We enjoyed our three nights at the Hyatt Regency very much. We also loved Kyoto! The decor was unusual but very striking, especially in the bedrooms. The hotel was comfortable and the staff polite and helpful, as of course they are throughout Japan. The hotel was a longish walk from the Gion area, and the centre of town, but it was an enjoyable walk along the river and only a short taxi ride. Of course it was the middle of the cherry blossom season so the whole of Kyoto was busy.
Our only gripe about the hotel is that we had to queue for breakfast. The Japanese breakfast restaurant downstairs (which ONLY offered a set Japanese menu) was almost empty, but there was a queue for the western one. It was a shame they couldn't compromise a bit. And the service at breakfast was slow. We also didn't particularly like the downstairs bar, again the service was quite slow and there was the ever present cigarette smoke! We never could quite come to terms with the fact that the fastidiously clean Japanese put up with smoking in bars and restaurants. All in all a good stay though.
