The hotel is situated at the end of the Karasuma line, next to a small lake and close to the Mt. Hiei cable car. The rooms are very large for Japan; mine had a rgeat view of the mountainside. The receptionists and the concierge were extremely helpful in every respect. Where the hotel falls short are (1) the rates which... More

This hotel is most apt for people visiting kyoto for the ICC. The ICC is right opposite the hotel but due to the huge size of the hotel, it is apprx 15 min walk. The metro station is at a stone's throw and it is a 20 min metro ride to the Kyoto railway station. Opt for twin beds as... More

I cant tell you how peaceful and relaxing it is to stay in this beautiful hotel. I enjoy the scenary of the trees from my hotel window. I feel like living in the middle of a well maintained garden. The hotel is within walking distances to the subway station and other convenience shops.

We were there for a week at a conference and this hotel was perfect for that. The rooms are spacious with a sitting area at the windows looking out on greenery. Beds were great; bathroom large; plenty of cupboard and drawer space. Daily waters in the room would have been nice in the 90 degree heat. Only nearby restaurants were... More

The hotel is away from Kyoto but a short 20 minute train ride. The small area surrounding it is pleasant and one has the feel of close to Kyoto but not in the center. It is filled with gracious people as is typical of Japan. Going to the supermarket close by is an experience not to be missed.

The hotel is situated away from town. Near conference centre. Less then 5 minutes walk. Surrounded by the lots of greenery and mountains. Very peaceful location. The tube station is very near that takes you straight in to the town. The rooms on Royal floor are better. In general rooms are specious but some of the floors have a bit... More

It's a wonderfully designed, if concrete structure, around a central garden. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, if a little faded. It is extremely convenient for the conference centre, but nothing else. The main problem is that the restaurants close down at 8 o'clock in the evening. Of course you can catch taxis or the metro into town, but... More

Staying in Northern Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Northern Kyoto
Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.
