The Hearton Hotel in Kyoto is a well-known tourist and business hotel, and a favorite with tour groups of Japanese school kids. This makes for a somewhat chaotic scene in the lobby, but even so, our four-night stay was a great experience.
The rooms are small, as they are in most Japanese hotels, but still about the size of the guest room in our house. Comfortable bed, sensational plumbing, and excellent service. I wish the front desk people spoke better English, but they were unfailingly polite and extremely helpful.
You can’t beat the location, either. The hotel is three subway stops north of the main train terminal, and the subway station is almost right outside the door. It’s a few blocks from a huge covered shopping area, and another very trendy shopping center located in an old school building. There are convenience stores and restaurants galore, all within a 5 to 10-minute walk.
The breakfast buffet (not included in the room rate) is reasonable, and offers a complete selection of both Western and Japanese items. Overall, a great value and excellent hotel experience.
