This hotel was just completed in Kyoto in summer of 2011. I travel to Kyoto about 8 times a year and have stayed in all the hotels in this area of the city. This is the best area in Kyoto to stay for convenience. The Kyoto Royal Hotel, and the Kyoto Hotel Okura, and now The Royal Park Hotel all share this excellent location. But, currently this hotel is hands down the best value in my opinion.
The place is brand new and it shows. Not tired like the nearby Kyoto Royal. Prices are currently excellent, nowhere near the higher prices of the Kyoto Okura with the current yen value, that makes a big difference. The rooms are smallish, to a typical Japanese standard. But, they are attractive, well appointed and comfortable. If you are all about luxury, the Okura will offer more high end amenities and larger rooms. But, this is a much better value often at a third the price or less.
Location, price and overall appearance, these people currently have the best combination in this area of Kyoto. Going back next week.
