Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

This is a really great place to stay. An easy train ride from Kyoto station and then a walk (which we did) or a short taxi ride from the station to the reception at the bridge at the town’s edge. Then a beautiful ferry ride up the river to the hotel. The staff were fantastic. The hotel is so calm and beautiful and the service perfect. It’s an easy 15 minute walk back to town if you want to go back. The views are superb. Definitely recommend this to everyone

Hotel's Favorite
The Hoshinoya Kyoto was the first Hoshinoya we stayed on during our trip. Fantastic service by staff, beautiful location, amazing room with perfect picture views - we had a great view of the river and admired Cranes, turtles, boats and trains all from the living area! Great food and matched wine & sake. A great opportunity to relax, Thank you!

Perfect place for 1 night : Check-point on 'mainland' is extremely luxurious, 10 minutes boat ride is like a dream, hotel situation along the river is marvellous. But hospitality is then strict and boring. Do not expect an AMAN style experience : Hoshinoya is a nothing else than a costly hotel, where do do not feel like home.

The whole experience upon arrival, from the boat ride to the greetings, was breathtaking and unlike anything I have ever experienced before. The view, cleanliness, and tranquility of the hotel was 10/10. The service was superb. After arrival to the hotel, the staff took us to our room and pointed out the garden and bar on the way. It would have helped if staff were more informative of the amenities at the hotel. Unfortunately, it wasn’t until our stay was coming to an end, that we found a Japanese game room, massage service, morning zen medication, and other activities that I would have loved to experience during our stay. Overall, we were very pleased and had a memorable experience. Thank you Hoshinoya Kyoto for making our journey one to remember

The nice boat ride to the resort's landing, greeted by many courteous staff set the tone. Quiet and tranquil, this property is meant for relaxation. The in-room morning Japanese and western English breakfasts were an amazing melange of tastes. A must go.
