I normally stick to 4-5 star hotel chains but there’s not a lot around Kyoto station so we tried The Thousand due to its location and good reviews. The photos in Tripadvisor are not bad either. When we got there, we were very pleased that everything is way better than the photos. The staff are helpful, and the room we stayed in was clean and more than comfortable. Highly recommend this hotel!

The iPad in the room was your personal assistant. It controlled the lights and curtains. It had an room service / housekeeping feature so you could get refills for coffee, fresh towels. The entrance can be a little confusing the first time. KEEP LEFT. If you go right you'll end up in a neighbouring hotel where they will kindly escort you to the correct location.

This hotel is undoubtedly the best in Kyoto. I am a frequent traveller to Japan, and I often stay for a while. Whilst I mainly stay in Tokyo (the Princes Gallery and Peninsula are unmissable) I always make a trip to Kyoto. I tried the Thousand for the first time in 2019 (winter). I chose a large room with a private terrace balcony. Firstly, the whole aesthetic of those hotel is wonderful - very slim, modern and clean. True to Japanese style, it is a wonderful mix of futuristic/modern with traditional Japanese elements. The foyer has an amazing feature/artwork installed. The staff are excellent, welcoming and have excellent English skills (although they were happy to suffer my limited Japanese). The room was spacious, airy and well lit. Very clean. The bathroom was also well stocked and luxurious. The shower and bath were particularly good. I really recommend the private terrace rooms. There is a large private terrace with seating and it is nicely lit. The building is designed so that each balcony/outdoor area is extremely private. The room comes with a tablet that controls all the lights and air conditioning. The room service food was exceptional. I will probably always stay here in future when I visit Kyoto. I stayed for 5 days and it was far too short a visit. すごい!和食は美味いと思います。僕の部屋は大きくてとても綺麗でした。一番ホテルに京都。(私の日本語は下手です!)
