Knowing that we would arrive at Kansai airport after 10PM, we decided to spend the night at the closest hotel to the airport before starting our tour of Japan the next day. We landed at Terminal 2, so we catched the free shuttle bus that takes you both to this hotel and Terminal 1 (Terminal 1 is just in front of the hotel).
The first impression of the place is that this was a luxury hotel because the lobby is really huge. In addition to that, the Japanese staff was extremely polite, so we felt initially as if we were in Buckingham Palace. The check-in process was done then quickly and efficiently thanks also to the fact that they speak sufficient English. By the way, there are some computers for guests in the lobby but they cost 300 Yen for 15 minutes.
The room we got was comfortable, elegant, very clean and its size was ok considering the Japanese standards (picture attached). Beds were not so high and mattresses were somehow hard. Nevertheless they were comfortable and we had a perfect sleep (each bed had also a hard and a soft pillow). This was also possible because it was very quiet and we didn't hear any planes at all.
Finally, we cannot mention the breakfast or any meals because we didn't eat in the hotel. But we did buy some Japanese food in the shop next door before taking the train in the morning to go to Kyoto (the train station lies between the hotel and Terminal 1).
