Not just for the location that is very convenient inside the amazing Kyoto central station with a lot of shops and restaurants but the hotel is also amazing. Very beautiful and clean. The corridors and decoration are very beautiful and so is the reception. Great staff in the very polite Japanese way. I had a dinner in the cheapest restaurant in the hotel and the food and service were amazing, and I ate a wonderful beef , very tasteful. The room was very spacious , the bathroom in a high Japanese standard, very clean , soft towels, strong shower and large. Flat panel Tv with a lot of western channels. Great service also in very special Kyoto. Great views of kyoto city and train station. Amazing hotel not just for location.

The hotel is in the train station so a couple less cab fares to worry about. There is every food and shopping right there for you. We had a king bed room. The room was small. Don't worry if you forgot your toothbrush.This hotel had the best wireless internet I've come across. The bellhops are all female which puzzled me for a moment. The staff is excellent and very helpful.

I really like the location above Kyoto station. It definitely makes it very easy to get around. The room is adequate, but not large per se, but it's large for rooms in Japan. There are a number of food options nearby and shopping down the escalator or within walking distance. It's a very "city" Kyoto location, so if you're looking for a peaceful ryokan-type experience, this is not it.

Staff has been great.

I'll definitely stay here again when I come back to Kyoto.

I always stay here when I go to Kyoto for vacation. It is right above the Kyoto station and you can go to Uji and Nara from the station. It is also quite convenient to catch bus or a taxi downstairs. Rooms are big and spacious which is not easy to find in Japan. Bathroom is big with nice and clean bathtub. Concierge is quite helpful and patient. Service is always prompt and friendly. They have package mailing service at the lobby.

Room Tip: If you prefer quiet room, request the room facing the cityview. This is a huge long hotel and best to request for a room nearby the elevator.

The hotel is at the Kyoto Station which is also connected to the bus and subway station. The station complex has a Isetan departmental store. It is also connected to an underground shopping mall. The property is a typical 4-star hotel with all the business and tourist amenities. Some of the rooms face the station platforms and you can see trains pulling in and away. However, the rooms are well insulated so noise is not an issue. I like this hotel for its excellent location as you can get straight into the hotel once you arrive in Kyoto by train, and you can practically go anywhere you like from the train, bus and subway stations which are just footsteps away.
