a wonderful stay”

great location (on top of Nijo Castle). FREE shuttle bus between the hotel to Kyoto Station. very good english speaking staff. beautiful lobby and lounge. Big Rooms in Japanese standards.
none.

we visited Japan for our honeymoon and reserved Ana Hotel in advance. Upon arrival we discovered that we ordered the wrong room type and got a standard(two separate beds) room. We asked if we could get a different room with a double bed, and offered to pay the difference. The lovely Kimono wearing staff assured us that there is a room available and that no extra charge is necessary. we got a great room viewing Nijo Castle, very big room in Japanese standards, great comfortable bed and a very nice bathroom/shower. There is a FREE shuttle bus from the hotel to Kyoto station every 15 minutes, and another one from the Station to the Hotel, again every 15 minutes. This was very helpful as it was raining like hell during our visit. our suitcases and us remained dry and it also saved us the trouble of finding the hotel (those of you who've been to Japan knows how hard this can sometimes be). We didn't eat there but the lounge and restaurants seemed great. we made some local phone calls and they didn't charge us. over all, I fully recommend this hotel for anyone in Kyoto.

Over-expectation and impressive”

Easy to access from public transport, central of the city, Friendly staffs

ANA Crowne Plaza Kyoto was really impressed my wife and I. At first we were really afraid that it would be difficult to find the hotel and also we traveled by public transport from Train and bus but it was very easy to find. The hotel was next to the bus stop so you won't miss it. It was central of the city and one most important thing, the hotel has bus transfer to JR station. :D

Attentive staff, good location and closeness to the subway.

Just 2 nights in the ANA Crowne Plaza, but an excellent short stay nonetheless. The staff at check-in were friendly and efficient as we had come to expect in Japan. However, the outstanding staff member was Simon, an expat, who was knowledgeable and helpful in organising day tours and recommending places to visit.

Luxurious hotel, across from Nijo Castle”

Location and ambiance

The Ana Hotel was more luxurious than we had expected, which is both good and bad. Everything was high class and very clean, and the free shuttle to Kyoto Station made it easy to get around. It is right across the street from Nijo Castle, and a short walk to the Imperial Castle. We explored the area and found an "alley" of shops nearby which appeared to be where the locals shop. It was very quaint and affordable. We spent an afternoon shopping there. There was a supermarket, so we were able to stock up on some food for lunch and breakfast. There was a refrigerator in our room.

Ana Crown Plaza Hotel Kyoto”

- Very friendly staff - Nice, big rooms - Close to public transport
- A little bit 'far' away from the center of town

We stayed in the Ana Crown Plaza Hotel in Kyoto for 3 nights and really enjoyed it. We continued to choose ANA after we stayed there because we were really happy with the value for money. I would definately recommend to stay in this hotel. The only 'negative' point is that it's a bit far from the center of town.

beautiful, convenient, relatively cheap

ANA Crowne was a great choice for Kyoto. They offer a fast and convenient shuttle bus right from the main train hubs. The hotel is beautiful, very high ceilings, and a good business center with wifi. It is also quite close to all of the main attractions in Kyoto. I would highly recommend this hotel. The rooms were large and clean, staff was very friendly and professional, and helpful.

enjoyable stay in Kyoto”

Spacious room and traditional japanese scenery through the window well-equipped bathroom with lots of complimentary hair and skin care products staff are very helpful, most of them can speak fluent English Free shuttle bus to and from Kyoto station (4 rides/hour)
not so close to Kyoto downtown

Ana Hotel Kyoto offered us a very nice stay in Kyoto. It is very close to the Nijo Castle which provides a traditional Japanese atmosphere there. The most impressive thing is the staff can speak very good English. They were very helpful when they guided us for all transportation. Also, I like their free shuttle bus which brought lots of convenience to us. I didn't try the hot spring as it closed at 10:30pm which is somehow a bit early after shopping in downtown. All in all, Ana hotel is very good hotel for relaxation!!

Nice and comfortable hotel.”

Comfortable, clean, English staff.

This hotel is very nice and large for Japanese hotels. It's an equivalent to like a Holiday Inn. Rooms are big. Nice and clean, big bathroom, comfortable beds. Few restaurants on site. Hotel shuttle which is a huge plus to/from the Kyoto station. If you don't want to pay more for hotel convenience rests on site, just take the free hotel shuttle to the Kyoto station. So many restaurants to choose from there, plus shopping. Free in room wi-fi and bottle water. Hotel is next to the Nijo Castle, so not much around there, that's why they have shuttle. But close to subway.

Excellent and helpful staff, Kyoto Station shuttle bus
None that I found

The hotel is situated directly over the road from Nijo Castle, which you will definitely want to see, and is also very close to a subway station. Perhaps the most useful transport option is the hotel's own free shuttle bus, which runs regularly each day to and from Kyoto Rail Station, where you can find plenty of shopping, food options and transport links. We found the hotel very clean, extremely well-presented and decorated and an entirely pleasant and enjoyable place to stay. The staff are friendly, efficient and extremely helpful. When we return to Kyoto, we will definitely stay in this hotel.

Close to subway, free shuttle bus to Kyoto station, spacious rooms

The hotel looks flash when you walk into the lobby, and the staff are very attentive. The rooms are quite large by Japanese standards, though a bit dated. I got a very good deal with the room rate, but there were significant extra charges for breakfast and use of the pool and gym. The location is convenient, being about 1-2 minutes walk from a subway station, and there is a free shuttle bus every 15 minutes to Kyoto railway station.

Enjoyable stay at mid-range Hotel”

1. Efficient, friendly staff. 2. Free shuttle bus to/from Kyoto Station. 3. Comfortable bed & pillows.

On balance, we enjoyed our stay at the Hotel, which is pleasantly located across the road from Nijo Castle. We slept well thanks to the comfortable bed & pillows together with a satisfactory air-conditioner. There was easy City Bus access to the Kinkakuji/Uzumasa area in one direction & to Nishi-Honganji Temple, & on to Kyoto Station, in the other. It is also only a few minutes walk to the Nijojo-mae Station on the Tozai City Subway line. The small Hotel gardens are particularly impressive, especially the waterfall & pond just alongside the Lobby. My only negative comments are that our room & bathroom, in particular, were small even by Japanese standards. Second, despite having a non-smoking room, there was a very strong smell of cigarette smoke in the hallway near our door, which I suspect came from the Castle Suite nearby, that leaked into our room & necessitated running the dehumidifier continuously as well as buying an air freshener. Finally, I emailed the Hotel a week before arriving to ask where my wife & I could catch the Hotel shuttle on our arrival at Kyoto Station but I did not receive a response.
