The hotel is in a quiet neighbourhood so if you are looking to be in the middle of the action in town, then look at other options as you are about 10mins from the station via taxi. The hotel is well kept and the staff are very friendly and helpfull. The rooms are a good size and the bathrooms are...

I got to this hotel because of a wrong booking with another. Fortunately the hotel is really nice with a free shuttle to the station or sites. It is walking distance to a big park and temple. it was a nice break of peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo.

Firstly the location of this hotel is great and you can reach most of the main attractions via a short taxi ride from there. The service staff is mostly friendly and very helpful. Only the night reception team was surprisingly unfriendly especially for Japanese standards. The rooms are modern and big for Japanese standards. However the bed is not good...

Had a few nights in the Kyoto Brighton with my fiancee. It's in a fairly good location right in the middle of most of the tourist spots and very nice internally with a great looking lobby. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurants their are on the expensive side and I feel don't provide good value for money but...

The lobby, the rooms, the decor is all beautiful. Rooms are spacious, well appointed, and with all the amenities you could imagine and expect. The staff is very professional and the breakfast was really nice, either the western or Japanese. Will be staying again when I visit Kyoto.

Very beautiful exterior and lobby. The rooms are spacious, the beds are large, and the staff is incredibly attentive & polite. The breakfast is also delicious. The only knock some folks seem to have on this place is it's slightly separated from a lot of tourist spots in Kyoto but I had zero problem with this. The neighborhood is incredibly...

Stayed at Kyoto Brighton in late fall 2016. Hotel was very spacious and well appointed. We enjoyed the pastries in the lobby cafe and also renting bicycles to tour the city. The only drawback was the remoteness of the hotel from the center of town. They have a shuttle service available which helped offset this deficiency.

My partner and I stayed at a "Superior Double" room for 3 nights during foliage season. We are very happy we did that, and the Kyoto Brighton Hotel will be definitely one of options we will consider for next time we visit Kyoto. When we were planning our trip, we were looking for a room: - that is non-smoking, -...

The hotel is quiet, beautiful and just cozy. It is definitely a 5 star experience the rooms are huge. The one only downside is that it is a bit out of the way from the city center. They do provide shuttle service to the local subway station but it's only available from 8:10AM - 9:10PM (pick up/drop off at exit...

Stayed here three nights and had a great experience. We had a superior twin room and it was very spacious. Bathroom was also very big, with a large bath/shower stall. Breakfast buffet was great, with mostly western style foods.

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.
