Spacious room with good location
compliments to the bartenders
Rooms were comparatively better than the ones in tokyo in terms of size. However front desk officers were quite careless. nonetheless still very helpful

Best location to subway & restaurants
Next to City Hall subway station. 10 min walk to Shijo.
Stayed 4 nights and enjoyed the fabulous discount. Definitely good value for money given its best location, modern interior, and spotlessly clean room. The discovery of whole street full of restaurants behind the hotel was a nice surprise. There were also a large convenient store and Starbucks down the Shijo main road towards the river. The only improvements needed are adding in-room free wifi and fixing the morning call system which did not work. Overall, this hotel is very much alive with nice ambience.

Very nice part of the City
This location was great for our sight seeing
The location and surrounding temples were so nice. We were treated very nicely by the staff who assisted us with many requests each day.

Good CP value
Good service
We stay here for 3 night, twin room, the room is not small with 22m2. Location is good, close to shopping centre and market, just a bit far from the the train station (about 10mins walk), but close to a subway station which is just 1-2 mins. Service is good as well, the lobby is big and grand, the staff speak english.

Lovely Hotel with Very Spacious Room
Spacious Room
We stayed in Kyoto Royal Hotel & Spa for three nights in December. Location is convenient enough, just a couple of subway stations away from JR Kyoto Station (you have to change subway once). There is underground passage to the Hotel from the subway station. The room is very spacious. humidifiers are provided upon request as compared to other Japanese hotels we have been to, which humidifiers are naturally placed in the room. Other than that, it was a very pleasant stay in the Hotel.

our regular hotel in kyoto
convenient location
i stayed at this hotel for 3 nights recently with my wife and 2 teenage kids. this is my second stay at the hotel in my second visit to kyoto. we decided to stay at this hotel again having stayed the last time my wife and i were in kyoto. the main reason is the location along one of the main shopping streets surrounded by shops and restaurants and several bus stops. the subway station is only about 10 minutes walk from the hotel so it is a great place to stay at fairly reasonable prices. everything is clean except the hotel room is quite small but big enough to open our 2 suitcases on the floor. personally, i would prefer that they upgrade the rooms a bit and up the prices because the location is great and there will always be people choosing this hotel simply for the location. other facilities are ok but the staff are all very helpful and speak decent english. i wish they would provide wifi in the room and not just in the lobby.

Great location and comfort room for the price
Very good accomodation for the price, recent furnitures
Located at the limit of the Center Kyoto and North area. 5 minutes walk from subway station. A lot of restaurants around. From the hotel, you are 10 minutes walk from the great Nishiki Market and 15 minutes from Gion district. This is by far the more luxurious room that we had during our trip to Japan and for the same price range. The room was clean and the furnitures very comfortable.

Great location
Good service and fantastic location
Had a great time at Kyoto and having a hotel close to the train station is really handy. Rooms were small but clean and nice breakfast too.
