4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Any trip to Kyoto is either made or lost depending on your base while you stay, with so much to see in a wide area being close to the main transport hub is an essential part of your visit. The Dai-Ni Tower Hotel is perfectly located right next to the main JR Kyoto Station (an attraction in its own right), its quite a busy place because of that fact alone so reservations are essential if you want to stay here. The rooms are spacious and functional with all the standard amenities you would expect in any Japanese hotel (Japanese style rooms are also available) and at the price I thought it was good value.

Very well located near Kyoto station. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to a suite which was very spacious although décor is a bit outdated. Handy 'vending corner' selling water, beer and ice-cream - perfect at the end of a night out! The staff were helpful and you get a free trip up the Kyoto tower which is worth doing first to get your bearings. Didn't eat at the hotel so can't comment on the food but there are lots of very good restaurants in the station complex.

The best of the hotels we stayed in in Japan. Slightly larger rooms as we chose to have a twin room but still no room for cases. Breakfast not included, expensive and limited choices so we ate elsewhere. Great position a very short walk to the station, which included shopping and restaurants. The hotel was clean and the staff were quite helpful, I would stay there again.
p.s. japan has the coolest toilets on the planet!

The service and location were excellent. It was very close to Kyoto Station were you can take buses to all the temples. The breakfast was also great it was a buffet style breakfast with a lot of different choices I really enjoyed the rice and fish dishes. The bed was a bit small for me since I am tall but it was comfortable. The room was a bit small but that is normal for Japan.
I recommend staying in this hotel it was very enjoyable.

The hotel is 2 blocks close to the Kyoto Station (subway, train and buses), which makes it perfect to go around to the touristic places. They are also part of the Kyoto Tower hotel chain and we have been given 2 tickets to visit the Kyoto tower for free saving us around 8 dollars each.
The hotel is not new but very well maintained, the service is very good but the rooms are a little small, specially the bathroom. It looks like you are in those cruise ship rooms. Bottom line, it is a very nice hotel if you plan to visit Kyoto because of its location.
