I’ll be quite honest, our first impressions when we arrived (by Coach from Kobe) was that it was underwhelming, dull and uninspiring, nor as large as we had expected, and in a fairly unremarkable Residential area. Kyoto was afterall The Capital of Japan (where the Emperor lived from 794 until 1868) and it was spared the worst of the bombing during World War II, due to its History, grandeur and splendour. Inside was quite a different story – modern, airy, massive atrium dominated the centre with Rooms, on each of 4 sides. Rooms were quite large, twin-beds pushed together to form a Double-Bed. Clean well-appointed and equipped, and we slept very well. Breakfast was good, but in a rather small and quite crowded area, so the Buffet demanded a lot of maneuvering round each other and the staff, who could not keep up with refreshing items that had run-out. Central to the ground floor was a Lounge wherein they also served drinks and snacks. We (4/5) sat there once whilst waiting for our 40+ people Coach to arrive. “No Drink, No Food, No Seat” - we unceremoniously were ordered out. Not a good move – to alienate 40 Guests in one move. An impromptu boycott followed The Hotel is due West of the Imperial Palace, so great Location for that, but their Courtesy Bus was well-used for folks wanting to go into the City, or take Buses to visit Tourist attractions etc, or obviously one could take a Taxi. There really was almost nothing in its vicinity, by way of Supermarkets, Restaurants nor Bars. We ate elsewhere every night, but IN the City Centre proper – see above. They had Restaurants, but they were way too expensive for our tastes/Budgets, so we could not Comment/Review them. We returned to Kyoto (our favourite Japanese City) nearly 4 weeks later, but this time stayed in a different Hotel, right in the heart of the City, where we spent tens of thousands of Yen in one night in their Bar.

A grand hotel with a great entrance, gorgeous interior and very attentive friendly staff. We were in a room near the elevator but it was very quiet. The room was large with plenty of room for the cot and for the baby to play in. Bath tub was enormous and filled quickly. Was a bit disappointed with the breakfast buffet as it was a limited selection and most of the food wasn’t covered so when other guests are coughing (particularly with the cooler weather in November) in the buffet area it’s a bit deterring. Location wise, hotel is a bit of a cab ride from Kyoto station and a walk to restaurants and other sights. We walked to the children’s playground at the old palace which is a quiet and very tranquil. We took taxis to most attractions.

This is the 2nd time I stayed in this business hotel. Spent 2 nights here. The room was clean and in good size. I felt very comfortable and had good sleep here. For breakfast, I felt Japanese breakfast is better than their western. If I do come back to Kyoto, I would like to stay here again.

Stayed here with a group of gardeners and it is difficult to find any fault with any aspect of our stay. Perfectly appointed, comfortable rooms with every convenience and amenity. Reception area a pleasure to be in and all staff were helpful and efficient. Breakfast was a joy and we enjoyed an excellent dinner on the evening we arrived. A quiet area of Kyoto very near to the wonderful Imperial Palace Gardens and some interesting restaurants.

Lovely quiet 5 star hotel, away from the hustle and bustle. Service was exceptional and rooms larger than most experienced in Japan. Shuttle bus runs short distance to station and 5 minute walk to imperial palace and gardens. Very relaxing stay.
