We really loved this place. We stayed here with two other couples who'd booked separately. While the two other couples had managed to get cheaper room rates, they had older style rooms. Still nice but reflective of the cheaper rate. Our room was a bit more expensive but pretty much brand new, decorated tastefully in a Japanese theme (lovely western... More

We loved the style of the Kyoto Brighton Hotel. It has a traditional Japanese design, right down to the matcha tea in your room. The staff are super friendly and will help you out a lot! You can walk to major temples and gardens, but the MRT station is a bit more of a walk than I expected. There's free... More

This was by far the best hotel we stayed at in Japan. It is a large hotel and beautiful. The decor of the rooms are modern Japanese style. It felt new and so clean - I don't understand the previous comment of "1980's old!" They are huge rooms by Japanese standards. The hotel staff were superb and very helpful -... More

We loved our stay. Extra large room. We had a triple room which had 2 VERY large singles pushed together, plus a slightly smaller roll away bed and still had a medium size table and lounge at the end. Plenty of room to open our cases. Free water and newspaper every day. The hotel is located away from the centre... More

Really good service from the reception staff to porterage. The rooms are really large, not just for Japan but in general. The bathrooms are large wet rooms with bath and separate dual head shower, good toiletries provided. Dressing gowns and slippers included, good fresh coffee maker in the room as well as range of quality Japanese teas....this really is a... More

We were very disappointed with our stay here. The hotel has a very corporate feel, and is very outdated decor wise. The location isn't great though the hotel provides a shuttle bus to a more central location and that is handy. The room was big, clean, with a comfy bed, but very old fashioned, like 1980s old fashioned. The bathroom... More

The hotel itself is great. The rooms are spacious, clean, and have nice amenities. The bathroom was really nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. However, there is literally nothing nearby, and the restaurants inside the hotel are very expensive. The hotel provides a free shuttle bus to the karasume-oike subway station, which helps, but is still out of... More

Nice hotel, close to the imperial palace and only need to get taxi about 1200 yen into main part of downtown. Rooms are large, food is good and it's a very quiet hotel at night. We enjoyed cake in the afternoon and the set menus at night. The only thing that let it down was discount cards they give you... More

We have just spent six days at the Kyoto Brighton Hotel and loved our experience. The hotel is beautiful, the room spacious and most comfortable, and the staff could not be any more gracious than they were. Every person we encountered was incredibly polite and helpful. While the hotel is a bit removed from central Kyoto, it provides a very... More

We stayed at this hotel from 28 May to 30 May 2016. The hotel is situated in a quiet neighborhood of the Imperial palace of Kyoto. The room was very good and spacious. The staff was very courteous and could speak English. The hospitality and service was good. The highlight was the concierge services- Ms Sakai San was really helpful.... More

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighborhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
