2023 Travelers' Choice Best of the Best
A lush grove of bamboo marks the entrance to Hyatt Regency Kyoto in Higashiyama Shichijo, a leafy district suffused with the elegance of the old capital that is only 10 minutes away from Kyoto Station by taxi. Feel warmly welcomed in our contemporary hotel where tradition and modernity meets. Our team of expert concierges carefully curates tours and programs that offer insight into Japanese culture, meeting the needs of business and leisure travelers alike. The Rooms: Modern taste meets traditional style here, with artful hangings of antique kimono fragments and the soft light of paper lamps. The Locale: Even within historic Kyoto, Higashiyama is notable for its rich past as home to the imperial court. The Flavors: Three restaurants offer Italian trattoria style dining, exquisite Japanese cuisine, and cafe classics prepared in a wood-burning oven. The Possibilities: A 40-meter surround screen and live web-based projection enable event planners to immerse their guests in the experience. The Treatments: Seasoned therapists deliver Eastern healing traditions like shiatsu, acupuncture, moxibustion, and fermented hinoki powder bath at Riraku Spa.

Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Hyatt Regency Kyoto garners acclaim for its blend of traditional Japanese atmosphere and modern amenities, with travelers consistently praising the attentive service and diverse dining options. While the hotel's location is celebrated for its proximity to attractions, opinions are split on its centrality. The tranquil ambiance, enhanced by maiko performances and Japanese decor, is a highlight for guests, although some find the rooms on the smaller side. Cleanliness is a standout feature, yet views on value for money vary among visitors.

We had a lovely stay with our 2 young kids. Rooms were spacious and clean. Service was amazing - hotel staff so helpful, accommodating, and kind. Location was convenient with small a store and quick places to eat nearby. It was also a quick cab ride to the Kyoto station and Gion, Downtown area. Will stay again next time we are in Kyoto.

Hotel's Favorite
The hotel location is good, a short 5 minutes walk to the subway and it's a couple of stops to Gion station the main shopping area (department stores, Gion, Pontocho). Taxis are cheap so you can get a ride to nearby kiyomizu dera temple or fushimi inari in 10-15 minutes from the hotel. The hotel provides complimentary taxi service from kyoto train station (where we arrived by Shinkansen) to the hotel - you need to cross the road after exiting Hachijo west exit to the Ibis where the taxis are located. The gentleman at the front desk who checked us in on 13Feb noon was extremely friendly, professional and welcoming. We managed to get an early check-in into our balcony deluxe room which was bigger than expected; as it had another adjoining room with 2 beds and a toilet. The room was huge and cosy. The large bathroom with the bath tub was amazing. The only down side was that the room faced the road so you could hear traffic, but it was not too bad. The daily breakfast was another highlight of our stay. The service staff were extremely attentive and professional (special mention to the gentleman who was at the coffee area). The food was great and it was an exceptionally memorable experience seeing snow fall in a quiet garden whilst having breakfast. The lady at the concierge was also friendly and knowledgeable. Overall, the hotel staff made this stay an impressive one. It really made the guest feel at home and valued. I can't wait to be back!

This is one of the best hotel experience my wife and I ever had. We were here for our honeymoon and the staff were so great and accommodating. The location was close to the Kyoto station and buses were able to take us to different parts of Kyoto. We can't wait for our next trip here

Located not far from the main eating & shopping strips.. short taxi ride to the famous temples & shrines. Lovely hotel with excellent customer service staff who is very responsive to your requests. Highly recommended if you are a couple or a quiet business trip away from the crowd.

I really enjoyed my stay here in January 2024. The staff are great, the breakfast is exceptional, the Maiko show was great to watch, the free taxi ride from the train station to the hotel is super nice, and the vibes at the Bar in the basement were great. Special shout out to the breakfast manager for helping our group with to-go iced coffees on our final day. Very kind! My only gripe is about their wifi and odd hotel setup. The wi-fi was incredibly slow and the front desk staff said they would have IT take a look at it the next day, but we were checking out the next day. The hotel is built weird so you have to take a few different elevators to get to the gym, but the gym itself was nice and well stocked.

I loved my time at the Hyatt Regency Kyoto. The hotel is conveniently located close to Gion (walking distance) and a ton of site seeing destinations. However, the best part of this hotel is the amazing staff. We felt so catered to and well taken care of! The spa was beautiful and the team was so helpful arranging last minute appts.

The hotel is excellent, and its location is incredibly convenient. It is within walking distance to popular sightseeing spots such as Kiyomizu-dera, taking around 20 minutes. Taxis to and from Kyoto Station can be reached within 10 minutes. The hotel staff, particularly the concierge team, are extremely helpful. Whenever we arrived at the hotel entrance, the concierge would assist us in picking up our luggage or opening the taxi door. The room is spacious and comfortable. However, the soundproofing is not very effective, as occasional noises from outside can be heard.
