjoyed the hotel's comfort, cleanliness and amazing location right across the Kyoto station; where from our bedroom windows, we could watch the Shinkansen trains whipping past every few minutes.

Not only that, we could just walk to the many restaurants, marts and cafes down the street, or catch a taxi right at the station's entrance just across the road.

Loved the shower and the bath gel and shampoos that were provided too. Heavenly scents! Such comfortable beds too.

Thank you, Ibis Styles Kyoto, for making our stay so amazing! We will surely return.

Dear Mimi K,

I appreciate you passing on your positive comments regarding your stay with us.
I was thrilled to read that you fell in love with our hotel. We are very close to many fine restaurants and shopping areas with the added bonus of Kyoto station just outside the hotel making it easy to get around as needed.

We definitely look forward to your return.

Kind regards,

We only stayed in this hotel for one night while in transit back through Kyoto. The rooms are quite small but did not feel as claustrophobic as some of the other hotels that we stayed in in Japan. Everything was spotlessly clean and the service was very efficient and friendly.
It is perfectly situated for Kyoto station, and you can walk from the Shinkansen lines to this hotel in about a minute! All in all we thought it good value for money by Kyoto standards.

Stayed here for three nights.

It is just in front of Kyoto Station Higashi Exit. One can easily spot it through the large windows of the station if you exit from Kintetsu platform or JR Shinkansen platform.

Room is clean, comfy and not too small. Staff speaks better English compare to most Japanese Hotels I stayed at. Check in was fast and smooth.

There's a Japanese Style fast food eatery just nearby which opens 24 hours.

I had a two night stay at this hotel in the beginning of April 2014.

Quite new hotel and excellent, modern room with good soundproofing and air condition. Bed was good to sleep (hard mattress). My room was not very huge and view from room was not very nice. But I had a great stay there.

Location of this hotel is quite good, just opposite of Kyoto station and Shinkansen bullet train. It is little bit far from the Kyoto night life area and from city centre. But for me the location was perfect. You can reach commercial centre of the city very easily by subway.

Clean modern hotel with great service. I recommend.

Stayed during our trip to Japan, we passed by from Tokyo and stop at Kyoto for 1 night before moving on to Osaka. Got recommended by our agent here in Thailand, so we book it and it was such a perfect place to stay. It was very convenient for us to roam around the city as the hotel is just 1 minute from the train station (just across the street), we were able to put our stuff back to the hotel and continue our journey with no hassel. Breakfast was great, and the rooms are clean and bigger than the one in Tokyo with similar price.
Pros:-
- Location
- Good breakfast
- Room is spacious

Room Tip: choose a twin bed is slightly bigger than a king bed
