I have actually not much to complain about the hotel:
The check-in was quick and the staff really helpful.
The room was spatious and we were allowed to stay there with all our children (aged 5, 10 and 12) if we paid for an extra bed. A part from schampoo etcetera in the bathroom we got a kit that was supposed to make us sleep better (including tea, something to put on your eyes and some more) which felt generous.
The breakfast was great, so much to choose from. But it was obvious that the breakfast room was way too small. We came different times every morning but still we had to wait 5-15 minutes to get a table. The hotel really should do something about that!
Ana Crowne has a free shuttle to and from the train station. Really convenient! But the location is not so good. It is close to the lovely Ninjo Castle but otherwise you have to take a taxi where ever you want to go. There are almost no restaurants in the neighbourhood.
One evening we used to swimming pool - and we had to pay a lot to do that! I think that is the first time ever in a hotel that I - as a guest - have had to pay. And there was nothing special or fancy with the pool.
For us the price was OK since we could stay in one room all five, but otherwise I don't think the hotel is priceworthy. I would recommend you to pick another hotel with a better price and with a better location.

- The ANA Hotel Kyoto looks almost out of place with its modern exterior nestled amongst the sublime beauty and historic grandeur of Japan s old capital. This however belies the traditional hospitality and classic atmosphere to be experienced within her four walls. ... more less
