Hotel rooms for 2a/2c ?

Can someone please help? We are a family of 2 adults and 2 children (ages 14,12) spending 2 weeks in Japan in May 2008. We will be spending a few days in Kyoto and I am having trouble finding hotels that have bedding where we can all stay in the same room, as the max capacity seems to be 3. Even those that have 2 double beds, state a max of 3. Am I just a dummy (please don't answer this part of my question) or are we going to need to book 2 rooms most of the time?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Almost all Japanese hotels have "3 is the max" policy for some wired reason. The way we, Japanese deal with it is to go ahead and book for 3 and just show up as a group of 4. If you are staying in a full service hotel, they're absolutely OK with it. I've done this at the Granvia, Westin Miyako, ANA, Hyatt, Kyoto Royal and few others. Which hotel in Kyoto are you interested in?

Hi,

Travelled as a family of 4. 2 adults/2 children (8yrs, 10yrs). In Tokyo we stayed at Sheba Park Hotel. Required two separate rooms.

In Kyoto, stayed at The Brighton, two separate rooms with adjoining door . Moved to The Westin Miyako, stayed in ryokan styled guesthouse which slept the four of us then moved to the hotel and required two separate rooms with adjoining door. Travelled to Osaka only because all hotels in Kyoto were overbooked at that time and required two separate rooms (connecting door) at the Sheraton Miyako.

Because of the age of your children a ryokan styled accomodation may be suitable.....younger children are not always welcomed.

Others on the site suggest renting apartments so it may pay to ask

enjoy :-)

If you don't mind staying in a Japanese ryokan, check this one out:

The location and rates are great. Choose a room with a private bath if you don't want to use a public one :-)

Granvia Kyoto has rooms which can accommodate up to 5 (but probaby cost twice what 2 twins would?)r
