“Outstanding hotel”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Hotel has managed to create the spirit of old Kyoto while having the most modern conveniences and beautiful, quite, relaxing rooms. Love this place and cannot wait to return. Take a cab from the Kyoto train station - it looks a lot closer on google maps than it is!!

If youre going to stay in a hotel while visiting Kyoto as opposed to a ryokan The Regency ticks all the boxes. It is in a good loaction - near a lot of sights, near the older parts of town and is walkable from the station - helpful giving the high cost of taxis and the often busy traffic. Service is good, staff are friendly and helpful and rooms are well appointed.

The hotel is great as a base to explore Kyoto: good location, very comfortable rooms, but what makes it truly special is the service: this was our first visit to Kyoto and the staff at the concierge desk was absolutely great helping us planning our days, taking into consideration the family situation (young children), weather, avoiding busiest hours, etc

I was attending a conference in Osaka and chose to stay at Hyatt Regency Kyoto. I would have to say that the hotel is so good, it is worth the extra commute. I particularly like the bamboos next to the rooms and main restaurant. So green, so leafy and so serene -- it was unreal. Having a cup of coffee in the morning while staring at the bamboos by the window definitely elevates the mood.

Service, room and the hotel overall are spotless. One minor confusion is how the rooms are numbered. They all start with '1', so a room number of 14xx is on the 4th floor.

Location is great too. Walking distance to some great temples and not far from tourist attractions.

Finally for travelers who may need to go from Kyoto to Osaka. My daily train rides (30 min each way on the express train, which runs every 10-15 min during rush hour) between Kyoto and Osaka were... well... full of commuters but not over-crowded. Train cars are quite and clean as you will find in any Japanese public transportation. The Hyatt Regency is only a 5-min taxi ride away from the Kyoto JR train station so that helped a lot too. You can expect to get from Hyatt Kyoto to Osaka main station in 40 min if you know the train departure times.

Hi from Colin and Maria in Ireland. We had a lovely time at the Hyatt. It is very well placed for sightseeing, yet far enough from the centre to have a quiet and relaxed stay. For us it was the staff who made this a special holiday. The were quietly efficient, and friendly enough to get to know us. We ate in the Grill almost every evening. The quality and taste was excellent. To thank us for dining with them, the floor manager gave us our last meal for free! We were very surprised.
The concierge desk staff was very helpful, no matter what we wanted to do, they made sure we had the information or indeed, did things for us to make life easy. Our room was very comfortable
with a great bathroom. We would go back again if we only had more money!

Kyoto is a stunning city and the hotel is in. A fantastic location for sightseeing and for access to Kyoto's great public transport. The staff speaks English which is extremely useful and can assist with bus/train schedules, directions, restaurants. And across and down a street from the hotel is an amazing local family run coffee shop called Amazon Cafe! Go, sit at the counter and order the Japanese egg sandwich a delicious coffee! When I go back (and I will) I will def stay at the Hyatt again.
