The Brighton exceeded our expectations with a big room (uncommon in Japan), terrific service, and four surprisingly good restaurants. It's a short walk to the old imperial palace which is definitely worth a visit. We used a cab and driver for the rest of our sightseeing to avoid the very hot August weather in Kyoto so the distance from sights... More

Kyoto Brighton is an elegantly designed hotel. It's located near the Old Palace, so it's a little bit far from anywhere else. The concierge will gladly give you the list of restaurants and shops nearby, but you will still have to walk to those places. At night it could be rather dark, but since we are a big group it's...

We stayed at this hotel for 5 days. Location is not good that it takes almost 10 min. by taxi to the downtown of Kyoto. But we stayed at there like staying in a resort hotel in a city. Only 5 min. walking to Old Palace of Japan and we hear only a chorus of cicada in a room. Good... More

The Brighton hotel is located very close to the Kyoto imperial palace. You can walk there in 5 minutes. The rooms are nice and big. Their service is good. My only gripe is that breakfast cost same as lunch at around $30 per person. I will stay there again.

Very friendly staff, great service and at a reasonable price. Rooms are large enough and have good quality furniture, minibar, AC, air purifier, three phones (desk, bathroom, bed), plugs in both nightstands to charge your phone, switches to turn on or off most lights in the room, etc. Bathroom is a bit on the smaller side but still has a...

My wife and I along with our 2 teenaged sons stayed here for 4 nights in July. The property is very nice with clean, spacious rooms. The staff are helpful and polite. The breakfast buffet is good but nothing special. The main downside we found was the hotel's location. It is in a quiet residential area but well away from... More

Customer service was excellent. Room and bathroom were considerably large for Japanese standards. Hotel is located in the middle of nowhere, but they provide a shuttle service to the nearest subway station. Overall, a great stay.

Hard to understand why the hotel was built far away from everything, there are not shopping or restaurants near by, Even though the hotel provides shuttle bus to subway station is not the best solution for the location.

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

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.
