We were very pleased with the Kyoto Brighton Hotel. I read reviews saying that the location was not good. While it wasn't central, it was a 10 minute walk to the nearest subway, and the hotel provides a shuttle to the nearest subway that provides connections that are necessary to travel around the city. The rooms are spacious, the amenities more than adequate, and the staff, who may not all speak English, are very helpful and friendly. We had no problems with communication, although our Japanese is non-existent. My only complaints are that the cost of the restaurant food is prohibitive by North American standards, and that the shuttle bus service stops too early. Other than that, this is one of the best hotel experiences that we have had, and we travel a lot.
